Posted on: November 11, 2009

carl-crawfordThe Tampa Bay Rays have exercised their 2010 option for left-fielder Carl Crawford, which is $10 million. Even though Crawford is only 28 years old, he is the longest tenured player in Rays history. Last season, Crawford hit .305 with 15 homeruns to go along with 68 rbis. He also was a huge threat on the base paths. He stole a club-record 60 bases and scored 96 runs, Crawford is also fourth among active players with 362 stolen bases in his career. He ranks third in triples with 92. Crawford, an eight-year veteran, can become a free agent next fall if the Rays do not sign him to a new deal before or during the upcoming 2010 MLB season.
