Athletics trainer trainer Nick Paparesta said Tuesday that Coco Crisp has "some chronic degenerative changes" in his neck.

Crisp was initially injured back on May 7 and has dealt with pain his his neck off-and-on since then. He'll avoid the disabled list for now and could return to the lineup as soon as Friday, but it's something that the outfielder is "going to battle throughout the season," Paparesta said. "Now we're trying to figure out what the next course would be to alleviate some of the issues that he's having," manager Bob Melvin added, "whether it's medication or whatever."

Werth didn't start Tuesday after exiting Monday's contest with a sprained ankle, but he was able to pinch-hit and is now ready to re-enter the lineup. The outfielder sports a .283/.375/.444 batting line with 12 homers and 58 RBI over 101 games this season.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Orioles are interested in the Astros' Dallas Keuchel and Jarred Cosart.

The O's don't want to give up one of their better pitching prospects for a rental like Jon Lester and instead are focused more on players that they'd control longer. Both Keuchel and Cosart have yet to reach arbitration, so they'd fit the bill. The Orioles have also dealt with the Astros in the past, having acquire Bud Norris at the deadline last season.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rockies plan to either pick up Brett Anderson's $12 million option for 2015 or sign him to a long-term deal.

Anderson has been terrific in his last two starts, which has piqued the interest of the Yankees, according to ESPN's Buster Olney. However, Rosenthal says Colorado wants to keep the lefty around rather than field trade offers for him. Anderson has been limited to just six starts this year due to a fractured left index finger, but he's put up a 3.24 ERA in those outings.

Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald reports that the Red Sox have told teams that it will require "at least two elite-level prospects" to acquire Jon Lester.

It's a hefty price to pay for a two-month rental, but you can't blame the Red Sox for asking for that haul, especially when it looks like David Price might not be dealt. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman has listed the Dodgers and the Cardinals as the favorites for Lester, and Lauber has been told by industry insiders that the Dodgers are the "front-runner." The Pirates and A's are lurking in the background.

Ubaldo Jimenez (ankle) allowed one unearned run on five hits and three walks while striking out three over 4 2/3 frames in his first rehab start with Short Season-Aberdeen.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said before he knew the results of the appearance that it's possible Jimenez will be rejoin the big club's rotation after the outing. "We’ll see, if it goes well,’’ Showalter said. "We can pitch him at [Triple-A] Norfolk or activate him. We’ll see [after] tonight." Jimenez has been out since mid-July with a sprained right ankle.
