Garrett Crochet News
Chicago White Sox left-hander Garrett Crochet (shoulder) has begun a rehab assignment with Double-A Birmingham, according to MLB.com, as he continues to deal with left shoulder inflammation. It's the 24-year-old's second rehab stint since hitting the injured list in mid-June, but his first assignment ended after he felt shoulder soreness. Crochet has just 10 innings of work under his belt since 2021, but he does own a career 2.69 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with 82 strikeouts over 70 1/3 innings. The club is hoping for a return to action before the season is over for Crochet, who could be a factor in the later innings once he's back.
Chicago White Sox relief pitcher Garrett Crochet (shoulder) was pulled from his rehab assignment. The left-hander is bothered by inflammation in his shoulder, the same issue that put him on the shelf back in June. However, with the latest setback, it's unknown when Crochet will return, although it likely won't be anytime soon.
Chicago White Sox relief pitcher Garrett Crochet (shoulder) is starting a minor league rehab assignment with Double-A Birmingham on Sunday. Crochet has been out since June 20 with left shoulder inflammation. The former top prospect has struggled mightily this season out of the Sox bullpen with a 3.60 ERA, 2.10 WHIP, and 9:11 K/BB ratio over just 10 innings. The shoulder issue likely had something to do with it, though. He should make his way back to the big league club sometime after the All-Star break.
Selected 11th overall in the 2020 draft, Crochet wasted no time in showing he was capable of getting out big-league hitters. The hard-throwing lefty reached the Majors with a reputation for being able to tickle 100 mph with his heater but he was also known for having command issues which made him more hittable than he should have been in college. Crochet's strong fastball-slider mix which was 85% fastballs in his debut held opposing hitters to an invisible 0% Barrel rate and a very low 8% Sweet Spot rate. Unfortunately, the young pitcher's season was cut short by forearm strain, which did not require surgery but creates some concern moving forward. The White Sox have not committed to a role for Crochet as the 2021 season nears but we're operating under the assumption that he'll open the year as a multi-inning reliever capable of pitching in high-leverage situations who will be stretched out enough to also act as an emergency starter. Crochet's ADP currently sits around 435 which is low when taking his talent and ceiling into consideration but the uncertain role and injury scare are reasonable concerns.
