Crawford has not played in the major leagues yet this season while rehabbing the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow. He began his rehab assignment with five games in the Gulf Coast League, going 3 for 14 (.214) with zero home runs and zero RBI. He was caught stealing in his only attempt.
The 30-year old signed a seven-year, $142 million contract with the Red Sox prior to the 2011 season. In his first year with the team, he batted .255 with 11 home runs, 56 RBI and a paltry .289 on-base percentage.
