Kutter Crawford "In The Lead" For Rotation Spot

  • Headshot for Kutter Crawford

    Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora said that as of Saturday, right-hander Kutter Crawford is "in the lead" for a spot in the Opening Day starting rotation behind Lucas Giolito, Nick Pivetta and Brayan Bello. Garrett Whitlock, Tanner Houck and Josh Winckowski are fighting for the final spot in Boston's rotation. Crawford has been working on a split-finger fastball this year, which could make him even more effective in a starting role. The 27-year-old opened last year in the rotation as well before eventually moving to the bullpen. He had a 4.20 ERA (3.64 FIP) in 21 starts for Boston last year. Crawford has a deep arsenal and a fastball that generates a lot of swings and misses. He's a pitcher on the rise and a name to keep an eye on in deep-mixed leagues early in the season.
