4/12/18 - Southern California commit. 6-foot-4, 195-pound frame. Long, lean, wiry strength whose body can handle the addition of mass on his square shouldered frame. Reed showed his usual three-pitch mix of fastball, curveball, and changeup in only his sixth start of the season. His fastball was 88-91 mph early on before settling in at 86-89 mph later in the outing. The pitch shows some arm side run and at times some cut action. His command of the pitch was inconsistent - he hit two batters with FB - often flying open at release. Reed's curveball, a tight, sharp, late breaking pitch, was 76-78 mph early on before settling in at 71-73 mph later in his outing. Early on, Reed's curveball gave the look of a power curveball with 12-6 shape and good depth before levelling out and showing more sweeping action. Reed's changeup shows plus pitch potential at times with boring and tilting movement into righties as it enters the zone. Reed maintained his velocity on this pitch which was 81-83 mph throughout his start. It's important to note that this was game 2 of a double header and Reed started in left field in game 1 and hit in both games.
8/8/17 - Area Code Games. Struck out four and walked one in two innings pitched. Started out 92-93. Settled in at 89-91. 86-87 changeup. 75-76 curveball.
4/20/17 - Boras Classic South. Had a very nice day both on the mound, and at the plate. The 6-foot-3, 180-pounder has an athletic frame and strong right arm. He ran his fastball up to 90 mph, and settled into the 87-88 range while working both sides of the plate with a smooth, medium-sized arm stroke. He also featured a developing slider at 71-72, and a changeup that showed big arm side run, at times as he manipulated it. He throws from a near over the top slot, and remains linear down the mound. At the plate, the left-handed hitter is a large presence in the box with a spread out stance. He shows strength in his swing and was 2-for-3 on the day. Overall, Reed shows off a polished delivery, and should continue to see a rise in velocity as he gets older and adds strength.
