PHOENIX -- The Dodgers released outfielder Carl Crawford after he cleared waivers on Monday. Crawford was designated for assignment on June 5 to make room on the roster for utilityman Austin Barnes.

The Dodgers are responsible for the remaining $34 million on Crawford's contract, which the club accepted as part of the cost to acquire Adrian Gonzalez in the 2012 blockbuster trade with the Red Sox that also brought Josh Beckett and Nick Punto for James Loney, Ivan DeJesus Jr., Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa and Jerry Sands.
