Valentine: Crawford ‘just about ready'


SARASOTA, Fla.Carl Crawford continues to improve after the setback he experienced on his surgically repaired left wrist.

Crawford had a full days activity, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said after Sunday afternoons win over the Orioles.

Hes feeling good about his throwing. And hes just about ready. We dont want to say what day. Its a very monitored program hes on.

The next step for Crawford would be to resume swinging a bat at a ball on a tee.

Valentine said previously having Crawford in the lineup on Opening Day is probably not realistic.
