 Biographical Information
Chris Reed was a first-round pick in 2011.
Reed allowed three runs in 2 1/3 IP as a college freshman at Stanford University in 2009. The next year, he was 2-0 with a 6.20 ERA and 15 walks in 20 2/3 IP. As a junior, he made big strides, going 6-2 with 9 saves, a 2.56 ERA and .211 opponent average. He cut his walk rate (17 in 52 2/3 IP) while fanning 52. He was third in the Pac-10 Conference in saves. His fastball peaked at 96 mph in college. The Los Angeles Dodgers took Reed with the 16th pick of the 2011 amateur draft.
Even though Reed was represented by agent Scott Boras, known for dragging negotiations to the very limit, he signed with the Dodgers on August 11th, a few days ahead of the August 15th deadline at a time when a majority of the year's first rounders were still unsigned.
Reed made his pro debut in 2011 with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, going 0-1 with a 7.71 ERA in 3 starts. Back with the Quakes to begin 2012, he was 1-4 with a more impressive 3.09 ERA in 7 outings before being promoted to the AA Chattanooga Lookouts.
