48) RHP Remey Reed
How we voted:
Expected in Miami: 2022
Formerly ranked as high as the number 23 Marlins organizational prospect, six-foot-five, 215 lb. right-hander Remey Reed was Miami’s sixth round pick in 2016, 173rd off the board. An Oklahoma State University alum, Reed was 7-3 with a 2.34 ERA in 47 relief appearances for the Cowboys, with 81 strikeouts in 85 1/3 innings of Big 12 baseball.
Reed got his first extensive look at the professional level with the Muckdogs in 2017, for whom he posted a 3-4 record and a 4.44 ERA. In 50 2/3 innings, he racked up 47 strikeouts with a 1.28 WHIP, starting in 11 of his 15 appearances. 2018 would see him miss the majority of the season due to injury. According to Fish on the Farm:
"Rather than using his long limbs to generate plus velo, he is a slow and deliberate worker with an arsenal that matches. Rarely touching 90, he releases late from a high over the top slot without much deception in his delivery. He commands his fastball well and it has a flash of late life to it but each of his secondaries, an 83-86 mph changeup, an 86-88 mph slider and a slow 71-74 12-6 curve are very unpolished."
Last season, Reed showed the Marlins a little more between Batavia and the Clinton Lumberkings. In 14 appearances, all starts, he went 7-3 with a 2.75 ERA and 76 whiffs in 75 1/3 innings and a 1.102 WHIP. He should be a cinch to begin the 2020 campaign with the Jupiter Hammerheads.
