Reid-Foley does not throw the change up too often and does not have a great difference in velocity with his fastball. However he sees good movement with this pitch. It’s been more effective out of the zone, but it saw the zone too much resulting in more contact and hits.
Reid-Foley’s curve has the biggest dip in velocity at an over 10 mph differential. He also used this pitch less often with three balls not walking a single batter while striking out almost 30% of batters.
Reid-Foley saw another 30 innings in 2019. His fastball lost a bit of velocity but he was able to keep the ball in the ball park more often allowing only one homer off this pitch. However, he saw more contact overall.
Reid-Foley used his slider a bit more often in 2019 than 2018, however he saw a lot more contact off this pitch including a few home runs. He ended up dropping his K% over 20 percentage points.
His primary offering by a wide margin (63%), Reid-Foley’s fastball was tattooed to the tune of a .440 wOBA and an ugly .304 ISO. Overall it was a very bad pitch evidenced by a -5.8 pVal.
His slider was close to a Money Pitch last year, coming in at a 16.7% Swinging K rate and a zone and chase rate over 40%. This was by far his best pitch with a pVal of 5.1
Reid-Foley only threw his changeup 7.9% of the time and the results were not good with an awful .640 wOBA and .500 ISO allowed. Overall it was a poor pitch with a -2.5 pVal.
Reid-Foley has some nice action on his hook, but not enough to where he uses it a ton. It makes sense since hitters did well against it in 2018. Given his slider is his go-to, it might be best if Reid-Foley dumps the curve to better that slider.
