LOS ANGELES (AP) - Carl Crawford slipped his new No. 25 jersey over his head, finally having joined the Los Angeles Dodgers two months after the blockbuster trade from Boston that left him as the forgotten $100 million man.
``Feels good,'' he said, smiling at his introduction on Friday.
Crawford had Tommy John surgery on his left elbow two days before the Aug. 25 trade that shook up clubhouses in two cities. The left fielder never suited up for the Dodgers and went home to Houston to rehab while new acquisitions Adrian Gonzalez and Josh Beckett quickly made their presence felt.
Crawford is due $102.5 million over the next five seasons. The 31-year-old hit .282 with three homers and 19 RBIs in 31 games with the Red Sox before his season-ending second surgery. He had his left wrist operated on in January.
