Today’s rehabilitation assignment begins Carl Crawford’s road back to the Los Angeles, but his arrival is sure to create a traffic jam.
Expected to finish his recovery from a strained left hamstring with four games for Single-A Rancho Cucamonga, Crawford will join a Dodgers outfield including the game’s hottest hitter and two cornerstones of the franchise.
The question is, how will Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, rookie sensation Yasiel Puig and Crawford coexist in one outfield?
“I wouldn’t want to be the one making the decisions about who’s going to play,” Dodgers utility man Jerry Hairston Jr. said. “But it’s a good problem to have.”
