The Los Angeles Dodgers may be facing yet another hamstring injury.  Carl Crawford had to leave yesterday's game against the Colorado Rockies after experiencing an issue with his leg.  The issue appeared to be some sort of hamstring injury, but the team will evaluate Crawford further before releasing a diagnosis. As Dayn Perry of CBS Sports said, Dodgers' GM Ned Coletti said in the broadcast booth during the game that it appeared Crawford had simply suffered a cramp.  Of course, Coletti likely doesn't know for sure and simply wants to pacify an already frustrated fan base.  However, if Crawford did merely suffer cramping, it will be welcome news for a team that has seen players like Hanley Ramirez and Matt Kemp miss time with hamstring injuries. Crawford is playing in his first season with the Dodgers.  While he was part of the blockbuster deal that brought him, Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, and Nick Punto to Los Angeles, Crawford was on the DL at the time of the trade.  He missed the entire second half while battling a torn UCL in his elbow.  He eventually underwent Tommy John surgery and returned this year. Blogging for Susie Crawford had a rough go of things in Boston, but he has played well with the Dodgers.  In 50 games, Crawford is hitting .293/.352/.453.  In his entire tenure with Boston, Crawford hit a disappointing .260/.292/.419. Scott Van Slyke replaced Crawford yesterday, and he may be an option if the veteran has to miss an extended period, but the Dodgers would likely look elsewhere for outfield help.  If Crawford goes to the DL, you can be sure they would not be using Van Slyke on a daily basis.
