Kyle Crockett Promoted to the Major Leagues

Posted: Updated:

Former Virginia closer Kyle Crockett has been promoted to the Major Leagues by the Cleveland Indians.

Crockett jumped from AA Akron to the Big Leagues Friday, and will have a chance to make his Major League debut when the Indians host Oakland and former Cavalier Sean Doolittle in Game One of a three-game series.

Crockett has six saves and a 0.57 ERA in 16 appearances for Akron this season.

The former Wahoo was a 4th round selection by Cleveland last year, and is the first member of the Class of 2013 to reach the Big Leagues.
