AJ Reed will make his MLB debut tonight at 7:15 ET against the Royals. Reed is slated to bat sixth for the Astros and play DH. The game is not nationally televised, but MLB.TV subscribers can watch online or listen for free on the MLB app or website.
Kansas City’s starter Chris Young has struggled this season, which is great for Reed. Young has struggled to keep the ball in the park, and Reed had 11 home runs for Triple-A Fresno. This may be a short MLB tryout for Reed this weekend. The Astros are still using Marwin Gonzalez at first while Reed continues to develop. If Reed hits well in the next few games, he will most likely take over at first for the long term.
