2014 MLB Draft profile: RHP Sean Reid-Foley

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

We are less than one week away from the 2014 MLB Draft, which begins on June 5. The Dodgers pick at No. 22 in the first round, and John Manuel in his latest mock draft for Baseball America projects the team to select high school right-handed pitcher Sean Reid-Foley with their first pick.

In each of Manuel's previous three mock drafts, he tabbed the Dodgers to select Georgia high school right-hander Spencer Adams, but on Friday noted "most clubs have Reid-Foley higher on their boards and suspect the Dodgers are no different."

Reid-Foley went to Sandalwood High School in Jacksonville, Fla. and was rated by Baseball America in May as the eighth-best right-handed pitcher available in the draft:

Reid-Foley is a natural strike-thrower who pounds the zone and mixes his pitches well, and evaluators lauded his competitiveness. Some scouts don’t like the way his arm works in the back, but he is able to repeat his delivery.

He is listed at anywhere from 6'2 to 6'4, and somewhere between 205-215 pounds, and is commited to play baseball at Florida State.

The Dodgers took a high school pitcher with their first pick six times in eight years from 2003-2010, but since drafting Zach Lee in the first round in 2010 the club has taken two college pitchers (Chris Reed in 2011, Chris Anderson in 2013) and a shortstop (Corey Seager in 2012). Manuel says there are signs the Dodgers could pick a college player.

"One source suspects that with so much at stake in the big leagues, Los Angeles will be tempted by one of the fast-moving college relievers such as Louisville’s Nick Burdi, Virginia’s Nick Howard or San Diego State’s Michael Cederoth," Manuel wrote.
