Tigers right-handed pitching prospect Jonathon Crawford went five innings for Low-A West Michigan on Friday.
Crawford scattered six hits and two walks, allowing three runs against the Fort Wayne TinCaps. Crawford has struck out eight batters in his last four starters over 22 2/3 innings. He came from a big college program (Florida), and has a mid-90s fastball and a promising slider, so it is somewhat surprising that he has not performed better in the Low-A Midwest League.

Tigers agreed to terms with first-round pick RHP Jonathan Crawford.

Baseball America's Jim Callis reports that Crawford will receive $2.0017 million, matching the slot value for the No. 20 pick. Some feel Crawford might wind up in the bullpen, but he can run his fastball up to 96 mph and he has flashed promise with his slider.

Tigers selected University of Florida right-hander Jonathan Crawford with the 20th pick.

Crawford is a little smaller than teams prefer their right-handers, but he's been durable so far and he has a nice fastball-slider combination. His changeup will determine whether he sticks as a starter. If it fails to come along, he might turn out to be a late-game reliever instead.
