Reed pitched a scoreless ninth inning with two strikeouts to record his 11th save of the season during Sunday's win over Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Reed has converted each of his past five save opportunities without allowing a run and striking out nine batters over 7.2 innings. He owns a 2.70 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 10.0 K/9 for the campaign and is quickly establishing himself as a high-end relief option in all settings.

Reed pitched 1.2 scoreless innings with two strikeouts to record his 10th save of the season during Saturday's win over Atlanta in the first game of their doubleheader.

EDGE Analysis

Reed entered in the bottom of the eighth inning with New York ahead 2-1, and Yoenis Cespedes hit a grand slam in the top of the ninth frame to make it a 6-1 lead. It was a cakewalk save after the insurance home run. Now sporting a 2.78 ERA and 1.08 WHIP with 35 strikeouts through 32.1 innings, Reed has positioned himself among the high-end closers going forward. It's also worth noting that he's walked just four batters all season.

Reed polished off the Rangers on nine pitches Wednesday, striking out one en route to his ninth save.

EDGE Analysis

It was a low-stress ninth for the Mets' closer, who continues to post strong ratios and convert saves whenever he gets the chance. The key has been great control: After walking only 13 batters in 80 appearances last year, Reed has issued just four bases on balls over his first 30 games this season.

Reed pitched two innings, allowing two hits and a walk to earn his eighth save in Saturday's 4-2 win over Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Reed entered in the eighth inning to protect a two-run lead on Saturday and got his eighth save of 2017. He was able to work around a one-out double in the eighth and a leadoff single in the ninth to get his first two-inning save of the season. Reed is now 8-for-10 in save chances, and he has a firm grasp on the closer role for the Mets.

Reed allowed two hits while striking out two to earn his seventh save of the year in Monday's 4-2 win over Milwaukee.

EDGE Analysis

It was nice to see Reed bounce back after blowing his second save of the year Saturday in Pittsburgh. He allowed back-to-back singles to start the ninth before retiring the next three batters. Reed is 7-for-9 in save chances and sports a healthy 10.1 K/9 and 3.38 ERA. He should be a high-end closing option for fantasy owners with a firm grasp on the ninth-inning duties.

Reed pitched a scoreless ninth inning despite allowing a hit and two walks to collect his sixth save of the season during Saturday's win over the Angels. He also recorded a strikeout.

EDGE Analysis

While Reed has suffered through a few poor outings, he's now converted six of his seven save opportunities and sports a 3.18 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 10.3 K/9. With a firm hold on the closer gig, he has the potential to provide high-end production going forward.

Reed pitched a clean ninth inning in a 3-0 win over the Angels Friday.

EDGE Analysis

It was the fifth save of the season for Reed, who provided a nice bounce-back effort after blowing a save on Sunday. He was able to get two flyouts and a popout to seal the deal for the Mets, and still has yet to walk a batter on the campaign. Reed should continue to get opportunities to close games for New York while Jeurys Familia (shoulder) remains on the 60-day disabled list.

Reed gave up a three-run home run to Manny Pina in the eighth inning Sunday to cap a five-run Brewers rally and blow his first save of the season.

EDGE Analysis

Only two of the runs were charged to Reed, but it was still a discouraging performance by the Mets new closer in the wake of Jeurys Familia's shoulder surgery considering the team was up 7-1 in the fifth inning and took a 9-6 lead into the eighth before losing 11-9. Reed now has a 3.86 ERA on the season thanks to a dreadful 2.4 HR/9, but his 0.96 WHIP and 23:0 K:BB through 18.2 innings suggest better days should be ahead once his luck on fly balls normalizes.

Reed should resume his role as closer for as long as Jeurys Familia (shoulder) is sidelined.

EDGE Analysis

Familia is flying to St. Louis to get tests done on an arterial clot in his right (throwing) shoulder, and he may require surgery. Reed, who went a perfect 4-for-4 in the saves role earlier in the year when Familia was suspended, should be an immediate pickup in all fantasy leagues. He has yet to walk a better this year and boasts a 3.00 ERA with 22 strikeouts in 18 innings.

General manager Sandy Alderson did not give closer Jeurys Familia a vote of confidence when asked about the bullpen on Saturday, Newsday's David Lennon reports. "As of right now do we have a closer? You tell me," Alderson said.

EDGE Analysis

Familia has allowed just one run in four innings since returning from his suspension, but he has also allowed 10 baserunners over that span (four hits, six walks), prompting Alderson's displeased comment regarding the state of the ninth inning. Reed was already worth owning in deeper mixed leagues for his ratios, strikeouts and the fact that he would be next in line if Familia got hurt, but now it seems like there is a legitimate chance that Reed could assume the role based on merit if Familia's performance does not improve.
