Reds No. 9 prospect Cody Reed set career highs Wednesday night with eight innings and 12 strikeouts in his second start for Double-A Pensacola.

The 6-foot-5 southpaw polished off his scoreless appearance in quick fashion, allowing just four hits and two walks while picking up a dozen Ks. The latter number was a season high for any Pensacola pitcher this season and Reed is 2-0 with one earned run allowed in 15 innings since joining Cincinnati's farm system.

That transaction happened on July 26, when the Reds sent ace Johnny Cueto to the Royals in exchange for Reed, Brandon Finnegan and John Lamb.

A second-round Draft pick by Kansas City in 2013, Reed went 10-17 in 40 starts across four levels for the Royals. He's recorded 102 strikeouts against 30 walks this season.
