|J.P. Crawford begins career with impressive hitting streak |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/17/13) Phillies shortstop prospect J.P. Crawford produced a nine-game hitting streak to kick off his career playing for the GCL Phillies. The 2013 first-round pick (16th overall) had multi-hit games for the final five games of his hitting streak.
Crawford is batting .375 (18 for 48) with one RBI, one triple, two doubles, five walks and seven runs in 13 games. He also has four stolen bases and has been caught stealing three times.
Crawford was considered the 15th-best prospect in the 2013 MLB draft class by Baseball America. Crawford hit .459 (45 for 98) with a .735 slugging percentage, one home run, eight doubles, eight triples, 31 RBI and 37 runs in 31 games as a senior for Lakewood (Calif.) High School. He was also 22 of 25 on stolen-base attempts.
|Although the Phillies already had a top-100 prospect at shortstop -- Roman Quinn -- that didn't stop them from drafting Lakewood High (Calif.) prospect J.P. Crawford with the 16th pick in the 2013 MLB draft. Crawford made an immediate impact upon turning pro, as he won the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League batting title, hitting .345 in 39 games. Crawford earned a late-season promotion to low Class A Lakewood, but the results weren't as good, as the 19-year-old shortstop hit just .208 in 14 games. Still, his early success in the GCL shows why the Phillies weren't hesitant to add another top shortstop prospect to the system. Crawford might only develop moderate home run power, but he has a good knack for getting on base and using his speed on the base paths. He had a .405 on-base percentage and 14 steals in 53 games last season. Crawford is also lauded for his strong defensive skills, which could be the reason he ascends quickly through the minors. However, Crawford is likely a few years away from his MLB debut, so he's nothing more than a long-term Fantasy keeper.
