2023 MLB Draft Profile: Dylan Crews

The MLB draft is just around the corner set to take place on July 6, 2023, in Seattle, Wash. While most major sports drafts like the NBA or NFL are huge events that draw lots of views, the MLB Draft has always been one that goes under the radar. This year at Vendetta, I’m hoping to change that by giving you profiles of prospects likely to be taken in the first round. Trey does it every year with his NFL Draft profiles. So let’s bring some of that same energy over to MLB, starting with the profile of Outfielder from LSU Dylan Crews.

When looking at Crews, it’s easy to see why he will likely be the first pick come July. He grades as an elite 70/80 pure hitter with plus power at the plate. His speed is also a plus took grading out at 60/80. The defense and arm could use some work, but are both things that should improve over time.

He has the potential to be a five-tool player and there really isn’t anything on the field he does poorly. Also helping his stock is the fact that he seems like he will be able to play center field. His defense should play well and I don’t see a real need to move him out of his natural position.

Dylan Crews first generated buzz as a prospect back in 2020. Many thought that he could go in the first round but he opted out of the draft to instead attend LSU. Man oh man did he make the right decision. Over his three seasons, he boasts a .380/.496/.694 slash line with 57 home runs and 178 RBIs while walking more than striking out.

His impressive play at LSU has seen him shoot up boards and he has quickly become one of the top available prospects.

Overall, Crews is the complete package as a prospect. He can hit, run, field and throw all at above-average-to-elite levels. Trying to predict the future of MLB prospects seems impossible, but Crews possess all the traits needed to be an elite player.

MLB is currently flush with young talent, so I don’t see why Crews cant be a part of that wave in the coming years. I personally think he should be the No. 1 pick and am fairly confident he will be. But as is the case with every prospect, a lot of time will tell.
