Carl Crawford has been placed on the 15-day disabled list after suffering a Grade 1 left hamstring strain during the first inning of the Red Sox' win over the Brewers on Friday night at Fenway Park.
"The medical people throughout at best that it was going to be 10-14 days," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said this afternoon. "So that was kind of a no-brainer." (via Boston Globe)
Crawford suffered the injury running out an infield single. Immediately after suffering the injury, Crawford talked to trainers and limped off the field into the dugout. An in-game MRI revealed the Grade 1 hamstring strain.
Crawford is batting .243 with six home runs, 31 RBI and eight steals in 67 games for Boston.
Josh Reddick was called up from AAA-Pawtucket to take Crawford's place. In five games with the Red Sox this season, Reddick is batting .385. In Pawtucket, Reddick was hitting .230 with 14 home runs.
