Carl Crawford said before returning on Monday night that his hamstring feels good and that the only thing he needs to work on is his timing at the plate. Other than that, though, Crawford said he's just focused on winning games.
Crawford said that, during his rehab stint in Pawtucket, he wasn't necessarily concerned with the results of his at-bats. Instead, he was focused more on doing "baseball things."
Obviously given the type of player that Crawford is, it was important for him to test out his hamstring to ensure that it's 100 percent.
NESN's Tom Caron and Dennis Eckersley said that the Sox' main concern right now, though, is their starting rotation. Its depth is currently being tested, as Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz continue to work their way back from the DL.
To hear what else Caron and Eckersley had to say, as well as Crawford's expectations upon returning to the lineup, check out the video above from Red Sox Gameday Live Presented by UNO.
