Dodgers Sign First-Rounder Reed

Posted Aug. 12, 2011 1:54 pm by Jim Callis
The Dodgers have signed 16th overall pick Chris Reed for $1.589 million–$77,000 above MLB’s recommendation for his draft slot. He becomes the 10th of 33 first-rounders in this year’s draft to sign.

A Stanford lefthander, Reed has a low-90s fastball that tops out at 96 mph and will flash a hard slider and plus changeup. Though the Cardinal used him almost exclusively as a reliever, he may get a chance to start in pro ball.
