Phillies Promote J.P. Crawford from Lakewood to Clearwater

In finishing up the move of Roman Quinn from SS to CF, the Phillies have promoted J.P. Crawford to Clearwater where he will play everyday starting Wednesday. Crawford has cemented himself as the #1 prospect in the system and is on the edge of the top tier of SS prospects.  There is still plenty for him to work on, including driving the ball more consistently, but he is a very polished player for a high school player in his first full year of pro ball.
