Crawford aims to return after All-Star break

Dodgers left fielder continues rehab at Oklahoma City

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford continues his path back to the Majors with a stint in Triple-A Oklahoma City and looks for to be activated after the All-Star break.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said there is a plan in place for Crawford to play up until the All-Star break, and then assess his progress.

"I think [trainer] Stan [Conte] has a plan mapped out for him to be playing through the break so they have the same time off that we do," Mattingly said. "Then we can see where he's at."

Crawford is 4-for-7 with a double in two games with Oklahoma City after an illness over the weekend set him back a few days. Tuesday's game for Oklahoma City was rained out. This is the next step for Crawford, who played in two partial games in Class A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga on June 30 and July 1.

"He's been good," Mattingly said. "He just needs to continue to play."

In other injury news, infielder Hector Olivera was added to the Dodgers Rookie League team in Arizona on Tuesday. Olivera has been hampered by a hamstring injury since June 23. Olivera is hitting .358 in 13 games, split between Oklahoma City and Double-A Tulsa.
