(9/13/14) Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford went 2 for 3 with a walk, a double, a home run and three RBI in his team's 9-0 win over the Dodgers Friday.
The Giants closed the gap with the division-leading Dodgers to one game thanks in part to Crawford, who doubled home the final run in a four-run first inning before slugging a two-run home run in the fifth. He has hit .238/.320/.381 with nine home runs and 62 RBI in 446 at-bats.

(8/28/14) Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford was scratched from the lineup for the second day in a row Thursday against the Rockies, due to a right shoulder that "has been bugging me pretty good the last four or five day," he told the San Francisco Chronicle.
Crawford was also out of the lineup Wednesday, and it is not clear when he is expected back. It seems like he could play through the injury, but it is affected his throwing right now.

(7/19/14) Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford helped power the team to a 9-1 win over the Marlins Friday.
Crawford played just five innings in the game, as he made his impact felt early. He went 1 for 2, with a two-run home run in the second inning and a sacrifice fly in the fifth to finish with three RBI and a run scored.
Crawford has been a surprise source of power for the Giants this season, hitting eight home runs in 93 games; his previous career-high was nine in 149 games last year. Crawford is hitting .242/.323/.419 in 298 at-bats.
|Brandon Crawford played his way into the Giants starting lineup a few seasons ago because of his defensive presence. Whatever the Giants got offensively was gravy. Well, for a while in 2013 the Giants must have been loading up on turkey because Crawford came out of the gates on fire at the plate. He hit a surprising .294 with a .359 on-base percentage and 21 extra-base hits in his first 65 games. He even gave Fantasy owners surprising production, averaging 14.7 Fantasy points per scoring period over the first 11 weeks. Sadly, Crawford couldn't sustain and eventually started to regress. By season's end, he had a .248 average and .311 on-base percentage, which was almost a mirror image of what he did (.248/.304) in his first full season in the majors in 2012. With no one really pushing Crawford in the minors, his job is safe for now. Still, he doesn't have great offensive upside, so leave him for NL-only Fantasy formats Draft Day.
