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 reliever quits tobacco because of Tony Gwynn

Believe it or not, Tony Gwynn is still coaching despite his death last week.  Of course, it’s figuratively, and in this case, not necessarily about baseball.  Arizona Diamondbacks relief pitcher Addison Reed, a former player under Gwynn at San Diego State, took the news of his death and acted right away.  He gave up smokeless tobacco.  Gwynn died of oral cancer, almost certainly...

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 struggles to close it out

PHOENIX -- Closer Addison Reed had his string of five consecutive save conversions broken Monday, when the Diamondbacks came up an inning short of carrying their strong road run into Chase Field. Danny Espinosa tied the game with a leadoff home run in the ninth inning off Reed, and pinch-hitter Kevin Frandsen hit a two-out homer to lift Washington to a 6-5 victory over the D-backs...

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. [RELATED: Addison Reed Traded for Matt Davidson] Addison...
