Addison Reed was the accusation from the New York Mets, for three right handed prospects.

The deal cost three minor league relievers: Jamie Callahan, Stephen Nogosek and Gerson Bautista.

In total, Reed was linked to almost a third of the league.

But the Mets' disappointing season only cemented Reed's spot on the trading block, especially since he's due to be a free agent at season's end. The return price has volume, but the quality remains to be seen.

After using prospects (mostly pitchers) to swing major deals in each of the last two trade deadlines to acquire Yoenis Cespedes and Jay Bruce, the Mets' trade of Reed furthered an effort to restock the farm system with arms. They also placed faith in the current roster, which features several hitters who have under-performed to date - Xander Bogaerts has just six home runs after hitting 21 past year, while Mookie Betts is hitting an unsavory.269 after his 2016 MVP runner-up campaign.

Boston also insisted on paying the rest of Reed's salary. With him (Reed) on the team it will make the Red Sox much more risky of a team.

What the Red Sox gave up seems reasonable. Dombrowski declined to pursue a power bat or add more depth at third base, where the Sox appear content with rookie Rafael Devers and new utility man Eduardo Nunez.

With the Mets, Reed has been a great reliever in 2017.

Reed is 1-2 with 19 saves and a 2.57 ERA this year. The bad news is that he also averages 3.5 walks-per-nine. In 48 games, Reed has a 2.57 ERA with 19 saves in 21 chances.

For the Mets, they continue to try to stockpile quality pitching depth in the minor leagues. Callahan is the closest to the majors, a right-hander that was promoted to Pawtucket earlier this season. Nogosek was taken in the 6th round of the Amateur Draft in 2016 while Bautista was signed as an global free agent in 2013. To think they got him for just three pitching prospects.

Nogosek headlines the deal with Callahan ranked 23rd and Bautista 28th among Red Sox prospects per MLB.com.
