Reports: Dodgers’ Carl Crawford injures shoulder in minor-league game.

Carl CrawfordCarl Crawford left a minor-league spring training game against the Seattle Mariners after two innings Tuesday. According to multiple reports the Dodgers’ left fielder tweaked his right shoulder.

Crawford did not accompany the Dodgers to Sydney, Australia for Opening Day because of the anticipated birth of his child with fiancee Evelyn Lozada. He was scheduled to play with the Dodgers’ minor-league squad in Arizona until the major-league club returns.

In the Dodgers’ first Cactus League game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Feb. 26, Crawford tweaked a muscle in his right quadricep and missed the next two games. In 12 major-league spring games he batted .188 (6 for 32).
