Jason Foley Pro Career
Foley appeared in six games with the Connecticut Tigers in 2016, mostly at the short-season single-A level, but he made a name for himself in 2017 with the West Michigan Whitecaps at the Class-A level.
Foley had a 1.55 ERA with five saves, 36 strikeouts to just five walks, and a WHIP of 0.86 in 18 appearances and 29 innings, giving up just five earned runs.
At the end of the season, he was promoted to the High-A Lakeland Flying Tigers, where he pitched 7.1 innings and gave up five runs.
Foley, on the other hand, had Tommy John surgery prior to the 2018 season and did not play professionally for the entire season.
Prior to his operation, Foley was hailed for his velocity, hitting 101 MPH on his fastball. When he returned to Lakeland in 2019, he lost velocity but remained healthy for the entire season.
Foley finished the year with a 3–3 record and a 3.89 ERA in 36 bullpen appearances. He struck out just under one batter per inning and had a 1.43 WHIP.
Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, Foley did not play in any professional games in 2020, but in 2021 he was added to the Detroit Tigers’ alternate-site roster in Toledo, where players on the 40-man roster and off the roster (like Foley) played games to stay in shape.
Furthermore, with Casey Mize’s first appearance of the season and his consequent departure from the Tigers’ MLB.com Top 30 Prospects rankings, Foley entered the list at #30.
Foley’s contract was selected by the Tigers on June 6, 2021, and he was promoted to the major leagues for the first time.
Foley had a 3.60 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and ten strikeouts in nine appearances (ten innings pitched) with the Toledo Mud Hens before he was promoted.
That day, he made his MLB debut against the Chicago White Sox, pitching a scoreless inning of relief.
