Crow (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Crow's diagnosis of a partially torn UCL in his right elbow made Tommy John a virtual certainty, and he now has a set date for the procedure. The 28-year-old right-hander made at least 57 appearances in each of the last four years for Kansas City, posting a combined 3.43 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 8.0 K/9, but will have to wait until 2016 to step back on a major league mound.

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 pitched a scoreless ninth inning for his third save of the season Tuesday against the Rangers.

He was only used because Greg Holland and Kelvin Herrera were both unavailable after pitching in three straight games, so this doesn't warrant waiver wire action.

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.
