A judge reinstated a sexual assault case against Reed on Friday, overturning a decision by another judge who found inconsistencies in the alleged victim's story.

Reed is charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct. He was playing for the Detroit Tigers last spring when a woman says she was drugged at a bar before Reed took her to a Detroit casino hotel on the eve of Opening Day. Reed, who wasn't in court, insists he had consensual sex with the 45-year-old woman. He is a free agent after playing for the Tigers and Triple-A Toledo last season.

The Detroit Tigers have promoted right-hander Evan Reed from Triple-A Toledo after a judge dismissed rape charges against the pitcher last week.

The Tigers brought Reed back to the majors before they opened a series at the Chicago White Sox on Friday night. Right-hander Jose Ortego was designated for assignment to create a spot on the 40-man roster. Reed, 28, was facing third-degree criminal sexual conduct charges before a judge said Aug. 21 that the testimony of the woman who accused him wasn't credible and prosecutors failed to show that force or coercion took place.

The Detroit Tigers have designated reliever Evan Reed for assignment, calling up right-hander Chad Smith from Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday.

Reed went 0-1 with a 4.88 ERA for the Tigers. In his last 11 appearances, the right-hander posted a 7.71 ERA.

Detroit announced agreements with right-handers Jose Ortega, Luke Putkonen and Evan Reed, left-handers Kyle Lobstein and Drew Smyly, infielder Nick Castellanos and outfielder Steven Moya.

The Tigers now have 32 players on the club's 40-man roster under contract for 2014.
