Reed gave up one hit and struck out one in a shutout inning of relief during Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.

His spring ERA remains a bloated 10.13, but Reed has thrown three scoreless innings with a 5:0 K:BB since he corrected a flaw in his mechanics last weekend. In fact, all 20 pitches he's delivered in those three outings have been strikes. The 28-year-old is still expected to close for the Mets early in the season while Jeurys Familia serves a suspension, and Reed's ugly spring numbers could create an opportunity to land him at a bargain price.
