Crochet is expected to require Tommy John surgery, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Crochet will receive a second opinion before committing to the procedure, but the outlook doesn't look good for the young lefty. If he winds up undergoing the procedure as expected, he'll miss all of this season and a good portion of next year as well. That may also affect his planned transition to a starting role, something the White Sox had been hoping would happen in 2023.
