Carl Crawford will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday, Dylan Hernandez of the L.A. Times reports. Crawford has been out since May 28 with a sprained left ankle.

Crawford’s recovery from his injury has been very slow, as manager Don Mattingly referred to it as a “plateau” several weeks ago. But if his rehab games go well, he could return to the Dodgers before the All-Star break.

The 32-year-old veteran is slashing .267/.293/.400 with four home runs, 18 RBI, and nine stolen bases in 157 plate appearances on the season.

    Bill – what’s with you reporting everyone slashing? You should start a serial killer or pirate blog. I wish Carl slashed a little with the Red Sox.

      To me, a slash line is a good way to eyeball how a player is hitting and appeals to most people. It’s not too complicated for those who aren’t into Sabermetrics, and it’s not too mundane for those who prefer the advanced stuff.

    I’ll bet the Dodgers would like to slash some of that 20+ mil per they have to pay him for that .267 BA.
