Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford was forced to leave Saturday's game against the Colorado Rockies with a left hamstring cramp. Crawford doubled to left field, his second double of the day, but pulled up coming into second base. Crawford was seen grabbing his left leg, and was attended to by the trainers before exiting the game.
Crawford missed two games on April 30 and May 1 with a tight right hamstring, but he clearly was feeling pain in his left leg this time around.
He does have something of an injury history beyond that, having Tommy John surgery on his left elbow last August. He was also held out of the starting lineup on Friday after tweaking his back making a diving catch on Thursday.
Crawford has been playing well, and is currently hitting .301/.358/.470. If he misses any additional time, the Dodgers will definitely be in a bad way: Matt Kemp hit the 15-day disabled list on Friday with a right hamstring strain. It's just more bad news for the 23-30 Dodgers, who are in last place in the NL West division.
