The young 24 year old Reed gets the nod in Monday nights game. He’ll look to aid this struggling Cincinnati pitching staff who currently owns a terrible 6.20 ERA.
In his short time in the Majors it hasn’t been pretty for Reed as he has posted a high 6.75 ERA and 6.23 FIP. He has swing-and-miss stuff (8.27 K/9), but has struggled with the free passes posting a 5.23 BB/9.
Even his 2.07 HR/9 and .328 BABIP is ugly to look at, so we will find out how much he has improved when he takes the mound.
Cincinnati’s lineup hasn’t been very productive slashing .255/.335/.379 while only hitting 16 extra-base hits and 23 RBI in their first seven games of the season.
Lively put in a decent start against against the New York Mets going 5.2 innings giving up two earned off of six hits while striking out five and walking one. He took the loss, but his team didn’t do him any favors not scoring a single run in the outing.
Solid numbers for this young pitcher who posted an 2.89 FIP. Don’t expect him to blow teams away in strikes as he posted 5.44 K/9 a year ago, but also don’t expect him to give up many walks posting 2.39 BB/9 last season
If he can keep hitting his spots and keep his BABIP down around .280, then there is no reason why he cant improve on his 4.26 ERA and 4.97 FIP from a year ago.
Other than Philadelphia’s 20 run onslaught against Miami, their lineup hasn’t been doing much only slashing .237/.335/.403 to go along with 22 extra-base hits and 38 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Reds ML
I expect both these pitchers to find success against these less-than-stellar lineups. This game seems like a toss-up so I’ll bank on this being a low-scoring matchup.
