The first round pick of the Chicago White Sox in the 2020 draft, Crochet was removed after facing just two hitters in game three of the AL Wild Card series against the Oakland Athletics.

The former Greyhound should be ready to go for spring training come February fresh off an explosive rookie debut with eight strikeouts and no earned runs in his first six regular season innings.
