Carl Crawford Exits Game With Right Shoulder Injury

Rays' All Star left fielder Carl Crawford left tonight's game with what is being called a bruised right shoulder. He is being listed as day-to-day. Crawford injured the shoulder on a diving catch to end the fourth inning. Ben Zobrist replaced him in left field.  Expect the Rays to be overly cautious with CC, who entered the game hitting .336/.397/.457 with 22 steals. As we saw tonight, I'd expect Ben Zobrist to benefit most in the playing time category.

This injury comes on the heels of the news about Pat Burrell visiting a specialist for a possible back injury. Good luck to both players; we need them.
