Dodgers placed OF Carl Crawford on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique.
Crawford said that "it's a bad tear," so it sounds like he could be looking at a pretty lengthy stay on the disabled list. Alex Guerrero is starting in left field on Tuesday and should see plenty of starts there while Crawford is out, although Scott Van Slyke also figures to play a bunch. Apr 28 - 6:41 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said after Monday's game that it "sounds like" Carl Crawford is dealing with an oblique injury.

Crawford was forced to leave Monday's game due to what is being termed as tightness in his right side. The Dodgers should know more about his status on Tuesday, but a trip to the disabled list could be a possibility. Andre Ethier is currently filling in for Yasiel Puig, so Alex Guerrero and Scott Van Slyke could see an uptick in playing time.

Carl Crawford had to leave Monday's game against the Giants with tightness in his right side.

More should be known after the game, but obviously if it's an oblique issue he could wind up on the disabled list. With Yasiel Puig (hamstring) already on the shelf, Alex Guerrero and Scott Van Slyke could see time in left field if Crawford is out for a while.
Apr 28 - 12:19 AM

Carl Crawford left Monday's game against the Giants with an apparent injury.

Crawford appeared to be in bit of pain after legging out a triple in the second inning. He initially remained in the game but was eventually pulled after scoring following a single in the third. The Dodgers should provide an update on his status shortly.
Apr 27 - 11:20 PM

Carl Crawford homered and doubled in a winning cause Friday against the Padres.

Crawford has come under a little early fire, in part because Alex Guerrero needs more playing time and could be an alternative in left field. Crawford, though, likely remains the team's best option there against righties. He was off to an ugly start going into this one, though, with a .216 average and just one RBI in 37 at-bats.
Apr 25 - 1:34 AM

Carl Crawford (illness) went hitless in two at-bats Tuesday in his return to the lineup.

Crawford had been under the weather for a few days. He's struggled so far this season (.242/.265/.303) but will continue to start regularly in left field against right-handers.
Apr 22 - 11:31 AM

Carl Crawford (illness) might not be available off the bench Sunday.

In fact, he might not come to the ballpark at all. Crawford is under the weather and was given IV fluids on Saturday. The Dodgers are off Monday, so they seem likely to just tell the outfielder to get some extra rest before joining them for their road trip beginning Tuesday.
Apr 19 - 2:29 PM

Carl Crawford is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Saturday due to an illness.

Andre Ethier will take over in left field. Crawford's fantasy contributions have been minimal this season (.258, 0 HR, 1 RBI, 0 SB) so it's not the end of the world. He could be back for the series finale Sunday.
Apr 18 - 6:22 PM

Carl Crawford (ankle) returned to the Dodgers lineup on Friday, going 1-for-5 in a victory over the Rockies.

Crawford sat out Wednesday's contest after jamming his ankle on Tuesday, but the injury appears to have been very minor. The veteran outfielder is off to a bit of a slow start in 2015, slashing .258/.281/.323 with one RBI and zero stolen bases in his first nine games.
Apr 18 - 8:19 AM

Carl Crawford is not in the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday due to a stiff ankle.

Crawford jammed his foot in Tuesday's game, but he told reporters he's available off the bench Wednesday. Scott Van Slyke started in left field for the Dodgers Wednesday.
Apr 15 - 7:48 PM

Carl Crawford is dealing with a minor shin bruise.

Crawford isn't playing Sunday, but he was already scheduled for a day off. The outfielder should be back in action in a day or two. He's slated to handle left field for the Dodgers this season.
Mar 8 - 11:16 AM

Carl Crawford went 1-for-2 with a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 5-5 tie against the Indians.

Crawford singled, stole second, and scored in the first inning against 2014 AL Cy Young winner Corey Kluber. The 33-year-old has had trouble avoiding injury since joining the Dodgers. If he can stay healthy in 2015, he should be able to post double digits in both home runs and stolen bases.
Mar 7 - 6:11 PM

Carl Crawford left Saturday's Cactus League game against the Indians after fouling a ball off his right shin.

Crawford stayed in to finish out the at-bat, striking out, but he was replaced by Alex Guerrero the following half inning. It's likely precautionary, as it happened in the fourth inning and Crawford's day was probably close to done anyway. Still, it will be something the club will likely monitor in the next few days.
Mar 7 - 4:14 PM

Carl Crawford went 2-for-5 and scored a run in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.

He singled twice and scored the first run of the game on a Matt Kemp double play ball in the sixth. Unfortunately for the Dodgers, Crawford also made the last out of the game, grounding into a fielder's choice with two runners on. He was the only hitter on either team to record multiple hits in the game.

Carl Crawford went 2-for-2 with a double and a steal in Wednesday's victory over the Giants.

He also drove in two runs and scored three more. The veteran outfielder has hit safely in five consecutive games. Crawford is 26-for-60 (.520) with seven doubles, a triple, three homers and 16 RBI this month. The 33-year-old has produced when he's been the field, batting .290 with eight homers and 22 steals in only 334 at-bats.
