DETROIT (AP) -- Prosecutors in Detroit say they plan to review a request for charges against a 28-year-old Detroit Tigers player following a sexual assault complaint.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office announced Wednesday it has received a warrant request and a charging decision isn't expected this week.

The prosecutor's office didn't release the player's name, but said the alleged assault took place March 30 at MotorCity Casino Hotel in Detroit.

In April, The Associated Press and others reported 28-year-old Tigers right-hander Evan Reed was facing a sexual assault complaint.

A statement Wednesday from David Gorcyca, Reed's attorney, says Reed has fully cooperated with investigators. The statement says they're confident the case "will be closed" after a review from prosecutors.

The Tigers are in Cleveland to wrap up a series Wednesday against the Indians.
