Reed (knee) is throwing but is still a couple weeks away from returning to the mound, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Reed has been sidelined with the left knee sprain since late May when he joined the Reds for a doubleheader. The 26-year-old is currently on the minor-league injured list and is building up his strength in the throwing program.
Reed will be shut down from throwing for the next 10-to-14 days after suffering a Grade 2 left knee sprain during Monday's game against Pittsburgh. Reed will be placed on the minor-league injured list, as he was up with the major-league squad as the 26th man when he suffered the injury. He'll remain out at least until mid-June and likely longer while on the mend.
Reed was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Monday as the 26th man for the Reds' doubleheader against the Pirates. Reed has bounced between Triple-A Louisville and the majors this season, pitching exclusively out of the bullpen at both levels. He's been used lightly at the major-league level, though he has a 2.08 ERA and 0.92 WHIP with seven strikeouts across 4.1 innings of work.
Reed was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Saturday. Reed was very solid during this brief stint in the big-league bullpen, striking out seven while giving up one run in 4.1 innings over two appearances. He should be back up with the Reds sooner than later when they have need of a fresh arm.
Reed was called up from Triple-A Louisville on Friday. Reed joins the Reds for the second time this season, with his first stint lasting only one day despite him pitching 2.1 innings of scoreless relief. The 26-year-old has pitched well at Triple-A with a 3.06 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 23:7 K:BB across 17.2 innings.
