Jon Heyman of CBS Sports is hearing the Dodgers could make Carl Crawford available in a trade this offseason.
Once a perennial All-Star and among the best all-around outfielders in baseball, Crawford has faded into mediocrity while battling injuries the last several seasons. Teams probably won't be lining up for a 34-year-old who batted .265 last year. Crawford's exorbitant salary will make it even harder to move him. Trading Crawford would give the Dodgers more money to spend on Zack Greinke but for now, it's a pipe dream. Sat, Nov 28, 2015 10:22:00 PM

Carl Crawford (shoulder) has limited availability for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks.

The shoulder hasn't been an issue lately, but nothing is a surprise with the oft-injured outfielder. Crawford only recently returned to the Dodgers' lineup after missing a few games with a right hamstring injury. He should be considered day-to-day for now.

Carl Crawford (hamstring) tripled and scored a run in his return to the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

Crawford missed several games with a mild right hamstring strain. He looked healthy racing around the bases on Sunday afternoon against the Pirates and should get a good amount of starts this week in the Dodgers' outfield.

Carl Crawford (hamstring) remained out of the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday.

He's now missed three straight games with a right hamstring injury, although the Rockies throwing a lefty could also be a factor in him sitting. Justin Ruggiano is in left field.

Carl Crawford left Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks with right hamstring tightness.

Scott Schebler pinch-hit for Crawford in the fifth inning and replaced him in left field. Crawford went 1-for-3 with a solo home run before exiting. We wouldn't expect to see Crawford play in Sunday's series finale.

Carl Crawford came off the bench in the ninth inning and hit a three-run home run in Monday's loss to the Nationals.

The Dodgers were down 8-0 when Crawford belted a Doug Fister offering over the fence in right field, so it was too little, too late. Crawford, who came off of the disabled list on July 21, has been operating in a part-time role for the Dodgers. He's hitting .233/.253/.397 with two home runs and nine RBI in 76 plate appearances this season.

Dodgers activated OF Carl Crawford from the 60-day disabled list.

Crawford, out since late April with a torn oblique, hit .353 (12-for-34) with five extra-base hits during his minor league rehab assignment. However, he's expected to serve in a part-time role in his return to the Dodgers.

Carl Crawford (oblique) said he will be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

The original thought was that he'd be added to the Dodgers' active roster on Monday, but the veteran outfielder will get one additional day of rest and rehab. Crawford hit very well in his extended stay in the minors but he probably won't get regular playing time in Los Angeles down the stretch unless there are some injuries on the depth chart around him.

Carl Crawford (oblique) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

Crawford will play in his ninth rehab game on Friday after hitting .346/.400/.577 in the first eight. The veteran outfielder has been sidelined since late April with a severe right oblique strain. He's expected to be used in a reserve role upon activation.

Carl Crawford (oblique) will resume his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday.

Crawford has been out the past couple of days due to flu-like symptoms. He worked out with the Dodgers on Friday and admitted that he should be ready to return to the club immediately after the All-Star break, though it's likely to be in a reserve role.
Fri, Jul 3, 2015 07:13:00 PM

Carl Crawford (oblique) is out of Thursday's lineup with High-A Rancho Cucamonga due to flu-like symptoms.

Crawford left Wednesday's rehab game after he was hit by a pitch, but his absence on Thursday apparently isn't related. If so, odds are he'll return to game action this weekend.
Thu, Jul 2, 2015 05:30:00 PM

Carl Crawford (oblique) left Wednesday's rehab game with High-A Rancho Cucamonga after being hit by a pitch.

The Rancho Cucamonga Twitter feed said Crawford "went down" and "limped off the field on (his) own power." The outfielder can't catch a break, as he's currently rehabbing a strained right oblique that has kept him out since late April. The Dodgers should provide an update on Crawford's newest ailment on Thursday.
