Crawford progressing, expected to swing today

FORT MYERS, Fla. Left fielder Carl Crawford, who has been slowed in his rehab from left wrist surgery in mid-January, is progressing. He was expected to swing in the batting cage, throw, and take 20 bunts today.

He feels really good about where he is right now, manager Bobby Valentine said. He thinks he could play in a game right now, if you talk to Carl. He feels that good. His wrist is no problem at all. And he has resided in the fact that there is a program that the medical staff has him on that hes going to stay on religiously. And hes been great with that.

When the Red Sox head north next week, the likelihood is that Crawford will stay in Fort Myers.

I did talk with him about it, Valentine said. Im probably thinking hes going to stay here. Stay where its warm as much as possible and get the most productive days in. Were working on staff that will be here with him.
