MLB Injury News:
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford finished his
minor league rehab assignment last night. The veteran has made it through his
recovery without issue, leading Dodgers manager Don Mattingly to tell reporters
– including Ken Gurnick of MLB.com – that he expects Crawford to rejoin the
team Friday for their weekend series against the San Francisco Giants.
Crawford has been sidelined since the beginning of June with
a hamstring injury. Los Angeles has given him plenty of time to recover, in
part because hamstring injuries can prove tricky, but also because the team has
four outfielders for three positions; Crawford, Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and
rookie Yasiel Puig.
Mattingly expects Puig to see the most playing time, with
the other three rotating in order to keep all fresh. Puig has earned playing
time with his ridiculous debut, while Kemp and Ethier have gotten off to
slower-than-expected starts for Los Angeles.
Prior to suffering his injury, Crawford was off to a nice
for the Dodgers. Over 201 plate appearances, the 31-year-old was hitting
.301/.358/.470 with 12 doubles, two triples, five home runs and nine stolen
bases in 12 attempts.
