6. Hans Crouse
|22||6’4||180||RHP||2nd round 2017 draft by the Texas Rangers||A|
We’re still high on Crouse even with the injury he dealt with. He pitched through bone spurs in 2019 and had them removed after the season. He did not participate in the Instructional League. So needless to say, this is a big development year for him. Crouse changes things up on the mound with his few different deliveries, all to throw the batters timing off. In 2019, he spent the season with the Hickory Crawdads (A) and had a 6-1 record, a 4.41 earned run average and a 1.198 WHIP. He struck out 76 and issued 19 walks in his 87.2 innings.
Crouse’s 1st Bowman auto: you can find one from $20-$30. I paid more for mine before they dipped in price.
