Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford could miss the April 1 opener against San Francisco after leaving spring training in Glendale, Ariz., to have his elbow examined in Los Angeles. Recovering from elbow ligament-replacement surgery on Aug. 23, Crawford felt nerve irritation in his left arm. The Dodgers said Friday he was examined a day earlier and was prescribed anti-inflammatory medication and told to rest. Crawford was back in camp Friday and will not take batting practice or throw for about seven days, according to Dodgers manager Don Mattingly.

Jose Canseco was arrested at his home in Davie, Fla., yesterday after testing positive for steroids - a violation of his probation stemming from a nightclub brawl. The former American League MVP, who had been under house arrest for violating probation earlier, was being held at Broward County Jail without bond pending a court appearance. He will probably face a hearing on Monday or Tuesday, officials said. A total of six players from the Pittsburgh Pirates and Tampa Bay Devil Rays were disciplined for their involvement in a bench-clearing brawl during a game on Sunday.

How's this for clutch pitching? The Phils were clinging to a one-run lead in the sixth inning. The Tampa Bay Rays put the potential tying run on base when first baseman Ryan Howard - would his defense be an issue before the Series was over? - made an error on a grounder by Carlos Pena. The temperature was rising at Tropicana Field, but Cole Hamels stayed cool. As he prepared to face cleanup man Evan Longoria, Pena broke for second. Hamels saw Pena go and threw to first.

IT WAS a one-two punch. First, the Boston Red Sox lost, then Evan Longoria, seemingly knowing what was on the line, lifted the Tampa Bay Rays into the playoffs. The Rays clinched the AL wild card with a stunning rally last night, overcoming a late seven-run deficit, then beating the visiting New York Yankees, 8-7, on Longoria's home run in the 12th inning. The Rays' win came 4 minutes after Boston blew a one-run lead in the ninth at Baltimore and lost, 4-3. The Red Sox, who held a nine-game lead over the Rays in early September, and Tampa Bay began the final day of the regular season tied for the wild card.

Matt Garza had to settle for his second career shutout after making a bid for the first no-hitter in Tampa Bay history. Garza didn't allow a hit against the Rangers until a debatable call with two outs in the sixth inning last night, then finished with a two-hitter as the Rays beat host Texas, 7-0. Meanwhile, a Tampa Bay lineup missing injured stars Evan Longoria and Carl Crawford hit four home runs in 4 2/3 innings off Kevin Millwood (6-7)....

Carl Crawford shrugged off what is becoming a typical performance for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays' leadoff man. The 22-year-old emerging star went 4-for-5, scored three runs, stole two bases and had an RBI in a 10-2 victory over the visiting Toronto Blue Jays last night. Crawford is 29-for-64 in his last 14 games, boosting his team-leading batting average to .319, with a major league-leading 35 steals. "I'm just feeling comfortable at the plate and knowing which area I want to hit the ball in, instead of going up there swinging," Crawford said.

Tampa Bay outfielder Carl Crawford angrily shouted at teammate Pat Burrell in the clubhouse before last night's game in Baltimore, the latest breakdown in a lost season for the Rays. It was not clear what caused the dispute shortly before the Rays took the field for pregame stretching. The Orioles won the game, 4-2, on catcher Matt Wieters' two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth. Crawford, who had two hits for Tampa Bay but was twice caught stealing by Wieters, repeatedly yelled across the clubhouse at the Rays' designated hitter.

Detroit Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias could miss most or all of the 2014 season because of shin injuries, ESPN reported Saturday. "I am not in a position to discuss his situation," Detroit general manager David Dombrowski told ESPN. The Tigers acquired Iglesias from the Boston Red Sox in a three-team trade in July, and he hit .259 in 46 games. The defensive whiz was to be joined this season by former Rangers' second baseman Ian Kinsler and rookie third baseman Nick Castellanos. The Tigers do not have another everyday shortstop and could turn to free agent Stephen Drew, who hit .253 with 13 homers and 67 RBIs in 124 games with Boston last season.

