The thought was that Reed would be one of the most sought after relievers in the draft after being Named the 2009 National Stopper of the Year by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA). Reed led the nation in saves, but San Diego State stretched him out over the winter to make him the team's Friday starter.
Reed, the 95th overall pick, adjusted well. He developed three pitches to become a starter, going 8-2 in 11 appearances.
Reed broke his pinky, which slowed him down for a few weeks, but presuming he can pick up where he left off, the 6'4, 215lb 22-year-old junior can be a solid arm.
