Red Sox acquire Reed from Mets
The Red Sox, desperate for relief help, have acquired Mets reliever Addison Reed Monday according to multiple reports.
Reed, who is a free agent at the end of the season, will take over the 8th inning set-up spot to closer Craig Kimbrel. Reed has 19 saves for the Mets this season to go along with a 2.57 ERA.
Boston will send three pitching prospects to the Mets - relievers Gerson Bautista, Jamie Callahan and Stephen Nogosek.
