Comments
Fastball:Crow fired his fastball up to 96 mph.
Fastball movement:He showed some life in the strike zone.
Slider:He threw a hard power slider that clocked in up to 87 mph.
Changeup:Crow showed a good feel for a changeup.
Control:He had good command and was generally around the plate. His fastball command was better as he was inconsistent in spotting his secondary pitches
Poise:Crow is very poised and agressive, going right after hitters.
Physical Description:Crow has a loose and athletic frame and fits the mold of a projectable right-hander.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Electric stuff, flashing three plus pitches and the ability to maintain velocity deep into starts.
Weaknesses:He's got a slight flaw in his delivery, where his wrist flops or wraps in back. He usually comes out of it, but it makes it a little harder for him to pitch to the extension side.
Summary:After a strong Cape season, he was high atop Draft lists heading into the season. He's done nothing to hurt his status, showing three plus pitches to dominate hitters and establish himself as one of the top college arms, if not the top college arm, in the Draft class.
