Dodgers DFA Carl Crawford

Carl Crawford has been designated for assignment. That means that the Dodgers have 10 days to put Crawford on waivers, trade him, release him or send him to the minors (with his permission). Often times, this move is essentially the team cutting the player.

In Crawford’s case, this is a last resort move. Crawford, 34, is making $21.607 million this season and will make $21.857 million next season. If someone else picks up Crawford (either by waivers or simply signing him after he’s released), that team will only be responsible for the league minimum salary while the Dodgers have to pick up the rest. They are paying him no matter what.

Carl Crawford is so bad the Dodgers would rather play a second baseman in left field and pay Crawford to go away.
