After being ahead of schedule in rehab of his broken wrist, Boston Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford suffered a setback in progression on Friday as he reportedly aggravated the wrist in live batting practice.
As a result of the setback, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine and team officials have scheduled Crawford for an examination on his left wrist on Monday with team doctors. Valentine told WEEI the procedure does not involve an MRI, or anything along those lines.
"He's getting another check-up tomorrow just to make sure he's OK to continue swinging again," Valentine said
If all goes well on Monday, Valentine said that he doesn't believe that Crawford's setback isn't serious, and that if all goes well on Monday, would be able to resume activity early next week.
"I hate to put dates on these things but if everything's OK on Monday, he should at least be throwing and starting that tee, swing work again," Valentine said. "It was aggressive at the beginning. I think we all knew it was aggressive and I was amazed it had progressed so far. He's OK." (WEEI)
