  • Cardinals' Brandon Crawford: Back in lineup Tuesday

    Crawford (hand) is starting at shortstop and batting eighth for the Cardinals in Tuesday's exhibition game versus the Cubs, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Crawford missed a little time with some soreness in his hand after being hit by a pitch, but he's on track for Opening Day now after getting one final tune-up Tuesday. The veteran infielder is poised to serve as Masyn Winn's backup at shortstop in 2024.

  • Cardinals' Brandon Crawford: Takes batting practice

    Crawford (hand) took batting practice Monday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    As long as he doesn't experience any lingering effects with the hand injury he suffered just over a week ago, Crawford will return to play in the Cardinals' exhibition finale Tuesday against the Cubs. Assuming health, he's slated to serve as a backup shortstop for the Cards this season.

  • Cardinals' Brandon Crawford: Could be back this weekend

    Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said Thursday that Crawford (hand) is aiming to return to game action this weekend, Lynn Worthy of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Crawford hasn't played since being hit on the hand/wrist area by a pitch Sunday, but his return to the Grapefruit League lineup looks to be imminent. The 37-year-old is slated to back up Masyn Winn at shortstop for the Cardinals this season.

  • Cardinals' Brandon Crawford: Targeting return later in March

    Crawford is hoping to be ready to play in Grapefruit League games by mid-to-late March, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Crawford officially inked his one-year, $2 million contract with the Cardinals on Tuesday and will ramp up on the back fields for a bit before being thrown into game action. He shouldn't need too many spring at-bats in order to get ready for Opening Day. Crawford has indicated a willingness to play some second and/or third base for St. Louis, if needed, although president of baseball operations John Mozeliak has indicated the plan is to use Crawford only as a backup at shortstop, Brenden Schaeffer of KMOV reports.

  • Cardinals' Brandon Crawford: Signs on with St. Louis

    Crawford signed a contract with the Cardinals on Monday, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    The longtime San Francisco Giant will head to St. Louis, where he will back up youngster Masyn Winn at shortstop. Crawford -- who turned 37 last month -- remains a good defender but has managed a lowly .216/.293/.332 over the last two seasons. The addition of Crawford could indicate some skepticism of Tommy Edman's (wrist) readiness for Opening Day, as he had been projected to be Winn's backup.

  • Brandon Crawford: Plans to play in 2024

    Crawford's agent, Joel Wolfe, said Tuesday that his client intends to continue his playing career in 2024, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Crawford batted just .194/.273/.314 over 320 plate appearances with the Giants in 2023 and will turn 37 years old in January, but Wolfe told reporters at the GM Meetings in Arizona that "several teams have called" him about the veteran shortstop since he officially became a free agent earlier this week. Wolfe went on to note that Crawford "would consider" playing second or third base, so perhaps he'd be open to operating in a utility role in 2024 if such an opportunity were to present itself.

  • Giants' Brandon Crawford: Returns for season finale

    Crawford (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and is starting at shortstop and batting leadoff Sunday against the Dodgers.

    The 36-year-old landed on the shelf with a hamstring strain Sept. 21 but will rejoin the lineup for the final game of the regular season, and potentially his 13-year career with the Giants. Crawford has a .197/.276/.319 slash line in 93 games this season and is scheduled to become a free agent this winter.

  • Giants' Brandon Crawford: Expected to return for finale

    Crawford (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Sunday's game against the Dodgers, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Crawford was placed on the IL on Sept. 21 with a right hamstring strain, but he's pushing to return for the season finale. Assuming he endures no setbacks with his hamstring and is activated Sunday, he could be making the final start of his 13-year tenure with the Giants. The 36-year-old is set to become a free agent this winter, and while he has yet to decide whether he wants to continue playing in 2024, if he chooses to forgo retirement he likely won't have much of a market after producing a lowly .595 OPS over 316 plate appearances thus far in 2023. Marco Luciano and Casey Schmitt figure to be the top options to replace Crawford at shortstop next season.

  • Giants' Brandon Crawford: Lands on 10-day IL

    Crawford was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a right hamstring strain, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Crawford suffered the injury Wednesday in what could wind up being his final game in a Giants uniform. The 36-year-old impending free agent is eligible to be activated Oct. 1, but that is the last day of the regular season and it's unclear whether he'd be healthy anyway. Marco Luciano and Tyler Fitzgerald have both been brought up from Triple-A Sacramento to cover at shortstop down the stretch. Paul DeJong was given his release.

  • Giants' Brandon Crawford: Exits with tight hamstring

    Crawford was removed from Wednesday's game in Arizona due to right hamstring tightness, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Crawford may have tweaked his hamstring on a second-inning groundout, as Paul DeJong took over at shortstop for the Giants before the bottom of the third. This could wind up being a season-ending injury for Crawford even if it proves to be relatively minor, as the Giants only have 10 games left to go and have probably fallen too far back in the NL wild-card standings.

  • Giants' Brandon Crawford: Hits rare home run

    Crawford went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in Sunday's 11-10 win over the Rockies.

    Crawford came through in a big way with a three-run blast off Matt Koch in the sixth for his seventh home run of the year and his first since Aug. 1. Crawford has just two extra-base hits in 40 plate appearances in September as he continues to hold down a part-time role. The 36-year-old has struggled to a slash line of .196/.276/.319 and will look to provide any spark he can as the Giants make a push for a wild card spot.

  • Giants' Brandon Crawford: Resting during nightcap

    Crawford will be on the bench for the evening portion of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Crawford went 0-for-2 with a pair of walks and a run scored in the afternoon game. The 36-year-old won't be asked to start two games in one day, so it will instead be Paul DeJong who handles shortstop in the nightcap.

  • Giants' Brandon Crawford: Out against southpaw

    Crawford is not in the lineup for Wednesday's contest against the Guardians, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    He'll yield to Paul DeJong at shortstop versus a lefty, as Crawford often does. Crawford has been helpless versus both righties (.584 OPS) and lefties (.589 OPS) this season.

  • Giants' Brandon Crawford: Sitting against lefty

    Crawford is absent from the lineup Friday versus the Rockies.

    Paul DeJong will cover shortstop and bat eighth against left-hander Ty Blach. Crawford is slashing just .200/.271/.320 in 281 total plate appearances this year and should continue to sit versus southpaws.

  • Giants' Brandon Crawford: Taking seat against southpaw

    Crawford is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

  • Giants' Brandon Crawford: Sitting Saturday

    Crawford isn't in the Giants' lineup Saturday against the Padres, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Left-hander Blake Snell's presence on the mound for San Diego will force the lefty-hitting Crawford to the bench. Paul DeJong will start at shortstop instead and bat seventh.

  • Giants' Brandon Crawford: Activated, in lineup Friday

    Crawford (forearm) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Crawford will start at shortstop and bat eighth against the Padres following a two-week absence to heal a minor left forearm strain. The 36-year-old has slashed just .194/.264/.318 across 270 plate appearances when healthy this season.
