Reid-Foley will be stretched out as a starter in camp, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Reid-Foley spent time in both the rotation and the bullpen last season, but he didn't fare too well in either role. His 4.26 ERA in 31.2 innings looks decent, but it came with a 5.68 FIP and a 28:21 K:BB. He doesn't appear to be a favorite to win a rotation spot this spring.
Reid-Foley was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
This move comes after Reid-Foley was roughed up as the primary pitcher in Tuesday's 16-3 loss to the Dodgers, allowing five runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two across 1.2 innings. The soon-to-be 24-year-old now owns a 4.26 ERA, 1.71 WHIP and 28:21 K:BB across 31.2 big-league innings this season. Look for Reid-Foley to return when rosters expand in September. Jason Adam was recalled from Buffalo in a corresponding move.
Reid-Foley (2-4) was charged with five runs on five hits and two walks over 1.2 innings while striking out two in Tuesday's 16-3 loss to the Dodgers.
Reid-Foley's last four outings had come as a traditional starter, but manager Charlie Montoyo decided shortly before the contest that he would deploy the righty behind opener Buddy Boshers. Though he entered the game staked to a 1-0 lead, Reid-Foley unraveled in the third inning, ceding three extra-base hits in the frame as the Dodgers turned the game into a runaway. It's unclear if Montoyo will stick with the opener/primary pitcher arrangement when Reid-Foley's next turn in the rotation comes up Sunday in Seattle.
Reid-Foley (2-3) allowed three runs on four hits and a hit batsman while also issuing three walks and recording three strikeouts across 3.1 innings while taking a loss against the Rangers on Wednesday.
The Rangers had baserunners in all four innings against Reid-Foley. During his last two frames, Reid-Foley hit a batter and walked two hitters, with the pair of free passes eventually resulting in runs. Reid-Foley has alternated wins and losses in his last four outings, but his ERA rose more than half a run as a result of Wednesday's start. He owns a 3.00 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 26 strikeouts in 30 innings across eight appearances this season. Reid-Foley will make his next start Tuesday at the Dodgers.
Reid-Foley allowed one run on five hits with two walks and five strikeouts across five innings while earning a victory against the Yankees on Friday.
The 23-year-old gave up just one solo home run on his way to victory. He's only 2-2, but Reid-Foley has settled into the MLB and has allowed just two earned runs in his last 17 innings. While his 1.50 WHIP isn't great, Reid-Foley has shown some real progress lately. He owns a 2.36 ERA, .233 batting average against and 23 strikeouts in 26.2 innings. Reid-Foley will start next at home against the Rangers.
Reid-Foley (1-2) took the loss after allowing four runs (one earned) on four hits and four walks while striking out two over four innings Sunday against the Orioles.
Reid-Foley surrendered one run in the first inning, followed by three unearned runs in the second. Prior to Sunday's outing, he'd tossed 8.1 scoreless innings over his last two appearances, and although he was hit with the loss in the series finale, his ERA sits a 2.49 with 18 strikeouts across 21.2 frames this season.
Reid-Foley (1-1) got the win against the Royals on Tuesday, giving up no runs on four hits over five innings, striking out four and walking four as the Blue Jays won 9-2.
With Marcus Stroman's trade to the Mets, Reid-Foley was given the first crack at taking the rotation spot, and he responded to the opportunity in blanking the Royals over his five frames despite issuing four free passes. He has a solid 2.55 ERA over his 17.2 big-league innings this season, and if he can continue to pitch well he should maintain his grasp on Stroman's old spot.
Reid-Foley was recalled to start Tuesday against the Royals.
Reid-Foley could be pitching for a permanent spot in the Blue Jays' rotation with Marcus Stroman now a Met. He owns an unimpressive 4.70 ERA in 46 career innings, with his 13.1 percent walk rate generally overshadowing his 26.2 percent strikeout rate.
Reid-Foley is expected to be called up from Triple-A Buffalo to start Tuesday's game against the Royals, Rosie DiManno of the Toronto Star reports.
Reid-Foley started Sunday in Buffalo's 4-0 win over Durham, but covered only one inning before exiting the contest after word surfaced that the Blue Jays had dealt staff ace Marcus Stroman to the Mets. Since Stroman had been in line to start Tuesday in Kansas City, Reid-Foley makes for the most logical option to fill the opening in the big-league rotation. Reid-Foley's 19-pitch appearance Sunday was essentially equivalent to a between-starts bullpen session, which should allow him to handle a normal workload Tuesday if he is in fact summoned to the big club.
