2019 Fantasy Outlook
Reid-Foley can spin a breaking pitch, but the rest of the skill set is underwhelming. While his fastball averaged close to 94 mph during his time in the big leagues last season, the pitch got clobbered to the tune of a .304 batting average, 34.7% line-drive rate and 25% HR/FB. His changeup was similarly ineffective. The curveball and slider in particular are strong and lead to solid chase rates and strikeout numbers, but when he actually throws in the strike zone, hitters can do damage. Reid-Foley knows this -- he's proven susceptible to control issues, having routinely posted walk rates near double digits since entering full-season ball. Looking ahead to 2019, Reid-Foley appears to stand a good chance to serve in the rotation for the rebuilding Blue Jays, but the upside is questionable, and the downside is obvious. It doesn't help that he pitches in a division with the Yankees and Red Sox, and another team in the Rays that's on the up-and-up. Read Past Outlooks

Reid-Foley didn't factor into the decision Wednesday against the Astros, allowing one run on one hit and one walk across 3.1 innings. He struck out five.
ANALYSIS
Reid-Foley was sharp in Wednesday's abbreviated outing. The young right-hander retired the first nine batters he faced before tripping up in the fourth inning, allowing Houston's only run to score on a walk and a single. With the Blue Jays looking to limit the rookie's innings, Reid-Foley was pulled with one out in the fourth inning despite being at just 49 pitches (28 strikes). He'll finish the season with a 5.13 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 42:21 K:BB over seven starts (33.1 innings).

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Reid-Foley mastered High-A in his second try in 2016, placing himself firmly back on the prospect map with his massive strikeout potential. Between Low-A Lansing and High-A Dunedin, the right-hander posted a 130:38 K:BB in 115.1 innings. Reid-Foley is at his best when working down in the zone, and though his chief weapon is his fastball, he was able to toss four different pitches for strikes. The huge improvement in control is also a big takeaway from Reid-Foley's 2016 season, as he walked nearly 30 fewer batters than the season before, despite pitching 20 more innings. With a 2.81 ERA across both levels to boot, Reid-Foley is the clear top pitching prospect in the Toronto system heading into the 2017 campaign. He'll likely begin the year at Double-A New Hampshire, and projects to make his big-league debut sometime in 2018.
