The Pendelton School, FL
Weight: 220 lbs
Jeff’s Quick Take: Now that we are out of round 4-10, teams can take risks on potentially unsignable, but high upside players. The Cardinals decided to get that tough sign player in Max Foody who they would have to talk out of a commitment to Florida State. Foody is a projectable left-hander with a fastball that is already in the low nineties. If the Cardinals can sign Foody, it would be a huge win. Everything after the jump.
Foody, a Florida State commit, is big and strong at 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds, but remains athletic and showed toughness in coming back from shoulder problems prior to last season. He’s employs a fastball, curveball and changeup, and has hit the low 90s in 2011. He could pitch his way into the first round with a strong spring.
Perfect Game USA:
Athletic LHP with 92 mph FB, very good BB, fast smooth arm. Coming back strong from injury. Outstanding at many PG events.
Rivals ranked Foody the number #68 (college) recruit in the nation and had this to say “Came back strong from injury and has a solid fastball.”
With a fast ball that runs up to 92 MPH and the off-speed to keep hitters off balance, Foody may have an important decision to make come June when the MLB First-Year Player Draft kicks off.
Here’s the MLB scouting report video, but most of it is him hitting and fielding:
Here’s some of him actually pitching on Vimeo. Don’t think I can embed, so here’s the link.
