SAN FRANCISCO -- Class A Advanced Clearwater shortstop J.P. Crawford has not played since Monday because of a sprained left ankle.

It is not believed to be serious. Crawford reportedly felt better Saturday and is day to day.

"I'm not sure how much longer it is going to take," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said before Saturday's game against the Giants at AT&T Park. "We're not overly concerned."

Crawford is the No. 1 prospect in the organization. The 19-year-old is hitting .274 with four doubles, six home runs, 18 RBIs and a .743 OPS in 48 games with Clearwater since a midseason promotion from Class A Lakewood.
