Scouting Report:

After being used sparingly as a freshman and then struggling in the Northwoods League, Jonathon Crawford started putting the pieces together during his sophomore year.  If I were to rank him just off of the games I watched him pitch, Crawford would probably be one of my top 5 college players (and I didn’t see his no-hitter).  He is a likely first rounder with a chance to climb into the top half of the first round.

  • Low to mid 90′s fastball that touches 97
  • Some reports of 98
  • Fastball has late sink
  • Above average slider with plus potential
  • Both his curve and change show good potential, as well
  • Struggles with command at times, but is improving in that aspect
  • High 3/4 arm slot

Quotes:

Bethune-Cookman coach Jason Beverlin after Crawford’s no-hitter-  “Crawford did an unbelievable job pitching. That’s probably an understatement. He was moving the ball in and out, keeping us off balance and was ahead in the count all night.”

Awards/Achievements:

  • 2012 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team
  • 2011 Named the #10 Prospect in the Northwoods League by Perfect Game
