Carl Crawford To Visit Dr. James Andrews

Carl Crawford underwent wrist surgery on January 17, to clean up an injury that had caused him some soreness in the past but was quickly worsening. He's missed joining the Red Sox because of the necessary recovery, but along the way, he developed an elbow problem. It was considered minor, but was keeping him from playing the outfield, as he would need to throw should the ball come his way.

Crawford came back to Boston to get a second opinion on the elbow, since this supposedly minor ache was still giving him problems. Potentially bad news is forthcoming:

Carl Crawford, still experiencing soreness in left elbow, will visit Dr. James Andrews soon. Exact date not known. #RedSoxTalk

Visiting Dr. Andrews doesn't automatically mean Crawford is to be cut open again, but it's not a great sign that this isn't resolved yet, either. Since we don't know what is potentially wrong with his elbow, it's tough to guess how long he could be out if that turns out to be the case, too.

We'll keep you updated as news rolls in, but for now, you can either hope this is the visit that clears things up for the better, or be thankful Marlon Byrd has looked like the useful version of himself during his short time in Boston.
