Chicken Dance confirms a "left intercostal muscle strain." Crowe continues to be a crazy yo-yo story. Even casual Indians fans know who he is, but he's become a kind of running joke as well. There have been plenty of times where he has been absolutely awful ("Ah! Second base!!"), plenty of times when he has been hurt, and yet he still gets spring training ABs with the big club. At the time of his injury, he had worked his OPS up to (a batting average inflated) .921. If he had enough bats to qualify, that would make him a top 10 hitter in the Eastern League. However, Chris Gimenez is not impressed. He's 24, a year younger than Gimenez (although I'll ask APV to check this). And has 26 BBs to 26 Ks. Everything about this screams oft-injured spare outfielder, so hooray. Weglarz is different - he's a potential impact player. Crowe is the name that just won't go away. Also, Lofgren is back, and something about LaPorta. I had a whiny intro paragraph about how everything continues to go wrong, but I deleted it.
