White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Takes loss in 10th inning

Crochet (0-1) allowed an unearned run and a walk with one strikeout in one inning, taking the loss in Sunday's extra-inning defeat against the Royals. Crochet will take the blame for the loss, as his throwing error allowed Michael Taylor to score the go-ahead run in the top of the 10th inning. The 21-year-old Crochet has yet to allow an earned run in 4.1 innings this season. He's posted a 0.69 WHIP, six strikeouts and a hold in three outings.

Is Garrett Crochet different, or just the circumstances?

When we last saw Garrett Crochet in a game that counted, he departed with the assistance of a trainer because he dropped from 99 mph to 96 mph over the course of nine pitches. Reports of diminished velocity during the spring prepared me for a similar lack of triple-digit heat whenever Crochet pitched in front of a pitch tracker in 2021. Even then, when lefty Jared Walsh opened up on Crochet’s second pitch of Saturday night’s game and ripped it foul into the seats down the right field line, the 96.5 mph reading registered similar feelings of alarm.

White Sox's Garrett Crochet: Sets down seven straight

Crochet struck out three over 2.1 perfect innings in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Angels. Crochet entered with two outs and two on in the bottom of the fifth and got the final out, then retired the next six batters in order. He pitched exclusively as a one-inning reliever during spring training, but as a collegiate starter, Crochet has the variety of pitches necessary to navigate multiple innings and needed just 26 of them to shut down the Angels. It was the young prospect's first appearance in 2021 after a successful introduction to MLB last year. He has yet to allow a run or walk in 8.1 innings in the majors.