Manager Charlie Montoyo hinted Sunday that Reid-Foley could be a replacement in the Toronto rotation for the injured Clayton Richard (lat), Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Richard was diagnosed with a left lat strain after exiting Saturday's win over the Yankees and is set to miss at least one turn through the rotation following his placement on the 10-day injured list. A replacement will first be needed Thursday in Boston, with Reid-Foley likely at the top of the list to enter the rotation since he and Richard were on the same pitching schedule. Though Reid-Foley acquitted himself decently enough in his first four outings (two starts) with Toronto this season (3.55 ERA, 1.34 WHIP in 12.2 innings), he's struggled to find the strike zone consistently at Buffalo. Over 76 innings with the Triple-A affiliate, Reid-Foley has issued a whopping 60 walks.
Reid-Foley was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.
Reid-Foley has a 1.69 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and nine strikeouts in 10.2 innings over his last three MLB appearances. Per Wilner, he is a strong candidate to rejoin the big-league rotation after the All-Star break.
Reid-Foley had four strikeouts and didn't allow a baserunner over 3.1 innings out of the bullpen in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.
Reid-Foley was scheduled to start Wednesday but was instead used as a long reliever when starter Trent Thornton was unable to finish three innings. According to Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca, Jacob Waguespack (shoulder) is now expected to be activated off the injured list to start Wednesday's contest.
Reid-Foley is listed as the Blue Jays' probable starter for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.
Toronto will award Reid-Foley a second turn through the rotation after he limited the Royals to two runs over 5.1 innings while taking a no-decision in his previous outing. Though he was able to get through that start relatively unscathed, Reid-Foley's numbers at the MLB (4.82 ERA in 9.1 innings) and Triple-A levels (5.87 ERA in 69 innings) don't portend sustained success, particularly against tough offenses like Boston's.
Reid-Foley gave up two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out three in 5.1 innings Friday against the Royals. He did not factor into the decision.
This was just the third time in nine MLB starts that Reid-Foley logged five or more innings while allowing two or fewer runs. This was a good enough effort to keep him in the rotation going forward. He will likely start Wednesday's game against the Red Sox. Reid-Foley has decent stuff, but his shaky command has held him back thus far as a big leaguer.
Reid-Foley is scheduled to start Friday against the Royals, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Assuming the right-hander isn't used out of the bullpen during Wednesday's series finale against the Yankees, he'll join Toronto's starting rotation Friday in place of the injured Edwin Jackson (back). Reid-Foley has made two appearances (one start) for the big club this season, compiling a 6.75 ERA, 2.75 WHIP and 5:5 K:BB in four innings. It's unclear if Friday's outing will be a spot start or if the 23-year-old will be given an opportunity to stick in the rotation for more than one turn.
Reid-Foley was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.
Reid-Foley made one appearance for the Blue Jays early in the season but has spent the bulk of the season in Buffalo, where he's recorded a 5.87 ERA in 69 innings. Toronto has been using an opener for one spot in the rotation, a spot Reid-Foley could eventually fill, though off days mean a fifth starter won't be needed for over a week. Jordan Romano was optioned in a corresponding move.
Reid-Foley (back) allowed three runs on four hits and five walks while striking out five over 5.1 innings in Triple-A Buffalo's 9-5 win over Rochester on Sunday.
We'll start with the good: Reid-Foley wasn't forced to miss a turn after leaving his previous start with a back strain. The bad: he continues to incessantly nibble, walking four or more in seven of his 11 appearances so far this season. There will be innings available for the taking in Toronto this summer; Reid-Foley will have to show improvement with his command and control in order to grab hold of a major-league roster spot.
Reid-Foley exited Tuesday's start at Triple-A Buffalo with a strained back, Gregor Chisholm of The Toronto Star reports.
Reid-Foley will be evaluated further Wednesday, but early indications are that he may not be forced to miss a start. The 23-year-old has a 6.60 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 50:34 K:BB through 45 innings at Buffalo this season.
Reid-Foley gave up two runs on four hits and two walks over eight innings while striking out eight for Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday.
The 23-year-old right-hander has had a fairly miserable start to 2019, getting roughed up in his only big-league outing and struggling to find the strike zone consistently for Buffalo. Reid-Foley seems to be righting the ship, however -- he set season highs in innings and strikeouts Thursday, and over his last four starts he's got a 3.81 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 23:14 K:BB over 26 innings, working at least six frames in each. Given the state of the Jays' rotation, a few more solid performances could earn him a ticket back to Toronto.
Reid-Foley was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday.
Reid-Foley will head back to the minors after struggling in a spot start earlier in the week, allowing five runs (three earned) on four hits and two walks in two innings while striking out three in a loss to the Orioles. The 23-year-old posted a 3.90 ERA and 10.3 K/9 across 85.1 innings (16 starts) with Buffalo last season and should remain one of the team's top options should an opening arise in the big-league rotation. Thomas Pannone is a candidate to start in place of Reid-Foley on Saturday against the Indians.
