Crocker is much more physical than the other top outfielder from Northern California, Fresno State's Dusty Robinson, and they're very different players. Scouts can project more with Crocker more than they can with Robinson, who is what he is. Crocker is an above-average runner with some juice in his bat, though he doesn't turn on balls as well as he should. He has an inside-out approach right now, but could definitely start showing his power more as he gets into pro ball and loosens up his swing. Crocker is an impressive athlete with a chiseled, 6-foot-3, 230-pound frame. He's a hard worker with an unusual amount of upside remaining for a college junior.
