Mandatory Credit: Kirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsJust when they got Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp back onto the field, Carl Crawford goes on the 15-day disabled list.

At least there’s still room for Yasiel Puig in the outfield.

Crawford’s strained hamstring is to blame, which seems to be getting pretty common among the guys.

Once he returns, the Dodgers will have to decide what to do with their outfield.

The most logical thing is to bench Ethier and look to trade him since Crawford leads the team in runs, Puig is the most electrifying player they’ve had since Manny Ramirez, and Kemp is still a viable batter (when he’s not slumping).

However, Ethier’s 5 year/$85 million contract will be tough to move with his production.

Crawford is expected to play in two games with their Rancho Cucamonga team before returning to the lineup.
