This is exactly what I've done for a strawberry addition. Dunked a nylon bag full of frozen fruit into my 5 gallon starsan bucket a few times and then gently lowered it into the primary. It'll turn your starsan a little pink but other than that it worked fine.
The beer/yeasties will go to work on the fruit all on their own. No need to crush. After three weeks the berries will be soft, mushy, grey lumps and all the flavor will be in your beer.
