Royals (No. 46) | Cody Reed, LHP, NW Mississippi CC: Reed offers the upside of a prep arm with projection in a 6-foot-5, 220-pound frame, and some of the polish offered by a college arm. He's into the mid-90s with his fastball, which is rare from a left-hander, and his slider made progress in 2013. If he can develop the changeup, he can start, and at that point would look like a steal in the second round.
