Dodgers looking to trade 1-2 veteran outfielders


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Rival executives expect the Dodgers to trade at least one veteran outfielder, and potentially two, as they attempt to sort out their crowded outfield situation, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Sources suggest Carl Crawford and Andre Ethier are the two outfielders the Dodgers seem most likely to trade, Heyman reports.

FOX Sports MLB Insider Ken Rosenthal reported Sunday the Dodgers are aggressively trying to trade Crawford, Ethier or Matt Kemp. The Dodgers are also considering offering money in a trade since all three players have big contracts.


Hitters to sit in Week 25


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Thinking about starting Carl Crawford, Kurt Suzuki, Mike Napoli, Rougned Odor, Trevor Plouffe or Javier Baez in Fantasy Week 25 (Sept. 15-21)? You might want to think again.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Carl Crawford continues solid hitting


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford put together a strong performance Monday, as part of a 9-4 win over the Chargers.

Crawford put together his third multi-hit game in his last four starts, as he went 3 for 4 in the win. He drove in three runs with a fifth inning home run, and scored two total in the game, while walking once.

Crawford has raised his batting average nearly 15 points since the start of the month, as he is hitting .429 in 21 September at-bats. He is hitting .276/.315/.387 overall. 


Carl Crawford producing well in part-time role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford hit safely for the sixth time in eight games Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, as he continues to find ways to contribute.

Crawford, who entered the 3-1 win as a reserve, went 1 for 2 in his two trips to the plate. He has been mostly used as a platoon hitter recently, and it has helped his production, as Crawford is 10 for 23 with four stolen bases and eight runs scored over his last eight games. 


Carl Crawford homers, steals base in three-hit game Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) 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'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
(7/28/2014) 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

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.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."

"I don't know what I'm going to play when I get back," Crawford said, per the Los Angeles Times. "I just don't really know what my situation is going to be. I want to take care of my part. If I was a guessing man, I would say they will go with whoever is hitting.
