Crawford, League reunite with club for workouts

Crawford, League reunite with club for workouts

LOS ANGELES -- Outfielder Carl Crawford and reliever Brandon League rejoined the Dodgers for Wednesday's workout, and Matt Kemp might join them Thursday.

While the Dodgers were winning two games in Australia, Crawford remained in Arizona on paternity leave, playing in Minor League games. He and his fiancée had a son.

League, who was one of three pitchers exempt from the 25-man roster, appeared in Minor League games. He said he was able to pitch on back-to-back days and even in multiple innings one day.

Kemp has been progressing steadily in his rehab from ankle and shoulder surgeries. He is eligible to come off the disabled list April 4, which remains a possibility. He is not eligible to play in the exhibition Freeway Series, which starts Thursday night.

Prospect Zach Lee threw a bullpen session after pitching in the exhibition game against Team Australia. If the Dodgers need another starting pitcher, it could be Lee. He is not on the 40-man roster, but the loss of relievers Seth Rosin and Javy Guerra on waivers Wednesday leaves the Dodgers with 39 players on the roster.
