Crawford is dealing with a stiff ankle, but was able to make a pinch-hit appearance in the seventh inning Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times' Dylan Hernandez reports.

This makes sense, as it seemed strange that Crawford was replaced in the lineup Wednesday by Scott Van Slyke with a righty on the mound. The Dodgers have a day off Thursday, so hopefully Crawford will be able to rest up and get back in the lineup Friday against the Rockies.

Crawford is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners.

It's kind of a weird spot to sit Crawford against a righty, Taijuan Walker, considering the Dodgers are opting to give Scott Van Slyke, a noted lefty killer, the start in left. It's possible Crawford just needed a day off and Van Slyke was the only healthy option with Andre Ethier starting in right field with Yasiel Puig banged up. Make sure to check back on Crawford's status heading into Friday's game against the Rockies.

Crawford is 5-for-25 so far this spring and still appears to project as the everyday left fielder.

Crawford has been hitting second in the order behind Jimmy Rollins this spring, so that could impact his stolen base totals. He's also likely to sit against some lefties despite hitting .321 against them last year.

Crawford would appear to be in line to be the team's everyday left fielder and leadoff man given the trades of Dee Gordon and Matt Kemp this winter.Injuries and the glut of talent in last year's outfield limited Crawford to 343 at-bats, but with a strong second half (.333/.374/.462), perhaps there's some life left in his legs and bat after all.
