As a sophomore in 2018, Feole became the first Connecticut pitcher to tally 120 strikeouts in a season since 1979. He then joined USA Baseball’s Collegiate National Team over the summer, when he was superb. With Team USA, Feole struck out nine batters over 11 innings and held opponents to a .097 batting average, ranking as the team’s 13th-best prospect. A shoulder strain delayed the start of his 2019 season, but Feole has been solid this spring, posting a 3.49 ERA with 72 strikeouts (9.7 per nine) and 39 walks (5.2 per nine) in 67 innings. The 6-foot-1, 194-pound lefthander has an unorthodox, funky delivery that has a lot of moving parts. He throws from a high, three-quarter slot, which affects the consistency of his breaking ball. A pronounced lock out and head whack in his finish also prevent him from consistently repeating out in front. He may never be a great strike-thrower for those reasons—and his track record in college would back that up—but he does throw with good deception that allows his stuff to play up when he manages to find the zone. Feole’s fastball has reached 93 mph at times, but the pitch has been mostly in the 86-90 mph range this spring following his injury. He has a high-spin, 12-to-6 curveball with good depth in the mid-70s, which is a plus pitch when it’s on. Feole has also shown a plus changeup, although he rarely used the pitch with Connecticut.
