Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford, who was removed from Saturday’s game with a sore back, is not in the team’s starting lineup for Sunday’s game against the Giants. Crawford has been battling a sore back all season, the Los Angeles Times reports.
“He did something,” manager Don Mattingly told the Times. “It was something he went to the trainers with. Any time a guy goes to the trainer and says he’s stiffening up and tightening up, it’s something.”
Crawford has hit .233/.267/.302 in 43 at-bats in September.
