RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Arguably the Giants' top prospect, Crick held true to that title in 2013, posting a 1.57 ERA (2.37 FIP) with an impressive 12.5 K/9 in 68.2 innings with High-A San Jose. He did have an issue with his control (5.1 BB/9), and that is something he will have to fix before making it to the majors, even if it means taking a little bit off his stuff and taking a slight cut in his strikeout rate. Crick should start the year at Double-A Richmond with a chance for a September callup if he continues to dominate minor league hitters.
Crick was the Giants' first-round pick in 2011, and he had a successful season in Low-A Augusta with a 2.51 ERA (3.15 FIP). The 20-year-old right-hander features a fastball that averages 92-94 mph and can touch 98 mph along with a slider, curveball and changeup. Scouts have said all of his secondary pitches need some work, and his control has been an issue (5.4 BB/9). Despite being raw, his potential is off the charts as his fastball has the ability to miss bats (10.4 K/9). Crick looks to be headed to High-A for 2013, and could reach the majors by 2015 is he can improve his control.
