Pirates' Wil Crowe: Pitches into sixth inning Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Wil Crowe: Fans four in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe allowed two runs on six hits and a pair of walks in 4.2 innings, striking out four and not factoring into the decision of Wednesday's 14-3 loss to Atlanta.

The righty has now allowed two runs in four of his last five starts and has an ERA of 6.05 in 2021. Crowe has failed to provide significant length in his starts this season, completing six innings just once in twelve outings. Steven Brault (lat) may usurp Crowe in the rotation once healthy, but he isn't expected back until the end of July, meaning the latter will likely remain in the starting mix following the All-Star break.

Pirates' Wil Crowe: Takes loss despite fanning six
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe (1-5) was tagged with the loss Thursday against the Brewers after allowing two runs on four hits and three walks while fanning six across 4.2 innings.

Crowe ended just two strikeouts away from matching his season-high mark, and he gave up just two runs for the third time over his last four outings. However, he hasn't pitched more than five innings in any of those contests. While his 6.26 ERA remains poor, he seems to be moving in the right direction as he owns a 4.66 ERA with a 8.4 K/9 over that aforementioned four-game span. He's slated to pitch again next week against Atlanta at home.

Pirates' Wil Crowe: Notches first big-league win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe (1-4) earned the win over St. Louis on Friday, pitching five innings and allowing four runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out four.

The right-hander was far from dominant in the start, as he induced only eight swinging strikes and allowed four extra-base hits (including two homers) over five frames. However, he fared just well enough to collect his first career win in his 14th appearance. Crowe was 0-2 in three starts last season, and he entered Friday with an 0-4 record and a 6.42 ERA across 40.2 innings in 2021, so he hasn't yet proven that he's capable of handling big-league hitters. He's in line to make his next start at Colorado next week.

Pirates' Wil Crowe: No-decision Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe didn't factor into the decision Saturday against Cleveland after allowing two runs on four hits and two walks while fanning two across 4.2 innings.

Crowe got off to a slow start this season, but he has been turning things around of late, having given up two runs in each of his last two outings covering 9.2 innings. While he can't be trusted to pitch deep into games, he's been tossing the ball better compared to May, when he finished with a 6.04 ERA across five starts. Crowe is tabbed to make his next start on the road against the Cardinals next week.

Pirates' Wil Crowe: Gets another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe is slated to start Saturday's game against Cleveland.

Crowe will be rewarded with a second straight turn through the rotation after he struck out a career-high eight over five innings while not factoring into the decision in a June 13 loss to the Brewers. With Mitch Keller back in the minors and Trevor Cahill (calf) recently returning to the injured list, Crowe could be in store for additional starts beyond Saturday's. The 26-year-old righty has struggled on the whole this season, posting a 6.75 ERA and 1.61 WHIP across nine outings (eight starts).

Pirates' Wil Crowe: Fans eight in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe allowed two runs on two hits and a walk over five innings in Sunday's loss to the Brewers. He struck out eight and did not factor in the decision.

After allowing an RBI double to Daniel Vogelbach in the first inning, Crowe settled in for a solid outing. He later walked the leadoff batter in the sixth inning and was charged with a run when that batter scored against David Bednar. The 26-year-old struck out a career-high eight batters and allowed fewer than three runs in an outing for the first time since May 8. Crowe now owns a 6.75 ERA and 36:18 K:BB in nine appearances this season.

Pirates' Wil Crowe: Gets Sunday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe will start Sunday's series finale against the Brewers, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

Crowe will take over the rotation spot vacated by Mitch Keller, who was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday. The Pirates brought up Crowe in a corresponding move, and after he went unused out of the bullpen in Saturday's loss to the Brewers, he'll now get the chance to pick up his eighth start of the season. Fantasy managers should temper expectations for Crowe after he posted a 7.26 ERA and 1.77 WHIP in 31 innings with the Pirates prior to being demoted to Triple-A for a brief spell.

June 13, 2021 02:28 PM
Pirates' Wil Crowe: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday.

He didn't fare well in 31 innings with the big club earlier this year (7.26 ERA, 1.77 WHIP), and he logged a single clean inning in his lone appearance at Triple-A on June 8. Typically a starter by trade, perhaps the Pirates are transitioning him into a relief role. However, Mitch Keller was optioned Saturday, so there is a vacant spot in the rotation.

Pirates' Wil Crowe: Headed to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates optioned Crowe to Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Crowe's demotion comes as little surprise after he was lit up for 11 earned runs on 13 hits and four walks in 5.1 innings between his last two starts. Chase De Jong will temporarily take over Crowe's spot as Pittsburgh's No. 5 starter, but he may only be keeping a spot warm in the rotation for Trevor Cahill (calf), who could return from the injured list within the next week or two.

