Carl Crawford is not in Sunday's lineup due to tightness in his right side.

It was a little curious to see him sitting against a right-hander, and now we know why he was. It's not clear when Crawford suffered the injury or how long he might be sidelined. The Dodgers will go with Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig in the outfield while Crawford is out.

Carl Crawford went 3-for-5 with a double, steal and game-winning RBI in Tuesday’s 10-inning, 3-2 victory over the Tigers.

He was also caught stealing for the first time this year, versus three successful conversions.

This was his second multi-hit game of the season.
Apr 9 - 1:44 AM

Carl Crawford went 1-for-4 and plated the Dodgers lone run in Sunday’s loss to the Padres.

Crawford made one of the only mistake pitches that Andrew Cashner threw on the evening pay, when he lined an 0-2 pitch to left in the fifth inning, scoring Dee Gordon from second base. It was a nice debut for Crawford, who missed the two-game series in Australia to be with his girlfriend for the birth of their child.
Mar 30 - 11:04 PM

Dodgers activated OF Carl Crawford from the paternity leave list.

Alex Guerrero was sent down to Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding roster move. Crawford was inactive for the season-opening Australia series while he awaited the birth of his child, but he should be in the lineup when the season resumes this Sunday against the Padres.
Mar 25 - 2:58 PM

Carl Crawford went 3-for-3 with a homer and an RBI single against Cincinnati's Triple-A team on Thursday.

He missed a day with mild right shoulder inflammation. It's not a big deal, as Crawford is basically just waiting for the Dodgers to return from Australia. The veteran outfielder didn't make the trip and will begin the season on the paternity leave list as his wife gives birth.
Mar 20 - 8:40 PM

Carl Crawford will sit out workouts and game action for at least a few days due to the flu.

Crawford was lifted in the second inning of a Triple-A game against the Mariners on Tuesday; he didn't make the trip to Australia in order to be with his fiancée, who is expecting their child. "Since he was feeling a little ill, there's no reason to rush him back in right now," a training staff member said.
Mar 19 - 3:42 PM

Carl Crawford (shoulder) is expected to return to playing in minor league games for the Dodgers on Thursday.

Crawford exited Tuesday's game with a little inflammation in his right shoulder, but it's no big deal. He'll sit out Wednesday (which was already a scheduled day off) before returning Thursday. Crawford didn't make the trip to Australia in order to be with his fiancée, who is expecting their child.
Mar 18 - 11:41 PM

Carl Crawford had to leave a minor league game Tuesday due to a minor shoulder injury.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is expected to provide an update from Australia later Tuesday, but it doesn't sound like something that would keep Crawford out Opening Day. The outfielder has remained at the team's spring training complex in Arizona to be with his expecting fiancée.
Mar 18 - 7:40 PM

Dodgers placed OF Carl Crawford on the paternity leave list.

He's now officially out for the club's two games in Australia. Crawford will stay back to be with his fiance as she gives birth but will be back on the roster for Opening Day back in the states.
Mar 16 - 1:59 PM

Carl Crawford will miss the team's opening series against the Diamondbacks in Australia due to the pending birth of his child.

Crawford's girlfriend is expected to give birth in the coming week, and it's an event that Crawford didn't want to risk missing. With Crawford and Matt Kemp both missing, the Dodgers will have to get creative with their outfield for the first pair of games.
Mar 15 - 1:46 PM

Carl Crawford might not travel with the Dodgers to Australia, as he could stay back in order to be with his girlfriend, who is expecting a baby soon.

The Dodgers leave for Sydney on Sunday, so Crawford has a couple days to decide whether or not to make the trip. The outfielder is batting just .136/.321/.136 with no extra-base hits over nine games during Cactus League play.
Mar 14 - 12:13 PM

Carl Crawford (quad) is back in the Dodgers' Cactus League lineup Tuesday against the Mariners.

Crawford missed about a week with a mild quad strain. It was not a serious concern for the Dodgers, who are optimistic that Crawford is poised for a bounceback 2014. He said earlier this month that he wants to steal 40 bases. He hasn't swiped 20 since he left Tampa Bay.
Mar 4 - 10:04 AM

Carl Crawford (quad) could return to Cactus League action on Tuesday.

Crawford tested out his right quad injury by running the bases on Monday. The outfielder suffered the ailment last Thursday but has been improving steadily and appears nearly 100 percent. Crawford revealed in an interview Sunday that he'd like to steal 40 bases in 2014 and it might be doable if he can keep his legs healthy.
