  • Crawford spent one season in the DSL and dominated, then was brought stateside in 2016. The power armed lefty worked his way to LoA Great Lakes and was instrumental in capturing the Midwest League Championship. He has received comps to Jorge De La Rosa if he continues to develop and remain a starter. For a comprehensive scouting report on Crawford, visit DodgerDigest.com

TOP AL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE

LHP Brett Adcock (LoA Quad Cities – Houston) 21 years old
6 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 11 K, Win
Season Stats: 1-0, 1.14 ERA, 23.2 IP, 15 H, 3 ER, 7 BB, 37 K in 5 appearances with 4 starts 
  • Adcock was a 4th round pick in 2016 from the University of Michigan. He missed most of the short-season at Tri-City after he suffered an injury in his third start. Astro followers scoffed with Adcock being taken at such a high round, but that has subsided with his nice start to 2017. I recently released my top American League pitchers for April and the left-hander earned a mention for the Astros. Adcock’s 11 K’s set a career high.
 
 American League – Starters 
RHP Gerson Garabito (LoA Lexington – Kansas City) 21 years old
6 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 2.50 ERA 
 
RHP Alexis Tapia (HiA Charlotte – Tampa Bay) 21 years old
4 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 7 K
  • Tapia earns his first start in 2017. At only 21 years-old, Tapia was signed in 2012 by the Twins and was traded to the Rays in 2015. He enjoyed a mini breakout in 2015 in the Appy League, then making two appearances at HiA Fort Myers, after the trade. The Venezuelan native hit the DL after only 2 starts in 2016 and missed the remainder of the season. Tapia has projection with his 95 mph fastball and a very good changeup. With only 10 Lo-A innings to his resume (103.1 IP rookie league), his time with Charlotte should be watched closely.
RHP Erik Swanson (HiA Tampa – New York Yankees) 23 years old
6 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 1.50 ERA
 
RHP Jordan Romano (HiA Dunedin – Toronto) 24 years old
6 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 9 K, 2.76 ERA
RHP Scott Blewett (HiA Wilmington- Kansas City) 21 years old
7 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, Win 1-2, 3.15 ERA
 
LHP Anthony Misiewicz (HiA Modesto – Seattle) 22 years old
7 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 8 K, Win 1-1, 3.56 ERA
 
 
American League – Relief
RHP Andrew Case (HiA Dunedin – Toronto) 24 years old
1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, Win
