Prospect Spotlight

Krook’s plus movement and tough left-handed angle have allowed him to rack up gaudy strikeout numbers as a pro, though terrible walk rates have limited his overall success. He switched to the ‘pen last season and fits better there long-term. The Rays sent Krook to Fall League this year, and his struggles there mirrored those of the regular season. He could pitch as a middle reliever with any improvement to his control and command, but that’s far from guaranteed.
