Garrett Crochet adds 15 pounds of muscle this offseason

White Sox pitching prospect Garrett Crochet added 15 pounds of muscle this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

Crochet was the No. 11 overall pick in the 2020 draft, and he already made his MLB debut late last season. The 21-year-old is an electrifying lefty whose "stuff" plays very well out of the bullpen. He'll operate out of the bullpen once again this year and is a name to monitor in leagues that count holds.

Garrett Crochet will open season in MLB bullpen

White Sox general manager Rick Hahn announced Garrett Crochet, the team's first-round pick last summer, is expected to open the 2021 season in the major league bullpen.

Fantasy Impact

Crochet fast-tracked to the majors last summer, making five regular-season appearances just months after being drafted. He was dominant when on the mound, surrendering just three hits while striking out eight and walking zero. He also faced two batters in the postseason, striking out both. His early success in 2020 should give the White Sox plenty of confidence as they set their sights on the postseason under the management of Tony La Russa. Crochet is currently ranked as the 116th reliever in the latest expert consensus draft rankings.

Garrett Crochet diagnosed with a flexor strain in left forearm

White Sox LHP Garrett Crochet has been diagnosed with a flexor strain in his left forearm.

Fantasy Impact

Crochet left Game 3 of Chicago's Wild Card Series against the A's with the injury. This is considered good news as Crochet's UCL remains intact. The plan is for the electric lefty to progress over the next few weeks but as of now he shouldn't have any restrictions during the spring. Crochet was the team's first-round pick this past summer and pitched six scoreless innings out of the bullpen during the regular season.

Garrett Crochet exits Game 3 due to forearm tightness

Garrett Crochet was removed from Game 3 of the Wild Card Round due to forearm tightness.

Fantasy Impact

Crochet was electric before exiting, recording two outs in relief (both via strikeout). His velocity was down when he came out for the second inning, however. This is concerning for White Sox fans. The team will likely update his status in the coming days.
