Michael Benton Reed (born November 18, 1992) is an American professional baseball outfielder in the Milwaukee Brewers organization.
Reed was born in Cedar Park, Texas. Before playing professionally, he attended Leander High School in Leander, Texas. He was named one of the top-200 prospects heading into the 2011 draft, coming in at #160.

After hitting .232 his first minor league season, he stole 14 bases in 62 games between the Helena Brewers, Brevard County Manatees and Huntsville Stars in 2012 and in 2013, he hit .286 with a .385 on-base percentage, 13 triples and 26 stolen bases in 118 games for the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. He finished second in the Midwest League in triples and was named to the MiLB.com Organization All-Star team that year. He hit .255 with a .396 on-base percentage and 33 stolen bases in 110 games for the Brevard County Manatees in 2014 after being named the Brewers' 15th-best prospect by MLB.com heading into the season. He was named Player of the Week during the week of May 5. He led the Florida State League in walks and was second in stolen bases as well.
Reed made his Major League Debut on September 26, 2015. Reed was one of nine players who competed to be the Brewers center fielder for the 2016 season.
His father, Benton Reed, played in the National Football League.
