Carl Crawford was not able to swing a bat today and has resumed taking medication after experiencing a setback in his recovery from left wrist surgery.
Crawford told Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe that the setback occurred when he was practicing bunting Wednesday and the medication is for inflammation in the wrist.
As recently as last week Crawford was hopeful about making a speedy enough recovery to be in the Opening Day lineup, but those odds now seem pretty long. Initially when Crawford went under the knife in January the expectation was that he’d miss at least the first few weeks of the season, leaving Cody Ross and Ryan Sweeney as the Red Sox’s starting corner outfielders.
