Carl Crawford has joined fellow outfielder Yasiel Puig on the disabled list with a right oblique strain, and infielder-outfielder Kiké Hernandez has been called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Crawford injured himself during his second-inning triple Monday, on the swing, telling Eric Stephen of True Blue L.A. today that it was a “bad tear.” He has a .260 on-base percentage and .408 slugging percentage in 50 plate appearances this season. Crawford had an even slower start (.224/.278) in April 2014, but finished last season at .339/.429.

The 23-year-old Hernandez had a .321 OBP and slugged .421 in 134 plate appearances during his MLB debut in 2014. With Oklahoma City in 2015, Hernandez was at .219/.254, thanks largely to a 1-for-29 slump from April 12-20.

All-Star voting begins today


  1. CC, made of glass. This might be a blessing in disguise. SVS or Guerrero will have to play LF on the days a righty goes, and both in there today against a lefty, until Puig is back. I find it funny that DM refuses to bat Joc higher in lineup, yet Hernandez hits second the day he gets recalled.

    Just comes to show us that you never have too many outfielders. I wish CC a speedy recovery.
