Reed was one of three left-handed pitchers acquired from the Royals in the Johnny Cueto trade, along with Brandon Finnegan and John Lamb. Reed was originally a second round pick by the Royals in 2013 and has risen up the ranks quickly. At the time of the trade in 2015, Reed had already worked his way up to Double-A and was continued at the level with the Reds. After working just 78.1 innings at Double-A, Reed was aggressively promoted to Triple-A to start the 2016 season following a strong Spring, where he was dominant through mid-May. He then earned a June call up and struggled with home runs and solid contact early. Reed works with a fastball in the mid-90s, along with a crisp slider in the mid-80s and a change that is average.
