Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez suggested Foltynewicz will return to a starting role in the second half, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "We know he can do that (bullpen) role," Gonzalez said. "There's no question in our minds he can do that role. But it's an easy move for us in the organization to say, 'Hey, you're a bullpen piece.' Which, for us, it could always be there. (But) let's try to develop him as a starter, see if there's something there. I mean, there's not too many guys that are starting that are 96, 97 miles an hour, carrying it through seven, eight innings."

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Foltynewicz, the Astros' 2012 Minor League Pitcher of the Year, turned in a fine season for Double-A Corpus Christi after a brief stint with Houston's High-A affiliate. The 22-year-old flamethrower appeared in 23 games (16 starts) for the Hooks and went 5-3 with a 2.87 ERA over 103.1 innings. Opposing batters hit a mere .207 against the right-hander, but they also took 52 free passes as Foltynewicz's control problems remained. If he improves his walk rate (4.5 BB/9 in Double-A), Foltynewicz's stock will go up even higher as he emerged as one of the better pitching prospects in the minors last season. He will likely make the jump to Triple-A this season, while the possibility of a late-season callup is not out of the question if he performs well there.

2013

The second time through the Sally League was much better for Foltynewicz than the first: he posted a 14-4 record across 27 starts and lowered his ERA by nearly two runs to 3.14. The improvement was enough to earn him the Most Outstanding Pitcher award in the Sally League and the Minor League Pitcher of the Year award for the Houston organization. The former first-round pick has pitched to contact more in recent years, which has resulted in fewer strikeouts, but (at least last year) better outcomes. While the team is still trying him out as a starter, there are those that think the lack of viable secondary pitches may make him best suited for the bullpen down the line. He will likely begin 2013 in Double-A, still working out of the rotation.
