Crawford went 3-for-4 with a run scored, three RBI and a double in Saturday's spring game against the Padres. Crawford started spring off slowly (0-for-11) but appears to be heating up with Opening Day drawing closer. The 32-year-old slashed .254/.325/.394 with 14 home runs over 151 games in 2018 and is set for another season as the Giants' starting shortstop.
Crawford went 1-for-3 with an RBI against the Rockies on Sunday. Crawford finally picked up his first base knock of camp, breaking an 0-for-11 skid at the dish. He drove in a run in the sixth inning on a single to center field. The UCLA product slashed .254/.325/.394 with 14 homers and 54 RBI in 151 games during the 2018 campaign.
Crawford is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Padres, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Crawford has started the last six games at shortstop, hitting .250/.308/.417 with a homer and two RBI over that stretch. He'll sit for Wednesday's series finale as manager Bruce Bochy gives the veteran shortstop some rest with the Giants out of the playoff picture. Abiatal Avelino is starting at shortstop and hitting eighth in place of Crawford.
Crawford went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 9-2 loss to St. Louis. Crawford was the lone bright spot for the Giants in an otherwise lifeless showing against starter Miles Mikolas. The 31-year-old needed exactly one extra game (four plate appearances) to match last year's mark of 14 homers. Crawford's .256/.322/.397 slash line is right on par with his 2017 marks, as he's providing another season of modest production at the shortstop position.
Crawford went 2-for-4 with the Giants' lone RBI in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to Atlanta. Crawford was dealing with a balky knee last week, but he has since started three consecutive contests. The 31-year-old has taken a step back in the RBI category (51 through 135 games), but he should get a last-ditch opportunity to pad his total while batting cleanup for a Giants lineup that is without several of its Opening Day starters.
