White Sox Reveal Plans For Former 1st-Round Pick Pitcher In 2023

He missed the entire 2022 season.

Chicago White Sox pitcher Garrett Crochet is not expected to serve as a starting pitcher in 2023.
Pitching coach Ethan Katz said Thursday that he hopes Crochet will be able to serve as a long reliever at some point in the 2023 season. However, the left-handed pitcher reportedly still needs some extra time to recover after undergoing Tommy John surgery in April. 

Crochet has been throwing from 120 feet as of late, but it's still not clear how much of a workload he'll be able to take on by spring training.

In 2021, Crochet posted a strong 2.82 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 65 strikeouts over 54.1 innings of work. The twenty-three-year-old is a former first-round pick by the White Sox in the 2020 MLB Draft.
