Drafted in the 2nd round (49th overall) by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2014 (signed for $1,128,800)
In 2013, just three Florida prep pitchers went in the top 10 rounds. This year three could go in the first round, and Reid-Foley could be the first. He showed consistent velocity on the showcase circuit and had one of the top outings at East Coast Pro last summer, and he has built on that this spring, showing the makings of a mid-rotation starter. In a recent outing he sat 92-95 mph, touching 97. He throws his fastball with his fingers held together, giving the offering above-average glove-side run. His mid-80s slider is an above-average offering, though he can get on the side of the pitch. He also has feel for a changeup with at least average potential. His fourth offering was a curveball that he used in the summer, flashing average, though he shelved the pitch as his breaking balls began to run together. Reid-Foley is a natural strike-thrower who pounds the zone and mixes his pitches well, and evaluators lauded his competitiveness. Some scouts don't like the way his arm works in the back, but he is able to repeat his delivery. At 6-foot-2, 216-pounds, the Florida State signee has a large frame and a strong, durable build made to handle innings.
