Crawford gets five plate appearances in GCL

Carl Crawford was 0 for 3 with two walks in a Gulf Coast League game in Fort Myers, Fla.

Facing the Twins, Crawford walked, grounded to second, was intentionally walked, grounded to second and flied to center field.

The left fielder has been on the disabled list all season recovering from surgery on his left wrist and, subsequently, a partially torn ligament in his left elbow.

Rehab assignments for position players can last up to 20 days, putting Crawford back in the majors right after the All-Star break. Crawford’s first game with the Red Sox this season could be July 13 at Tampa Bay.
