Phillies prospect J.P. Crawford picked up three hits on Sunday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
All three hits for singles. Crawford has been crushing the ball since July, so a three-hit game is no surprise. What was surprising was that for the first time in his career, he played third base. He's no longer a plus-plus defender at short, but he's still a competent defender at the premium position. What this (might) tell us is that the Phillies want to expand his flexibility. If Crawford wasn't hitting this well, that wouldn't happen. This is a good sign.
