Crawford went 3-for-4 with a walk and two runs in a 10-7 win against the Mets on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Though productive on the whole, August has been an odd month for Crawford; he's delivered six multi-hit efforts among 16 games, including a seven-hit night, and yet has improved his stat line only nominally thanks to seven hitless games in that same span. His .784 OPS is a near clone of last year's .782 mark, but he seems quite unlikely to crack 20 homers again and provides minimal speed, so most of Crawford's fantasy value stems from his RBI -- he's tied for second among shortstops with 74.

Crawford went 2-for-4 with a triple and three RBI in the Giants' 6-5 loss at the hands of the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

The triple was Crawford's eighth of the season, putting him into a tie for second for most triples in the MLB this season. The solid night raised Crawford's RBI total to 74, best among NL shortstops ahead of fellow NL West stars Trevor Story and Corey Seager. He's now hitting .271/.338/.439 on the year.

Crawford went 2-for-4 and provided all the game's offense with a solo shot to beat the Marlins 1-0 on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

After tying the NL record with seven hits in Monday's 14-inning game, the shortstop added two more on Wednesday and finished the series 9-for-16. Crawford's fourth-inning blast was his 11th of the season and boosted his RBI total to 71 for the year, third-most among shortstops behind only the Rockies' Trevor Story (72) and the Astros' Carlos Correa (74).

Crawford had a day to remember at the plate on Monday, going 7-for-8 with two RBI and a run scored against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford's seven-hit night raised his batting average a full 13 points in one game. The seven hits are more than he had come up with in his previous 11 games combined. Crawford has 35 extra-base hits on the season, including 10 home runs, to go along with 70 RBI.

Crawford went 2-for-4 with a homer, a walk, two runs and three RBI in Tuesday's 13-8 loss to the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford proved to be no worse for the wear after sitting out two games with a hand injury, backing up a fourth-inning solo homer with a two-run single in the fifth. The slugging shortstop has managed just 10 long balls after launching 21 last year, but he's well on pace to top last season's career-high total of 84 RBI thanks to a consistent role in the heart of a talented Giants lineup.

Crawford (hand) is back in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

After sitting out of the Giants' last two games due to a bruised hand, Crawford will get back into the lineup for the series opener in Philadelphia. His return will move new addition Eduardo Nunez to third base and bump him down to ninth in the order while Crawford bats fifth.

Crawford (hand) is available to pinch hit in Sunday's outing against the Nationals, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area

EDGE Analysis

With this latest news, Crawford is expected to fully return for Tuesday's game against Philadelphia. Crawford has been rather subpar at the plate in recent contests and has gone just 5-for-22 over the last seven days.

Crawford (hand) remains out of the lineup Sunday against the Nationals, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford was given the day off Saturday due to a bruised hand suffered Friday, and will sit his second straight contest as a result of the ailment. It doesn't sound like something that will represent a long-term concern, and with the team off Monday, sitting Crawford on Sunday will give him an extra day to rest. Look for the regular shortstop to return to action for Tuesday's opener against the Phillies, but his status is worth checking up on just to be safe.

Crawford is out of the lineup Saturday against the Nationals due to a bruised left hand, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Apparently, Crawford jammed his hand in his first at-bat Friday and needs at least one day to rest up. Eduardo Nunez will take over at shortstop and lead off with Denard Span (quad) also on the bench. Crawford is batting .196/.255/.314 without a home run since the All-Star break.

Crawford went 3-for-5 with a two-run triple and two runs scored in Tuesday's 9-7 victory over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford and pitcher Matt Cain were the only Giants to pick up extra-base hits in what was otherwise a methodical but effective performance by the Giants offense. Hopefully this performance gets the shortstop going, as he had failed to drive in a run in any of his previous nine games. His .158 isolated power is a far cry from last season's .205 mark.
