|Carl Crawford homers, steals base in three-hit game Tuesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/20/14) Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford went 3 for 3 with a walk, a home run, three RBI and a stolen base in his team's 8-6 win over the Padres Tuesday.
Crawford gave his team an insurance run with a fifth-inning single that extended the lead to 6-4, and he followed that up with a two-run blast in the seventh to put the game out of reach for the Padres. Crawford's home run was his first since coming off the disabled list in mid-July. He owns a .268/.304/.370 line with five home runs, 29 RBI and 19 stolen bases in 254 at-bats
|Report: Carl Crawford on trading block |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/28/14) Unproductive outfielder Carl Crawford is being offered in trade talks by the Dodgers, per Yahoo! Sports.
Crawford is owed $69.25 million through 2017, which means Los Angeles will likely be forced to pay most of that to any prospective suitor. His stat line of .242/.278/.360 does not warrant that level of income.
|Carl Crawford to take fly balls in center field |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/12/14) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Sunday that outfielder Carl Crawford will begin taking fly balls in center field, TrueBlueLA.com reports.
Crawford was activated from the disabled list this week, but the Dodgers are set at the corners, leaving the high-priced veteran to fill a reserve role. If he proves he can handle center field on a semiregular basis, it could lead to more of a playing opportunity.
|Carl Crawford activated Thursday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/10/14) Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford was activated from the disabled list Thursday, according to MLB.com.
Crawford was expected to return from an ankle injury, so the news shouldn't come as a shock. Clint Robinson was designated for assignment in order to make room for Crawford.
|Dodgers not expected to make change to OF alignment |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/9/14) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday he doesn't expect to change the outfield alignment as Carl Crawford (ankle) is set to return from the disabled list this week, per MLB.com.
"I'm not really planning on making any big changes right now," Mattingly said.
Mattingly added he's happy with Matt Kemp in left field, and the platoon of Andre Ethier and Scott Van Slyke in center field.
"I like what's going on in center," Mattingly said. "We're playing pretty well. We'll talk about it. But as long as we're playing well and continue to win, we'll have conversations with everybody."
|Carl Crawford's once-promising career has been horribly derailed by one injury after the other. The 2013 season brought another injury-plagued campaign for Crawford, who played fewer than 150 games for the third straight year. When he was healthy, the 32-year-old outfielder was hardly the offensive threat he once was. Crawford still had good doubles power and hit for a decent average, but he slugged just .407 and stole just 15 bases in 116 games. Crawford isn't getting any younger, so his upside isn't what it used to be. Also, after three straight injury-plagued seasons, Fantasy owners are going to be more hesitant to use a draft pick on him. It does help that Crawford will still be part of a loaded Dodgers lineup in 2014, but he should not be drafted in Fantasy before the middle rounds. In fact, don't be surprised if he falls into the late rounds on Draft Day.
