He reached the majors in 1980 with the Boston Red Sox, spending seven years with them before moving to the Kansas City Royals (1989-91). His most productive season came in 1985 with the Red Sox, when he set career-numbers in wins (6), saves (12), strikeouts (58) and innings pitched (91.0). During the 1986 postseason, he went 2-0 including a win in Game 2 of the World Series.He also had three decent years with Kansas City, winning 11 games and averaging 60.0 innings of work in each season.

In a 10-season career, Crawford posted a 30-23 record with 19 saves and a 4.17 ERA in 277 games, including 16 starts, two complete games and 562 ⅔ innings.
