Carl Crawford Diagnosed With Left Elbow UCL Sprain, Shut Down From Baseball Activity for Treatment


It doesn’t looks like Carl Crawford will be back in the lineup any time soon.

The Red Sox outfielder will miss three months as he continues to recover from his wrist injury, according to the Boston Globe’s Peter Abraham.

Abraham reported on Red Sox Gameday LIVE presented by UNO that Crawford’s latest trip to the doctor resulted in bad news. Crawford has been out all season long after undergoing offseason surgery on his left wrist.

The team later issued the following statement:

“Carl Crawford was examined by the Red Sox medical staff.  He was diagnosed as having a left elbow ulnar collateral ligament sprain.  A conservative treatment protocol was recommended.  Carl was also examined by Dr. James Andrews who was in agreement with the assessment and plan.  Carl received a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injection and will be shut down from baseball activity during the initial phase of his treatment.”
