Chicago White Sox left-hander Garrett Crochet will likely need Tommy John surgery, general manager Rick Hahn indicated. After exiting Thursday’s Spring Training game early, Crochet underwent an MRI and the results were “not great,” according to Hahn.

Crochet took a fast track to the big leagues partially due to the COVID-shortened 2020 season. The White Sox drafted him in June of that year and he made his MLB debut just over three months later.

Initially reaching 100-plus MPH on the radar gun consistently, Crochet suffered a flexor strain during the 2020 playoffs. He returned to the White Sox bullpen last season, posting a 2.82 ERA, 2.80 FIP, and 10.8 K/9 rate across 54.1 innings.

Now, Garrett Crochet will likely miss the entire 2022 season if he undergoes Tommy John surgery. The lanky southpaw will seek a second opinion, but the initial prognosis coupled and his injury history point to him going under the knife.
