from CBS Sportsline

News: Carl Crawford hit a liner off the left-field wall and circled the bases at Baltimore Thursday, but he was thrown out on a close play at the plate. When he leaped into the air in protest of the call, he landed awkwardly, tweaking his left knee. He remained in the game for another inning, but was replaced after the knee stiffened. "Strained knee, stiffness, no structural damage," manager Joe Maddon reported. "Day to day. If doesn't play tomorrow, he will play Saturday."

Analysis: Crawford will probably be replaced in the lineup by Russell Branyan, who would play right field, with Damon Hollins starting in left field if the superstar can't go. He entered Thursday's game leading the AL in steals, but Corey Patterson passed him.

Would you rather have an 0-0 night or an 0-4 night?

From Roto World:

Carl Crawford (knee) is expected to return to the lineup Saturday.
Crawford sat out Friday's game after injuring his knee while arguing with an umpire Thursday. "I thought I tore a ligament or something because of the way it felt," Crawford said. It may take Crawford a couple games to start running again. Jun. 3 - 10:51 am et
Source: Tampa Tribune


Hopefully he's fine... His personal statement there is a bit disconcerting.

Well realistically we'd rather see him with a day or two off then really messing it up and being out for a while... Bummer though!
