2018 Fantasy Outlook
2017 was a bad year for the fruits of the Johnny Cueto trade. Brandon Finnegan hurt his shoulder and only made four appearances all season. John Lamb had already left the Reds' organization, but he was hurt and then suspended 50 games for his second positive test for a drug of abuse. And finally Reed struggled through a difficult season, getting strafed in his one big-league start by the Cubs, after which he was moved to the bullpen and then to Triple-A Louisville. Reed's major problem is control -- he lacks command of the strike zone, and then falls apart once runners get on base. He had an 18.2 walk percentage with the bases empty last year, which spiked to over 30 percent once at least one runner was on. He had good results with the bases empty -- .139/.295/.194 against 44 batters -- and melted down with runners on, allowing batters to hit .250/.486/.708. There's some hope from the Reds that he'll fare better as a reliever. Read Past Outlooks

Chased early in loss
PCincinnati Reds
September 26, 2018
Reed (1-3) took the loss Wednesday against the Royals, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks across 3.2 innings. He struck out two.
ANALYSIS
Reed hadn't allowed a run over his last 11 innings (two starts) heading into Wednesday's outing, but he struggled in this one, allowing one run in three of the four frames in which he appeared. The 25-year-old southpaw will finish the season with a 3.98 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 42:15 K:BB across 43 innings (seven starts, 10 relief appearances). Reed posted a 4.13 ERA with 28 strikeouts over his final six starts (28.1 innings) of the season and will likely battle for a rotation spot in spring training.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Reed entered 2016 as one of Cincinnati's top pitching prospects before making his major league debut in June. The 23-year-old disappointed in 10 starts during his rookie season, posting a 7.36 ERA and 6.06 FIP over 47.2 innings of work, as his vaunted slider was blasted by major league hitters. Although Reed's K/9 and BB/9 rates stayed fairly similar to his 2016 numbers with Triple-A Louisville, he gave up home runs on a much more frequent basis in Cincinnati. His 2.27 HR/9 that was more than triple his mark at Triple-A (0.74). Additionally, his WHIP saw a concerning spike at the major league level. Reed still has the potential to develop into a serviceable mid-rotation starter, but 2016 took off some of the shine. He will compete for a rotation spot in spring training.
Brandon Finnegan and John Lamb garnered more attention as part of the haul in the Johnny Cueto deal, but Reed has already made waves in the Reds' system since the trade. He was a sandwich-round pick in the 2013 draft and initially struggled as a professional, but made big leaps in 2015. After the deal, he went directly to Double-A Pensacola, where in eight starts he struck out 60 batters in 49.2 innings, posting a 2.12 ERA while allowing just one homer. He might start up again in Double-A, but he's among a slew of pitchers coming quickly for the Reds.
