Said Bochy: "He's won too many games for us to be frustrated with him."
Bochy thinks Crawford's hands have been too high on the bat, and he told his shortstop Sunday that he believes a break would be beneficial.
"He's winning games for us," Bochy said before the game. "We need him in the lineup."
Crawford, who's started 82 of the team's 90 games at shortstop, is just 6-for-his-last-42 (.142) at the plate and has hit .091 (1-for-11) with three walks in the Giants' last four games.
