Large body and frame, good midsection, some physical projection remaining; half windup, compact delivery, tends to rush upper half; cups hand, loses release point; effectively wild throughout, compact but messy arm action, above-average arm speed, three-quarter slot; 1.23-1.38 in stretch
Dunedin Blue Jays (High A, Blue Jays)
50: League-Average Starter
Sat mostly 92-94, 95-97 for shorter spells, some sink, fringe-average movement
11-5 shape, small depth with fair action, some bite, located it moderately well
Potential above-average offering, good tilt and bite; wasn't used that often;, worked the curve more this outing; reserved to finish off righties
Reid-Foley only threw one changeup at 87, did not have feel for the pitch in warm-ups. He was effectively wild with fastball, but has fair command of pitch. Lack of much chance to evaluate the changeup makes his rotation future tougher to foresee. The overall delivery and arm-action are additional question marks as to whether they will hold up in a starting role. The package would work in the bullpen, where the heater can play up and he'd be able to get by with just the breaking balls and no change.
