When MLB Pipeline updated their in-season Top 100 prospects list, they revealed that right-hander Coleman Crow underwent Tommy John surgery this summer. The date of the surgery wasn’t specified, but according to MLB Pipeline the prospect will be out until 2024.
Crow and RHP Landon Marceaux were the prospects the Mets received in return for Escobar back on June 24. When the Mets acquired Crow, he was already on the IL dating back to late April with elbow inflammation. According to The Athletic, the Mets were comfortable with Crow’s medical reports.
Before he was placed on the IL, the 22-year-old was having a promising season. In four starts in Double-A, Crow went 2-0 with a 1.88 ERA and a 0.63 WHIP. He also struck out 31 batters in 24 innings pitched. His last start, on April 26, saw the righty give up two runs in seven innings white striking out six batters.
Last season, Crow appeared in 24 games (23 starts) in Double-A where he pitched to a 9-3 record and a 4.85 ERA. He also struck out 128 batters in 128 innings.
In their updated rankings, MLB Pipeline put Crow as the Mets’ 29th best prospect with an estimated time of arrival to the big leagues being 2025.
