      Giants' Brandon Crawford: Signs 6-year extension

      Crawford signed a six-year contract extension with the Giants on Tuesday. The Giants have rewarded Crawford following his offensive breakout in 2015, reportedly giving him $75 million and a full no-trade clause. Crawford more than doubled his previous career high in home runs from 2014 (10), smacking 21 while trimming his strikeout rate to 21.2 percent last season. While there's reason to think the power will decline in 2016 (16.2% HR/FB last season), Crawford is an excellent defender at a premium position, and even with regression built in, is an easy top-10 shortstop for 2016.

      Giants SS Brandon Crawford still out with calf injury

      Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford (calf) remains out of the lineup Tuesday against the Reds. He will miss a sixth straight start due to a lingering calf issue, though the matchup against lefty John Lamb may have played a part in the decision to hold Crawford out yet again. Crawford hit off a tee Sunday but his status for the rest of the week is uncertain. Ehire Adrianza starts again at shortstop for San Francisco. Crawford (calf) could play Wednesday, but Friday is a more likely return date, the San Francisco Chronicle's John Shea reports. It sounds like owners could get roughly two weeks from Crawford before the end of the season, although the Giants will likely be very cautious with him upon his return.
