Pirates' Kyle Crick: Traded to Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick was traded to the Pirates on Monday along with Bryan Reynolds in exchange for Andrew McCutchen, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Crick will be one of two pieces headed back to Pittsburgh in exchange for one year of McCutchen's services. The 25-year-old was shifted to the bullpen in 2017 and performed well enough in his new role to earn a promotion to the Giants in June. While he posted a respectable 3.06 ERA across 32.1 innings of relief in his first major-league stint, Crick likely benefitted from a .233 BABIP and could be in line for some regression next season, especially if he doesn't lower his problematic walk-rate (4.7 BB/9 in 32.1 major-league innings). The right-hander does, however, throw a high-90s fastball, and could blossom into a high-leverage reliever down the road if he can shake his control issues. In the meantime, he should factor into the middle-to-back end of Pittsburgh's bullpen.

Giants' Kyle Crick: Notches first career hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick recorded two outs -- one via the strikeout -- for his first career hold in Friday's 11-6 loss to the Cardinals.

Crick entered the seventh inning with two runners on base and got the job done to preserve a one-run lead. The converted starter has done a bang up job as a middle reliever, posting a 2.92 ERA with an 8.4 K/9 through 24.2 innings. Walks (4.0 BB/9) continue to plague the 24-year-old, but his solid overall performance has all but sealed a spot in the Giants' bullpen next season.

Giants' Kyle Crick: Tagged for two runs Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick surrendered two runs while recording a pair of strikeouts in an inning Monday against the Athletics.

Monday's outing broke up Crick's modest 7.2-inning scoreless streak. The former starter has held his own in the Giants' bullpen, posting a 2.93 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 13 appearances. However, walks (4.7 BB/9) continue to plague the 24-year-old, and he simply isn't striking out enough batters (7.6 K/9) to warrant consideration as a ratio-boosting reliever.

Giants' Kyle Crick: Performing well in first big-league action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick has struck out five and given up three earned runs in 7.2 innings this season.

Getting his first taste of the big leagues, Crick has been able to hold his own in limited exposure to major-league hitters. With only one walk so far, he's been able to keep his WHIP down with a mark of 0.91. The big question will be if the 24-year-old can keep his walks down, a task that has troubled him along his path in the minors.

Giants' Kyle Crick: Fires 2.1 innings in major-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick made his major-league debut Thursday, holding the Braves to one hit (no runs) over 2.1 innings. He did not walk or strike out a batter.

If his name wasn't on his jersey, we may not have recognized Crick based on his solid control and lack of strikeouts in his first major-league relief appearance. The 2011 first-round pick finally made strides as a reliever at Triple-A Sacramento this season, posting a career-best 3.0 K/BB ratio accompanied by a 2.76 ERA after looking like a lost cause for the majority of his professional career. The 24-year-old should contribute strikeouts as a reliever going forward, but he will likely be used in low-leverage situations -- like Thursday's seven-run deficit -- until he strings together solid outings.
