Top Wil Crowe News

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Injury considered minor

    Crowe's right elbow inflammation is considered minor, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.

    Crowe landed on the injured list with his elbow issue, but Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that the right-hander probably wouldn't have required an IL stint if the season wasn't ending. It seems likely that the 28-year-old will be able to have a fairly normal offseason program.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Out with elbow inflammation

    Crowe landed on the 15-day injured list with right elbow inflammation Saturday, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.

    The timing of the injury means that Crowe's season is over, though it's not yet clear if the injury will carry over into next season. He'll end the season with a 4.38 ERA and 1.39 WHIP (both career bests) in 76 innings of work. Junior Fernandez was recalled to take his place on the roster.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Blows game Tuesday

    Crowe (5-10) took the loss in Tuesday's 9-8 loss against the Yankees. He allowed five runs on four hits and one walk without recording an out.

    Crowe entered the ninth inning with a healthy 8-4 lead but failed to record an out and suffered the loss. He allowed a solo home run off the bat of Aaron Judge to start the inning and then allowed the Yankees to load the bases for Giancarlo Stanton, who crushed a walkoff home run. The showing increased his ERA by more than half a run to 4.15 and is his third time allowing three or more runs in his last seven appearances.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Notches two-inning save

    Crowe allowed two hits and two walks over two scoreless innings Monday, striking out one and earning a save over the Reds.

    Crowe put two Reds on base in each of the eighth and ninth frames but escaped both threats to finish off the 6-3 win. He was 2-3 with a blown save and a 6.39 ERA over his 12 previous outings since he last recorded a save Aug. 2. The 28-year-old lowered his season ERA to 3.64 with a 64:34 K:BB through 56 appearances.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Stumbles in loss

    Crowe (5-8) allowed three runs on three hits and took a loss against the Brewers on Monday. He was charged with a blown save and recorded just one out.

    Crowe served up a game-tying home run to Garrett Mitchell in the eighth inning followed by Keston Hiura's walkoff blast in the ninth. The 27-year-old righty saw his season ERA jump from 3.12 to 3.51 after the rough outing. Monday was his first save chance since Aug. 2 and his first blown save since July 29.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Picks up win

    Crowe (5-7) allowed one hit and struck out one across 1.1 scoreless innings to earn the win Friday against the Reds.

    Crowe entered the game in the eighth inning with runners on first and second and allowed an inherited runner to score, which gave the Reds the lead. However, he threw a clean ninth inning and the Pirates rallied for a walk-off victory to give Crowe his fifth win of the season. Crowe has only one save since David Bednar (back) landed on the injured list, though he has picked up a pair of wins across his last five appearances. For the season, Crowe has maintained a 3.27 ERA and 1.20 WHIP with a 59:26 K:BB across 63.1 frames.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Handed seventh loss

    Crowe (4-7) took the loss during Sunday's 8-7 defeat at the hands of the Giants, allowing two runs on two hits and a walk while striking out one in 1.1 innings.

    Crowe navigated a clean eighth inning on 12 pitches, and manager Derek Shelton opted to stick with the reliever for the ninth after Pittsburgh took the lead in the top of the inning. A leadoff Evan Longoria single brought the winning run to the plate, and Thairo Estrada tagged Crowe for a walkoff home run with one out. The 27-year-old has now faltered in the ninth inning after submitting a stress-free eighth in consecutive games. Closer David Bednar (back) is due to return from the IL within the next week, which could spell the end of Crowe's chances to accrue saves.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Steps in for save

    Crowe (4-6) didn't allow a baserunner and struck out one across 1.1 innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Brewers.

    Crowe bailed out Yerry De Los Santos in the eighth inning, recording the final out of the frame with two runners on base. Crowe went on to pitch a clean ninth inning in a tied game and appears to be the preferred option to close games with David Bednar (back) sidelined. After some struggles in June, Crowe has posted a 1.93 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and an 11:3 K:BB across his last 14 innings.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Picks up third save

    Crowe struck out the side and surrendered a hit in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Tuesday against the Brewers.

    Crowe was called upon to protect a two-run lead and worked around a one-out single to tally his third save of the season. With David Bednar (back) unavailable, the closer role could be up for grabs in the short term in Pittsburgh. While Yerry De Los Santos once appeared to be next in line for save chances, Crowe followed him into the game Tuesday. Crowe has quietly had a strong season, maintaining a 3.16 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and a 56:24 K:BB across 57 frames.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Takes third loss

    Crowe (2-3) allowed one earned run on three hits while striking out three across 1.1 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Tigers.

    Crowe struck out the side in the seventh inning but allowed three consecutive singles to begin the eighth. He's primarily been used for single frames in recent appearances, and even after taking the loss Wednesday, Crowe has maintained a 2.08 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 17:4 K:BB across his last 10 appearances.

  • Pirates' Wil Crowe: Grabs second save

    Crowe pitched a perfect ninth inning to earn the save in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Dodgers.

    David Bednar was called upon to cover two innings Monday, so he wasn't available Tuesday. Crowe was able to deliver his second save of the season, retiring Kevin Pillar and Mookie Betts on flyouts before ending the game with a Freddie Freeman groundout. Crowe has filled a versatile role in the bullpen this year, though his previous save was of the three-inning variety against the Cubs on April 13. He's at a 2.35 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 30:13 K:BB with a 2-2 record, three holds and two blown saves across 30.2 innings in 20 appearances.

  • 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.
