Reed should be a great addition to Boston's bullpen.

The New York Mets have reportedly traded closer Addison Reed to the Boston Red Sox.

According to's Jonathan Mayo, the Mets are getting three pitchers: Jamie Callahan, their second-round pick in 2012 and a Triple-A right-hander, Stephen Nogosek, a High-A right-hander out of the University of OR and Gerson Bautista. While they've made a couple of big moves (sending Lucas Duda to the Tampa Bay Rays, and acquiring AJ Ramos from the Marlins), there were still some big names on the Mets roster heading into the final day.

According to Rosenthal, the Red Sox will take on the remainder of Reed's salary owed to him from the Mets, which is about $2.6 million. 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. He's posted a 2.09 ERA while striking out 156 batters in 142 innings with the Mets, most recently recording 19 saves with a 2.57 ERA in 2017. Since Reed is only under contract for the remainder of the 2017 campaign, the Mets have always been rumored to be inclined to trade the soon-to-be free agent. Last season, he posted a 1.97 ERA with 91 strikeouts in 77.2 innings.
