Garrett Crochet News
The Chicago White Sox have activated left-handed relief pitcher Garrett Crochet(back) from the 10-day injured list. Crochet spent the minimum amount of time of the shelf with an upper back strain. Crochet was the White Sox's first-round pick last season and has a 1.00 ERA in nine innings this year. The lefty is projected to be a starter in the long term and holds the most fantasy value in dynasty leagues at the moment. Relief pitcher Alex McRae has been optioned to Triple-A Charlotte to make room on the roster for Crochet.
The Chicago White Sox activated outfielder Luis Robert (illness) from the injured list on Thursday and placed rookie left-handed pitcher Garrett Crochet (back) on the 10-day injured list (retroactive to April 26) with an upper back strain. Infielder Danny Mendrick was also recalled from the alternate training site. Robert was put on the injured list on Tuesday will flu-like symptoms. Get him back into your starting lineups, as he is hitting a cool .305/.356/.463 with eight doubles, one triple, one homer, six RBI and 10 runs scored in his first 21 games this year. Crochet has posted a 1.00 ERA with an earned run, eight strikeouts and a hold in eight relief outings over nine innings in 2021. Mendrick, who has hit .375/.524/.375 in eight games this season, will be a bench bat for the Pale Hose in the short term.
Chicago White Sox relief pitcher Garrett Crochet had a strong season debut versus the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday. The lefty fireballer went 2 1/3 innings and didn't allow a hit, run or walk on the evening. He also punched out three Angels and exited with a chance to pick up his first victory, but Evan Marshall struggled and eventually picked up the loss for the White Sox. Crochet was drafted as a starting pitcher, but the White Sox will use him out of relief in rookie season with the hopes that he could be a strong multi-inning option out of the pen. Crochet can hit the upper 90s of the radar gun and compliments it with a nasty slider. The lefty may not pick up saves, but can be valuable in leads that value ratios and holds.
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.
