Top Wil Crowe News

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Solid as opener

    Crowe allowed one earned run on one hit and one walk while striking out three across two innings Wednesday against the Cubs. He did not factor into the decision.

    Crowe served as the opener and worked two fairly effective innings before giving way to Mitch Keller. Crowe served up a solo home run to Ian Happ but struck out three of the final four batters he faced. While he started the season strong, Crowe has allowed seven earned runs across his last eight appearances spanning 9.2 innings, which has inflated his overall ERA to 2.74 across 23 frames.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Draws starting assignment

    Crowe is slated to start Wednesday's game against the Cubs in Chicago, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

    Crowe made 25 starts for the Pirates in 2021, but he's worked exclusively as a reliever so far this season, covering 21 innings over 13 appearances while accruing a 2.57 ERA and 1.14 WHIP. Since he hasn't worked more than two innings in any of his outings since April 21 and will be pitching Wednesday on three days' rest, Crowe could be deployed as a glorified opener in front of Mitch Keller, who was initially scheduled to start before being moved to the bullpen.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Falters Wednesday

    Crowe (1-1) allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits and no walks while striking out one to take the loss Wednesday against the Brewers.

    Crowe entered the game in the seventh inning and immediately got into trouble by surrendering singles to the first two batters he faced. It appeared that he induced a potential double-play ball from the next batter, but Yoshi Tsutsugo failed to field the grounder cleanly. That allowed a run to score and the rally to continue. Prior to this appearance, Crowe had not allowed an earned run across his first 13.1 innings. Even after a bit of a struggle Wednesday, he still owns a 0.63 ERA and 0.98 WHIP with a 17:4 K:BB across 14.1 frames.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Excellent in relief

    Crowe (1-0) allowed one hit and struck out five across 2.1 scoreless innings to earn the win Thursday against the Cubs.

    Crowe entered the game in the fourth inning in relief of Bryse Wilson. He struck out five of the eight batters he faced and induced six swinging strikes on a total of 45 pitches. Crowe has yet to allow an earned run across five appearances and 12.1 frames this season while compiling a strong 15:4 K:BB. He has thrown multiple innings in each of his outings, but has been capped at around 50 pitches. As the Pirates search for an optimal combination in their rotation, it's possible Crowe enters the mix if he continues to prove effective in longer stints.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Earns three-inning save

    Crowe allowed one hit and one walk while striking out four across three innings to earn the save Wednesday against the Cubs.

    Crowe was called upon to pitch the final three innings of Pittsburgh's 6-2 win, and he was able to secure the first save of his career as a result. Though Crowe didn't earn a spot in the rotation to begin the season, he has already made three multi-inning appearances out of the bullpen. He has yet to allow an earned run across seven frames while also posting a solid 9:3 K:BB.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Excellent in last start of 2021

    Crowe pitched six shutout innings in a no-decision versus Cincinnati on Friday. He allowed just one hit and two walks with nine strikeouts.

    The right-hander saved his best start of the year for last. The three baserunners he allowed was the lowest total in his 26 appearances, while the nine strikeouts matched a season high. Crowe typically didn't have that much success in 2021, posting a 5.48 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 111:57 K:BB across 116.2 innings. He finishes the season with a 4-8 record, while a 4.4 BB/9 and a 1.9 HR/9 can explain most of his overall poor ratios.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Takes loss against Phillies

    Crowe (4-8) allowed three earned runs in 4.2 innings Saturday, giving up eight hits and four walks while striking out two in a 3-0 loss to Philadelphia.

    The righty, who has surrendered 25 homers in 110.2 innings, threw only 57 of 95 pitches for strikes Saturday. Crowe has completed six innings in just two of 24 starts. He has shown small glimpses of promise -- he threw five innings of one-run ball in his last start. With a 5.77 ERA and 1.63 WHIP, however, the rookie is little more than an innings eater at this young stage of his career.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Fans five in win

    Crowe (4-7) allowed one run on three hits and a walk over five innings Friday, striking out five and earning a win over Miami.

    Crowe earned his first win since July 30 with Friday's solid performance. The only run he allowed came on an Eddy Alvarez single in the second inning and it was the first time in his last five starts that he gave up fewer than three runs. The 27-year-old righty lowered his season ERA to 5.77 with a 100:51 K:BB through 106 innings. Crowe is lined up to face the Reds on the road next week.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: No-decision against former club

    Crowe didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 10-7 win over the Nationals, giving up three runs on four hits and two walks over four innings. He struck out six.

    Facing the team that drafted him in the second round in 2017 before trading him this past offseason as part of the package for Josh Bell, Crowe didn't exactly take his revenge, tossing 46 of 78 pitches for strikes before getting chased from the game after a three-run fourth inning. The right-hander has lasted at least five innings only once in his last seven outings, posting a rough 7.36 ERA and 1.91 WHIP over that stretch, but his 29:15 K:BB over those 29.1 innings does offer a glimmer of upside, and Pittsburgh has nothing to lose by letting the 27-year-old take his lumps down the stretch.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Struggles continue Sunday

    Crowe surrendered seven earned runs in three innings of Sunday's 11-8 loss to the Cubs. He gave up seven hits and two walks while striking out one batter.

