Crawford, who has missed the entire Major League season due to an issue with the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow, was supposed to start his Triple-A rehab assignment on Saturday, June 11. But he hit a setback, suffering a mild left groin strain that pushed back his trip to Pawtucket.
The 30-year old has played eight games during his rehab assignment so far, hitting .292 with zero home runs and one RBI. He was a disappointment last year during his first season with the Red Sox, batting .255 with 11 home run and 56 RBI.
