Red Sox Get Reliever Addison Reed From Mets For Three Minor Leaguers

The Red Sox have traded for 28-year-old reliever Addison Reed, sending three pitching prospects -- Gerson Bautista, Jamie Callahan, and Stephen Nogosek -- to the Mets. (SoSH thread)

Reed has a 2.57 ERA this season (his seventh in the majors), with 48 strikeouts in 49 innings, and has converted 19 of 21 save opportunities. In 2016, Reed has a 1.97 ERA in 80 games. He will primarily pitch the eighth inning as a set-up man for Craig Kimbrel. Reed will be a free agent after this season.

A Mets official indicated "not much" when asked about if anything was going on concerning Addison Russell and the Red Sox."

"Makes sense since Addison Russell plays for the Cubs and Cafardo is actually talking about Addison Reed."
