Crawford Could Make for a Crowd

Carl Crawford begins a rehab assignment Saturday night at Triple-A Albuquerque for a sprained ankle that put him on the shelf for six weeks. His estimated return around the All-Star break will again create an outfielder surplus and maybe this time management will finally move one of them. Prior to his injury, the clubhouse chemistry was sour when Crawford and Matt Kemp had to share playing time. The Red Sox, among others, have been following the Dodgers closely and have long had interest in Andre Ethier, whose bat finally showed signs of life in the last week. Whether it be Ethier, Crawford or Kemp, each has a huge contract. The Dodgers would either be forced to eat part, or pick up somebody else’s huge contract. GM Ned Colletti has said bolstering the bullpen is the immediate focus. — Ken Gurnick
