Red Sox acquire Addison Reed

Mets pitcher Addison Reed delivers against the St. Louis

After days of rumors, the New York Mets executed a deal for reliever, Addison Reed with the Boston Red Sox pending physicals.

According to the Boston Globe, the prospects heading to the Mets in the deal are pitchers Jamie Callahan, Gerson Bautista, and Stephen Nogosek.

Dombrowski did his job before 4 p.m. ET.

Reed, 28, is 1-2 with a 2.57 ERA in 48 appearances this season. With Joe Kelly on the shelf, Tyler Thornburg and Carson Smith out for the foreseeable future and Matt Barnes struggling, he'll be asked to do the same for the Red Sox, and his 2.09 ERA in two-plus seasons with the Mets suggests he's up for the task. The Red Sox's bullpen isn't bad, but it definitely needs help.

Reed was unlikely to return to the Mets since he should land a lucrative deal in free agency, making it important for the Mets to trade him before they would have lost him for nothing in the offseason.

But upon his arrival in New York, Reed flourished, posting a 1.17 ERA in 17 appearances. He has already racked up 19 saves between Greenville and Salem. He projects as a middle reliever and the hope is that he can be major league ready at some point this season.

Dujana had on earlier occasions escaped from the clutches of security forces who had been after him for quite a while. GOC Chinar Corps J S Sandhu said the operation began only after all trapped civilians were safely evacuated.

The rolling Chicago Cubs got a big lift when they acquired reliever Justin Wilson and catcher Alex Avila in a trade with the Detroit Tigers, bolstering their chance for another long playoff run.

Reed flourished as an eighth-inning bridge reliever to Jeurys Familia.

The move strengthens a Boston bullpen that has been one of the best in baseball this season.

Infielder Adam Rosales has been traded by the Oakland Athletics to the Arizona Diamondbacks for minor league right-hander Jeferson Mejia.

In dealing relatively low-level prospects for Reed and Nunez, the Sox addressed their needs without seriously mortgaging their future. To get him back on track would be key. Rosales was batting.234 with four homers and 27 RBIs in 71 games. He has an above average splitter and slider and is close to being Major League ready.
