|2016-09-08 19:00:00 (link to chat)||Any update on the "Undisclosed" injury to Sean Reid-Foley? Is this injury serious and does it change his TOR potential upside?|
(Brad from NJ)
|Reports I've seen from Toronto reports say he's dealing with forearm soreness...We won't know if it's a serious concern until he starts throwing again. He had a fantastic year. Plenty of reason to be optimistic for the future. (George Bissell)|
|2016-08-24 20:00:00 (link to chat)||It looks like Sean Reid-Foley's control problems have gotten better. What is his upside if he keeps that control issue under wraps?|
(Monty from Toronto)
|If he keeps the control issue under wraps, he should be very good. That's a big if, though. And he'd still have to stay healthy, which is no small feat for pitching prospects in general. There's a lot to like, but there are pretty wide error bars on him, too. (Scooter Hotz)|
|2016-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Can you compare Erick Fedde and Sean Reid-Foley? They seem very similar, but does either have a better upside, or a higher floor that they will hit?|
(Monty from Toronto)
|Taking this question as it is a good followup to the previous Erick Fedde one.
I think that's a good point in terms of their similarities. The stuff is more the same to me than their frames and track records of durability, and it's for that reason that I think there's some difference in their respective floors.
They're both hard-throwing guys with heavy fastballs, who go to sliders as their primary out pitch. In those ways, they're similar--as are the sinker/slider mid-rotation profiles they both have in the best case.
I would say that Reid-Foley is the more durable frame, and though both guys have some funk to the arm-action in the back of the delivery, I'd probably say Reid-Foley gets through his mechanics with less noise overall. I love Fedde's stuff, when he's on, it is about as good as anyone in the minors. (about as good, note that I said 'about as good' please...)
But the durability questions and how that's impacted the amount of time Fedde has had to develop as a starter at the pro level likely give the 'floor' category to Reid-Foley for me, just because I think he might be the SAFER bet to remain a starter. That said, if Fedde clicks and is the more dynamic of the two in a big league rotation in the best case, don't be surprised. Fedde's stuff--from a 'raw pitches' standpoint--is really, really nasty on his best nights. Three definite 60 pitches, the fastball sometimes a little better when he's running it to 95-96 with above-average arm-side life. (Adam McInturff)
|2015-07-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Sean Reid-Foley has produced some nice K/9 numbers so far, but how concerned are you with his command? The walks are very high, in my opinion, but I'm not sure if it's something that has shown signs of improving.|
(Steve from Toronto)
|Reid-Foley just got promoted to Dunedin, so I should get a look at him soon, but yes, the walks are concerning and his command was a major issue in the draft. There are some scouts who hated his mechanics. (Jeff Moore)|
|2015-06-15 19:00:00 (link to chat)||Sean Reid-Foley has extreme swing and miss stuff. How do you view his upside? Future #2 or #3 starter.|
(Arios from Utah)
|That's the upside, but I'll take the under due to control problems. (Brendan Gawlowski)|
|2015-02-09 20:00:00 (link to chat)||Hey Nick who was your favorite guy from the 2014 MLB draft that did not make the list?|
(Mo from MN)
|Touki Toussaint, Michael Chavis, Sean Reid-Foley, Jack Flaherty, Derek Fisher, Max Pentecost, Michael Kopech, Luis Ortiz, Forrest Wall. There's been a solid influx of low-minors talent. (Top 101 Chat)|
|2014-09-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)||Have you heard anything about how Sean Reid-Foley has looked in his first pro-season?|
(Steve from Winnipeg)
|The stuff is good, but his delivery is really concerning. He's got a really high back elbow, and plenty of arm drag. It's a max effort reliever profile for me. (Jordan Gorosh)|
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
