Reds prospect Felt still critical but improving
CINCINNATI -- A Reds Draft pick critically injured during a fatal car accident over the weekend is still in a Texas hospital but has seen his condition improve.

However, according to a Reds spokesman Monday afternoon, 18-year-old Mason Felt remains listed in critical, but stable, condition.

Felt, Cincinnati's fifth-round pick in the 2012 Draft, was involved in a one-car wreck on Interstate 10 outside of Ozona, Texas, on Saturday morning. According to the San Angelo Standard-Times, the accident killed Felt's father, Richard, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

A left-handed pitcher from Hoschton, Ga., who was signed by the Reds following the Draft, Felt did not appear in a game last season due to an elbow injury that required Tommy John surgery. He is currently assigned to the organization's Arizona League rookie-level team.
