Brandon Crawford has been placed on the 10-day injured list due to a right calf strain, retroactive to April 30.
Crawford hits the IL after finding the outfield seats for the fourth time this season on Saturday. The veteran has struggled to open up the year, slashing .169/.244/.352 through 71 at-bats. Thairo Estrada will likely be the everyday shortstop with Crawford sidelined.
Brandon Crawford went 1-for-2 at the plate for the Giants Saturday, belting a solo home run in a 16-11 loss to the Padres.
Crawford has not been very consistent at the plate for the Giants, picking up hits in four of his last 11 games for the club. The veteran shortstop is not a consistent option in any format for fantasy managers currently, batting just .169 with four home runs, three stolen bases, six runs scored, and 10 runs batted in so far this season.
Brandon Crawford went 1-for-4 with a stolen base on Thursday as the Giants were defeated by the Cardinals 6-0.
Crawford managed to swipe his third bag of the season off of St. Louis starter Miles Mikolas, and he has already tripled his 2022 total in that category. Hitting wise, Crawford has continued to struggle mightily early in the 2023 campaign, and he will carry a .159/.237/.304 slash line into Saturday's affair with the Padres.
San Francisco Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford is not in Wednesday's starting lineup against the Cardinals.
With the Giants using plenty of right-handed bats against lefty Steven Matz, Crawford will take a seat Wednesday. He is off to a very slow start this season, hitting just .154 with three homers, two stolen bases, and a .544 OPS across 72 trips to the plate. Thairo Estrada will take over at short and hit second Wednesday night.
Brandon Crawford went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Mets.
Crawford started the game with a bang on Saturday, knocking his third homer of the year in the first inning. It was a welcoming sight for the veteran, who hadn't recorded a hit since April 14. The shortstop's slash line now sits at .158/.250/.333 through 57 at-bats this year. He should not be trusted for fantasy purposes.
