Tigers Promote Evan Reed From Triple-A Toledo

CHICAGO (AP) — The Detroit Tigers have promoted right-hander Evan Reed from Triple-A Toledo after a judge dismissed rape charges against the pitcher last week.

The Tigers brought Reed back to the majors before they opened a series at the Chicago White Sox on Friday night. Right-hander Jose Ortego was designated for assignment to create a spot on the 40-man roster.

Reed, 28, was facing third-degree criminal sexual conduct charges before a judge said Aug. 21 that the testimony of the woman who accused him wasn’t credible and prosecutors failed to show that force or coercion took place.

Reed is 0-1 with a 4.88 ERA in 27 games with the Tigers this season.

Reed replaces left-hander Kyle Lobstein, who was sent to Toledo after Thursday’s 3-2 victory over the Yankees.
