Boston would send New York right-handers Jamie Callahan, Gerson Bautista and Stephen Nogosek. The Red Sox are competing for the AL East title, and were in position to complete the deal before Monday's 4 p.m. deadline for trades without waivers.
Reed, a 31-year-old right-hander, is 1-2 with a 2.57 ERA and 19 saves in 21 chances. He took over as New York's closer this season because of Jeurys Familia's domestic-violence suspension and shoulder surgery. The Red Sox already have a dominant closer in Craig Kimbrel (see full story).
