Ocean Springs alum Garrett Crochet leaves White Sox game with forearm tightness
From college pitcher to first round draft pick to first ever Major League post-season appearance all in a span of less than seven months, the future is very bright for Ocean Springs alum Garrett Crochet, but that future might be on hold.
Today, the 11th overall pick of the Chicago White Sox in the 2020 first year players draft was the first pitcher out of the bullpen in a winner-take-all game three against the Oakland Athletics.
After striking out the first two batters he faced, Crochet left the game with forearm tightness likely an UCL injury which could be code for Tommy John.
Either way, bad break for the lefty out of Tennessee who was consistently firing over 100 miles per hour during his first few outings.
In six regular season innings, Crochet had eight strike outs without allowing a single run.
