RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Chris Reed.
Even when Reed was initially drafted with the 16th overall pick in the 2011 draft, the industry consensus pitted him as a future reliever given his lack of command/control. Despite putting up a 3.22 ERA in 137 innings at Double-A Chattanooga, and sporting three average-or-better pitches, the smart money is still on Reed ending up in a big league bullpen. His 9.5% walk rate at Double-A and 9.7% walk rate in 22.1 innings at Triple-A Oklahoma City were comfortably the best rates of his career, but without overpowering stuff, the bullpen could be a better fit. As a lefty who can induce weak contact, Reed will be an asset at some point for the Dodgers. However, his fantasy value hinges on him remaining a starter, an outcome that is yet to be determined.
Reed continued to fail to live up to his first-round draft status in 2013, going 4-11 with a 3.86 ERA and 1.39 WHIP for Double-A Chattanooga. Again walks were a problem given his 4.1 BB/9, and his K/9 was just so-so at 7.0. Look for Reed to return to Double-A to open 2014, and it could be a year in which he's converted to a bullpen role. Reed's prospect start has dimmed a bit, and this is a crucial year for the southpaw.
Reed was the team's top pick in the 2011 draft, and his first full season featured a lot of ups and downs. The Dodgers took it easy with his left arm, allowing him to average right around four innings per start. He finished with a 3.97 ERA, 8.6 K/9, and 4.4 BB/9. He was a reliever in college, and that could ultimately be his role if he can't improve his control and get deeper into games. Reed will return to Double-A to open 2013 and could contribute to the big club late in the year if things go well.
