Top Prospect Crawford returns to action

ATLANTA -- The Phillies need some good news and they got a little on Wednesday.

Top prospect J.P. Crawford returned to action with Class A Clearwater and went 2-for-3 with a home run, three RBIs, a run scored and a walk in a 7-3 victory over Brevard County.

He had opened the season on the disabled list with a strained left oblique.

Crawford is the organization's No. 1 prospect and the No. 22 prospect in baseball, according to MLBPipeline.com.
