Carl Crawford signed
The Red Sox rocked the baseball world during the 2010 winter meetings by signing 29-year old, four-time All-Star Carl Crawford. Crawford hit .307 with 19 home runs, 90 RBIs, and 47 stolen bases two seasons ago for the Tampa Bay Rays, but he did not live up to his $142 million contract in his first season with the Red Sox. Crawford hit .255 with just 18 stolen bases, was dropped in the lineup, and was a bit shaky in left field in his first season with the Red Sox, leaving many to question the signing. Now Crawford is recovering from elbow and wrist injuries, looking for a July return to the lineup.
