With the MLB Lockout over, teams are converging on training and finalizing rosters for the season. One of the biggest questions this year for Rick Hahn and the Chicago White Sox is what is the plan for Garrett Crochet? Hahn said that plan has already been formulated and they have a case to base it off of.

It may look a little similar to how Michael Kopech was used in 2021 in terms of the occasional longer outing or the occasional spot start as needed.

This style makes sense. Both Garrett Crochet and Michael Kopech were young prospects that can max out a radar gun. They were used instantly once they reached the big league. This usage potentially played into both their arm injuries that occurred early in their careers.

Kopech came back last year out of the bullpen with frequent usage but a low innings count. This helped him build on his skills. Now, Michael Kopech is slotted into a starter role for the year.

Rick Hahn knows Garrett Crochet has the same issues. But he is able to throw a fastball well and needs to develop his off-speed pitches.

The current setup of the White Sox roster means they will need Michael Kopech and Garrett Crochet to be healthy. This is crucial to make a run in the postseason. As the roster stands, it still may not be enough.

Rick Hahn also hinted at looking into adding more guys before the season. But for the guys they currently have, it sounds like the team is on the same page of developing the prospects they are already deeply invested in.
