Aaron Crow RP KC 3 Months

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.

Aaron Crow worked a scoreless ninth inning Friday against the Indians for his second save of the season.

Crow worked around a one-out leadoff double from Yan Gomes to finish off the win. Greg Holland was unavailable Friday after pitching the previous three days, but he should be good to go for Saturday.

Royals and RHP Aaron Crow avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.475 million contract.

He can earn an additional $50,000 if he makes the All-Star team. The two sides wound up settling just below the midpoint of figures exchanged earlier this month. Crow posted a 3.38 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 44/22 K/BB ratio in 48 innings for the Royals last season.

Aaron Crow requested $1.7 million and was offered $1.28 million from the Royals when arbitration figures were exchanged on Friday.

With the two sides as close as they are, they should be able to strike a deal someplace in the middle of the two figures. The 27-year-old posted a 3.38 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 44/22 K/BB ratio in 48 innings while earning $1.28 million in 2013.

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.

Aaron Crow has registered a 1.08 ERA and 0.96 WHIP in 8 1/3 innings this year out of the Royals bullpen.

Crow yielded his first run of the season on May 5, when White Sox outfielder Alex Rios took him deep. The 26-year-old right-hander boasts a solid 3.00 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 9.0 K/9 through 135 career major league innings.

With both Greg Holland and Kelvin Herrera unavailable, Aaron Crow closed out Monday's win over the Twins with a scoreless ninth.

Crow issued a one-out walk but then induced a double-play ball to end it. He's third in line for saves in Kansas City, but obviously Herrera will get the first crack at the job should manager Ned Yost make a move.

Royals manager Ned Yost said that Aaron Crow will be used if a save situation arises Monday against the Astros.

Jonathan Broxton threw 29 pitches over two innings Sunday against the Cardinals, so Yost would like to stay away from using him. Yost is also considering using him as a pinch-hitter under National League rules. Greg Holland and Tim Collins are also unavailable Monday and could be used as emergency outfielders.
