Crowe will join the Angels’ Triple-A affiliate, according to Eddy.
The Indians selected Crowe in the first round, 14th overall, of the 2005 MLB Draft. Once considered one of the game’s top prospects, Crowe made his major league debut with the Indians in 2009 when he posted an OPS of .611 over his 183 at-bats.
Crowe’s most extensive stretch with the club came the next season, when he tallied 24 doubles and two home runs over his 442 at-bats, good for an OPS of .634. Crowe then missed most of the 2011 season due to a shoulder injury.
The 28-year-old had yet to appear for the Indians this season, spending the first half of the year between Double- and Triple-A. Over his 151 at-bats Crowe maintained an OPS of .723. He owns a career minor league OPS of .751.
What are your expectations of Crowe going forward?
