Crawford (finger) remains out of the lineup Saturday, CSN Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was doubtful to play Saturday, so this comes as no surprise. It sounds as though he has been progressing with his recovery, so he should be expected back in the coming days. Ehire Adrianza will start at shortstop again and bat eighth Saturday.

Crawford (finger) is considered doubtful for Saturday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

It sounds like Sunday is the earliest we could see Crawford, who suffered a dislocated left pinkie during Tuesday's game. He did some throwing Thursday and took dry swings Friday, so he's moving in the right direction and appears primed to contribute over the final week of the regular season.

Crawford (finger) remains out of the lineup Friday in San Diego.

EDGE Analysis

He will miss his third game in a row after dislocating the pinkie finger on his glove hand. It sounds like he is steadily improving, and it would not be surprising if he returned at some point during this weekend's series. Ehire Adrianza will get the start at shortstop and hit eighth in Crawford's place Friday.

Manager Bruce Bochy said Crawford (finger) was "much better" Thursday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford is out again Thursday after suffering a dislocated left pinkie finger during Tuesday's game. He will play catch Thursday to keep his arm in shape but that will be the extent of his activity. With that, a Friday return seems like a stretch, but it sounds like Crawford has a chance to make it back onto the field this weekend.

Crawford (finger) remains out of the lineup Thursday against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford dislocated his left pinkie finger in Tuesday's contest, and it seems that the Giants will give him another day to get it back into game shape. Ehire Adrianza will take over at shortstop in his stead once again.

Crawford (pinkie) will sit out Wednesday's game, but will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis going forward, CSN Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic reports.

EDGE Analysis

After leaving Tuesday's game with a dislocated left pinkie suffered on a slide into third base, his finger was popped back into place. Crawford acknowledged that his finger will be swollen and sore Wednesday, and manager Bruce Bochy indicated that Ehire Adrianza will get at least one start at shortstop while Crawford heals. Joe Panik apparently missed three games with the same injury last year, but the fact that Crawford throws right-handed and the Giants are battling for a playoff spot might allow him to miss less than three games.

Crawford left Tuesday's game with a dislocated left pinky finger.

EDGE Analysis

It is unclear how much time Crawford will miss with the injury. For what it's worth, he bats left-handed and throws right-handed, so after the injury is tended to, it shouldn't affect his ability to play the field. He suffered the injury on a rough slide into third base in the second inning of Tuesday's game while trying to go first to third after singling. Ehire Adrianza, who moved over to shortstop Tuesday, figures to fill in if Crawford misses further time.

Crawford left Tuesday's game in the second inning with an apparent hand/wrist injury after a hard slide at third base, CSN Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic reports.

EDGE Analysis

He tried to go first to third on a Brandon Belt hit after singling in the second inning and was gunned out at third base while also injuring himself during the slide. Joe Panik entered the game at second base and Ehire Adrianza moved from second base to shortstop. His status will be updated when the team provides an official diagnosis of the injury.

Crawford was moved back down to sixth in the batting order Friday, going 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI in an 8-2 win over St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford had spent some time over the past couple of weeks batting cleanup for a struggling Giants offense. He didn't play his way out of the role, Hunter Pence and Brandon Belt have just been swinging hot bats of late, affording manager Bruce Bochy the luxury of putting his core pieces back in their usual lineup slots. Moving out of the cleanup spot is never a positive for a player's fantasy value, but Crawford accrued the majority of his 80 RBI batting fifth, sixth or seventh this season, so his value won't take a big dip, especially with so many solid on-base options batting in front of the All-Star shortstop.

Crawford is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford didn't receive a day off the entire month of August, so this appears to just be a long overdue maintenance day. Ehire Adrianza will start at shortstop in his place Sunday afternoon.
