NEW YORK (AP) -Tampa Bay left fielder Carl Crawford left the opener of Saturday's doubleheader against the New York Yankees in the fifth inning.
Greg Norton batted for Crawford two innings after manager Joe Maddon and a trainer briefly came out to check on the speedster at third base. Norton flied out and replaced Crawford in the field in the bottom half.
Crawford beat out an infield single to second in the third, stretching out his stride to get to the bag. He went to second on B.J. Upton's base hit and advanced to third on a walk. That's when Maddon came out of the dugout and was quickly waived off.
Crawford was leading the American League with 31 stolen bases entering play Saturday.
