The rare kind of lefty who can hit the upper 90's, Tigers prospect Casey Crosby has been working hard to grow in the shadow of Rick Porcello, who presumably has a better publicity department. Crosby has a live curve and a developing change, but his command isn't ready for the majors just yet, as evidenced by the iffy ratios he displayed over the past two seasons in the minors. Still, the Tigers know good stuff when they see it, and tried him in MLB last year to so-so results. If he sharpens his touch a bit, he could step in as a strong number two or three in the Tigers rotation by the end of 2014. He already has good mound presence, great baseball smarts and instincts, and the competitiveness to succeed, so it really does look like a simple accumulation' of time and experience is all that's missing.
