Prospect of the Day:  OF Michael Reed (Class-A Wisconsin)

The 20-year-old outfielder was a popular breakout candidate in the Brewers’ system a year ago. The Brewers went overslot to sign him out of high school, and scouts such as ESPN’s Keith Law mentioned on draft day that he really liked Reed’s potential. Unfortunately, Reed struggled to make consistent contact with the Helena Brewers in the Pioneer League last year, striking out 58 times in only 179 at-bats. He ended the year with a .246/.337/.302 slash line. It was lack of power that stuck out the most.

Into this year, Reed had fallen off many prospect radars. Baseball America didn’t include Reed in their Top 30 Prospect list, for example. He’s gotten off to a good start with the Timber Rattlers, however, including a 3-for-3 night with two walks and a pair of stolen bases on Monday. He’s still not hitting home runs, but his overall power numbers are much more respectable thus far in 2013 than they were last year. The strikeout rate is still a problem, though.

Michael Reed is an intriguing outfield prospect, who will undoubtedly get overshadowed in Appleton because he’s playing with Victor Roache, Mitch Haniger and Tyrone Taylor. Don’t forget about the Cedar Park, Texas native, though. He has the potential to be a major-league center fielder — of course, he remains eons away from scratching the surface of that ceiling, so don’t start penciling him into your future Brewers’ lineups quite yet.

    Watched the T-rats game last night and they noted Lopez hit 96 on the gun multiple times. Don’t know how accurate the gun is, but they guy’s an athlete and if he figures out some control, he looks very interesting. He looks like a jock trying to playing baseball. haha
