Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodger left fielders are hitting .235 without Crawford. Howie Kendrick — Crawford’s surrogate on on the All-Star ballot — has struggled at the plate, batting .159, and wasn’t in the starting lineup Tuesday.To make room for Crawford, the Dodgers optioned Zach Lee to Triple-A Oklahoma City. The pitcher didn’t appear in a game during his three days in the majors.Crawford made three rehab appearances with Oklahoma City and Single-A Rancho Cucamonga, combining to hit .364 (4 for 11) with two doubles and three RBI. His last game was Sunday with the Quakes.Kazmir good to goScott Kazmir didn’t throw a bullpen session after leaving his last start with a sore left thumb Friday in Denver. The left-hander will start today’s game against the Marlins anyway. Kazmir is 1-1 with a 6.63 earned-run average in four starts this season and Roberts suggested that the injury played a part in the results.“Kaz is a pro,” Roberts said. “He doesn’t want to use it as an excuse. When you have the wrist/thumb thing it’s kind of hard for him to get on top of the baseball. I think he was getting a little outside and under it. Now, even just watching him play catch he was getting the extension he needed. The ball was coming out well. I think he’ll be fine.”Kazmir has faced the Marlins only once in the last seven years. For what it’s worth, he didn’t allow a run in that game on August 4, 2013, when he was pitching for the Cleveland Indians.Left-hander Justin Nicolino is being summoned from Triple-A to start for the Marlins to make be his 2016 debut. In 12 games last year, Nicolino went 5-4 with a 4.01 earned-run average, including a June 26 start at Dodger Stadium in which Nicolino allowed five runs in four innings.The Marlins optioned right-hander Jarred Cosart, who had been scheduled to start, to Triple-A New Orleans.AlsoHyun-Jin Ryu and Brandon McCarthy threw bullpen sessions Tuesday. Ryu is back to throwing bullpen sessions every fifth day, Roberts said, following a brief setback in his shoulder labrum rehab when he suffered a groin injury. … McCarthy threw for about 20 minutes at Dodger Stadium. The right-hander underwent Tommy John surgery almost one year ago, on April 30, 2015. … Roberts might shuffle the rotation when the Dodgers get two off-days in the same week next Monday and Thursday. “We’re talking about kind of moving some things around maybe, but right now we’re going to keep things as is,” Roberts said. “With Ross (Stripling), and just kind of with his usage, that’s something still in his infancy.” … Stripling is on an innings limit this season that the Dodgers haven’t disclosed. Four starts into the season, the rookie right-hander has a 3.22 earned-run average and has accrued 22 1/3 innings. Carl Crawford was activated from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday. His first game since April 9 lasted more than seven innings, which should come as a mild surprise.Crawford played five games at the beginning of the season before he was sidelined with a sore lower back. He never played a full nine innings, and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts hinted Tuesday that will continue.“We’ve seen there’s a propensity to get injured,” Roberts said of Crawford, who missed 75 games last year recovering from a strained oblique. “Even in the beginning of the season you saw I took him out even to get him off his feet. The idea of running him out there until he breaks is not something I believe in. I just try to kind of conserve as much as possible and just use that depth.”Roberts said that “optimally” Crawford would play “three, maybe four times a week.”
