White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Not expected to start in 2023
Pitching coach Ethan Katz said Thursday that Crochet (elbow) isn't expected to serve as a starting pitcher in 2023, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Katz also said he hopes Crochet will be able to serve as a long reliever at some point in 2023, but the southpaw still needs additional time to recover after undergoing Tommy John surgery in April. Crochet has been throwing from 120 feet recently, but it's not yet clear how much work he'll be able to take on once spring training begins. He shouldn't be expected to be available for Opening Day.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Transferred to 60-day IL
Crochet (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday.
Crochet remains out for the entirety of the 2022 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but the move to the 60-day IL allows the White Sox to open a spot on their 40-man roster. In a corresponding move, the team selected the contract of pitcher Davis Martin from Triple-A Charlotte. Martin will make his major-league debut as the starter for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Royals.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Placed on injured list
Crochet (elbow) landed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Crochet won't pitch again until sometime in 2023, as he underwent Tommy John surgery Tuesday. While he's merely on the 10-day injured list for now, he'll presumably shift to the 60-day whenever the White Sox need another spot on the 40-man roster.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Opts for Tommy John surgery
Crochet (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery Tuesday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Crochet sustained an injury in Thursday's Cactus League matchup against Cincinnati, and he'll be forced to miss the 2022 campaign and a sizable portion of next season following his procedure. The White Sox had hoped that the southpaw would be able to transition to a starting role by 2023, but his lengthy layoff could affect that plan.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Exits with trainer
Crochet exited Thursday's Cactus League contest against the Reds with an apparent injury, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Crochet faced only two batters before suffering the apparent injury and leaving with an athletic trainer. The exact nature of the issue is currently unknown, though he reportedly showed some discomfort in his arm prior to exiting. Crochet was expected to serve as a key part of the team's bullpen in 2022, but his start to the campaign may now be delayed.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Likely needs Tommy John surgery
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.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Hopes to start in 2023
Crochet is following last year's Michael Kopech plan and is hopeful he will move into the rotation in 2023, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Kopech threw 72.1 innings last season (including the playoffs) and made four starts and is now competing for a rotation spot. Crochet, who is three years younger than Kopech, logged 56.2 innings (including the playoffs), and he only logged two or more innings on six occasions, never surpassing three frames in an outing. He was able to have a normal offseason, which was not the case heading into last year, as he spent last winter rehabilitating from a flexor strain. Crochet's fastball and slider will always be his top two offerings, but if his changeup improves and he stays healthy, he should be given the chance to follow in Kopech's footsteps.... See More ...

White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Takes loss Tuesday
Crochet (2-4) did not retire a batter and allowed four runs on four hits to pick up the loss Tuesday against the Pirates.
Crochet, who has been very good out of the bullpen, was entrusted to pitch the seventh after the White Sox took a 3-2 lead in the top half of the inning. However, the left-hander permitted four consecutive singles and was replaced by Aaron Bummer, who gave up a hit that produced the fourth run charged to Crochet. It was the third straight outing in which Crochet allowed at least one run, and it raised his season ERA from 1.19 to 2.78.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Earns win, extends streak
Crochet (2-2) picked up the win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday, throwing a perfect eighth inning and striking out two in a 6-1 victory.
Crochet was the pitcher of record when the White Sox plated five in the bottom of the eighth to earn the rookie's second win of the season. He hasn't allowed a run in his last 13 innings (12 appearances), striking out 16 but walking nine during that run.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Throws two innings Tuesday
Crochet struck out two over two scoreless innings in Tuesday's 6-5 loss to Cleveland.
On the day it was announced that Crochet would make only single-inning appearances, the left-hander shut down Cleveland over two perfect innings. His usage may be more about pitch count than innings. He needed just seven pitches to dispatch Cleveland batters in the seventh inning, then came out for a second frame.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Remains in limited role
Crochet will be limited to single-inning outings going forward and will not pitch back-to-back days, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
The flame-throwing lefty has only made two appearances of more than an inning this season, and he's yet to pitch on consecutive days. Crochet clearly has the talent to be an oft-utilized, high-leverage reliever, but the White Sox appear to be conserving his arm for the time being.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Silences Birds
Crochet pitched a perfect eighth inning to pick up the hold in Sunday's 3-1 win over Baltimore.
Crochet shut down the Orioles after the White Sox took the lead in the bottom of the seventh inning. It was his ninth consecutive appearance (8.1 innings) without allowing a run, although he's walked seven during that stretch. The left-hander's walked nine over 13.2 innings this season, which is alarming, but Crochet has made good situational pitches to avoid damage.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Earns first MLB win
Crochet (1-2) earned his first win Tuesday, striking out one over two-thirds of an inning in a 9-3 victory over the Twins.
Crochet entered a tie game with one out and men at the corners in the top of the sixth inning. The left-hander induced a shallow fly to right field then a strikeout, keeping the score knotted up and setting the stage for the White Sox to take the lead in the bottom half of the inning. This was Crochet's first outing since being activated off the injured list.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Returns from injured list
Crochet (back) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday.
Crochet wound up with a minimum-length stay on the injured list due to an upper-back strain. He'd given up just one earned run in nine innings prior to suffering the injury, though his 8:5 K:BB is less than convincing. Alex McRae was optioned in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Out with back strain
Crochet was placed on the 10-day injured list with an upper-back strain Thursday.
Crochet dealt with a blister during his most recent outing Sunday, but it's an entirely separate issue that will send him to the injured list. The move can be backdated by three days, leaving Crochet eligible to return next Thursday, though it's not yet clear whether he's expected to do so. Luis Robert (illness) was activated from the injured list in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Devlops blister in strong outing
Crochet developed a blister on his hand while throwing three scoreless innings in Sunday's 8-4 win over the Rangers, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports. He allowed three hits and a walk while striking out one to earn his third hold.
Crochet was seen bleeding from his thumb during the eighth inning when he got out of a jam with a double-play lineout. It's unclear how the blister will impact him going forward, but after throwing 46 pitches Sunday, Crochet will not be available for the next few days.... See More ... See Less
