CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – Major League Baseball has announced that Lookouts pitcher Chris Reed has been selected to the United States roster in the 14th annual SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City on July 8th.
Reed, who was tabbed as the fifth best prospect in the Dodgers organization by Baseball America this preseason, has started three games for the Lookouts since his promotion on June 4th. He has not factored into a decision for the Lookouts and has thrown a total of nine innings, yielding two runs on four hits and five walks, while striking out nine. Prior to his promotion, he pitched in seven games (six starts) for Rancho Cucamonga (High-A), where he posted a 1-4 record with a 3.09 ERA in 35 total innings. He was also listed superlatively by Baseball America for having the best slider amongst prospects in the Dodgers organization.
The 22-year-old lefty was drafted in the first round (16th overall) of the 2011 First-Year Player Draft out of Stanford University, where he posted a 0.96 ERA and nine saves in 12 relief appearances.
Reed graduated Cleveland (CA) High School with a 4.2 GPA in 2008 and was a recipient of the U.S. Army National Scholar Athlete Award.
Last season, OF Alfredo Silverio, who spent the entire 2011 season with the Lookouts, was the Dodgers representative in the SiriusXM Futures All-Star Game.
