Once the top prospect for San Francisco, Crick is a hard thrower who can throw as fast as 99 mph with sink. The 6’4” right-hander was a supplemental pick, chosen 49th overall in the 2011 draft.

Crick has been with the Double-A Richmond Flying Squirrels the past two seasons. Fortunately, Crick has been able to limit his base runners more effectively this year. This season, Crick has 70 strikeouts in 60 2/3 innings pitched with a 2.97 ERA.

The achilles heel for Crick has always been his control, as his high velocity fastball and electric slider is Major League ready, but his control is simply not there yet. Count on Crick making an appearance during the 2016 season for San Francisco.
