(8/27): After GM Kevin Towers apparently viewed none of the Diamondbacks' internal options as clear-cut ninth-inning solutions entering the offseason, the Diamondbacks acquired Reed from the White Sox in December, naming him their closer after spring training. Reed has mostly underwhelmed thus far with his new team, posting a 3.68 ERA while giving up 10 home runs. On the positive side, he has gone 30-for-35 in save chances while striking out 60 batters in his 51.1 innings, but his high fly ball rates could eventually open the door for another reliever to scoop up saves. Beyond Reed, Ziegler probably ranks as the top closing alternative after racking up 13 saves late last season and putting up respectable numbers again in 2014. Perez and Marshall are also potential late-inning options.
