Crowe attended Westview High School, and was selected by the Oakland Athletics in the 20th round of the 2002 Major League Baseball Draft. Crowe did not sign with the Athletics, instead enrolled at the University of Arizona, where he played college baseball for the Arizona Wildcats baseball team. In 2003, he played collegiate summer baseball in the Cape Cod Baseball League for the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox, and was the starting left-fielder for the East division in the league's annual all-star game. Crowe was named the 2005 Pac-10 Conference Co-Player of the Year, with Jacoby Ellsbury.
The Cleveland Indians selected Crowe in the first round, with the 14th overall selection, in the 2005 Major League Baseball Draft. Crowe was named to the 2006 Carolina League All-Star game, but was unable to participate due to injury. He started the 2007 season as the Akron Aeros starting center fielder. After an unsuccessful experiment at second base beginning in late August 2006, Crowe was moved permanently back to the outfield, rotating between all three outfield positions.
Crowe started as the right fielder for the Indians in his MLB debut on April 9, 2009 against the Texas Rangers at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Crowe went 0-for-5 including one strikeout.
