ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Tampa Bay all-star left-fielder Carl Crawford left Thursday's game against San Diego because of a sore left shoulder and could be out of the lineup for a couple days.
"I don't think it's anything long term," Rays manager Joe Maddon said after a 5-3 victory over the Padres. "He probably will not play (Friday). I don't know about his availability."
Crawford grounded out in the first inning Thursday and left one inning later. He hurt the shoulder making a throw to the plate Wednesday.
"Right now my shoulder is a little sore," Crawford said after Thursday's game. "We just want to treat it and try to get it well. I tried to get it loose and get ready for the game, but it was one of those things it wasn't felling better so I just came out."
