Crawford to play in Minors on Sunday

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford will begin a Minor League rehab assignment on Sunday, manager Don Mattingly confirmed on Friday.

Crawford, on the disabled list since June 2 with a strained left hamstring, will rehab with Class A Rancho Cucamonga. The plan is for Crawford to play two rehab games in the outfield and two more as a designated hitter.

"Carl seems to pick it up right away, so we'll see," Mattingly said before Friday's game against the Phillies.

Crawford injured his hamstring running out a double on June 1 in Colorado. In 51 games this season, the former All-Star is hitting .301 with five home runs and 13 RBIs. He leads the Dodgers with 32 runs scored.

The Dodgers have used seven players in left field since Crawford went on the DL.
