DateQuestionAnswer
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think about Daniel Corcino and Casey Crosby? What is their ceiling?
(boneil33 from Boston)
Realistically, solid set up guys. (Bret Sayre)
2011-08-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you still think Casey Crosby has a future as a SP? If not, would his stuff play up enough in a bullpen role to be a plus late inning reliever?
(bretsayre from nyc)
I think he would make a better reliever, just because the stuff could be near elite in bursts. He could be a legit setup arm in relief. (Jason Parks)
2011-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Casey Crosby....will the continuing arm issues force him to the bullpen eventually? Or will they continue to have him start until the arm blows up again?
(lemppi from Iowa)
I definitely could see a bullpen move in his near future. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-01-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Happy New Year KG! Whats the outlook for injured prospects Jared Mitchel, Ryan Westmoreland, and Casey Crosby?
(Jquinton82 from NY)
What up James! Mitchell looked very rusty in Arizona, and it's bothersome because he's the kind of prospect who really needs reps as a player who is quite raw for his age. There is still no official timetable (if any) on Westmoreland, but he was doing some hitting off a tee in the fall. As for Crosby, he's also firmly in that mystery category, and on a medical level, his elbow LOOKS fine, but he could never throw without pain. We won't know how he is until this spring. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-11-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Casey Crosby merely a bonus now for the Tigers if he ever materializes? Or do you think there is still a fair bit of hope?
(lemppi from Ankeny, IA)
Just a strange year for him, surprised he never had surgery, so now, I'm just left anticipating it. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-05-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do you hear about a timetable for Casey Crosby? Is he ever going to meet his potential or will injuries continue to hinder him?
(achaik from ME)
He's had a setback with his bone bruise, and the early June return isn't going to happen. It's obviously a concern. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Kevin, have you heard any updates on Casey Crosby's sore elbow?
(jar75 from Pittsburgh)
It's reportedly just inflamation, but they are going to be very cautious. (Kevin Goldstein)