    Crowe may be better suited for the bullpen, but Pittsburgh's lack of starting options has thrust him into the rotation. He needed 68 pitches (39 for strikes) to navigate his way through three innings. He'll have to earn his way onto the starting roster in 2022, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him demoted to Triple-A.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Another no-decision

    Crowe didn't factor into the decision Sunday against the Cardinals after allowing three runs on five hits and three walks across five innings, striking out four.

    Crowe has tossed three straight no-decisions and has gone 0-2 with a 5.64 ERA over his last five starts, so he hasn't exactly been a reliable presence on the mound for Pittsburgh. He does own a 22:11 K:BB through 22.1 innings in that span, but at the same time, he hasn't fanned more than five batters in any of those five aforementioned starts. He's projected to make his next start in the upcoming weekend series against the Cubs on the road.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Escapes with no-decision Monday

    Crowe didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 6-5 win over the Diamondbacks, coughing up five runs on eight hits and a walk over 4.2 innings. He struck out five.

    The right-hander fell apart in the fifth inning, and Crowe exited the game on the hook for his eighth loss of the season until the Bucs rallied in the bottom of the seventh. He hasn't completed five innings in any of his last four starts, and Crowe will carry a 5.46 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 84:43 K:BB through 89 innings into his next outing.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Lasts four innings Tuesday

    Crowe didn't factor into the decision Tuesday against the Dodgers after allowing two runs on five hits and two walks while fanning four across four innings.

    Crowe has pitched less than five innings in his last three outings, but at least he's found a way to limit the damage and hasn't given up more than three runs in any of those starts. In fact, he's now gone five straight appearances without allowing more than three earned runs. Pitching deep into games remains a problem for him, but he has still posted a decent 3.72 ERA across 38.2 innings over his last eight contests.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Struggles with inefficiency

    Crowe (3-7) allowed one earned run on four hits and three walks while striking out four across 4.2 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Cardinals.

    Crowe allowed three home runs in his last start, and he managed to correct that issue by allowing no long balls in Wednesday's outing. However, he labored later in the game, throwing 23 pitches in the fourth inning and requiring 26 pitches to record two outs in the fifth frame. Crowe has been decent at preventing runs over his last five outings, as he's recorded a 3.55 ERA. However, he's struggled to work deep into games and has failed to complete five innings in each of his last two starts. For the season, he has a 5.27 ERA with a 75:40 K:BB across 80.1 frames.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Shelled for three homers in loss

    Crowe (3-6) allowed seven runs (three earned) on eight hits and two walks while striking out five across four innings, taking the loss to the Reds on Thursday.

    Crowe surrendered three home runs in the first two innings Thursday. Jonathan India, Eugenio Suarez and Joey Votto's long balls combined for six runs against Crowe. It was the 26-year-old's first time giving up that many homers and it was his shortest start since May 26. He has a 5.47 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP with 71 strikeouts in 75.2 innings. His next start is scheduled for Wednesday against the Cardinals.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Tosses six scoreless frames

    Crowe (3-5) allowed one hit and four walks while striking out four in six scoreless innings to earn the win against the Phillies on Friday.

    Crowe hadn't allowed fewer than two earned runs in any of his outings since April 25, but he worked through some command issues Friday to earn his second straight win. The righty only tossed 53 of his 92 pitches for strikes and got into some trouble when he issued three walks in the top of the fourth inning, but he still kept the Phillies from crossing the plate. Across three starts since the All-Star break, Crowe has recorded a 3.24 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 16.2 innings. He tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Milwaukee on Wednesday.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Fans nine in win

    Crowe (2-5) allowed two earned runs on four hits and one walk while striking out nine across 5.1 innings, earning the win over the Giants on Saturday.

    Crowe allowed three hits in the second inning, leading to one run. His other run allowed came on a solo home run by LaMonte Wade. Crowe's nine strikeouts is a new career high. However, he struggles walking batters with a 4.2 BB/9. The 26-year-old has a 5.89 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP in 65.2 innings.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Pitches into sixth inning Saturday

    Crowe allowed four runs on six hits and three walks in 5.1 innings Saturday, taking a no-decision against the Mets. He also had three strikeouts.

    Crowe worked into the sixth inning for the first time since May 8 but was tagged by J.D. Davis for a pair of two-run home runs and left the game trailing 4-0. The 26-year-old Crowe is now 1-5 in 15 appearances (13 starts) with a bloated 6.12 ERA and 1.62 WHIP across 60.1 innings. He's tentatively lined up to make his next start next week at San Francisco.
