A lefthander acquired in the trade of KC's trade for Johnny Cueto, Cody Reed is a fast-rising lefthander in a system that could use some starting pitching. The hard-thrower broke out in 2015, posting a shiny 2.41 ERA with 144 strikeouts in 146 innings split between high- and double-A ball. His mid-90's heater would play in MLB right now, as would the erratic but electric slider, but it's that developing change that is propelling him up prospect lists. If it's on, he'll be in Cincinnati this season.

Reds prospect Cody Reed will make his MLB debut Saturday in Houston. While he hasn't shone quite as brightly thus far in 2016 as he did the season before, he's still the top Reds pitcher available, and the team could certainly use a boost. If he can navigate a tough matchup with the Astros, he'll probably stick in the rotation for good.
