    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Mar 1, 2013
    Nerve irritation in his surgically-repaired elbow has set back Crawford's comeback, which would also be his Dodgers debut. Per theL.A. Times: The diagnosis of "minor nerve irritation" was made Thursday night, after Crawford flew to Los Angeles to be examined by Dr. Neal ElAttrache. The club said the irritation developed from increased intensity hitting live pitching during his rehab from August Tommy John elbow reconstruction. The Dodgers had hoped Crawford would be in left field on April 1 when they open the season against the San Francisco Giants. Now they are less hopeful. Crawford flew back to Los Angeles on Thursday night to be examined by the team doctor, and according to the Dodgers, the repaired ligament remains sound. Crawford is a career .292/.332/.441 hitter and, if healthy, will form a daunting outfield with Matt Kemp and Andre Either. "Opening Day would be great, but as I've told him, if it's 10 days into it, if it's 15 days into it, if it's 20 days into it, I want him to be healthy when it starts," manager Don Mattingly said.
