Reed, 26, is having a rough year posting a 4.20 ERA, 3.12 FIP in 40 2/3 innings pitched while striking out 34 and walking 14. He spent time in Triple-A Reno posting a 1.74 ERA, 4.18 FIP in 10 innings, but was recently called back up. Reed also struggled in 2014 posting a 4.25 ERA, 4.03 FIP in 59 1/3 innings pitched.
The Mets are 71-58, six games up on the Nationals in the National League East, but felt they needed to upgrade their bullpen after Jenrry Mejia was suspended for 162 games in July.
