Red Sox Trade Rumors: Boston Focused On Addison Reed Deal

The Boston Red Sox are looking to upgrade their bullpen before the trade deadline and have apparently set their focus on Addison Reed, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

Boston has had talks with the New York Mets about several players over the last few weeks, including Reed, Asdrubal Cabrera, T.J. Rivera, Curtis Granderson and Jay Bruce.

Reed is set to be a free agent after the season, meaning the Red Sox may not have to part with their top prospects in order to land him. His pending free agency is also motivating the Mets to move him.

The trade deadline is Monday at 4:00 pm ET.

Reed has a 2.57 ERA with 19 saves and 48 strikeouts in 49 innings in 48 appearances this season.
