    • Red Sox's Addison Reed: Settles into setup role
      By RotoWire Staff

      Reed pitched a scoreless eighth inning in Friday's 4-1 win over the Yankees. Reed has been quite effective over the past two-plus weeks, having allowed one run (0.93 ERA) while striking out 11 over 9.2 innings. Included in that run are five holds and 4.1 scoreless innings against the Yankees, Boston's closest pursuer in the AL East. Reed's stabilized what has been at times an unsettled setup group.

    • Red Sox's Addison Reed: Blows up Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Reed (1-3) allowed four runs on two hits and a walk while not recording an out in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Yankees. Reed was entrusted with a 3-0 lead, but hit the first batter he faced -- the first batter he's hit since 2014 -- before allowing a home run, a single and a walk. That's all manager John Farrell needed, as he pulled him in favor of Joe Kelly, who wasn't much better. Boston's bullpen has been good all season and more so since the All-Star break, but Friday's meltdown was a gut-punch loss. It turned a potential 5.5-game lead in the AL East to 3.5 while giving the Yankees confidence heading into Saturday's game. Farrell needs to find consistent late-game roles from the mix of Reed, Matt Barnes, Joe Kelly and Brandon Workman.

    • Red Sox's Addison Reed: Shuts down White Sox
      By RotoWire Staff

      Reed struck out two and gave up a hit in a scoreless inning of relief in Friday's 3-2 extra-inning win over the White Sox. Reed was the first of five relievers to throw scoreless innings, holding Chicago in check until Mitch Moreland's walkoff home run in the 11th inning. When the Red Sox acquired Reed, it was thought he would be the eighth-inning setup man, but he's entered his last two games to start the seventh inning. Manager John Farrell told Tim Britton of the Providence Journal after Thursday's game that he'll use Reed anywhere from the seventh inning or later.

    • Red Sox's Addison Reed: Officially dealt to Boston
      By RotoWire Staff

      Reed passed his physical Monday and was officially traded to the Red Sox in exchange for minor-leaguers Stephen Nogosek, Jamie Callahan and Gerson Bautista, Anthony DiComo of reports. Reed will finish out the season in Boston's bullpen, and while he won't be in line for any saves in his new role, his 2.57 ERA. 8.8 K/9 and 1.1 BB/9 across 49 innings this season still make him a viable fantasy option, especially in leagues that count holds. As for the Mets, they'll turn to A.J. Ramos as their new closer for the time being.

    • Red Sox's Addison Reed: Appears headed to Boston
      By RotoWire Staff

      Reed will be traded to the Red Sox, assuming his medical reports are cleared, Mark Feinsand of reports. The Mets will receive three prospects, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports. The Mets will ship their closer to the Junior Circuit as they continue to rebuild. Reed has spun an excellent 2.57 ERA with an 8.8 K/9, 1.1 BB/9 and 19 saves across 49 innings, but he's set to assume a setup role behind Boston stopper Craig Kimbrel, so the new acquisition's fantasy owners will be robbed of a source of saves. As for the Mets, they'll slide the recently acquired A.J. Ramos into the ninth inning, but they may also incorporate Jeurys Familia (shoulder) if he can return this season.
