Reed signs with Reds
By Rod Walker
Justin Reed, a fourth round pick by the Cincinnati Reds in Tuesday's Major League Baseball amateur draft, signed a deal with the team this morning.
Reed, who played at Hillcrest as a senior after transferring from Callaway, wouldn't give specifics of the deal.
"I am definitely happy with it though," said Reed, the 114th overall pick. "I will say that it is more than $300,000."
Justin Maxwell, the 114th overall pick in last year's draft, received a signing bonus of $386,000.
Reed leaves Saturday for Sarasota, Fla, to join the Sarasota Reds, Cincinnati's Class A affiliate.
