Dodgers | Carl Crawford injury not serious

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said OF Carl Crawford's (shoulder) shoulder injury isn't expected to be serious, and no MRI exams or scans are planned "but that could change." "It sounds like he had a checked swing and felt a little something in his shoulder. ... He stopped right there," Mattingly said. "He had a planned day off tomorrow, and we expect him to play the day after."

Fantasy Tip: Good news for Crawford owners. But it reminds us that he's very injury-prone. Andre Ethier is a decent late-rounds stab to shore up your outfield depth if Crawford misses time during the season.
