White Sox Pitcher Garrett Crochet Becomes First 2020 Draft Pick to Reach Majors


(670 The Score) The White Sox have called up 21-year-old left-hander Garrett Crochet, their first-round pick in the amateur draft in June.

The move came along with a dose of bad news, as the White Sox placed reliever Evan Marshall on the 10-day injured list with shoulder inflammation. Marshall has had a superb season, posting a 2.49 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 22 appearances. White Sox general manager Rick Hahn expressed hope that Marshall could return for the team’s last regular season series, which would put him back in a position to be ready for the playoffs. The White Sox host the Cubs in a three-game set from Sept. 25-27 to end the regular season.

Crochet had been working at the White Sox’s alternate camp in Schaumburg as the minor league season was cancelled amid the pandemic. He will work out of the bullpen and will be under consideration for the playoff roster, Hahn said.

The White Sox are also hopeful that reliever Aaron Bummer (biceps) can return by the end of the regular season, Hahn said.
