Brandon Crawford SS SF 23 Hrs

Crawford will miss Thursday's game due to a sore shoulder, Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Crawford said his shoulder has been bothering him for the past four-to-five days, likely explaining why he was held out of the lineup Wednesday as well. The issue primarily presents problems for Crawford only when he throws, so he would still seem to be available off the bench Thursday as a pinch-hitting option.
