Red Sox "Moving Closer" To Deal For Addison Reed

The Mets will receive righty relief prospects Stephen Nogosek, Jamie Callahan and Gerson Bautista, a source confirmed to The Record's Bob Klapisch. All of them are ranked among the top 30 prospects for the Red Sox.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal tweeted on Sunday that Reed is a "focus" for the Red Sox in trade talks with the Mets.

It was also reported yesterday that the Sox were in on Mets closer Addison Reed, and this morning it finally happened. Before his trade from Arizona, the righthander had even spent a portion of the season in the minors.

Bautista, whose fastball has been clocked in the upper 90s, was signed in 2013 out of the Dominican Republic and has been playing at High-A Salem, where he is 3-2 with a 5.16 ERA in 27 outings. While his most recent run as a closer doesn't move the needle on his value all that much, Reed's successes in the ninth make for icing on the cake of a successful run with the Mets.

Boston's dealings ended with the Reed acquisition, though. He primarily served as the set-up man to Jeurys Familia during his tenure in NY but Familia has appeared in just 11 games this year.

In 48 appearances this season, he's pitched 49 innings with a 2.57 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP.

The Boston Red Sox have found their setup man. He also tweeted that Boston will take about $2.6 million in money owed to Reed, who will become a free agent at the end of the season.

Reed became a Met at the deadline in 2015, and really hit his stride once he arrived in NY. "I think it may have had some scuffles here and there, but I think predominantly through the entirety of the year that we've been a pretty good bullpen". It's not a major return, but the Mets couldn't really expect one for Reed.

The Red Sox entered last night with the third-best bullpen ERA in baseball, second-best in the American League, but Kelly has not pitched back-to-back days, Barnes has been prone to inconsistencies, and Heath Hembree has been susceptible to left-handers. Callahan is closes to the majors.
