Overall

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.

Command- 40/50
Control- 50/50
