BOSTON (AP) _ Red Sox left fielder Carl Crawford is in Boston’s lineup after missing the entire season with left wrist and elbow injuries.

Signed to a $142 million, seven-year contract before last season, the 30-year old Crawford had a disappointing 2011. He hit a career-worst .255 with 11 homers and 56 RBIs, and finished with just 18 stolen bases after swiping 47 in 2010 and 60 the year before that.

He had wrist surgery in January and was hoping to be ready for opening day, but suffered a few setbacks and didn’t begin his first rehab assignment until late June.

He’s scheduled to play left and bat second Monday night against the White Sox, who bring Kevin Youkilis back to Beantown for the first time since his June 24th trade to Chicago.
