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.
