Not that he was all that likely to pitch anyway.

Royals setup man and unlikely AL All-Star Aaron Crow fell ill after arriving in Phoenix on Sunday and is probably won’t be pitch during tonight’s game.

“It’s either (strep throat) or a sinus infection,” Crow said. “(The doctor) gave me some medicine and I’m feeling a lot better.”

Despite the illness, Crow will be in uniform tonight.  After talking with AL coaches, it was decided that he’d only pitch if the game goes into extra innings.

He is expected to be ready to go when the Royals’ season resumed on Thursday.
