|J.J. Putz could challenge Addison Reed for closer's job |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/9/14) The Diamondbacks made a big acquisition this offseason by picking up reliever Addison Reed in a trade with the White Sox. However, his arrival hasn't deterred J.J. Putz from entering camp with hopes of regaining the closer's role after he posted a 1.27 ERA in his final 27 appearances last season.
"I definitely want to close," Putz told The Arizona Republic. "Other than the beginning of my year last year, I thought I threw the ball really well when I came back (following stints on the disabled list for elbow and finger injuries). I feel good. I’ve been throwing more bullpens before spring started than I ever have. I’ve been working with (pitching coach Mike Harkey) on some things. Everything feels good."
According to the Republic, Putz is regarded as the leader for the closer's job, particularly among the pitching staff.
"I think KT (General Manager Kevin Towers) and Gibby (manager Kirk Gibson) are both extremely loyal people,” Putz said, when asked about the chance he’s being given to win the job. "I’m glad that they are at least giving me the opportunity, and I’m going to do everything I can to win that job when the time is appropriate to win that job. If it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen. The bottom line is just getting to the playoffs and seeing what happens."
|Diamondbacks acquire Addison Reed for Matt Davidson |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(12/16/13) According to MLB.com, the White Sox traded closer Addison Reed to the Diamondbacks in exchange for third baseman Matt Davidson on Monday.
Reed has served as the White Sox's closer the last two seasons and stands to fill the same role for the Diamondbacks. He notched 40 saves last season with a 3.79 ERA.
Davidson made his major league debut for the Diamondbacks in 2013, hitting .237 with three home runs and 12 RBI in 31 games. Baseball America ranked Davidson as Arizona's No. 4 prospect going into the 2014 season.

(9/28/13) White Sox closer Addison Reed worked his way around a two-out walk as he struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning to preserve a 6-5 win and his 40th save of the season. He is 40 of 48 in save chances, with a 3.79 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP in 7 1/3 innings.

(9/24/13) White Sox closer Addison Reed blew his eighth save and fell to 5-4 in his team's 5-4 loss to the Indians Tuesday, giving up a walk-off two-run home run to Jason Giambi in the ninth inning.
It was Reed's second blown save in his last three opportunities and third blown save of September. He owns a 3.84 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 71:22 K:BB ratio in 70 1/3 innings.
|Addison Reed nails down 39th save |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(9/23/13) White Sox closer Addison Reed earned his 39th save of the year Monday in a 3-2 win over the Blue Jays. Reed walked a batter in an otherwise uneventful ninth.
Reed needed 17 pitches to record three outs. His ERA is now at 3.62. The 24-year-old has gone 39 for 46 in save situations this season with 69 strikeouts over 69 2/3 innings.
|In 2013, closer Addison Reed was a top 10 relief-eligible pitcher in standard Head-to-Head formats and in the top 15 in Rotisserie. To his credit, Reed had 40 saves and a 1.11 WHIP for the White Sox, and those stats had much to do with his status as a top Fantasy reliever. He could repeat those numbers, but Reed isn't a lock to improve upon or even maintain his 3.79 ERA. Now with the Diamondbacks, Reed still stands to get plenty of save chances, but as a flyball pitcher who gets another tough park (Chase Field) in which to pitch his home games, Reed could cough up more than the half dozen homers that he has allowed in each of the last two seasons. While he is also a strikeout-per-inning pitcher (career 9.3 K/9), that's not enough to make Reed a strikeout elite in this Era of the Whiff. Reed may appear to be a reasonable choice as a low-end No. 1 RP, but it's best to target him as your second reliever in most mixed leagues.