Pirates' Wil Crowe: Implodes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe (0-4) was charged with the loss Tuesday against the Royals after surrendering eight runs on eight hits and a pair of walks while striking out three across four innings.

Crowe started off strong, holding the Royals to a single run over the first three innings. It was all downhill from there, starting with a two-run homer by Salvador Perez in the fourth. After loading up the bases with no outs in the fifth, Crowe remained in the game to face one more batter and served up a first-pitch grand slam to Andrew Benintendi. The right-hander, who was lifted after 1.1 innings in his last start, has given up 15 runs in his last 10.1 frames and remains winless on the season.

Pirates' Wil Crowe: Only lasts 1.1 innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe (0-3) was tagged with the loss Wednesday against the Cubs after giving up three runs on five hits and two walks while fanning one across 1.1 innings.

Crowe remains winless this season and delivered his worst start of the campaign, failing to get out of the second inning while giving up more walks than strikeouts. He has struggled to the tune of a 6.04 ERA with a 1.61 WHIP across 22.1 innings in five starts this month, and his next outing is scheduled for next Monday against the Royals on the road.

Pirates' Wil Crowe: Struggles in start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe allowed four earned runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out seven across five innings in Thursday's win over Atlanta. He did not factor into the decision.

Crowe gave up a season-high four runs, allowing long balls to William Contreras and Dansby Swanson. It was the first outing Crowe surrendered multiple home runs. However, he did have a season-high seven punchouts. The 26-year-old has a 4.91 ERA and 1.48 WHIP in 25.2 innings. He has totaled just 34 big-league innings in his career.

Pirates' Wil Crowe: Takes loss Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe (0-2) was tagged with the loss Thursday against the Giants after giving up three runs on six hits and a walk while fanning five across five innings.

Crowe has recorded a season-high five strikeouts in each of his last two contests. He owns a 4.35 ERA and 17:10 K:BB across 20.2 innings to date.

Pirates' Wil Crowe: No-decision in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe allowed two runs on four hits and a walk over six innings during Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Cubs. He had five strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.

The 26-year-old surrendered a run on a bases-loaded hit by pitch during the first inning and a second run on a sacrifice fly during the fourth as he held the Cubs without an extra-base hit. Crowe tentatively lines up for another start Thursday against the Giants, though he could shift to the bullpen if Chad Kuhl (shoulder) is cleared to return from the injured list.

Pirates' Wil Crowe: Charged with first loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe (0-1) allowed three runs on three hits and four walks while striking out two in five innings to take the loss against the Cardinals on Sunday.

Crowe was sharp in his first start of the season April 25 but had to settle for a no-decision. The right-hander was relatively effective again Sunday, but he gave up a three-run homer in the second inning. Crowe was unable to get any run support from the Pirates and was charged with his first loss of the year. He's now posted a 4.66 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in 9.2 innings across three appearances (two starts) in 2021. Crowe tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against the Cubs on Saturday.

Pirates' Wil Crowe: No-decision versus Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe allowed one run on four hits and two walks with three strikeouts over four innings in a no-decision versus the Twins on Sunday.

Crowe was effective in his first start of the season. Byron Buxton's RBI single in the first inning accounted for the only run on Crowe's line. The 26-year-old right-hander has given up two runs on five hits and four walks over 4.2 innings this season. He's added five strikeouts. The Pirates have days off Monday and Thursday, so they won't need a fifth starter for a while. As such, Crowe could end up in the bullpen after his spot start Sunday.

April 24, 2021 06:28 PM
Pirates' Wil Crowe: Starting Sunday in Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe will be called up to start Sunday's game against the Twins.

Crowe made a single brief relief appearance early this season before being sent to the minors. Combined with his three short starts from last year, he's now thrown nine major-league innings, giving up 12 earned runs on 15 hits and 10 walks.

Pirates' Wil Crowe: Optioned down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe was optioned to the Pirates' alternate site Sunday.

The team needed a spot for Kyle Crick (COVID-19 protocols), and Crowe was the roster casualty. Crowe was wild in his Pirates debut Saturday, issuing two walks and uncorking two wild pitches in just two-thirds of an inning against the Cubs.

Pirates' Wil Crowe: Works well Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe limited Boston to one earned run in 3.2 innings Sunday, allowing four hits and a walk while striking out two, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

The start was Crowe's first of the spring after three relief outings. He's given up just one run in 9.1 innings as the team considers whether the righty fits on the Opening Day roster. "He's done a nice job," manager Derek Shelton said before the game. "I think it's continuing to get more looks and continue to see more innings, so gain more information." The 26-year-old, acquired in the Josh Bell deal, is likely fighting a crowded roster but figures to find his way onto the roster sometime this summer. Crowe made his debut with Washington in 2020, registering an 11.88 ERA in 8.1 innings.
