JP Crawford came in behind Austin Meadows, Lucas Giolito, Reese McGuire, Dominic Smith, and Franklin Berreto, all of who were higher draft picks or big international signings who put up big years.
BA notes that Crawford has good hand eye coordination and plate discipline. His swing can get loopy but there is fringe average power potential. Crawford is an average runner with good instincts and defensive profile that should stick at SS. Crawford’s final GCL line was 167 PAs 8 2B 3 3B 1 HR 25BB 25K and a .345/.443/.465 triple slash line.
Any information on Crawford and other GCL Phillies from the BA chat at 1:30 PM ET will be posted here as well. Continue reading JP Crawford #6 on Baseball America’s GCL Top 20
