(9/25): After the Diamondbacks apparently viewed none of their internal options as clear-cut ninth-inning solutions entering the past offseason, Reed from the White Sox in December and has held on to the closing role all season. All things considered, Reed has mostly underwhelmed thus far with his new team, posting a 4.40 ERA while giving up 11 home runs. On the positive side, he has gone 31-for-37 in save chances while striking out 66 batters in his 57.1 innings, but his high fly ball rates suggest he may not be a viable long-term option tn the role Perez and Marshall are the top closers in waiting, but neither pitcher has made a legitimate push for the role at this point. Look for Reed to hang on to his ninth-inning gig the rest of the way, but don't be surprised if he ends up getting replaced at the back end of the bullpen over the winter.
