Crawford went 2-for-3 with a double, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 10-2 drubbing of the Phillies. It was Crawford's first homer in August, coming 53 at-bats into the month. The 30-year-old has reached 10 homers and 60 RBI in each of his last four seasons. Outside of the modest power and run production, it has been a down year for the slugging shortstop (.229/.279/.368).
Crawford is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Nationals, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Crawford will head to the bench after going 0-for-4 with a walk in the Giants' 4-2 win in Game 1. Kelby Tomlinson will take over at shortstop for the series finale.
Crawford is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks, Jody Jackson of Fox Sports Arizona reports. Crawford has started each of the team's previous 13 games and will be replaced in the lineup by Kelby Tomlinson as the Giants close out their weekend series against Patrick Corbin and the Diamondbacks. Crawford is in the midst of a career-worst year, as he currently holds a meager .227/.275/.366 slash line on the season.
Crawford went 1-for-4 with his ninth home run of the season in Friday's loss to the Dodgers. The home run was Crawford's first since the All-Star break, but the shortstop has been seeing the ball better in the second half, batting .269 with eight extra-base hits over his previous 14 contests. The 30-year-old's overall production has been subpar this year (.232/.273/.384), but his recent success at the plate combined with his placement in the heart of the Giants' order put him back on the map in deeper formats.
Crawford went 2-for-4 with a double and a three runs scored in Tuesday's win over Pittsburgh. Crawford's season has been a disappointing one so far (.235/.276/.381), but he has been picking things up at the plate following the All-Star break, batting .295 (13-for-44) with seven doubles and six RBI in 12 games. The 30-year-old has been able to maintain deep-league fantasy value at the shortstop position with 51 RBI this season, but he would be doing his fantasy owners a big favor if he could get hot and up his batting average in the second half.
