STOCKTON, CA. - The 2019 MLB Draft was completed on June 5th and on June 9th we started to look toward the 2020 draft class at the Northern California ProCase. A select group of players were invited to participate in this exclusive event geared toward draft prospects and high level collegiate talents with future draft potential. Players were put through a pro-style workout with various stats/data recorded during the workouts which can be found HERE

RHP Treven Crowley (Hilmar HS)

2020 RHP Treven Crowley (Fresno State commit) listed at 6-foot-1, 165-pounds, with a sinewy and lean body type and twitchy actions. He's a high level high school athlete and legitimate 2-way baseball player at the HS level (SS, L/R), not to mention the former starting QB on his section winning high school team. Crowley will give up his time on the gridiron this fall to focus on baseball exclusively going forward.

Crowley has a calm, disciplined delivery, with a pretty short knee lift, though it appears to have gotten a bit closer to waist level recently, which gives him a bit more time over the rubber. He breaks with a quick separation out of the glove and makes a quick shallow circle on the backside. The word 'quick' frequently comes up when describing Crowley on the mound. He gets to a high-3/4 slot, works down the slope with on-line direction, and plants with good stability. As a high level athlete, he's really just scratching the surface of what can come out of his body. With continued strength gains in the coming years his stuff will continue to spike.

The fastball comes out up to 92 mph and he comfortably sits in the 88-90 mph range, with late life and some riding action. When getting to his best extension there is also good down life with the fastball and he's capable of throwing a late sinker. Complementing the fastball is a real quick biting curveball (71-73 mph). Again, when he gets to that good extension it's a swing and miss pitch and also capable of locking up hitters when thrown on the arm side/at front hip of right-handed hitters. When Crowley is calm and not throwing for the radar gun his stuff plays plenty well and allows him to keep the extra gear in his back pocket when needed.

As a position player he has merits that would have drawn recruiting interest, though not likely at the major D1 level. In any case, he's a left-handed hitter with a spray approach mentality and good hands. He plays up the middle with athleticism and of course the plus arm plays across the diamond. Given his all-around athletic background, as a position player and as a quarterback, he transfers so many good intangibles to the mound. Crowley's size may limit some of his ceiling but given that his body works so easily and he's a well-rounded athlete, he likely will get to the mid-90s at some point (at the peak of his range) with a plus breaking ball and change-up that is a usable third pitch.
