Debut Details
June 22, in a 12-11 loss to the Braves. The third of four pitchers, he allowed one hit in two-and-one-third scoreless innings. Of 33 pitches, 26 were for strikes. He inherited two runners and allowed one to score. Coming on as the third pitcher of the inning with two on and two outs in the bottom of the fifth in relief of right-handed reliever Bryan Morris, he allowed a single to right by Danny Santana which allowed Brandon Phillips to score before getting Matt Adams to fly out to left to end the inning. In the sixth, he retired Kurt Suzuki on a fly out to center, Dansby Swanson on a pop-up to second and then got Johan Camargo to ground out back to the mound. In the seventh, Lane Adams and Ender Inciarte both flew out to center and Ian Krol flew out to left.

Player Notes
In his first year as a full-time reliever since his pro debut in 2011, Crick was summoned when the Giants needed an extra arm out of the bullpen with the suspension of RHP Hunter Strickland. Now in his seventh pro season, all with the Giants, he joined the team out of Sherman HS (Sherman, TX) with great stuff but spotty control. The Giants have exercised patience as they've smoothed out his mechanics, his delivery and his approach, and while he's dropped a few ticks on the blazing fastball he had as a teenager, he's also come on as a legit big league prospect in relief, despite falling out of Baseball America's Top 30 this past offseason (he'd checked in at No. 27 coming into 2016). He boasts a career 3.37 ERA in 478 2/3 innings, striking out 540 and limiting opposing hitters to a .225 BAA but stalled out at Richmond (Double-A) when he spent all of 2014, 2015 and 2016 there. The 2016 season marked a career low for him, as he went just 4-11 with a 5.04 ERA in 23 starts, leading the organization in losses and walks (67). In 2013, he'd really gotten on the map at San Jose (High A) when he posted a 1.57 ERA in 14 starts and dazzled with 12.45 SO/9, fanning 95 in 68 2/3 innings while walking 39 and allowing 48 hits. That came on the heels of his first full season at Augusta (Class A) in 2012 when he posted a 2.51 ERA with 128 strikeouts in 111 1/3 innings and 75 hits for a .193 BAA.
