Kyle Crockett
Name: Kyle Richard Crockett
Born: Dec 15, 1991 in Newport News, Va. USA
College: Virginia
Ht.: 6'2" / Wt.: 175 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: L
Drafted in the 4th round (111th overall) by the Cleveland Indians in 2013 (signed for $463,600)
A high school teammate of Virginia Tech third baseman Chad Pinder, Crockett has served as Virginia's closer this season, racking up 10 saves in 23 appearances while going 4-0, 1.26. The stat that jumps off the page is his 51-4 strikeout-walk ratio in 43 innings--even more notable because three of those walks were intentional. He has excellent command, having walked just 25 hitters in 135 career innings, and is especially tough on lefties. He has a long, whippy arm action and sits at 90-92 mph with his fastball. His slider is at least average. He has started just three games for the Cavaliers but some teams might give him a try in a starting role. Most scouts, however, see him as a less physical Paco Rodriguez who could move quickly to the big leagues.
