RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Crawford has steadily climbed through the Phillies' minor league system since he was selected in the first round of the 2013 draft. He spent the first half of last season at Low-A Lakewood before earning a promotion to High-A Clearwater to close out the season. Crawford has impressive tools. He has shown an excellent eye at the plate, makes contact at a good clip and keeps his strikeouts in check. He showed some signs of power growth in the second half of last season with eight home runs in 271 at-bats for Clearwater. If Crawford continues his progression, he'll likely hit Double-A by the middle of 2015, with the hope of a late 2016 or early 2017 arrival to Philadelphia.
The Phillies drafted Crawford, who is the cousin of Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford, in the first round of the 2013 draft. Crawford fields with ease, showing agility and quickness in the infield. His bat has the potential to hit for average with some pop. He got off to a fast start for the Gulf Coast League Phillies and earned a promotion to Low-A Lakewood in August, making him one of the youngest players at that level in 2013. The Phillies will likely send him back to Lakewood rather than keep him in extended spring training at the start of the year, and Crawford could see time at High-A Clearwater later in the season should his performance warrant a promotion.
