From his scouting report:
Addison Reed was a closer as a sophomore at San Diego State and a starter this season. After he signs, don’t be surprised to see him fast-tracked as bullpen help. If Drew Storen can go from Stanford to the big leagues in under a year, so can Reed. …
STRENGTHS: Big physical workhorse who creates deception and repeats delivery. Strike thrower with all pitches. Competes and pounds the bottom of the strike zone. Uses both sides of the plate. FB 90-93 and has been 96 as a closer. Probable closer in pro ball. Slider 81-82, has tilt and consistency. Change-up at 82 effective. Above-average command.
