Crawford is not in the lineup against the Rockies on Wednesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford will get his first day off since June 17 following Tuesday's 14-inning game against Colorado. The shortstop has recorded one hit in each of the past four contests and is currently hitting .238/.281/.379 with six home runs and 37 RBI on the year.

Crawford returned to the lineup after a scheduled day off and went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run and three RBI in a 7-5 loss to the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

If fantasy owners feel like they've seen this stat line from Crawford recently, it is because they have. The shortstop posted an identical stat line in the first game of a four-game set with the Rockies as he did on the final day of the series. The trip to Coors woke up Crawford's bat, and he will look to carry that success into Atlanta on Monday.

Crawford is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rockies, Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford will rest as the Giants load up on right-handed bats to face southpaw Kyle Freeland on Saturday. Kelby Tomlinson replaces him at shortstop, leading off for San Francisco, but expect Crawford to rejoin the starting nine for Sunday's series finale.

Crawford went 3-for-5 with a double and a three-run home run in Thursday's 10-9 loss to the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old was mired in a 12-game slump to begin the month of June (7-for-38), but a trip to hitter-friendly Coors Field was just what the doctor ordered. He may not be as exciting as some of the young shortstops to enter the league over the past couple of seasons, but with five homers and 29 RBI through 53 games, Crawford is quietly putting up another solid campaign as a run-producing fantasy shortstop.

Crawford is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the Giants facing a left-handed starter (Nik Turley) on Sunday and a scheduled off day looming Monday, Crawford will get an extended rest by sitting out the series finale. The time off could probably do Crawford some good, as he's gone 6-for-35 (.171 average) at the plate while starting the past 10 games. Kelby Tomlinson will swap in for Crawford at shortstop.

Crawford went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and four RBI during Sunday's loss to Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Since returning from the disabled list May 11, Crawford sports a .272/.307/.420 slash line with two homers, 16 RBI and 10 runs over 22 games. Those are respectable numbers for a middle infielder, and Crawford probably has room for improvement after posting a .777 OPS with 168 RBI over the previous two seasons.

Crawford is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Nationals, Alec Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite collecting hits in each of his last three games, Crawford will head to the bench for Tuesday's contest. Rookie Christian Arroyo will take over at shortstop while Eduardo Nunez mans the hot corner.

Crawford went 2-for-4 with his first stolen base of the season in Thursday's loss to the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford isn't known for his speed on the basepaths, but he will chip in a handful of steals over the course of the season and he provided owners with one Thursday. Despite a lack of counting stats early on, the veteran shortstop holds value due to his regular placement in the middle of the Giants' batting order.

Crawford went 3-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Friday's comeback win over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Friday's multi-hit effort brought the shortstop's batting average up to .276 on the year. Even though his average and slugging percentage (.438) sit near last year's marks, Crawford hasn't been as useful in fantasy as he was last year due to a significant drop in RBI production. RBI -- like wins for pitchers -- are dependent on others' production in conjunction with the player, and the Giants have been one of the worst run-producing teams in the majors this season. The recent return of Denard Span to the top of the lineup has provided a spark for San Francisco, so his presence may lead to more at-bats for Crawford with men on base.

Crawford is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Dodgers, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Bruce Bochy is employing a righty-heavy lineup with stud southpaw Clayton Kershaw toeing the rubber for Los Angeles, so Crawford will get the day off. Christian Arroyo will slide over to shortstop to fill in for him.
