ADDISON REED RUMORS & GOSSIP

Arizona Diamondbacks top five disappointments of 2015

The Arizona Diamondbacks, at 42-45, are doing better than most people expected. Still, the surprising season doesn’t come without a few disappointments. Here are my top five: 5. Addison Reed Any fan who watched Addison Reed pitch in 2014 isn’t all that surprised about his performance this year. With an ERA of 4.25 in 2014, Reed hardly proved to be a successful closer. Still...

Former Chicago White Sox closer Addison Reed demoted to triple-A

The Arizona Diamondbacks recently banished former Chicago White Sox closer Addison Reed to Triple-A after a mediocre 2014, and now a pretty poor first third of 2015. Reed, a 26-year old righthander, was traded to the D’backs in December, 2013. In exchange, the Sox picked up 3rd baseman Matt Davidson. At the time of the 2013 trade, Reed had finished the season with a 3.79 ERA,...

D-Backs Reliever Addison Reed Quits Smokeless Tobacco After Tony Gwynn’s Death

Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn’s death served as a wake-up call to Arizona Diamondbacks relief pitcher Addison Reed. Gwynn, who was diagnosed with salivary gland cancer in 2010, publicly stated that he believed his years of smokeless tobacco use throughout his career was the cause.  He passed away at the age of 54 last Monday, and upon hearing the news, Reed was inspired to make a...

D-backs' Reed quits tobacco out of respect for Gwynn

PHOENIX -- Arizona right-hander Addison Reed admired Tony Gwynn so much that when San Diego State offered him a scholarship on his visit in 2007, Reed did not bother with the rest of the schools on his recruiting list. A hug from Gwynn sealed the deal.  After learning Monday of Gwynn's passing from mouth cancer, which he attributed to an addiction to chewing tobacco, Reed paid tribute...

Reed likes the 'pen, and D-backs have him written in

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Tony Gwynn did not have to look far for a replacement for ace starter Stephen Strasburg at San Diego State in 2010. Addison Reed was the logical choice after two strong seasons in the program, and he handled the job well. The only thing Reed would have liked better was to have stayed in the bullpen.  No one seems wired for relief more than the new Diamondbacks...

Addison Reed Video Bombs Matt Davidson

During Matt Davidson’s interview on Intentional Talk, Addison Reed (the player the Diamondbacks received in return for Davidson) video bombs his interview. Reed was known as a bit of prankster during his brief stint with the Chicago White Sox, but I have to admit this was pretty funny. Not quite as funny, Chris Rose. Seriously.
