Diamondbacks demote former closer Addison Reed to Triple-A
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/22/15) The Diamondbacks optioned former closer Addison Reed to Triple-A Reno on Monday.
It's been a tough year for Reed, who lost his role as closer in mid-May. He is 2-2 with a 5.92 ERA in 25 appearances. He did pick up his third save last Monday against the Angels, tossing 1 1/3 scoreless innings in a 7-3 win. However, he was tagged for four runs in two-thirds inning Saturday against the Padres and has a 10.13 ERA in six appearances in June.
The Diamondbacks acquired Reed in a trade with the White Sox in Dec. 2013. Arizona dealt third base prospect Matt Davidson to Chicago. Reed is 3-9 with a 4.73 ERA in two seasons with Arizona.
Diamondbacks' Addison Reed makes adjustments, may return to closer
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/30/15) Diamondbacks pitcher Addison Reed lost the closer's job after giving up a grand slam on May 13.
Since losing the job, Reed has worked with Diamondback coaches to fix flaws in his mechanics. Among the most noticeable adjustments, Reed got rid of his leg kick and instead uses a slide step.
"Everything feels good," Reed said, per MLB.com. "Each time I've gone out it's felt better every time. Now I'm not thinking about anything other than trying to throw strikes. Not thinking anything about mechanics, just going out there trying to throw strikes."
Manager Chip Hale is satisfied with what he's seen and indicated that Reed would get to pitch in save situations again in the near future.
Diamondbacks RP Addison Reed gets win in relief on Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/29/15) Former Diamondbacks closer Addison Reed picked up a win in relief on Friday, as the D-Backs beat the Brewers 7-5. Reed entered the game in the seventh inning of a 4-4 tie. Arizona then scored a run in the top half of the eighth, making Reed the pitcher of record.
"He did a great job," manager Chip Hale said, per MLB.com. "Used his slider and his fastball, located them."
Reed (2-2) has now pitched three consecutive scoreless outings since being ousted as the team's closer.
Hale: Addison Reed out for now as Diamondbacks closer
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/15/15) Right-hander Addison Reed has both Diamondbacks saves this season. Who will get the third is anybody's guess.
Chip Hale has bounced Reed from the closer role, though he anticipates reinstating him once he finds his groove, per azcentral.com. He added that veteran submariner Brad Ziegler could be an option unless he is needed earlier in a game, which indicates that the current plan is closer-by-committee.
Reed has struggled throughout the year. He has allowed eight runs on 15 hits in 10 innings pitched. The last straw was Wednesday, when he blew a save by giving up four runs on three hits in one inning against Washington.
D-Backs P Addison Reed regrets pitch to Nats' Michael Taylor
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/13/15) It didn't take long for Diamondbacks pitcher Addison Reed to know Nationals outfielder Michael Taylor was about to do some damage on a pitch he'd just released.
Taylor, subbing in for the ejected Bryce Harper, took a 1-0 pitch deep to center field for a grand slam in the ninth inning. This became the difference in Washington's 9-6 win over the Diamondbacks.
"The ball, the grand slam that went out, was belt-high and over the middle. I haven't gone back and looked at it, but I can almost guarantee it was belt-high," Reed said, via MLB.com. "Right out of the hand, it felt like a terrible pitch, and he did what he was supposed to do with it."
|2014 summary: Addison Reed's first season as a Diamondback did not go well enough for him to rank among the top 20 relievers in Fantasy points, but it didn't go so poorly for him to lose the closer's role. Nailing down 32 saves in 38 chances and striking out 69 batters in 59 1/3 innings helped to keep Reed relevant in some Fantasy formats, but a 4.25 ERA and 1.21 WHIP limited his value to that of a low-end option.|
Playing time status: Despite his difficulties last season, Reed will return as the Diamondbacks' closer.
2015 outlook: Perhaps with a new regime in place in Arizona, Reed won't have as long of a leash. After three full seasons, Reed's owns a 4.20 career ERA, and with strong flyball tendencies, that may not improve anytime soon. Even as a No. 2 reliever in mixed leagues, he is risky. If at all possible, pass on Reed outside of deeper leagues.
