Meanwhile, Crawford reiterated that renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews has told him he eventually will need Tommy John elbow surgery, and the left fielder strongly suggested that he undergo the procedure sooner rather than later to avoid missing a significant portion of next season.
“That would be the smart thing to do,” Crawford said. “The later I wait to get it done, the more time I’ll miss. You definitely want to try to take care of it as soon as possible. Like I say, we just have to wait and see. Right now, that’s why I tried to get back so quick and help the team. If we’re still in (the playoff race), I want to do that. If not, we probably have to look into (surgery).”
GM Ben Cherington has repeatedly stated the Red Sox disagree with the premise that surgery is an inevitability, noting that many position players (including Albert Pujols) have played for years at a high level with damaged ulnar collateral ligaments.
It’s hard to imagine any way that the Red Sox organization could be more dysfunctional.
