The lack of a third pitch is why I am not on the Crabbe bandwagon just yet, and when I say bandwagon, I mean at this point in the rankings. I do like him quite a bit as a prospect, I just think its as a reliever at this point. Until I hear something more, I still see him as a likely reliever which keeps his value down a bit.
