Crawford makes spring debut for Dodgers

The SportsXchange

Carl Crawford made his awaited Cactus League debut for the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.

Crawford started the game batting leadoff and served as a designated hitter in the Dodgers' split-squad game against the Brewers.

He went 0-for-2 in his first two at-bats.

He was acquired by the Dodgers last August in the trade with the Red Sox two days after he underwent Tommy John elbow surgery.

His return was delayed when he developed a nerve irritation in his left elbow two weeks ago.

He had been serving as designated hitter in Minor League games for the past four days.