WHO'S THAT VULTURE perched on Mariano Rivera's shoulder? Why is Torii Hunter OK moving to rightfield? And how much will Adrian Gonzalez enjoy his new home? Here's a quick buzz around the American League: 1. Just try to imagine the late, great Bob Sheppard's voice announcing the following: "These changes for the Yankees. Russell Martin is now the catcher. Jorge Posada will DH. Rafael Soriano is the closer in waiting. Andy Pettitte has retired. And the Red Sox are now favored to win the AL East.

ALTHOUGH PLAYERS are still occasionally suspended for PEDs, the steroid era is long over. Home runs have been down, speed has been up. Players such as Ben Revere are welcomed in today's game. Elite speedsters such as Cincinnati rookie Billy Hamilton and Dodgers second baseman Dee Gordon are celebrated. Gordon worked his magic right off the bat last night, leading off the game against the Phillies with a single, then stealing both second and third and scoring on a Yasiel Puig single.

HERE IS a look at a six-pack of top prospects in the Phillies' farm system: MAIKEL FRANCO Age: 21 Position: Third base Scouting report: The Phillies' top prospect and Baseball America's No. 17 prospect overall stormed onto the scene last year with 31 combined home runs in the minors and a .320 batting average. In Franco's first two seasons in the Phillies' farm system, he hit .222 and .247. But in the last two seasons, he hit .280 and .320. Speed is not one of Franco's best attributes, but the third baseman relies on soft hands and fairly good actions at the hot corner.

SIX DAYS before the major league draft, Marti Wolever, the Phillies assistant general manager and scouting director, was asked about what he was looking to get out of the 16th selection in the first round. It was the Phillies' highest draft position since 2001. Although it could have been viewed as deception at the time, the answer Wolever provided turned out to be brutally honest. "We're going to get a very good player," Wolever said. "We've got a couple of kids, I think - and, of course, I'm not going to pass their names around - but we've got a couple of kids that we have a lot of interest in, that I think can certainly make their major league careers long and successful here.

THE REBUILDING of the organizational middle infield depth continued yesterday as the Phillies selected southern California high school standout J.P. Crawford with the 16th pick in the Major League Baseball draft. Crawford was widely regarded as one of the top middle infielders in the nation, a 6-3, 175-pound athlete with rare polish for a high school player. "Physically, I just think he has to fill out a little bit and grow into his body a little bit more," said Phillies assistant general manager Marti Wolever, who leads the organization's draft effort.

The competition to see who replaces Jimmy Rollins as the Phillies' future shortstop got a little more crowded Thursday night when the team selected J.P. Crawford of Lakewood (Calif.) High School with the 16th overall pick in the first-year player draft. It is the same high school attended by righthander Shane Watson, the Phillies' first selection in last year's draft. Freddy Galvis is the leader in the clubhouse to replace Rollins because he is already in the big-league clubhouse.

The Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers have agreed in principle to a stunning, eight-player deal that signals a change of course for the struggling Sox, according to multiple reports. First baseman Adrian Gonzalez, righthanded pitcher Josh Beckett, and outfielder Carl Crawford - owed more than $260 million combined over the next six seasons - are headed to Los Angeles, along with infielder Nick Punto. The Red Sox would acquire first baseman James Loney, second baseman Ivan DeJesus, righthanded pitcher Rubby De La Rosa, outfielder Jerry Sands, and pitcher Allen Webster.

BOSTON RED SOX outfielder Carl Crawford will have season-ending surgery on his left elbow Thursday. Crawford has been playing with pain since coming off the disabled list last month and will have Tommy John surgery. "It became clear over last few days that surgery was going to happen," Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said Monday on a conference call. "We felt like after talking about it more this weekend with Carl, the right thing to do is to get it taken care of now. He had played through the injury and played pretty well, but it wasn't getting better.

These days, it's tough to remember that sports are just supposed to be fun - taken seriously by the athletes paid to perform, yes, but a only diverting entertainment for the fans, who, after all, are simply watching other people play. On July 5, Boston outfielder Carl Crawford said a fan yelled a racial slur at him at the stadium of the double-A New Hampshire Fisher Cats, where the erstwhile Red Sox slugger was playing in a rehab stint with the Portland Sea Dogs. Crawford has not been a favorite of Boston fans since signing a seven-year, $142 million deal last season.
