Athletics manager Bob Melvin admitted Friday that Coco Crisp (neck) has also been dealing with several kidney stones.
It's not much of a surprise that the oft-injured outfielder finds himself on the disabled list once again, and even while trying to recover from a neck issue, he's having other health problems. He isn't expected to rejoin the A's until after the All-Star break, and his chances of remaining healthy after his return are slim. Jul 3 - 6:56 PM

Coco Crisp (neck) is scheduled to undergo an epidural on Monday and will be sidelined at least a month afterward.

The hope remains that he will be able to avoid surgery, though it continues to look unlikely that he will be fantasy relevant this season. Billy Burns will continue to benefit in his absence.

Athletics placed OF Coco Crisp on the 15-day disabled list with compressed discs in his neck.

Coco Crisp will not undergo surgery to repair his nagging neck injury.

Crisp revealed via social media on Thursday that he received "disheartening news" about his neck after seeing a doctor, but the plan is to treat the ailment with rest and rehab. The alternative would be a potentially career-ending operation, so it's no surprise they chose the former route. The A's haven't decided yet whether to place Crisp on the disabled list.

Coco Crisp said via Snapchat on Thursday that he got "disheartening news" about his neck injury, but would not elaborate.

Coco Crisp (neck) will get an MRI on Thursday and is scheduled to see a doctor in Dallas on Friday.

It was originally reported that he would see a specialist on Thursday, but there was a scheduling conflict. Crisp left Tuesday's game with a neck issue that is similar to the problem he dealt with in 2014. It's possible he'll need another stint on the DL.

Coco Crisp (neck) is not in the Athletics' lineup Wednesday.

Crisp exited Tuesday's game with a neck issue that manager Bob Melvin admitted was similar to the nagging neck ailment the outfielder battled last season. He's considered day-to-day. Craig Gentry is in left field Wednesday.
May 20 - 11:17 AM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said that the neck injury Coco Crisp suffered Tuesday is similar to the one he dealt with last season.

Well, that's not encouraging. Crisp never was placed on the disabled list last season, but he was limited to just 126 games in 2014 while battling the neck ailment off and on. Melvin said that the outfielder is considered day-to-day. Crisp is off to a 2-for-45 start at the plate this season.
May 19 - 11:48 PM

Coco Crisp left Tuesday's game against the Astros with neck tightness.

May 19 - 9:33 PM

Coco Crisp went 0-for-4 with a walk in Monday's win against the Astros, lowering his batting average to .045.

Crisp debuted on May 6 after undergoing elbow surgery in April. He's 2-for-44 with two singles and six walks. His struggles are reaching the two-week mark which may force the A's to move him more regularly towards the bottom of the lineup until he can right his ship.
May 18 - 11:51 PM

Coco Crisp went 0-for-6 in Monday's 11-inning loss to the Red Sox.

Crisp moves to 0-for-21 on the season after making his season debut on May 6. He had right elbow surgery in April. The 35-year-old's best years are likely behind him, but he could still provide some value in the stolen base department over the course of the season.
May 12 - 2:07 AM

Athletics activated OF Coco Crisp from the 15-day disabled list.

Crisp needed just two rehab games to show the A's he was ready, beating his original timetable to return from elbow surgery by a couple weeks. He could be eased back into the lineup but will eventually settle in as the regular left fielder. Craig Gentry has been sent down in a corresponding move.
May 6 - 3:37 PM

Coco Crisp (elbow) is undergoing treatment for his elbow on Tuesday and the team will make a decision on his return date come Wednesday.

Crisp could return as early as this week. Manager Bob Melvin said that the decision will be made on Wednesday. Crisp's been rehabbing at High-A as he recovers from early April elbow surgery. Don't be surprised if you see him in the lineup for the team's weekend series against the Mariners.
