Crow is competing to earn the final spot in the Marlins' bullpen, MLB.com reports.

Coming off of a down 2014 season with the Royals, Crow has looked solid in limited Grapefruit League action, allowing a pair of runs over five innings with six strikeouts and two walks. Thanks to an influx of major league arms this offseason, the Marlins will be forced to make some tough decisions as the set their Opening Day bullpen. Crow's solid work in camp and steady track record give him an edge over the likes of Carter Capps, Sam Dyson, Nick Masset and Andrew McKirahan who could all be competing for just one roster spot.

Crow was optioned to Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Wednesday.

Crow has been hammered in three of his past four appearances, allowing six runs on seven hits and one walk to go with one strikeout in 3.1 innings. Although he's been the weak link of an otherwise stellar bullpen, he'll likely return to the Royals once rosters expand in September.

Troy Renck of the Denver Post says the Rockies are looking for another bullpen arm and have some interest in Aaron Crow.

Crow had a down season but has a 3.19 ERA and a K/9 just under 9.0 for his career. The Rockies signed LaTroy Hawkins to be their closer in 2014, but the 27-year-old Crow would give them a strong back-end of the bullpen along with Rex Brothers. Crow is first-time arbitration eligible this winter.

Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star reports that the Royals are shopping Aaron Crow and Tim Collins.

Collins and Crow are each entering their first year of salary arbitration and the Royals want to see what kind of package can be fetched before the talented young relievers get expensive. Kansas City has good bullpen depth, and getting a starting pitcher or some offense in return would be the goal. Crow, 27, posted a 3.38 ERA and 44/22 K/BB ratio in 48 innings this year. Collins, 24, had a 3.54 ERA.
