Boston, MA – The Red Sox activated outfielder Carl Crawford from the 60-day disabled list on Monday.
Crawford has not appeared in a major league game this season due to wrist surgery, a strained elbow ligament and a groin injury.
Crawford, who is in the second year of a seven-year deal worth $142 million, hit .255 with 11 home runs and 18 stolen bases in his first season in Boston.
In nine seasons with Tampa Bay, the four-time All-Star hit .296 with 104 home runs and 409 stolen bases and led the American League in triples and stolen bases four times.
In an 11-game rehab assignment, Crawford hit .306 with a pair of stolen bases.
To make room for Crawford on the roster, the Red Sox designated infielder/outfielder Brent Lillibridge for assignment. Lillibridge, who was acquired in exchange for Kevin Youkilis on June 24, hit .165 with two RBI in 59 games this season for the White Sox and Red Sox.
