The Tigers will call up right-hander Evan Reed from Triple-A Toledo prior to Friday's game.

The Tigers optioned Kyle Lobstein back to Triple-A after Thursday's game. Reed posted a 4.91 ERA in 25 2/3 innings with the Tigers earlier this season.

The sexual assault charges against Evan Reed have been dismissed.

Reed had been charged with two counts of third-degree sexual assault as a result of an incident that occurred on March 30 in a Detroit hotel room. Allegedly, the pitcher met a 45-year-old woman at a bar, took her back to his room, and assaulted her. Prosecutors, however, failed to convince the judge there was probable cause that a crime was committed -- mostly because of a lack of evidence. Reed could have faced up to 15 years behind bars if the case had gone to trial.

Evan Reed has been charged with two counts of third-degree sexual assault as a result of an incident that occurred on March 30 in a Motor City Casino hotel room.

Each charge carries a prison term of up to 15 years if Reed is convicted. Reed allegedly met a 45-year-old woman at a bar that night before taking her back to his room and assaulting her. Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said that he has interview numerous witnesses and also reviewed surveillance footage before the charges were brought. Reed, who is currently at Triple-A Toledo, is expected to turn himself into the authorities.

Tigers sent RHP Evan Reed outright to Triple-A Toledo.

Reed was designated for assignment by the Tigers last week and passed through waivers without getting claimed by another team. The 28-year-old right-hander had a 4.91 ERA in 25 2/3 innings of relief with Detroit. He is no longer on the club's 40-man roster.

Tigers designated RHP Evan Reed for assignment.

Reed put up a 23/9 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 relief innings for the Tigers this season, but it also came along with a 4.91 ERA. There's a chance the 28-year-old could draw some interest on waivers, though the potential sexual assault charge hanging over his head might scare teams off.

Local 4 TV reporter Shawn Ley reports that the Detroit Police Department has requested that charges be filed against Evan Reed for his alleged sexual assault incident at Motor City Casino.

The alleged incident occurred in a Motor City Casino hotel room on March 30 after Reed met an unidentified woman at a bar earlier that night. Prosecutors are now reviewing the case before a decision to bring about charges is made. Reed has been in the Tigers' bullpen all season, posting a 3.00 ERA and 14/3 K/BB ratio over 18 relief innings.

Police are investigating a claim that Evan Reed sexually assaulted a woman in a Motor City Casino hotel room on March 30.

The woman told police that she met Reed at a bar and then didn't remember anything until waking up in a Motor City Casino hotel room. "The organization is aware of the very serious allegation that has been made against pitcher Evan Reed," Tigers officials said in a statement released Monday night. "This allegation is concerning and we are aware of an ongoing investigation. It would be inappropriate for the ballclub to comment further at this time." Reed hasn't been charged with a crime and is with the Tigers for a five-game roadtrip which will begin Tuesday.

Evan Reed closed out the Braves on Friday by retiring all four batters he faced.
