JAMIE H. VAUGHT: Former UK Baseball Star A.J. Reed Now Playing in Astros' Farm System
By Jamie H. Vaught
It wasn’t just too long ago when A.J. Reed was the face of college baseball.
A 6-4, 240-pounder from Terre Haute, Ind., Reed made the national headlines in 2014, powering the Kentucky Wildcats with his hitting and pitching prowess in becoming the consensus national player of the year. And now Reed has moved on to professional ranks from the SEC wars after being drafted by the Houston Astros last June as the No. 42 overall pick in the MLB Draft.
