PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks have acquired closer Addison Reed from the Chicago White Sox in exchange for third base prospect Matt Davidson.
Reed, who turns 25 later this month, ranked fifth in the American League and seventh overall in the majors with 40 saves last season. In 68 appearances, he went 5-4 with a 3.79 ERA and had eight blown saves. He walked 23 and struck out 72. Opponents batted .215 against the right-hander.
The 22-year-old Davidson made his major league debut last season, appearing in 31 games with Arizona. He hit .237 with three homers. In 115 games with Triple-A Reno last year, Davidson hit .280 with 32 doubles, 17 homers and 74 RBIs.
Arizona selected Davidson in the first round of the 2009 draft, the 35th selection overall.
