Former Cal Poly pitcher Evan Reed made his Major League debut on Thursday night for the Detroit Tigers against the Texas Rangers. He became the fifteenth former Mustang to play in the Major Leagues.
The 27 year old right-hander threw 2 2/3 innings in a 10-4 loss to the Rangers. He allowed a solo home run to Nelson Cruz in the seventh inning. He struck out Elvis Andrus for his first big league strikeout. Reed scattered two hits in the game.
The Tigers claimed Reed off waivers from the Miami Marlins last month. He was 0-1 with a 3.00 ERA in 21 innings of work with Triple A Toledo.
Reed was drafted out of Cal Poly in the third round by the Texas Rangers in the 2007 MLB Draft. He is the fifth former Mustang currently in the Majors. He joins the Twins' Kevin Correia and Casey Fien, Bud Norris with Houston and Logan Schafer with the Brewers.
