Reed Makes Rehab Appearance For Rays FCL Team In Fort Myers
Left-hander Cody Reed was thought to be done for the year after undergoing thoracic outlet surgery in June, but the reliever is already throwing again in game situations.
Reed pitched a scoreless inning in the Rays Florida Complex League game Thursday in Fort Myers, allowing one walk and striking out three FCL Twins players.
The 28-year-old southpaw had not pitche din a game since May 28, when he walked a pair and struck out a pair of Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards, and was placed back on the injured list with the finger issue that plagued him all the way back to 2020.
