DETROIT — Former Detroit Tigers pitcher Evan Reed is scheduled for trial in July on sexual assault charges.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office says Reed was arraigned in trial court Friday on two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct. A final conference is May 1 and a jury trial is July 13.

The case might not move forward as scheduled, however, due to appeals by Reed. Charges were earlier dismissed and reinstated.

A 45-year-old woman says she met Reed the evening before last opening day 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.

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

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