2017

2016

Crawford is the top prospect in the Phillies' farm system and is one of the top prospects in all of baseball. After missing the first month of the season with an oblique strain, Crawford was assigned to High-A Clearwater, but was quickly moved up to Double-A after slashing .392/.489/.443 in his first 21 games. His numbers at Double-A are not overly impressive at first glance, but it is important to remember that he was just 20 years old last season, making him one of the youngest players at the Double-A level. He hit just five home runs in 351 at-bats, but maintained his excellent walk rate despite facing advanced competition, and continued to earn praise for his defensive abilities. Crawford reportedly suffered a slight tear in his thumb ligament during Arizona Fall League play, but is expected to be fully healthy for the start of spring training. The Phillies could start him back at Double-A this season, but he should push his way to Triple-A and possibly the majors before the end of the 2016 season.

2015

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.

2014

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.
