Reed, who is hitting .360 with four homers and 10 RBI this spring, has made "things interesting," according to Houston manager A.J. Hinch, but the team remains committed to Yulieski Gurriel at first base, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

2017

2016

No minor league hitter improved their stock more than Reed last season. He was the best hitter in the minors, slashing .340/.432/.612 with 34 home runs in 523 at-bats between High-A and Double-A. Those are awfully impressive numbers for a player who was drafted 42nd overall in the 2014 draft and started the year off every major prospect list. Reed posted walk rates above 11 percent and K-rates below 21 percent at both levels last year, and at 6-foot-4, 240, the lefty hitting first baseman has the look of a prototypical MLB cleanup hitter. The Astros non-tendered Chris Carter this offseason, clearing the way for Reed to be the first baseman sometime in the first half, assuming he holds his own for a month or two against Triple-A pitching. There is potential for a .300 hitter with 30-plus home runs annually, and he should reach the majors in time to be worthy of a selection in most single-season formats.
