Carl Crawford Injury Update: Outfielder Will Likely Play In Minor Leagues On Tuesday

Carl Crawford has not appeared in a game for the Red Sox this season. He had surgery to repair a bum wrist and suffered a few setbacks since then. The good news is, Bobby Valentine expected Crawford to play in his first extended Spring Training game on Tuesday, according to Brian MacPherson of the Providence Jorunal.

Carl Crawford will fly back to Fort Myers, Fla., on Monday and "more than likely" will play in his first extended-spring-training game on Tuesday, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said.

"He'd like to play at least by Tuesday," Valentine said.

The 29 year old outfielder will look to bounce back from the worst season of his Major League career, in year two of his contract with the Boston Red Sox. He hit a career low .255 last season, along with his lowest stolen base total since 2002.
