Coco Crisp was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to neck soreness.
Crisp has a history of neck issues, although there's been no indication that this is more than a day-to-day thing. The A's put Yonder Alonso in the lineup in Crisp's place, moving Danny Valencia to right field and Jake Smolinski to center. Jul 24 - 2:06 PM

Coco Crisp singled in Ryon Healy in the bottom of the 13th for the only run as the A's beat the Rays 1-0 on Friday.

It was Crisp's only hit of the night, but it came at a good time. He should be starting to lose playing time with the A's needing to go younger down the stretch, but Bob Melvin just can't give him up. He's batting .196/.268/.235 in 51 at-bats this month. He's led off 12 times for the A's in July and scored just twice.

Coco Crisp is in Monday's lineup against the Astros.

The Athletics plan to give Jake Smolinski more time in center field, so Crisp hasn't played since Friday. He's hitting leadoff against right-hander Mike Fiers. Danny Valencia, who is also expected to take on a reduced role, is serving as the DH on Monday.
Jul 18 - 6:24 PM

Coco Crisp is not in the Athletics' lineup Saturday against the Blue Jays.

It looks like the veteran is just getting a breather. Jake Smolinski is starting in center field with Khris Davis in left. Manager Bob Melvin said recently that he wanted to give Smolinski more time in center field, which could eventually reduce Crisp to a part-time role. The 36-year-old has hit .239 this year with seven homers and five steals.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Friday that Coco Crisp will probably see less playing time in center field.

The Athletics demoted Billy Burns on Friday, but they want to get a longer look at Jake Smolinski in center field. It's worth noting that Crisp's $13 million option for 2017 vests if he reaches 130 games played or 550 plate appearances this season, so it appears that the A's are trying to avoid that. Crisp batted .244/.305/.411 over 73 games during the first half.

Coco Crisp has been suspended one game by Major League Baseball for his actions during Thursday's game against the Astros.

Crisp was ejected from the contest for tossing a bat in the direction of home plate umpire D.J. Rayburn following a fifth-inning strikeout. He will not appeal and will serve the suspension Friday.
Jul 8 - 3:47 PM

Coco Crisp was ejected from Thursday's game against the Astros.

He was tossed for throwing a bat in the direction of home plate umpire D.J. Rayburn following a fifth-inning strikeout. Crisp went 0-for-3, ending his hitting streak at 12 games. Billy Burns came on to replace Crisp in center field after the ejection.
Jul 7 - 9:50 PM

Coco Crisp is out of the A's lineup Wednesday.

Billy Burns will start in center field and bat leadoff versus Twins right-hander Ervin Santana. It's just a routine day of maintenance for the veteran Crisp.
Jul 6 - 11:23 AM

Coco Crisp has a go-ahead two-run single in Monday’s 3-1 victory over the Twins.

The A’s tied things up against Ricky Nolasco in the top of the seventh inning before Crisp put them in front with a single up the middle against Taylor Rogers. He went 1-for-3 with a walk on the afternoon and is now riding an 11-game hitting streak. He’s batting .378 (17-for-45) with 14 RBI in that timespan.
Jul 4 - 5:27 PM

Coco Crisp finished the day 3-for-4 with a walk, two RBI and four runs scored on Saturday.

Crisp is rapidly approaching the end of his 15 year career and is not having a good season, but he is still capable of filling the stat sheet on the rare occasions when he is fully healthy. Today he reached base four times and his teammates drove him home each time.
Jun 26 - 2:45 AM

Coco Crisp went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a double in Wednesday's loss to the Brewers.

Crisp slashed a solo homer off Brewers starter Junior Guerra in the fourth inning. It was the veteran outfielder's sixth of the season. He also managed a double in the game, his 14th such hit of that variety. Despite Wednesday's nice efforts, Crisp is still slashing just .227/.284/.394 over 216 at-bats. He does not make for a legitimate fantasy option.
Jun 22 - 7:00 PM

Coco Crisp is not in the Athletics' lineup Tuesday against the Rangers.

The A's will go with an outfield of Khris Davis, Billy Burns and Jake Smolinski. Crisp has hit just .167 this month and hasn't plated a run since June 1. The 36-year-old is no longer fantasy relevant.
Jun 14 - 7:59 PM

Coco Crisp went 0-for-4 on Wednesday and has a .246 OBP in 31 games hitting leadoff for the A's.

Billy Burns isn't doing a whole lot better, but it'd still make a lot more sense to hit him first and Crisp ninth when Crisp plays. And Crisp shouldn't be playing as much as he is.
Jun 8 - 11:02 PM

Coco Crisp (heel) is back in the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

He missed Saturday's game with a sore heel but is ready to roll for this one. Crisp is in left field and batting leadoff.
Jun 5 - 11:35 AM

Coco Crisp (heel) in not in the Athletics' starting lineup Saturday against the Astros.

He's dealing with a lingering heel issue. Chris Coghlan will grab the start in left field and bat eighth. Crisp is day-to-day.
