Carl Crawford returns to Los Angeles for MRI on sprained left ankle.

Carl CrawfordDodgers left fielder Carl Crawford has returned to Los Angeles to meet with Dr. Neal ElAttrache. Crawford’s rehab from a sprained left ankle recently stalled at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona to the point where he could no longer hit or run.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said that Crawford underwent an MRI on his ankle but the team hasn’t announced the results or updated Crawford’s diagnosis.

“I’m not quite sure where the setback came,” Mattingly said. “He was running pretty well a couple weeks ago.”

Crawford sprained the ankle May 27 and has been on the 15-day disabled list since.
