Selected by the Cardinals in the 24th round of the 1999 amateur entry draft, Crudale played his first professional season with their Rookie League team, the Johnson City Cardinals in 1999. After moving up the Cardinals chain, Crudale made the big club out of spring training in 2002 and pitched well, with a 3-0 mark and a 1.88 ERA out of the bullpen (plus one start). Crudale spent most of the 2003 season at AAA Memphis, however, and was dealt in August to Milwaukee, who released him in spring training in 2004.
