A four-year starter at UC Irvine, Crumlich has been a perfect fit in coach Mike Gillespie's system: a savvy gamer whose baseball skills stand out more than his tools. He is a patient hitter who works counts and sprays the ball around the field, and he can hit doubles into the gap on occasion, but he offers no home run power. Crumlich is a fringy runner who lacks the range and arm strength to play shortstop in the big leagues, but he a very sure-handed, instinctive defender, and he should be able to hold down short for a while in the minors. Scouts describe him as a steady-Eddie type player with an outside shot to grind his way to the big leagues, and he'll add plenty of value as an organizational player at minimum.
