Crawford was traded to Seattle on Monday along with Carlos Santana in exchange for Jean Segura, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
There are reportedly other pieces of the deal yet to be disclosed. Formerly a very highly rated prospect, Crawford has yet to put things together at the big-league level, recording a .214/.333/.358 slash line, though he's still just 23 and has appeared in just 72 games. He improved to .255/.369/.479 over his last 42 games after an early season swing adjustment, suggesting that he's not far off from living up to his promise. He'll have a clearer path to playing time in Seattle and could thrive in a regular role, though his carrying tools are defense and the ability to take a walk, so he may help the Mariners more than he helps most fantasy teams.
Crawford (shoulder) has six appearances as a pinch hitter since his last start Sept. 19.
Crawford was dealing with shoulder soreness for the back half of September but has been regularly used to pinch hit over the last couple of weeks. The 23-year-old is unlikely to be called upon for a high-leverage spot given his .214/.319/.393 slash line for the season.
Crawford is dealing with shoulder soreness, though he is available to hit, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The issue apparently bothers Crawford more when he throws, leaving him to hit and run off the bench should an opportunity arise. Given the youngster's .214/.318/.384 slash line through 43 games with the big club this season, he likely won't be manager Gabe Kapler's first choice should the Phillies need a pinch hitter.
Crawford went 1-for-3 with a triple, three RBI and a run scored in Monday's 9-4 loss to New York.
Crawford delivered a three-run triple in the fifth inning to cut the deficit to one, but the Mets would pull away in the ninth to take the first game of the series. Since being promoted from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sept. 4, the 23-year-old has gone 5-for-13 with three extra-base hits and four RBI.
Crawford was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic Philadelphia reports.
Crawford was summoned back to the majors to provide additional infield depth with Maikel Franco sidelined due to a sore wrist. The 23-year-old has struggled during his time with the Phillies over the past two seasons, hitting a combined .202/.332/.319 across 57 games, so he doesn't figure to see much action down the stretch with the team in the playoff hunt.
