According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, the Rays would consider a reunion with Carl Crawford.
Crawford was released by the Dodgers on June 13 after batting just .185/.230/.235 over his first 87 plate appearances in 2016. The 34-year-old might not have much left, but he'd be a low-cost outfielder for a team that can't spend and needs outfield depth. Crawford was drafted by the Rays in 1999 and spent his first nine MLB seasons in Tampa Bay, earning four All-Star nods. Maybe he can put a few extra fans in the seats at The Trop. Jun 20 - 1:18 PM

Dodgers released OF Carl Crawford.

Crawford was designated for assignment back on June 5 and not surprisingly, the Dodgers didn't find any takers. By releasing him, they will eat the remaining $35 million on his contract. The 34-year-old was batting just .185/.230/.235 across 87 plate appearances this season, but he'll surely find a new team quickly now that he can be signed for the major league minimum.

Dodgers designated OF Carl Crawford for assignment.

Crawford is still owed about $35 million through the end of next season, and it appears the Dodgers are prepared to eat the remainder of that deal. The 34-year-old outfielder is hitting only .185/.230/.235 across 87 plate appearances this season and has had trouble staying on the field the last few years. He's batted .271/.310/.407 and played 130 games just once since signing a seven-year, $142 million contract.
Jun 5 - 12:41 PM

Making his fourth straight start, Carl Crawford went 0-for-2 with a hit by pitch Thursday against the Cubs.

Crawford hasn't done anything with the extra playing time, going 1-for-11 with a walk during the stretch. One imagines he's due to go back to riding the pine once Yasiel Puig returns to the outfield.
Jun 2 - 4:53 PM

Carl Crawford was removed for a pinch runner after beating out an infield single in Saturday's contest against the Mets.

Crawford was replaced by LHP Alex Wood, which signaled that the 34-year-old outfielder could've suffered an injury while legging out a grounder to second base. If he is not injured, it represented a creative way to save his legs in a blowout victory. Something is up, though, it seems. Crawford is now hitting .209 with zero homers in 71 plate appearances.
May 28 - 10:08 PM

Carl Crawford went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored Friday against the Blue Jays.

The Dodgers couldn’t get anything going against Marcus Stroman until Joc Pederson and Crawford delivered back-to-back doubles in the seventh inning. The veteran outfielder was just 2-for-17 (.118) over his first six games off the disabled list, so this was nice to see. Still, with the various moving parts in the Dodgers’ lineup, he’s going to have to perform to find significant playing time.
May 6 - 10:15 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Carl Crawford will not get any starts in Tampa Bay.

Roberts wants to keep the veteran outfielder off the Tropicana Field turf, and the Dodgers' next three games will be on the Rogers Centre turf in Toronto. It could be a very light week for Crawford.
May 3 - 5:20 PM

Carl Crawford went 0-for-4 on Friday and is 1-for-11 with a walk since coming off the disabled list.

Crawford could have used a hot start upon returning in order to secure the starting gig that was initially expected to be his while Andre Ethier was out. Dave Roberts figures to keep mixing and matching for now and occasionally using Howie Kendrick in left to make room for Chase Utley at second.
Apr 30 - 1:28 AM

Dodgers activated OF Carl Crawford from the 15-day disabled list.

He is starting in left field and batting seventh on Tuesday night against Marlins right-hander Tom Koehler. Crawford missed a little over two weeks with a lower back injury. He'll carry some DFS intrigue on days when he bats higher in the Los Angeles lineup.
Apr 26 - 6:20 PM

Carl Crawford (back) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

Crawford has been sidelined since April 8 with lower back soreness. He should see starts against right-handers upon his return, but the Dodgers have plenty of moving parts.
Apr 25 - 6:38 PM

Carl Crawford (back) will be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

Crawford will complete a rehab assignment Sunday after recovering from a lower back injury. He should see plenty of playing time in left field against right-handers.
Apr 24 - 2:16 PM

Carl Crawford's rehab assignment will shift to High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Sunday.

It should be his last stop before the Dodgers activate him on Monday. Crawford has gone 3-for-8 with two RBI in his first two rehab appearances. He's been out with a lower back injury since April 8.
Apr 23 - 8:39 PM

Carl Crawford (back) is on track to be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

He had been slated to return Sunday, but a travel issue cost him a day of rehab at-bats. Crawford was hitless in four plate appearances Thursday in his first rehab contest. He'll see regular starts in left field against righties once he returns.
Apr 22 - 10:17 AM

Carl Crawford (back) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Crawford, who has been sidelined since April 8 due to lower back soreness, is eligible to return for this weekend's series against the Rockies in Colorado. Barring any setbacks, it sounds like he has a good chance to be ready by then.
Apr 19 - 2:25 PM

Carl Crawford (back) will travel with the team to Atlanta before beginning a rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Crawford seems to be in good health after running the bases at full speed on Saturday. He should return as soon as he's eligible to come off the disabled list. The Dodgers could use some stability in left field. Enrique Hernandez, Howie Kendrick and Trayce Thompson have all seen time there during Crawford's absence.
