BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Half of the Marlins’ end (along with Omar Poveda) of the Jorge Cantu swap with the Rangers in 2010, Reed underwent Tommy John surgery that September, and then was added to the 40-man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 Draft. The big-bodied righty solved Double-A early in 2012, but hit a roadblock when promoted to New Orleans for the second half. He turned 27 in December, so he’ll head to Jupiter in February with his prospect clock ticking. A below-average athlete, Reed gets by with a 91-95 mph fastball and a middling slider. Reed could nab an Opening Day bullpen gig or put himself in line for a midseason promotion by impressing the coaching staff this spring.
2012 Nearly a year after injuring his elbow in his first outing as a Marlin, Evan Reed made his return in the second half with seven consecutive scoreless outings for High-A Jupiter.
2011 The other arm received from the Rangers for Cantu, Reed had been a reliever at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, the program that has cranked out Garrett Olson, Bud Norris, and Brent Morel. The Rangers nabbed Reed in the third round of '07, and seeing a big guy who could throw mid-90s heat, gave him a spin as a starter in '08. That was a disaster, but moving him back to the bullpen produced predictably happy results in the lower minors. Less happily, Reed hurt his elbow in his Marlins debut, never to appear again, and the absence of a quality off-speed pitch limits his upside in anything more than a supporting relief role.
