Notes: First batting practice goes well for Carl Crawford

Carl Crawford took his first live batting practice session of the spring on Sunday, observed by Dodgers manager Don Mattingly, general manager Ned Colletti, president Stan Kasten, and assorted other front-office executives in Glendale, Ariz.

Crawford had been hitting in the cage, but this was the former Red Sox outfielder’s first regular batting practice since undergoing Tommy John surgery on his left elbow in August.
