Crawford, Haren not expected to go to Australia
Crawford's fiancé, Evelyn Lozado is expecting a child.
"At this point, Carl is not going," Mattingly said.
The Dodgers thought about taking Haren, their No. 4 starter, to Australia in case of an injury or some other circumstance prevented Clayton Kershaw and/or Hyun-Jin Ryu from pitching.
Kershaw is scheduled to start the opener March 22 at Sydney Cricket Ground. Ryu is scheduled to start the second game.
"Haren, as of right now, won't be on the plane," Mattingly said.
Veteran left-hander Paul Maholm, who signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal on Feb. 8, is expected to go instead of Haren. With Crawford not expected to travel, Mike Baxter and prospect Joc Pederson might go instead.
Mattingly said the travel roster won't be finalized until the Dodgers play the Colorado Rockies on Sunday in their final Cactus League game.
