St. Louis Cardinals pitching prospect Jimmy Reed is the FSL’s Pitcher of the Week for May 18-24.

Left-hander Jimmy Reed has been named the Florida State League’s Pitcher of the Week for the period of May 18-24. The 24-year-old Gaithersburg, MD resident tossed a complete game on Friday, May 22 against the Clearwater Threshers, his second nine-inning complete game of the season and third in his career.
