Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports that first base prospect A.J. Reed is being called up to the Houston Astros. Many believed that Reed would make the opening day roster, but instead fellow rookie first baseman Tyler White got the nod. However, with White now back in Triple-A, it only made sense that Reed’s time was coming.  

In Triple-A, Reed slashed .266/.345/.509 with 11 homers and 39 RBI’s in 59 games. Expect the highly regarded prospect to immediately take over first base duties, while Marwin Gonzalez slides back into a utility role. Anyways, it should be interesting to see what Reed can bring to a recently red hot Houston Astros.
