Keith Law Mid-Season Top 60 prospect list - no Painter, no Abel, no McGarry but a burgeoning love affair with Justin Crawford -
Crawford, the Phillies’ first-round pick last year, was supposed to be a long-term projection guy who could run and play center but had to add all this strength to get to any power. Wrong, Jack Germondo! Crawford’s BP before the Futures Game had him driving the ball out the other way, and once he gets out of the graveyards of the Florida State League he’s going to start putting balls in seats in the games, which is terrifying because he hasn’t begun to fill out. He is, also, a plus-plus runner who can play center, with 36 steals in 41 attempts, and has already shown strong bat-to-ball skills. This could be very special — he might be the player his father, Carl, was supposed to be but never was.
