Boston Red Sox acquire reliever Addison Reed for three prospects

Mets pitcher Addison Reed delivers against the St. Louis

The Boston Red Sox are set to acquire reliever Addison Reed from the New York Mets, according to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

Five teams were still in on Mets reliever Addison Reed as of Sunday, but the Red Sox were the ones to land him.

The Red Sox will send right-handed pitching prospect Jamie Callahan, right-handed pitching prospect Stephen Nogosek, and right-handed pitching prospect Gerson Bautista to the Mets. He's been excellent, but he's also a rental: his contract is up at the end of the 2017 season. Of the three, he has the best mix of pitches. However, all three also have a tendency to be a little wild. He has 48 strikeouts with only six walks (and a career best 3.0 percent walk rate) in 49 innings. The 2012 second-round pick was once the youngest pitcher in the New York-Penn League, and is now a 22-year-old reliever in Triple-A after failing as a starter in the lower levels of Boston's system. Both are in High-A and aren't expected to arrive in the major leagues until 2019. If that's the case, he could replace someone like Fernando Salas, who has been a disappointment this season. Nogosek was a sixth-round draft pick out of OR in 2016. The trade for Carson Smith wasn't an overpay, but Smith has only pitched two and two-thirds innings for the team, and that was last season before he underwent Tommy John surgery. He can crank up the velos with his four-seamer and it tends to miss bats.

Bautista, whose fastball has been clocked in the upper 90s, was signed in 2013 out of the Dominican Republic and has been playing at High-A Salem, where he is 3-2 with a 5.16 ERA in 27 outings.

Callahan is 5-2 with a 3.21 ERA splitting time in Class AA and Class AAA, and has fanned 36 batters in 29 innings. He's an intriguing, but raw, prospect at this point.
