2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)Jonathon Crawford has dominated at West Michigan this year (outside of the first start). When do you think he is promoted to Lakeland? How his the the secondary stuff coming along and do you ultimately see him as a starter or back end bullpen guy?
(Zack from Windsor)
He's been dominant, and it was a weird assignment in the first place. He's from Florida, is a college guy, and pitched at college in Florida. Lakeland made the most sense to me. Anyway, he's dominating at WMI, and the MWL hitters have virtually no chance against the slider.

The secondary stuff isn't necessarily the issue, as far as I'm concerned. The slider is a true wipeout pitch, probably a 7, but I'm more worried about the velocity and the delivery. He's really, really stiff, and the motion kind of reminds me of Tyson Ross with the short stride. His change up isn't fully developed yet, but the Tigers are going to give him every chance to start until he proves he can't. I like him as a middle of the rotation guy. He should be promoted soon, but the problem is that there are a few other guys at WMI that also deserve to be moved up. (Jordan Gorosh)
2013-06-07 10:30:00 (link to chat)How quickly can the Tigers three picks last night help out? All are college guys, close to majors?
(Mark from Toledo)
Detroit grabbed Jonathon Crawford (rhp, Florida), Kevin Ziomek (lhp, Vandy) and Corey Knebel (rhp, Texas) with their three day one selections, and all have their share of evaluators who feel they are bullpen arms long term. Ziomek is still partaking in college ball (Super Regionals this weekend, followed by Omaha if Vandy wins) so his pro load will depend on when he signs and how many innings he's thrown. Knebel will flash "now" stuff that can get out MLB bats, but in my opinion is too inconsistent to be trusted with meaningful innings this year. He could be ready at some point next year. I'd assume Crawford was drafted with starting in mind. He'll need some minor league innings to try and find more command of his stuff--maybe a 2015 ETA? (Nick Faleris on the MLB Draft)
