Dodgers’ Carl Crawford expects to return Saturday

Los Angeles Dodgers veteran outfielder Carl Crawford probably wishes that he could restart Spring Training like you’re able to do on MLB 14 The Show.

The guy talked about how he wanted to steal more bases this season after feeling like he was limited during base running last season. He had himself a terrible game yesterday against Arizona Diamondback’s split squad to open Cactus League play.

Now Crawford ended up belly flopping his way into second base after a failed hit and run after Yasiel Puig sent a pitch foul. Not exactly sure if that’s how he planned on sliding into second, but I highly doubt it felt good.

Shortly after flopping into second base, Crawford ended up injuring his right hamstring after scoring from first base off a Puig double.

Crawford sat our during Thursday’s game because of quad tightness, but according to Dylan Hernandez on Twitter, he expects to return to the lineup on Saturday.

I don’t know about you guys, but I have a feeling if Crawford continues to play this way, he’s going to end up being traded.
