Royals not worried about Aaron Crow's reduced velocity


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) Royals pitcher Aaron Crow has averaged 92 mph with his fastball this season, well down from his career average of 94.6 mph, but the team isn't concerned with the reduced velocity, the Kansas City Star reports.

"His velocity is down two or three miles an hour," manager Ned Yost said. "But it’s early in the year, and he’s still building up arm strength. They’re still getting their arms underneath them, if you will."

"I feel fine," Crow said. "I think I’ve learned over the last few years, I mean, it’s great when Greg [Holland] can go out there and blow guys away with 96, 97. But there’s times when I was throwing 95, 96, and it just seems like guys pick it up earlier or something. It didn’t have the same ride on it at the end. I think I’ve been more successful when I’m trying to throw sinkers. Instead of trying to blow it by them."

Crow has yet to allow an earned run in seven innings over nine appearances, striking out four and walking three while surrendering two unearned runs.

Rockies interested in Aaron Crow


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) The Rockies are looking for another bullpen arm and have interest in Royals relief pitcher Aaron Crow, the Denver Post reports.

The Rockies were previously considering offering Dexter Fowler to the Royals in exchange for one of the team's relievers but wound up shipping him to Houston instead. Crow went 7-5 wtih a 3.38 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 44:22 K:BB ratio in 48 innings last season.


Dexter Fowler being dangled for Royals relievers


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2:14 pm ET) The Rockies may consider dealing outfielder Dexter Fowler for Royals relief pitchers, according to the Kansas City Star.

The team is considering Aaron Crow or Tim Collins. Fowler hit .263/.369/.407 in 415 at-bats. Crow had a 3.38 ERA in 48 innings. Collins had a 3.54 ERA in 53 1/3 innings.


Royals open to trading top relievers


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(11/25/2013) The Kansas City Star reports that the Royals will listen to trade offers for any of their relievers, including closer Greg Holland. Though the team is reportedly looking for ways to limit their payroll, they are unlikely to trade Holland, but setup men Tim Collins and Aaron Crow are much more readily available.

Collins led the Royals with 21 holds, and he notched a 3.54 ERA and 52 strikeouts in 53 1/3 innings.

Crow, a one-time starting pitching prospect, registered a 3.38 ERA, 19 holds and 44 strikeouts in 48 innings.


Stash Kelvin Herrera, not Aaron Crow


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/9/2013) Aaron Crow may have closed out the Royals' 3-1 win over the Twins Monday, but manager Ned Yost made a point to say it was only because closer Greg Holland and setup man Kelvin Herrera were unavailable, which seems to imply that Herrera is the backup option for saves in Kansas City.

That's worth noting because, in case you haven't noticed, closer Greg Holland has been pretty shaky, blowing a save one day and getting pulled from a save opportunity the next. It's also not too surprising considering the buzz this offseason that Herrera might be a better choice to close than Holland.

If you're looking for a sleeper for saves in the Royals' bullpen, Herrera is the reliever to stash.


Aaron Crow called on for save


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2013) Royals relief pitcher Aaron Crow was asked the get the final outs of Monday's home-opening win over the Twins. With Greg Holland, who remains the team's closer, having pitched in two straight games, manager Ned Yost turned to Crow. 

Unlike Holland in recent games, Crow didn't have too much trouble getting the job done for his second career save. The only base runner he allowed came via the walk and he added a strikeout to secure the win. Crow needed 16 pitches and 10 went for strikes. 

The 26-year-old Crow has already appeared in four games for the Royals and has allowed just two hits and a walk with three strikeouts over four scoreless innings. He'll go back to his job as a middle reliever going forward. 


Royals using Aaron Crow in seventh inning


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2013) Royals reliever Aaron Crow has opened the year with three scoreless outings. Crow has allowed two hits and no walks in three innings, while striking out two.

Crow also has two holds. All three of his appearances have come in the seventh inning.


Crow's career takes detour


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2013) The Kansas City Star reports when the Royals drafted Aaron Crow with the 12th overall pick in the 2009 draft, they envisioned him one day being a cornerstone in the rotation. When he was shifted to a reliever in 2011, it was viewed as little more than an acclimation process to the majors. Well, a few years later it seems Crow's destined to be a major-league reliever. “We have five, six, eight or nine guys who are starters,” manager Ned Yost said. “There is no need to move Aaron Crow out of the bullpen. Plus, he fills such a big role there that it’s hard to think about moving him. He’s a guy who I trust to come into a game in a tight situation and get us out of it. Those guys are hard to find." Crow seems fine with the permanent move. “I’ve been a reliever the last two years,” he said, “and I’m going to be one again this year. So that’s really all that I’m focused on."
