Addison Reed walked one batter but managed to close out the Tigers with a scoreless ninth and preserve the Diamondbacks' 5-4 win on Tuesday for his 24th save of the season.
Reed limped into the break with a couple of blown opportunities, but he's come out off it strong with three-straight scoreless outings and three saves. It's very possible that Tony LaRussa cleans house at Chase Field and Reed is certainly a candidate to be dealt. It's not a guarantee, but based on contracts versus actual performance, LaRussa may just send a heap of folks packing and just rebuild from scratch. Continue with Reed for now, but just be ready to hit the waiver wire should he be dealt somewhere to act as a set-up man.
