NCAA Baseball Tournament: Dodgers First-Round Pick Chris Reed Could Pitch This Weekend For Stanford In Super Regional

With their first-round pick in the 2011 MLB Draft, the Dodgers on Monday drafted Stanford left-handed pitcher Chris Reed. Though the 16th overall pick has been a relief pitcher at Stanford, the Dodgers plan to convert him to a starting pitcher. Stanford is still alive in the NCAA Baseball Tournament, playing at North Carolina in the Super Regionals, so there is still a chance for Dodger fans to get a glimpse of the future.

Stanford plays at North Carolina in a best-of-three series beginning Friday at noon PDT. The game will be televised by ESPN2, and can be seen online via ESPN3. Game 2 is scheduled for Saturday at noon on ESPN and, if necessary, Game 3 will by Sunday at 1 p.m. on ESPN. Reed was 6-2 with a 2.54 ERA in 28 games. He had 15 walks and 48 strikeouts in 49 2/3 innings. Fun fact: Reed also had nine wild pitches, second most on the Cardinal staff.
