Addison Reed earned his 29th save of the season after he threw a perfect ninth inning against the Marlins on Friday.
Reed has had his fair share of issues in 2014, including with the long ball (10 HR allowed), but he has managed to hold onto the closing gig in the desert despite blowing five saves along the way. However, he has now converted nine consecutive save opportunities dating back to July 18, while continuing to support an above average strikeout rate (10.58 K/9). Even with a bloated earned-run average (3.79), Reed will continue to be a solid fantasy option down the stretch as long as he can keep his walks to a minimum (12 BB through 49.1 IP).
