It looks like it's going to take a little longer for him to redeem himself. The Boston Globe reports that manager Bobby Valentine is thinking Crawford will be out for the first few weeks of the regular season as he recovers from left-wrist surgery he had Jan. 17.
"I wouldn't be surprised if Carl's a few weeks into the season before he's really ready,'' Valentine said, the Globe reports. "I wouldn't be surprised nor disappointed if that's what nature dictates is his healing process. When he's ready and he's healed, he is going to be a welcome addition to our team, whenever that is."
