Per my Globe colleague Nick Cafardo, Carl Crawford was at Massachusetts General Hospital today and passed his physical.
The amazing part was he ran there from Fenway and made it in 17 seconds.
OK, so I made that last part up. But Crawford is healthy and ready for his press conference which could be in the next day or two. With Christmas at Fenway tomorrow, you have to wonder whether CC will be hanging out at the old ballyard.
Also, the Red Sox officially announced that Jason Varitek signed a one-year deal. That was agreed to back on Dec. 2.
