Dodgers | Carl Crawford allowed to throw without limitations

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford is continuing to build arm strength in his recovery from Tommy John surgery last fall. Trainers have cleared him to bypass the cutoff man to throw to a base when the situation calls for it. Opponents haven't been afraid to test the outfielder on balls hit to him this season.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford doesn't have the strongest arm in baseball, but this should improve LA's defensive efficiency ever so slightly in the long run. More importantly for fantasy owners, it's another positive sign that helps to mitigate long-term concerns about the health of Crawford's arm as it relates to his performance in the batter's box. A setback may still be possible, but his owners have to feel good about drafting him.
