DENVER -- Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford will begin an injury rehab assignment Saturday for Triple-A Albuquerque, manager Don Mattingly said Friday.

Crawford has been on the disabled list since May 27 with a sprained left ankle. Mattingly said it hasn't been determined how long Crawford will play with Albuquerque.

"Five or six games, at least that," Mattingly said. "Through Detroit [Wednesday] for sure, then we'll see where everything is. It's been a while, over a month for Carl. But when Carl is ready, he'll be back."

Since Crawford has been out, Matt Kemp has been the everyday left fielder and the club has moved into first place.

Mattingly said Justin Turner, who is on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring, is rehabbing at the club's Arizona facility and isn't ready for games yet.
