Crosby named Detroit Tigers’ top prospect

By on March 11, 2010

The 2010 Sporting News Baseball Preview magazine, available at newsstands everywhere, lists Kaneland High School alum Casey Crosby as the Detroit Tigers’ top prospect.

“Slowed by Tommy John surgery shortly after being drafted in the fifth round in 2007 and eventually signing with the Tigers, Crosby started showing why he was so highly regarded last season,” the magazine said.

Crosby, who went 10-4 with a 2.41 ERA for Class A West Michigan in 2008 was also listed as being part of a possible trade for slugger Matt Holliday, then of Oakland, last year.
