Marlins non-tendered RHP Aaron Crow.

Crow is recovering from Tommy John surgery, having undergone the procedure on April 8 to repair a UCL tear in his right elbow. He likely won't be ready to pitch until the 2016 campaign is well underway. As he's been non-tendered, the 29-year-old right-hander becomes a free agent.

An MRI on Aaron Crow's elbow revealed a tear that will likely result in Tommy John surgery.

Crow pitched eight innings for the Marlins in Spring Training before he was shut down with the arm injury. The pitcher was acquired from the Royals over the off-season. In 2014, he posted a 4.12 ERA and a 1.288 WHIP over 59 relief innings. Assuming Tommy John, he'll miss the entirety of the 2015 season.

Marlins and RHP Aaron Crow avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.975 million contract.

Crow was in his second year of arbitration eligibility. Acquired via trade from the Royals this offseason, the right-hander will pitch in middle relief for the Marlins.

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.

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.
