Might the Tampa Bay Rays be interested in bringing an old star home?
The Rays, beaten up in the outfield, might be looking for a bit of help. Former left-field all-star Carl Crawford, just released by the Los Angeles Dodgers, might be looking for a job. Could the two be right for each other once again?
Maybe. But Crawford was hitting only .185 when he was released. He’d be a short-stay option until Kevin Kiermaier, Steven Souza and Brandon Guyer were healthy again. Still, the Tampa Bay Times reports that the team would be receptive to Crawford.
How much does Crawford have left? He left Tampa Bay with 1,480 hits in 2010. In the six seasons since, he has only 451.
