The Boston Red Sox released a statement (below) on Carl Crawford's injury. Media reports out of Chicago (where the Red Sox are playing) say Crawford could miss as many as three months.
"Carl Crawford was examined by the Red Sox medical staff. He was diagnosed as having a left elbow ulnar collateral ligament sprain. A conservative treatment protocol was recommended. Carl was also examined by Dr. James Andrews who was in agreement with the assessment and plan. Carl received a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injection and will be shut down from baseball activity during the initial phase of his treatment."Tweet
