Reed should be a free agent in every non-keeper league. He is a prototypical number two hitter. Number two hitters typically are not very good at fantasy baseball. To be good they need to maintain a high average, score a lot of runs, and, usually, play an infield position. Reed does none of these things. If he can start hitting .320 and get on base a lot he could be useful as a fantasy player, but not great because he plays the outfield. Reed is a disappointment this season, yes - but not much of one. Expectations for him were far too high in the first place.
