Pirates' Kyle Crick: Could throw over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Crick (triceps) could resume throwing over the weekend, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Crick was placed on the injured list Tuesday with a right triceps strain, but he doesn't look as though he'll be in line for an extended absence. Though he'll likely be limited to playing catch if he ends up throwing this weekend, if all goes well, Crick could be cleared to get back on a mound early next week.

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Heads to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a right triceps strain, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear at this time how long the righty will be sidelined. Crick has been a highly effective option out of Pittsburgh's bullpen, posting a 1.59 ERA in 11.1 innings pitched. Chasen Shreve was recalled to fill Crick's roster spot.

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Strong start continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick hurled a scoreless seventh inning in Sunday's 3-0 loss to the Cardinals.

He's given up just one hit with an 8:4 K:BB in 10 innings covering 10 games. The righty will likely continue to serve as closer Richard Rodriguez's setup man. Crick, who has two holds, has decreased his fastball usage (43.2 percent) while increasing his slider (56.1 percent). He's regained two miles-per-hour (92.9 mph) over 2020, but he's still well below his 2019 fastball level (95.3 mph).

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Makes season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick allowed no hits and one walk in a scoreless inning of Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Cubs. He struck out one batter.

He bumped up his fastball velocity (92.9 mph) from last season (90.9 mph), though the speed is still down from his career average of 95.5 mph. Not surprisingly, Crick struggled with his control, throwing only eight of 17 pitches for strikes. The 28-year-old, who is slated for high-leverage situations, could easily move into the closer's picture if manager Derek Shelton decides Richard Rodriguez is better suited for a setup role or is traded.

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Returns from COVID IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick was reinstated from the COVID-19 IL on Sunday.

The Pirates optioned right-hander Wil Crowe to make room for Crick on the active roster. As Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic noted, Crick was away due to the birth of his child and had to clear COVID protocols before rejoining the team. Richard Rodriguez already has a save for Pittsburgh, but manager Derek Shelton has suggested he likes Rodriguez more as a setup man. Perhaps Crick eventually enters the ninth-inning picture.

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Could be back Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick (COVID-19 protocols) could rejoin the Pirates for Sunday's game against the Cubs, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

He has been away from the team following the birth of his child and continues to go through COVID-19 protocols, but it sounds like he could be back before the end of this opening series. Richard Rodriguez is the presumed closer in Pittsburgh, but it's a very fluid situation and Crick could work his way into the saves mix in short order if he throws enough strikes.

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Away from team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick has been away from the team following the birth of his child, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

Although Crick's absence was announced Thursday, he's been away from the team for several days. He's in the process of rejoining the Pirates, but he's currently on the COVID-19 injured list since he'll need to go through intake testing before he's cleared to return. It's unlikely that Crick will miss significant time to begin the season.

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Shuts down Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick threw an inning of scoreless relief Tuesday against Baltimore, allowing no hits and one walk while striking out a pair of batters, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

He's in the high-leverage situational mix with Richard Rodriguez, though manager Derek Shelton has not named a closer. "The fact that our guys continue to get better and execute pitches makes it a more viable conversation of how we use those leverage situations," Shelton said. After posting a 90.9 mph average fastball velocity in 2020, Crick has bumped his velocity back up to the 93 mph range. While he still has trouble commanding his pitches -- he threw only nine of 18 pitches for strikes Tuesday -- the 28-year-old might still become an option for saves in 2021.

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Ready to compete
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick is looking forward to a healthy 2021 after dealing with injuries over the last two seasons, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

His fastball velocity dipped from 95.3 mph in 2019 to just 90.9 mph in 2020. Crick, who suffered a season-ending lat strain last year, also dealt with the passing of his father and brother. While Richard Rodriguez currently serves as the frontrunner for ninth-inning duty, manager Derek Shelton has not yet named a closer. After a pair of difficult campaigns, Crick is looking forward to the challenge. "I'm embracing the competition," Crick said Friday. "We have a lot of good arms here. It should be a great competition. Richie was in the role at the end of last year, and rightfully so. Really, right now, it's gonna be a healthy competition."

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Signs one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick (lat) and the Pirates agreed to a one-year, $800,000 deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

Crick battled injuries throughout the 2020 season, throwing just 5.2 innings. It's unclear whether or not the lat strain that ended his season prematurely in mid-September will affect him heading into spring training.

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Heads to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with a lat strain, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

Crick will have a chance to return just before the regular season concludes, though the club has yet to release a timetable for his return. Mitch Keller was called up to take Crick's place and will start the second game of Monday's doubleheader against the Reds.

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Makes mound return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick (shoulder) allowed one hit in a scoreless inning against the Brewers on Sunday. He struck out one batter.

Pitching for the first time since July 27, Crick 's fastball sat at 90 mph. In 2019, he averaged 95.3 mph with his heater. On the positive side, the righty was able to throw his slider for strikes several times. Overall, he registered nines strikes on 12 pitches. Pittsburgh used him in the fourth inning Sunday, but he'll take on a more accustomed role in the later innings provided he continues to regain velocity.

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Reinstated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday.

Crick has been sidelined since the end of July while recovering from a right shoulder strain, but he'll rejoin the Pirates' bullpen. Keone Kela (forearm) is still on the injured list, so Crick could see some save opportunities while he's sidelined.

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Throws live BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick (shoulder) threw a live batting practice session Wednesday in Chicago and the early response is positive, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

He is traveling with the team, so it seems like he could be activated any day now. Keone Kela (forearm) hasn't thrown since Friday of last week, so the closing duties seem to be up for grabs at the moment.

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Will throw again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick (shoulder) will throw live batting practice Monday and accompany the team on its upcoming road trip, general manager Ben Cherington told 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Speaking on his weekly radio show, Cherington said that the team's medical staff will see how Crick feels Tuesday after his Monday session. If the right-hander reports no problems, he could be activated as soon as Wednesday,

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Tosses live BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick (shoulder) threw live batting practice, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

This is a step in the right direction for Crick, who has been sidelined all month with a strained right shoulder. The right-hander is scheduled to throw another live BP session later in the week before being reassessed.

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Making progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick (shoulder) completed a bullpen session Tuesday without suffering any setbacks, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

Manager Derek Shelton said the session "went well" but offered no guidance as to a possible return date. Crick struggled in his only two outings of 2020, allowing three hits, one walk and four unearned runs in one inning. Depending on how well he looks when he returns, he could slot back into a high-leverage role given the team's lack of alternatives.

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Begins throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick (shoulder) was cleared to resume a throwing program Wednesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Assuming he steers clear of any setbacks with his strained right shoulder/lat during his throwing program, Crick will likely need at least a week to ramp up before the Pirates consider activating him from the 10-day injured list. Crick is expected to fill a key late-inning role for the Pirates once he's healthy again, but he may not get a look in save situations if Keone Kela (COVID-19) beats him back from the IL.

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Making progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick (shoulder) is feeling better and "doing work" at PNC Park, general manager Ben Cherington told 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Despite the encouraging news, the team doesn't have clarity on when he might return to pitch. With the emergence of Nick Burdi and the improving health of Keone Kela, Crick will likely move back into an eighth-inning role whenever he's activated.

Pirates' Kyle Crick: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crick was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a right shoulder strain, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Crick's velocity was down to begin the season, and the injury designation could help provide a reason why. In two appearances to begin the season, the right-hander allowed four unearned runs on three hits and one walk while striking out two over one inning. He'll be sidelined at least 10 days as he deals with the issue in his throwing shoulder. Geoff Hartlieb and Miguel Del Pozo were both recalled in corresponding moves.
