As San Diego State's closer last year, Reed led the nation with 20 saves. He often entered games after a fellow named Strasburg had finished his work for the day. Hitters who were overjoyed to see Strasburg leave--and who thought they would have a party when Reed came in--were severely disappointed. In 2010, Reed has made a seamless transition as the Aztecs' Friday starter, going 8-1, 2.07 with 77 strikeouts and just 10 walks in 65 innings. Opponents were hitting .197 off the 6-foot-3, 215-pound Reed, who delivers a 91-92 mph fastball that can peak at 93-94. Reed does an excellent job of moving the pitch around the strike zone--in, out, up, down. He adds an effective two-plane curveball, which he can use to saw off either edge of the plate. One scout said of Reed, "He doesn't have the best stuff in the world, but he's having a good year and knows how to get guys out." As a pro, Reed will get a chance to start, but his bullpen experience will serve him well if he fails in that role.
