The Boston Red Sox reportedly were willing to trade Ramirez for Crowe, Adam Miller and Fausto Carmona. They are the top three prospects in the Indians minor-league system.
“My agent called me and told me that,” Crowe said. “I told him, ‘Just let me go get ready for the season.’ ”
The deal never happened because Indians General Manager Mark Shapiro felt the cost was too high. Crowe now is preparing for spring training in February, where he will attend camp with the big-leaguers. He’s in Cleveland now working out in the team’s winter development program
