Carl Crawford Injury Update: Rehab Assignment Moving To Triple-A

Boston Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford's rehab assignment will advance to Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday.

The 30-year old said he could require offseason surgery and doesn't feel perfect, but is willing to and capable of playing through pain.

Via the Boston Globe:

"It's not 100 percent healthy but I'm able to hit," Crawford said. "The elbow, there are still some issues. I've been making some throws down in the minor leagues, good enough to hit the cutoff man. I don't know if I'll be hosing anybody out at home or anything like that.

"But I think it's strong enough to hit the cutoff man if I can get to the ball quick enough to stop the guys from advancing."

Crawford is hitting .292 over eight games of his current rehab assignment.
