DETROIT (AP) — Former Detroit Tigers pitcher Evan Reed has pleaded no contest to misdemeanor aggravated assault and is expected to be placed on probation to resolve a sexual assault case.

Reed entered the plea on Friday in Detroit in an agreement with prosecutors. 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.

Reed says their sex was consensual.

Reed appeared in 32 games last season for Detroit and 17 with Triple-A Toledo. Sentencing is Aug. 7 or sooner.
