Theo Epstein has resigned as the Cubs president of baseball operations.
Epstein stepped down as president of baseball operations Tuesday, the move is effective November 20th. Jed Hoyer was named as Epstein’s successor. Theo reportedly intends to take the 2021 season off and is not resigning to pursue a position with the Phillies/Mets. Epstein will leave the Cubs after nine seasons, but helped the Cubs win a World Series Championship in 2016. “Next summer will be my first in 30 years not clocking into work everyday at a major league ballpark,” said Epstein. “I do plan on having a third chapter leading a baseball organization someday, though I do not expect it to be next year.”
Miami Marlins right hander Aaron Crow will have Tommy John Surgery performed in New York on Wednesday. The surgery will be performed by Dr. David Altchek.
Crow was acquired from Kansas City in the offseason and was likely going to work in middle relief for the Marlins. He will miss all of 2015 and likely some of 2016 as well. Crow was a somewhat interesting piece years ago, but can now be ignored in all fantasy formats.
Miami Marlins right handed pitcher Aaron Crow was officially placed on the disabled list, retroactive to March 29th.
Crow tore his UCL during Spring Training and will undergo Tommy John Surgery and miss the entire 2015 season. He was acquired in the offseason from the Kansas City Royals for a pair of minor league arms.
Recently acquired Miami Marlins pitcher Aaron Crow tore his UCL and will undergo Tommy John Surgery, ending his 2015 season.
Crow was acquired in the offseason by the Marlins from the Royals and was expected to play a role in the bullpen this season. He had been solid in Grapefruit League play, but his absence shouldn't make too much of a difference on the Marlins or in fantasy leagues. Sam Dyson will take his place on the 25-man roster.
Miami Marlins relief pitcher Aaron Crow gave up only one hit in one inning, striking out two.
Crow is a favorite for a middle relief spot in the Marlins' bullpen. He will likely be far behind in line for saves or even significant innings, but he has always had plenty of upside and could provide strikeouts. He likely should not be drafted in any leagues, but could be worth keeping an eye on in deep NL-only leagues.
