    Mike Bianucci leads the talent at Auburn, but lefthander Evan Crawford isn't far behind. After starting 27 games--most on the weekends--in his first two years, Crawford pitched out of the bullpen this season, finishing 3-0, 2.42 in 44 innings. He offers a fastball between 88-92 mph and a big breaking curveball that is at times an above-average pitch. Crawford pitches downhill with an over-the-top delivery and creates plane with his 6-foot-2 frame. Command has been his biggest issue in the past, but this year he walked 25 against 42 strikeouts.
