Before the 2011, Crawford signed a massive seven year, $142M deal with the Red Sox only to be slowed significantly by injuries in the years following. Late in the 2012 season, he and his contract were dealt to the Dodgers as a part of the Adrian Gonzalez/Josh Beckett trade. Still unable to return to his athletic old-self because of injury, the Dodgers released Crawford in June with $35M left on his contract that expires in 2017. Crawford is not likely to completely vanish from the public eye during his free agency, as he still has endorsement deals with Nike and Rawlings as well as an engagement to TV personality Evelyn Lozada.
