Prized Prospect Cody Reed Gets Makes Debut For Reds Against Houston

The Reds are about to "start the clock" on Cody Reed, who will make his Major League debut tonight.

The Reds cleared the roster spot by asking waivers on Dayan Diaz, who had to clear waivers and was sent outright to Louisville.

The 6'5" left-hander is under the Reds control four three years.

Reed is the third pitcher in the trade with Kansas City for Johnny Cueto.  Reed along with John Lamb and Brandon Finnegan were obtained by the Reds in that trade on July 26 of last year.  All three are now in the Reds' starting rotation.

Reed made 11 starts for Louisville, earning a 6-3 record with a 3.62 ERA.  He walked 17 in 64 2/4 innings while sriking out 63.

The 23-year old was the second round pick by Kansas City in the 2013 draft.
