“[Dylan Crews] is one of the best hitters on the planet. He took a first-pitch fastball, and hit it to right-center and off his face on the scoreboard. He gave us a big jump-start — and kind of put the nail in the coffin in this game,”

— Fredericksburg manager Jake Lowery

Golden profile of Crews's trying to blend in on his minor league team even with all the hype.

Make no mistake: The balls that Crews smoked into the gaps during BP made it obvious this was no ordinary low Class A hitter. But beyond those impressive bat-to-ball skills, he had the same pregame look as his less-heralded teammates. Later, he stood alone in center field, working on his pre-pitch routine. There were no distractions, and there was no outside noise — just Crews being one of the guys. It seems he prefers it that way.

To just live and breathe baseball now, it feels very good,” said Crews, the No. 2 pick in last month’s MLB draft. “It’s hard in school to balance all that type of stuff — schoolwork, baseball, workouts. ... To focus 100 percent on baseball, it feels good. I love it. It’s what I’ve dreamed of.”

...

“If you just look at the type of player he is, obviously it’s a good player to be around,” Morales said. “What’s he’s accomplished and everything that he’s done for the sport of baseball has been huge. So being there, listening to what he has to say and learning from him and also him asking questions, too, it’s obviously great to have him as a teammate.”

I'm going to the F-Nats 9/2.  I suspect he'll be long gone by then.

Time to move up.  Wasting time at the low A level.

I’m guessing they’re leaving him there for the moment because they want him to avoid Wilmington?! I wonder if they’ll send him to directly to AA after his stint with the Freddies. Even if he does hit Wilmington, I bet his stay is super short.
