Former Detroit Tigers pitcher Evan Reed is expected to be placed on probation after pleading no contest to misdemeanor aggravated assault. He entered the plea last month in an agreement with prosecutors to resolve a sexual assault case. A no contest plea isn't an admission of guilt but is treated as such for sentencing. Two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct have been dropped. A woman says she met Reed the evening before opening day 2014 at a suburban bar and they went to a Detroit casino-hotel. She says she blacked out after drinking and awoke naked in bed with Reed.
