After beginning his rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis this past Friday, it was reported by New York Post columnist Jon Heyman that the Pirates have DFA’ed right-handed pitcher Wil Crowe.
The 28-year-old starter turned relief pitcher has been on the injured list since April 26 with Right Shoulder discomfort.
Before landing on the injured list, Crowe appeared in five games working 9.2 innings allowing nine hits five runs one home run walking nine while posting a 4.66 ERA.
Crowe was traded from the Nationals to Pittsburgh in December 2020 for Josh after his rookie campaign with Washington. He spent three seasons with the Pirates with one full season as a starter and a full season as a reliever.
Throughout those three seasons, Crowe posted a record of 10-19 appearing in 91 games starting 26 games, throwing just over 200 innings and posting a 5.03 ERA with Pittsburgh.
