In what role? He started all season. Can't imagine using him out of the pen.

Outside of September callups, he's probably 8th on the depth chart.

Probably just September. I'd rather see him than guys like McGowin, Williams, or Voth in a spot-start role, but I'm biased. He's only a starter so probably September call-up. He's already 24 and an accomplished college pitcher so they should be aggressive with him.

probably our next call-up if a starter goes down and Hellickson isn't ready to return, particularly since Voth hasn't been very good at Fresno (4.11 ERA in his last 10 starts).

Fair enough

Joe Ross is getting stretched out as a starter. Unless someone goes down in the next week or so, he's next up on the block. Also McGowin is probably going to get a start before Crowe.

Yea. I just don't think Crowe's game is going to translate well right away.

If he maintains those numbers in the PCL he's ready to come up.

nobody has those numbers in the PCL :lol:

Seems like he was both lucky and unlucky in AA.  A WHIP of 1.12 and only 2 HRs over 95 innings, plus nearly a K per inning, would make you think his ERA should have been lower, but I can't believe the 2 HRs isn't lucky.

2 HR definitely seems extreme, but I believe he profiles as a classic #4/5 starter who pounds the ball into the dirt, and he's super experienced for a AA prospect, so maybe not that unlucky, but I'm just guessing.
