Carl Crawford played in his fourth and final rehab game as part of the star outfielder's rehab assignment with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, the Los Angeles Dodgers High-A affiliate, on Wednesday night.
Crawford, slotted as the team's designated hitter after playing consecutive games in left field, went 1-for-3 with a walk and stolen base. In his four rehab games with the Quakes, Crawford hit 5-13 with a walk, two runs scored and three runs batted in.
Crawford felt ready to return to the major leagues after Tuesday's game, but the Dodgers planned on him playing at least four rehab games to be safe.
Nonetheless, the 31-year-old outfielder already felt as if he's ready to rejoin his teammates at the major league level, telling me his rehab is complete and that he'll join the Dodgers in San Francisco.
Los Angeles plays the final game of their current series against the Rockies on Thursday at Coors Field, before flying to San Francisco for a series against the Giants that begins on Friday.
