Hello and happy Thursday.
Before Wednesday’s game, it was reported that Crawford was likely to be activated for Thursday’s series finale matinee.
Brandon Crawford expects to be back in lineup tomorrow for final game against Dodgers. Brandon Belt starts rehab assignment tomorrow. #brandons— Alex Pavlovic (@PavlovicNBCS) July 28, 2021
Thairo Estrada has done an admirable job filling in for Crawford while he was out, but it sure will be great to have the All-Star shortstop back.
His namesake, Brandon Belt, is also nearing a return, and will start a rehab assignment on Thursday.
