Tigers' Evan Reed faces sexual assault complaint

AP - Sports

DETROIT (AP) -- Tigers right-hander Evan Reed is facing a complaint of sexual assault.

Detroit police Sgt. Michael Woody said the alleged victim is being interviewed. Woody did not know when the alleged assault happened.

David Gorcyca, Reed's attorney, said he is very confident Reed will have ''nothing to fear'' once a thorough and full investigation is completed.

''During the infancy of this investigation, no one should formulate any conclusions that a crime has been committed,'' Gorcyca said in a statement. ''Mr. Reed is currently on a seven-day West Coast road trip and has not been contacted by the Detroit Police Department. We plan on cooperating with the investigation when the time is appropriate. Until then, no further comment will be made by me or Mr. Reed.''

The Tigers released a statement Monday night saying the organization is aware of the ''very serious allegation,'' made against Reed, adding the allegation is ''concerning,'' and that it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.

Reed has given up two hits over 2 1-3 innings in two games this season. He was 0-1 with a 4.24 ERA in 16 games last year as a rookie.
