Dr. James Andrews is considered to be one of the best orthopedic surgeons in the United States, which is why so many baseball teams send their players to him for evaluations.
However, teams do not usually get good news when they send one of their players to Andrews. In many cases, it results in a player needing surgery.
The Boston Red Sox will be sending Carl Crawford to have his elbow evaluated by Dr. Andrews. Based on recent history, this is not a good sign for the Red Sox or Crawford, since so many of his former patients have needed surgery.
If recent history serves as a guide, then it seems likely that Crawford will be going under the knife soon.
