Mike Foltynewicz was granted free agency in November and it will be interesting to see where he lands post-lockout.
He played several seasons with the Atlanta Braves before being traded to the Texas Rangers. He started in 24 of the 28 games he pitched in. He was a dismal 2-12 throwing 139 innings and 92 strikeouts. For his career, he is 46-54 in 166 games pitched, starting 142 games. He threw 825 innings with 752 strikeouts.
He throws a four-seam fastball, slider, sinker, changeup, and curveball. Folty could be a good middle reliever. If he were to join the Cardinals, the pitching staff would likely have him narrow down his pitch selection. If he did this and could prove he could still throw multiple innings, he could be an opener or the piggy back to an opener. It would be interesting to see how he would do with the Cardinals as he does have good stuff.
