Carl Crawford went 4-for-4 and doubled three times in Wednesday's win over the Padres.

His second inning double drove in Matt Kemp to give the Dodgers a 1-0 lead. Juan Uribe singled Crawford in after the latter's seventh inning double, giving the Dodgers a 3-0 lead. Lastly, Crawford's eight inning two-sacker gave the Dodgers their final run a 4-0 win. San Diego is thrilled to be done with Crawford for the time being. He went 9-for-12 (.750) with a walk, four doubles, one homer, five RBI and three runs scored during the three-game set. The 33-year-old is a must-start whenever he gets hot like this. The Dodgers hope he can keep it up over the weekend in San Francisco.

Carl Crawford reached base in four of five plate appearances and hit a homer in Monday's 9-4 victory over the Padres.

He finished 3-for-4 with a walk, round-tripper, three RBI and a pair of runs scored. All three of those RBI came via the homer, a fifth inning blast that greeted reliever Frank Garces into the game. Crawford had gone hitless in his last three games. That said, he's mostly been hot since the beginning of last month. Crawford is slashing .276/.315/.387 with seven home runs on the year. Crawford

Carl Crawford added to what was already a crazy game with his two-run home run off Tyler Clippard in the 12th inning of Wednesday's game against the Nationals.

The game was back and forth and featured two comebacks from the Dodgers, with Crawford's blast serving as the most shocking. It was the highlight of a very good day for the 33-year-old, who finished 3-for-7 with those two RBI and two runs scored. Crawford is hitting .274/.313/.378 with six home runs on the year.
Sep 3 - 8:49 PM

Carl Crawford is not in the Dodgers' lineup against the Mets on Friday.

It appears to just be a routine day off for the left fielder. Crawford has been swinging it well of late, batting .338/.368/.400 in August. Scott Van Slyke started in left in his place Friday.
Aug 22 - 6:59 PM

Carl Crawford reached base in all four plate appearances, scored three runs and knocked in three more in Tuesday's 8-6 victory over the Padres.

He finished 3-for-3 with a walk, home run and stolen base. If owners in your league have been slumbering and Crawford remains available on the waiver wire, stop reading this update and go pick him up. Just go. In his last 12 starts, Crawford has eight multi-hit games. He is 21-for-50 (.420) with six steals since August 4. The one fantasy element we haven't seen during his hot streak is power -- no homers since May 23 coming into tonight -- so it was good to see him leave the yard. Crawford is a must-start in all formats until he cools off.
Aug 20 - 2:09 AM

Carl Crawford had his fourth consecutive multi-hit game, going 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Wednesday's loss to the Braves.

Crawford has been on a bit of a tear as of late, hitting .625 (10-for-16) over his last four games. He put the Dodgers on the board with an RBI single in the second, and he would score his club's second run later that inning. It's been a tough season overall for Crawford, as he has a .261/.296/.357 slash line with four home runs, 25 RBI, and 15 stolen bases.
Aug 13 - 11:04 PM

Carl Crawford was a catalyst, going 3-for-4 with a double and a walk as the Dodgers notched a 4-2 victory over the Braves on Tuesday.

Crawford has now had three consecutive multi-hit games, perhaps a sign he's ready to break out of his slump. Even with Tuesday's effort, he has a paltry .256/.293/.355 slash line with four home runs, 24 RBI, and 14 stolen bases in 249 plate appearances.
Aug 12 - 10:22 PM

Carl Crawford went 3-for-4 with a couple of RBI against the Braves on Monday.

Crawford has been regularly getting the nod over Andre Ethier in left, though he's not doing a lot with it; he entered the night with an ugly .188/.230/.217 line in 69 at-bats during the second half. He should be on the bench tomorrow versus the left-handed Mike Minor, but he'll be back in there against righties in the final two games against the Braves.
Aug 11 - 10:40 PM

Carl Crawford went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

Crawford has settled into a starting role and has responded in recent days, going 7-for-21 with three runs scored in his last six starts. It's nothing to write home about -- he's not hitting for any extra-base power whatsoever, and he owns just a .239/.275/.336 line on the year -- but it's worth noting in NL-only leagues where he's available.
Aug 10 - 8:03 PM

Carl Crawford went 1-for-4 with a single and a strikeout in Friday's loss to the Brewers.

Crawford has functioned as the Dodgers' regular left fielder of late, but he hasn't done much with the opportunity, batting just .180 (11-for-61) over his last 18 games. The 33-year-old has just one extra-base hit (a triple) and a 13/2 K/BB ratio in that timespan. He's not worth using in standard mixed leagues right now.
Aug 9 - 1:06 AM

According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, the Dodgers are "floating Carl Crawford to teams."

It's going to be a difficult sell with Crawford still owed close to $70 million through 2017 and batting just .242/.278/.360 in 198 plate appearances this season. The Dodgers are also known to be shopping Matt Kemp as they try to clear their outfield logjam and dump some salary at the July 31 trade deadline. Not that they need to dump salary.
Jul 28 - 1:21 PM

Carl Crawford delivered an RBI triple and scored a run as the Dodgers topped the Giants 4-3 on Sunday night.

Crawford, who is penciled in as the everyday left fielder for the time being, is in the midst of a disappointing season, hitting .242/.278/.360 with four homers, 20 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 55 games.
Jul 27 - 11:34 PM

Carl Crawford stole his 10th base of the season in a win over the Padres on Sunday.

The stolen base is noteworthy for the fact that it's his first since returning from an ankle injury that sidelined him since late May. Crawford is hitting .261/.295/.389 and appears to be the odd man out in the Dodgers outfield. Until that changes, he can't be trusted in fantasy leagues.
Jul 13 - 11:17 PM

Carl Crawford began shagging fly balls in center field on Friday.

Crawford, who will turn 33 in a few weeks, hasn't started more than one game in center field since the 2005 season. He's now the Dodgers' fourth outfielder, though, and the team would like him to be able to play all three spots. "I think, in our situation, there’s nothing wrong with him going out there and taking some fly balls," manager Don Mattingly said. "You never know what could happen. We’ve encouraged him to kind of do a little work out there. Also I can’t let him get away from left field, but he just wants to play. He’s looking for at-bats."
