In the shortest press release I’ve ever seen, the Indians today released AAA outfielder Trevor Crowe.
“Columbus transaction: OF TREVOR CROWE was released.”
Crowe was the Indians 1st round pick in the 2005 draft. He was the 14th overall pick. Crowe played 205 games for the Indians (bet you could make some money off that stat) and had a lifetime .245 average with 3 home runs, and 29 stolen bases over three season for the Tribe.
Does it make sense to release a player this close to the trade deadline? Then again, Crowe probably wasn’t on many teams’ radar.
