The A's are in Texas for three games over the weekend then travel to Minnesota for four games and Seattle for three next week. Crisp is slated to begin his minor league rehab assignment at High-A Stockton on Sunday and should only need a couple of days to get his timing right before he's ready for big league action.

Coco Crisp (elbow) will take batting practice with High-A Stockton Friday before starting a rehab assignment on Sunday.

Apr 26 - 2:14 PM

Coco Crisp (elbow) is ahead of schedule in his rehab from spring elbow surgery.

Crisp was not expected to start baseball activities until the weekend, but has already begun playing catch and taking dry swings. The veteran underwent surgery on his right elbow on April 3. The middle of May is probably the earliest we'll see Crisp, though that's still somewhat optimistic.
Apr 23 - 5:20 PM

Coco Crisp (elbow) played catch from 60 feet and took dry swings Wednesday.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Crisp felt good during the session. The outfielder underwent right elbow surgery on April 3 and is still weeks away from a return.
Apr 22 - 8:16 PM

A's trainer Nick Paparesta said Coco Crisp (elbow) could begin baseball activity on Monday.

That doesn't necessarily mean Crisp is close to a return but it's a step in the right direction. Crisp, who underwent right elbow surgery on April 3, was originally given a 6-8 week timetable. He doesn't offer much in the way of average or power but Crisp can tear up the base paths when he's healthy.
Apr 18 - 5:30 PM

Athletics placed OF Coco Crisp on 15-day disabled list with a right elbow injury.

Crisp had surgery to remove a bone spur and bone chips on Friday. The initial timetable has him out 6-8 weeks. Craig Gentry and Billy Burns will fill in for the veteran as he rehabs.
Apr 4 - 7:43 PM

The Athletics expect the veteran outfielder to be sidelined for 6-8 weeks, though that timetable could change. Craig Gentry and Billy Burns are expected to be the primary beneficiaries in his absence.
Apr 3 - 10:30 PM

Coco Crisp will have surgery Friday to remove a bone spur and chips from his right elbow.

Crisp tweeted that he hoped to be sidelined just 2-3 weeks, but that's almost surely just wishful thinking. The A's expect the outfielder to be on the shelf for 6-8 weeks, although a clearer timetable should be available after Friday's procedure.
Apr 2 - 8:14 PM

Coco Crisp is expected to undergo surgery to remove a bone spur and chips from his right elbow.

The procedure will require 6-8 weeks of rest and rehab. Crisp has been bothered by right elbow discomfort for much of spring training and was already ticketed for a season-opening disabled list stint. Now that stay on the DL will extend into the middle of May. Craig Gentry figures to get the majority of the starts in left field for the A's in the early going. This could also boost Billy Burns' fantasy profile as a base-stealing threat.
Apr 2 - 8:57 AM

Coco Crisp (elbow) is likely to begin the season on the disabled list after feeling soreness in his right elbow while batting in a minor league game Tuesday.

Crisp had experienced improvement after being given a cortisone injection a week ago, but he hit another bump in the road Tuesday. He hasn't played in a Cactus League game since March 23, so the A's can backdate a disabled list stint. There's no guarantee he'll be ready to go when his 15 days are up, however. Oakland is now expected to be without both of their corner outfielders on Opening Day, as Josh Reddick is sidelined with a strained oblique.
