He tied Luca Panerati and Adrian Rosario for third in the Pioneer League in losses. In 2010, he was 3-7 with a 4.26 ERA for the Dayton Dragons. Crabbe picked it up a notch in 2011, pitching for Dayton (2-2, 3.65 in 8 G) and the Bakersfield Blaze (5-5, 3.41 in 21 G). Overall, he struck out 148 in 135 2/3 IP.
