Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said Friday that the team could give the newly acquired Aaron Crow a chance to start.

Crow has pitched exclusively in relief in the majors, but he came up through the minors as a starter. Ultimately, the Marlins are just keeping their options open and Crow seems likely to remain a reliever. "We know he has started," said Hill. "It’s still early in the offseason and we’re not sure how the rest of the offseason will unfold in terms of what else we add to our pitching staff, but we love the flexibility. We love the thought he could possibly be a starting option for us, but at a minimum we know he’ll be a valuable bullpen piece and just add to the overall depth of our staff."

Marlins acquired RHP Aaron Crow from the Royals in exchange for LHP Brian Flynn and RHP Reid Redman.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal first reported the deal, and it's now been made official. Crow was an All-Star in his rookie season back in 2011, but his stuff and results have declined steadily since then. He held a 4.12 ERA with just 34 strikeouts over 59 innings in 2014 and could have been facing a non-tender this winter with another raise via arbitration coming. The Marlins will hope the 28-year-old can rediscover his stuff in the National League.

Aaron Crow earned a rare save in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

With Wade Davis and Greg Holland having pitched on each of the previous three days, Crow got the call to protect the Royals' one-run lead. He responded by disposing of the bottom of the Rangers' order with little consternation, with only a Rougned Odor single allowed in the inning. The save was Crow's third of the season, but he's not a source for more than the occasional opportunity when both Holland and Davis are indisposed.

Royals recalled RHP Aaron Crow from Triple-A Omaha.

Crow was sent down last week, but he wasn't expected to remain in the minors for long. The 27-year-old owns a 3.86 ERA and 29/20 K/BB ratio over 51 1/3 innings this season.

Royals optioned RHP Aaron Crow to Triple-A Omaha.

He'll be back next week when rosters expand. Liam Hendriks, who is making a spot start Wednesday, is taking Crow's spot on the roster.

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 and 52/28 K/BB ratio in 53 1/3 frames.

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 righty 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.

The Royals could again stretch out Aaron Crow next spring for a possible move into the rotation.

The Royals are pondering which relievers could make the transition from the bullpen to the rotation, and Crow is an obvious candidate. Also under consideration are Everett Teaford, Kelvin Herrera and Tim Collins, who is the only one of the group with no starting experience. "I think (Crow) probably, right now, projects better as a reliever," manager Ned Yost said. "But that doesn’t mean we won’t look at him as a starter. We’re looking at everything, but we have to see what happens over the winter. What if we get two (new) pitchers? What if we get no pitchers? What if we get four pitchers? Again, it’s all talk right now."

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.
