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.

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.

Pirates' Wil Crowe: Dealt to Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe was traded from the Nationals to the Pirates on Thursday in exchange for first baseman Josh Bell, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Crowe was shuffled between the Nationals' active roster and the alternate training site in 2020, but he'll attempt to carve out more consistent time in the majors with the Pirates. The right-hander has struggled against upper-level talent, including an 11.88 ERA and 8:8 K:BB over 8.1 innings during three starts in his first taste of major-league action in 2020. Crowe could attempt to earn a spot as a back-end starter in Pittsburgh's rotation in 2021.

Nationals' Wil Crowe: Back with parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals recalled Crowe from their alternate training site Wednesday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

Crowe was optioned to the alternate site following the conclusion of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Phillies, but he'll be eligible to rejoin the big club a day later after the Nationals placed third baseman Carter Kieboom (wrist) on the 10-day injured list. The right-hander is expected to serve as a long-relief option for Washington over the final five games of the regular season.

Nationals' Wil Crowe: Sent to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals optioned Crowe to their alternate training site Wednesday.

Washington brought Crowe up from the alternate site to serve as its 29th man for Tuesday's doubleheader with the Phillies, but he wasn't needed out of the bullpen in either game. Unless the Nationals place another player on the injured list before their season finale Sunday, Crowe won't return to the big club and will finish the 2020 campaign with an 11.88 ERA and 2.64 WHIP over 8.1 innings.

Nationals' Wil Crowe: Back up for another twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe will serve as the 29th man for Tuesday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Crowe has spent three separate stints on the Nationals' roster this season. The latest lasted just one day, as he joined the team to start the nightcap of Friday's doubleheader against the Marlins before being optioned the following day. He threw just 2.1 innings in that game, so he should be available for multiple innings if needed out of the bullpen Tuesday.

Nationals' Wil Crowe: Charged with loss against Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe (0-2) allowed six runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three over 2.1 innings as he was charged with the loss in Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against the Marlins.

Crowe joined the major-league club to make a spot start during Friday's nightcap, but he struggled early in the contest as he allowed runs in each of the first three innings prior to his removal. The right-hander hasn't been very effective in his first taste of major-league action as he now carries an 11.88 ERA and 8:8 K:BB over 8.1 innings during three starts. It's unclear whether Crowe will appear in the majors again in 2020.

Nationals' Wil Crowe: Starting Friday's nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe will be recalled to start Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against the Marlins, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

The 26-year-old has made two spot starts for the Nationals this season and will make another one as the 29th man for Friday's twin bill. Crowe has allowed five runs on 10 hits with a 5:6 K:BB over six innings across his first two big-league outings.

Nationals' Wil Crowe: Likely getting start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe is expected to be recalled from the Nationals' alternate training site to start one game of Friday's doubleheader with the Marlins, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Friday will begin a stretch of three doubleheaders in five days for the Nationals, who will have to add a few new members to the rotation to account for the heavy schedule. Crowe is a logical choice to fill one of the openings, as he's already made two sport starts for the big club this season. He wasn't effective in either outing, giving up a combined seven runs (five earned) on 10 hits and six walks over six innings.

Nationals' Wil Crowe: Sent back to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals optioned Crowe to their alternate training site Saturday.

After serving as Washington's 29th man in Friday's doubleheader with the Braves, Crowe was predictably sent back to the alternate site when the Nationals reduced their roster to 28 ahead of Saturday's contest. Crowe started the second game of the twin bill, working 2.1 innings and giving up three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out three in a 10-9 victory, though he didn't factor into the decision.

Nationals' Wil Crowe: Early exit in Friday's nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe didn't factor into the decision in the second game of Friday's doubleheader, allowing three runs on four hits and four walks over 2.1 innings. He struck out three.

The right-hander has had a rocky introduction to the majors, posting a 5:6 K:BB and serving up three homers in his first six innings to saddle him with a 7.50 ERA and 2.67 WHIP. The Nats aren't getting anything from the back of their rotation right now, but Crowe doesn't appear to be a solution to the problem.

Nationals' Wil Crowe: Starting Game 2 on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe will start Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against Atlanta, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

The rookie right-hander gave up four runs (two earned) while striking out two in 3.2 innings against the Marlins in his lone big-league appearance Aug. 22. He probably isn't ready to have any sort of sustained success in the big-league rotation, but the Nationals don't have many viable alternatives.

Nationals' Wil Crowe: Dispatched to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals optioned Crowe to their alternate training site Sunday.

Washington summoned Crowe from the alternate site to make his MLB debut in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader with the Marlins. He lasted just 3.2 innings in the outing, taking the loss while giving up four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out two. Since he was serving as the Nats' 29th man in the twin bill, Crowe was never expected to stick around with the big club beyond Saturday, but he looks like he'll be the next man up to start if Washington requires another rotation member at some point.

Nationals' Wil Crowe: Shaky big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe (0-1) took the loss in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader, giving up four runs on six hits and two walks over 3.2 innings as the Nationals were downed 5-3 by the Marlins. He struck out two.

Making his big-league debut, the right-hander had trouble locating his pitches and threw only 34 of 64 pitches for strikes before getting the hook. With Sixto Sanchez having more success in his MLB debut for Miami, Crowe was saddled with the loss. It's not clear whether he'll remain with the Nats as a long reliever or swing man or be sent back to the team's alternate training site, but he didn't make a strong case for sticking around.

August 22, 2020 02:20 PM
Nationals' Wil Crowe: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe had his contract purchased by the Nationals and will start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Marlins, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

Crowe was called up Saturday after the Nationals' announced they were placing Stephen Strasburg (hand) on the 60-day injured list. Saturday's start may just be spot start for Crowe as the team has the option to send him back down to their alternate training site after his outing or they could keep him and opt to send someone else down.

Nationals' Wil Crowe: Reports to camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe (undisclosed) reported to Nationals camp Sunday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Crowe wasn't in camp for the first several weeks while quarantining at his offseason home, but he was able to participate in workouts at the team's alternate training site Sunday, signaling that he cleared intake testing. The right-hander figures to work primarily with the squad at the alternate training site this season after posting a 6.17 ERA and 1.70 WHIP over 54 innings with Triple-A Fresno in 2019.

July 16, 2020 10:52 PM
Nationals' Wil Crowe: Absent from team workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowe has been absent from team workouts since they began July 3, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Crowe is supposed to be training in Washington, as he was not listed on the roster sent to High-A Fredericksburg earlier this month. The 25-year-old struggled in Triple-A last season, posting a 6.17 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 41:26 K:BB in 54 innings for Fresno.
