WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES
The Devil Rays drafted Reid as a draft-eligible sophomore. He throws an 88-92 mph fastball, along with a changeup and slider. The slider was his out pitch at the time he was drafted, but now the change is the better pitch. He had very good K rates in the low minors, but not so much since he reached AA. The Pirates signed him as a minor league free agent in November 2012.
A-: 1-9-0, 6.24 ERA, 1.58 WHIP, 53.1 IP, 4.0 BB/9, 7.3 K/9
Reid struggled as a starter in his short season debut.
A: 6-5-10, 2.97 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, 72.2 IP, 3.0 BB/9, 11.5 K/9
The Rays moved Reid to the bullpen in low A and he was much more effective.
A+: 3-0-8, 0.29 ERA, 0.55 WHIP, 31.0 IP, 0.9 BB/9, 13.1 K/9
