Crawford: 'I was moving too fast, probably'

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Carl Crawford said Saturday morning that he doesn't have a timetable as to when he can start baseball activities again, but did report his injured left wrist did feel better than the last few days.

"I was moving too fast, probably," said Crawford, who said being ready for Opening Day is still his goal.

Crawford was put on anti-inflammatory medicine after experiencing pain in his surgically-repaired left wrist two days ago.

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine offered an update after Crawford was examined, reporting that the swelling was down, there was a nice range of motion and there had been progress from the last couple of days. 

"I've taken a few days off because my wrist flared up a little bit. Just taking a little precaution and waiting back," he said. "Probably over-working it a little bit and it flared u on me. I just have to cut back a little bit.

"I just felt like I was on my way, but then I had a little setback. I guess this kind of stuff happens. Just got to keep moving on."

I've taken a few days off because my wrist flamed up a little bit. Just taking a little precaution and waiting back.

Crawford said he is on the team's schedule now, having previously been executing everything from bunting to hitting off a tee to throwing.

"The bunting didn't help it," he said. "Doing all the activities didn't make it better, but bunting was the final thing that took it over the edge. ... It was pretty much myself trying to push it a little bit. Probably shouldn't have done as much as I was doing. But it was feeling so good at first I thought I could just keep going and keep going. Now I know what kind of pace I have to do things at. Once the inflammation goes down I know not to try and push it."
