2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: The California native was the 40th round draft pick of the White Sox. Instead of signing, he went to the University of Oregon. As a freshman, Reed made 17 starts and went 8-4 with a 2.92 ERA. He made 17 starts again as a sophomore and was 6-6 with a 3.50 ERA. His junior season, he was moved to the bullpen. He was 4-1 with 13 saves and a 1.95 ERA. He was the Twins 5th round pick in 2014 and had an incredible pro debut. Between Elizabethton (6 IP) and Cedar Rapids (25 IP), he posted a 0.29 ERA, a 0.45 WHIP, 0.9 BB/9 and 11.3 K/9. He ended the season with a 0.71 ERA in 12.1 innings in the AFL. Reed is 6-2 and 195 pounds. He has a fastball between 93 and 95 mph though he has hit 97 and even 98 at times. He gets a lot of movement on it. His slider can be devastating as well. Controlling those pitches could make him a tough 7th or 8th inning guy… soon.
