21 629 Cincinnati Reds Jon Reed RHP Okla.
Righthander Jon Reed ranked right with Chad James as the best high school prospect in the state until he came down with calcium deposits in his elbow in February. When healthy, Reed had a 90-91 mph fastball that reached 93, a good curveball and nice polish for a high schooler. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder is a good athlete who spent his senior season playing third base and showing some righthanded power potential. A Tennessee recruit, he may need surgery on his elbow.
