Christopher William Reed (born May 20, 1990) is a professional baseball pitcher in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization.

Career

Reed was drafted by the Dodgers in the 1st round of the 2011 MLB Draft out of Stanford University. As a senior at Cleveland High School in Reseda, California in 2008, Reed was a second-team all-West Valley League selection.[1] He was the closer for Stanford in 2011, picking up 9 saves and a 6-2 record, with a 2.54 ERA in 28 games. He limited opposing batters to a .201 average with 48 strikeouts.[2]

He signed late in the summer, agreeing to a $1.6 million signing bonus,[3] and only appeared in 3 games for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes during the 2011 season, pitching only seven innings. After beginning 2012 with the Quakes, he was promoted in June to the AA Chattanooga Lookouts.

Reed was selected to represent the "World Team" in the 2012 All-Star Futures Game[4] and represented the Great Britain national baseball team in the qualifying rounds of the 2013 World Baseball Classic. The Dodgers assigned him to the Mesa Solar Sox in the Arizona Fall League. In 2013, he spent the entire season with the Lookouts and was 4-11 with a 3.86 ERA in 29 appearances (25 starts). In 2014, he was selected to the mid-season Southern League all-star game.[5] He was promoted to the AAA Albuquerque Isotopes on August 7, 2014. He made five starts for the Isotopes, and was 0-3 with a 10.97 ERA.

On November 20, 2014, he was added to the Dodgers 40 man roster in order to protect him from the Rule 5 Draft.[6] He was assigned to the AA Tulsa Drillers to start the season, and also moved into the bullpen after having previously been a starter.[7]
