Tall lefty mixes in a very good mid-90s fastball with late movement, a plus chanegup, and a plus curveball. Solid pitcher's build. Above average control with impressive strikeout numbers. Very projectable at high levels.

A smooth-fielding shortstop with a lefty bat, Crawford has above average tools all around. Makes good contact with very good plate patience. Excelent speed and above average power, Crawford has 20-25 HR potential. Levelheaded and composed on the field. Intense. Very good range inthe field. Excelled in the Cape League in 2007. Has drawn comparisons to Chase Utley. Also played quarterback in high school.
Personally, I like Matusz better because he's a polished lefty who strikes out a lot of batters, which is valuable in fantasy. Crawford is also a good selection but depending on who drafts him, he may be moved to third or outfield by the time he hits the majors, which would make his 20-25 hr projection not all that special for fantasy.
