John Sickels on Addison Reed

Sickels @ MLBall:

The Chicago White Sox promoted right-handed pitching prospect Addison Reed from Low-A Kannapolis to High-A Winston-Salem, where he threw two shutout innings of relief on April 23rd. He now has 10 innings pitched combined at the two levels, giving up four hits, one run, one walk, with 14 strikeouts. Drafted in the third round out of San Diego State last  year, Reed closed in 2009 but started last year in college. The Sox seem to think he’ll advanced more quickly as a reliever, due to outstanding command of his low-90s fastball, slider, and curve. His arsenal is diverse enough to start, but he throws harder when used in the bullpen. Personally, I’d use him as a starter until he proves he can’t handle it, but he could reach the majors within a year as a reliever.
