Crawford experienced some discomfort and was removed out of precaution. He appeared fine thereafter so I’m not sure I would be overly concerned. They removed Korey Morton too after he got hit in head at plate and was laughing and joking later saying that was staffs call not his to come out of game.
David Smith has certainly been getting a lot of attention during fall ball. I had mentioned before that I envisioned him being used in a Tony Phillips type utility role, getting plenty of playing time while filling in at several positions in the field. I'm also starting to wonder that Smith might find a more permanent home in the infield, which possibly could move Christian Fedko into more of a D.H. role for the Huskies. We'll just have to see how this all plays out.
