Patrick Crawley is a tall 2018 graduate who pitches and plays 1st base. In the infield Patrick has firm hands, active footwork, and has a controlled approach when fielding. He needs to be more aggressive in his defensive actions, work on his range, and be more sure on his feeds. At the plate Patrick sets up tall with his hands back, takes a short stride, and has some bat speed for his age. During the games he made hard consistent contact and showed a lot of future pop in his swing. He is sometimes early with his timing and can work on having a shorter swing path with more centered balance. On the mound Patrick pounds the strike zone with his fastball and showed good command. He has upside and will need to develop secondary pitches as he gets older. Needs to work on his finish to complete his delivery. Overall Patrick shows abilities with room to grow and improve as he gets older.
