The Los Angeles Dodgers outfield situation got a little more interesting on Thursday as Carl Crawford was activated from the disabled list. Crawford spent six weeks on the DL after spraining his ankle and in his absence Matt Kemp took over in left field.
Crawford spoke about his return to the team and said he doesn’t want to stir anything up while the team in winning. He also spoke about the team’s rise to first place in his absence and how he wants to contribute in any way. The Dodgers’ outfield was a focal point earlier this season after Kemp and Crawford voiced their opinions on playing time and position changes.
During Crawford’s stint on the DL, the Dodgers managed to make up a 9.5 game deficit to the San Francisco Giants and have alternated their time in first place of the NL West since catching their rival.
