Carl Crawford is set to meet with Dr. James Andrew for a second opinion on his ailing left elbow and that could mean Tommy John surgery is in his future. ESPN Boston is reporting that Bobby Valentine is still trying to make an appointment with Andrews.
This is not the end of the world for the Boston Red Sox. They have plenty of depth in the outfield with the likes of Ryan Sweeney and Ryan Kalish, once he is healthy, to roam left field. This injury may lead to Crawford being a huge bust, but that does not mean the Red Sox will be irrelevant in September due to one injury.
