2021 Fantasy Outlook
Crowe simply wasn't effective in any of his three starts during the 2020 campaign, allowing 11 runs over 8.1 innings (11.88 ERA). He walked just as many batters as he struck out (eight) and was hit with two losses as a result. To be fair, this was the right-hander's first big-league experience, but he'll need to show improvement quickly to remain in the majors. Crowe was traded from the Nationals to the Pirates after the 2020 season, where he should have a better chance of carving out a relief role. The 26-year-old figures to sit near the front end of the bullpen to kick off the season, but could unquestionably earn mid-to-high-leverage chances amongst a group of unproven bullpen arms.

Excellent in last start of 2021
PPittsburgh Pirates
October 1, 2021
Crowe pitched six shutout innings in a no-decision versus Cincinnati on Friday. He allowed just one hit and two walks with nine strikeouts.
ANALYSIS
The right-hander saved his best start of the year for last. The three baserunners he allowed was the lowest total in his 26 appearances, while the nine strikeouts matched a season high. Crowe typically didn't have that much success in 2021, posting a 5.48 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 111:57 K:BB across 116.2 innings. He finishes the season with a 4-8 record, while a 4.4 BB/9 and a 1.9 HR/9 can explain most of his overall poor ratios.
