Athletics general manager Billy Beane revealed Friday that the club will pick up Coco Crisp's $7.5 million option for 2014.

It was an easy decision after Crisp had his first ever 20/20 season and then batted .389/.455/.611 in the ALDS. Crisp will turn 34 in a few weeks but obviously still has plenty left in the tank as long as he can remain healthy.

Rangers recalled INF/OF Joey Gallo from Triple-A Round Rock.

Gallo has posted a .949 OPS with 19 home runs and 47 RBI in 70 games this season at the Triple-A level. Plate discipline remains an issue for the 22-year-old, but he has incredible raw power and could take on significant fantasy value if he finds a good offensive groove and regular playing time in Texas. Gallo has appeared in 23 games at first base and 33 games at third base this year with Round Rock. He played a lot of left field last year.

Orioles activated OF Hyun Soo Kim from the 15-day disabled list.

Kim is starting in left field and batting second Tuesday night against the Rockies after missing the last 15 days with a strained right hamstring. He returns to an impressive .329/.410/.454 batting line.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Kim slots into a very favorable slot in the order between Jones, Machado, Davis and Trumbo, giving him very nice upside at an affordable price tag across the industry. He's the owner of a .399 wOBA, .135 ISO and 35.0 hard%, not to mention that he has one of the higher average exit velocities on the year at 92.5 MPH. That mark puts him above guys like Edwin Encarnacion, Michael Saunders, Buster Posey and Albert Pujols.

The 29-year-old can also play all around the diamond defensively, which fits well with this current Cleveland roster. Nunez is making $1.48 million in 2016 and carries one more year of arbitration eligibility in 2017.
