Dodgers Place Carl Crawford on DL, Recall Enrique Hernandez
LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Dodgers today placed outfielder Carl Crawford on the 15-day disabled list with a right oblique strain and recalled infielder/outfielder Enrique Hernandez from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Hernandez, 23, batted .169 with two doubles, a homer and nine RBI in 16 games with Oklahoma City prior to his recall, appearing in games at shortstop (7), center field (4) and second base (3). The native of Puerto Rico tied for the club lead with six homers during Spring Training, batting .267 with two doubles and 12 RBI in 29 Cactus League games. He was acquired from the Marlins as part of a seven-player trade on Dec. 10, 2014 after seeing his first big league action last year and appearing in 42 games with Miami and Houston.
Crawford tripled in his only at-bat last night before being removed from the game in the third inning with right side tightness. He has a .245 batting average with a homer and three RBI in 15 games.
