Crawford underwent Tommy John surgery in July 2012, which allowed him to only play 31 games during the 2012 season. He was part of a blockbuster deal last summer with the Boston Red Sox that sent him, Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Nick Punto and $11 million cash to Los Angeles for James Loney, Ivan DeJesus Jr., Allen Webster, Jerry Sands and Rubby De La Rosa.
Crawford’s official spring training debut took place during last Sunday’s 11-1 victory against the Milwaukee Brewers in which he went 0 for 3. He had a better outing in his second spring training game—a 5-3 loss on Monday against the Arizona Diamondbacks with two hits and two RBIs.
