Crawford made his first appearance as a professional ballplayer with the Gulf Coast Phillies of the Gulf Coast League (GCL) in Clearwater, Florida.

Crawford became the fixture of the Phillies’ farm system, the team’s number one prospect according to Baseball America for the rest of his ascent through the minor leagues.
