ATLANTA — Carl Crawford‘s minor league rehabilitation stint has been delayed by a travel issue. Crawford, who’s on the 15-day disabled list with a sore lower back, was supposed to be in the starting lineup for Triple-A Oklahoma City today.
Carl Crawford has yet to arrive in OKC due to travel issues. Bill Haselman says he might be available to pinch hit, but unsure.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said “there were some travel issues,” but declined to elaborate. Crawford was with the Dodgers in Atlanta on Monday and was scheduled to fly to Oklahoma City today.
Crawford is eligible to be activated Sunday, when the Dodgers wrap up a three-game series against the Rockies in Denver.
