2. Addison Reed

Addison Reed was another reliever that was a trade target during the trade deadline this season. However, unlike Hand, Reed was actually involved in a trade that sent him from the New York Mets to the Boston Red Sox. Before that deal transpired, the Dodgers were in the mix to pick up the right-handed reliever in efforts to bolster their bullpen.

Personally, acquiring Addison Reed seems like a great move for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Ignore the statistics, ignore the depth added, I just want to see the team add Reed simply because my last name is Reed. Wouldn’t that be awesome?

Okay, back from my inner monologue. Reed would be a huge help in the Dodgers bullpen and is a perfect candidate to use as a setup guy. Reed has great stuff without a doubt. In two and a half seasons with the Mets Reed held a 2.09 ERA in 145 appearances with 156 strikeouts.

Not only that, Reed has experience closing games so he understands what it is like to perform under high-pressure situations. As the season dwindled down, the bullpen began to crack a tad and the very reliable Pedro Baez showed he couldn’t perform under pressure.

The Dodgers would not have that problem with Addison Reed. Not only is he one of the best pitchers available, he has the moxie to get the job done late in games. For around seven to eight million a year, Reed would be more than worth it.
