  • Kutter Crawford Looking To Keep Rolling Wednesday

    Headshot for Kutter Crawford

    Boston Red Sox right-hander Kutter Crawford will look to keep up the good work as he takes on the visiting Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday. The 28-year-old earned a rotation spot out of spring training and has worked 10 1/2 innings while allowing two runs (one earned) on just five hits with 12 strikeouts against four walks in that time. He went six scoreless frames in his season debut in Seattle on March 30 before going 4/2 innings with one run allowed at the Angels in his last start but his three walks elevated his pitch count early. Crawford posted a solid 4.04 ERA alongside a strong 18.8% K-BB% across 31 appearances (23 starts) with the Sox in the 2023 campaign. His fantasy value is certainly on the rise, especially if he can maintain big strikeout numbers as he did consistently in the minors.

  • Kutter Crawford Continues Dominant Spring

    Headshot for Kutter Crawford

    Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Kutter Crawford continued his strong spring with another good outing against the Tampa Bay Rays in Grapefruit action on Tuesday. The right-hander went 5 2/3 innings and allowed four hits, two runs, no walks and recorded six strikeouts. The 27-year-old has seen his value rise as Opening Day approaches with his shiny 1.98 ERA and 13 K's to go along with no walks in four starts. Crawford was good down the stretch for the BoSox in 2023 and that has carried over to this spring. Crawford has an ADP of 245, but that should continue to rise after another strong performance. In deeper leagues, Crawford is worth taking ahead of his ADP as he has strong potential to outplay that value.

  • Kutter Crawford Continues To Earn Rotation Spot

    Headshot for Kutter Crawford

    Boston Red Sox starting pitching Kutter Crawford put together another impressive outing in a Grapefruit League matchup versus the Toronto Blue Jays. Crawford went three scoreless innings and allowed two hits with no walks and four strikeouts. In 31 games (23 starts) this past season, Crawford showed serious upside and pitched to 4.04 ERA with 135 strikeouts in 129 1/3 innings. The 27-year-old impressed down the stretch and manager Alex Cora alluded to him likely earning an Opening Day spot in the rotation. Crawford will be battling Josh Winckowski, Garrett Whitlock and Tanner Houck for one of the two open spots, but it looks like it's his job to lose and with two strong showings thus far. With a splitter now in his arsenal, a strong finish to 2023 and two dominant performances in spring thus far, Crawford is an intriguing pick later in drafts for this upcoming season.

  • Red Sox Notes: Crawford, Mata, Yoshida

    Headshot for Kutter Crawford

    While the Red Sox indicated early in the offseason that addressing the starting rotation would be a priority for the club this winter, it seems they’ll go into the 2024 season having only swapped out Chris Sale for Lucas Giolito, at least barring a late bid for Jordan Montgomery. Should the club stick with its…

  • 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.

  • Kutter Crawford Working On Splitter

    Headshot for Kutter Crawford

    Boston Red Sox right-hander Kutter Crawford is working on a split-finger fastball in spring training that he's hoping will better complement his existing arsenal. "All my stuff is moving glove side, away from righties and into lefties. The splitter would open up the other side of the plate," Crawford said. The 27-year-old began eventually settled into Boston's starting rotation in 2023, ultimately finishing 6-8 with a 4.04 ERA (3.83 FIP) and 1.11 WHIP with 36 walks and a career-high 135 strikeouts in 129 1/3 innings over 31 appearances (23 starts). He's locked into a rotation spot to open the 2024 season again and has intriguing strikeout upside. Crawford's biggest issue will be keeping the ball in the ballpark in a hitter-friendly home ballpark, but he's absolutely worth a late-round flier in fantasy drafts with his stock on the rise.
