Carl Crawford Undergoes Left Wrist Surgery

Uh oh.

Red Sox outfielder underwent surgery on his left wrist in Arizona on Tuesday after experiencing soreness toward the end of the season, and again during offseason workouts.

“It was consistent with soreness he had periodically over the last several years, but more concerning to Carl given the time of year he was feeling it,” said Cherington.

Cherington added that Crawford could be ready by Opening Day, but may miss some time during the early part of the season.

Crawford was looking for a fresh start this season, but that’s pretty impossible at this point given the timing of the surgery.

The injury leaves the Red Sox with just three healthy major-league-ready outfielders: Jacoby Ellsbury, Ryan Sweeney, and Darnell McDonald. Ryan Kalish is recovering from left shoulder surgery, while Mike Aviles is a converted infielder.

Meanwhile, the Yankees recently made major movies to acquire Michael Pineda and Hiroki Kuroda. Ugh.
