DETROIT (AP) — Former Detroit Tigers pitcher Evan Reed faces an initial hearing in trial court on sexual assault charges.

Reed is scheduled for arraignment Friday in Wayne County Circuit Court on two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

A 45-year-old woman says she met Reed the evening before last opening day at a suburban bar and they went to a downtown Detroit casino hotel. She says she blacked out after drinking and awoke naked in bed with Reed. The woman said she believes she was drugged.

The 29-year-old Reed says their sex was consensual.

An earlier judge said the woman gave contradictory accounts of what happened and dismissed the charges. Prosecutors successfully appealed that ruling.

Reed appeared in 32 games last season for Detroit and 17 with Triple-A Toledo.
