Reed attended Los Osos High School in Rancho Cucamonga, California, and San Diego State University. He played college baseball for the San Diego State Aztecs. In 2009, Reed won the NCBWA Stopper of the Year Award.
Chicago White Sox
The Chicago White Sox selected Reed in the third round of the 2010 Major League Baseball draft. He was named the relief pitcher on Baseball America's 2011 Minor League All Star team.
Reed was called up to the majors for the first time on September 2, 2011. Reed picked up his first career save on May 5, 2012, against the Detroit Tigers pitching one-third of an inning, striking out the only batter he faced, Austin Jackson, during a 3-2 White Sox victory. On May 23, 2012, manager Robin Ventura officially named Reed as the team's closer.
Reed finished the 2012 season with 29 saves despite an ERA of 4.75 in 62 games.
Reed played the 2013 season as the team's closer. Reed earned his 50th career save in a game against the Kansas City Royals on June 22, 2013. On August 22, 2013, Reed saved a sixth consecutive game, becoming the first player in Chicago White Sox history to do so, and the first player in the Major Leagues since Éric Gagné did it for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2003. Reed finished the year going 40-48 in save opportunities, going 5-4 with a 3.79 ERA, striking out 72 in 71.1 innings over 68 appearances.
On December 16, 2013, the White Sox traded Reed to the Arizona Diamondbacks for infielder Matt Davidson. Reed was named the new Diamondbacks closer for the 2014 season. He was removed from the closer role in May 2015, and optioned to the Reno Aces in June after allowing 16 runs in 24 innings. The Diamondbacks recalled Reed in July.
Reed finished the 2014 season with a record of 1-7, a 4.25 ERA, 32 saves with a 1.21 WHIP in 59 1⁄3 innings pitched in 62 games.
New York Mets
On August 30, 2015, the Diamondbacks traded Reed to the New York Mets for Matt Koch and Miller Diaz. Reed was the losing pitcher in the deciding Game 5 of the 2015 World Series. Reed finished the 2015 season with a record of 3-3, 3.38 ERA, 4 saves with 51 K's and a WHIP of 1.38 in 56 innings pitched in 55 games with both the Diamondbacks and the Mets. Reed made the 2016 Opening Day Roster as the setup man for Jeurys Familia. The 2016 season was one of Reed's best, as he posted career numbers as well as nabbing the Mets franchise record for the most holds in a season. In 2017, with Familia injured, Reed served as the Mets' closer.
Boston Red Sox
On July 31, 2017, the Mets traded Reed to the Boston Red Sox for three minor league pitchers, Jamie Callahan, Stephen Nogosek, and Gerson Bautista.
