The Philadelphia Phillies and reliever Addison Reed are closing in on a three-year deal, sources told ESPN's Buster Olney. What Reed lacks in electric stuff, he makes up for in durability. Over the past five seasons, the right-hander has made 342 appearances, fifth in the majors behind Bryan Shaw, Tony Watson, Cody Allen and Tyler Clippard. Reed also is a consistent strike-thrower, walking only 2.25 batters per nine innings since 2013. The 28-year-old has been both a setup man and a closer.
