Coco Crisp is out Wednesday afternoon against the Mariners because of a heel issue.
A's manager Bob Melvin also mentioned that Crisp saw a doctor Wednesday morning for a "non-baseball issue," so there might be something else going on here. The veteran outfielder is presumably day-to-day. May 4 - 2:22 PM

Coco Crisp went 2-for-3 with two walks and a run scored to pace Oakland's offense in their win over the Blue Jays on Friday.

Crisp is only hitting .227/.320/.455, but is beginning to show some life at the plate and on the base paths. He already has four stolen bases and was caught stealing on Friday, which indicates that his health isn't a major issue at this time. There's enough speed left in the tank to be worthwhile in fantasy, so monitor him in the upcoming week. He's still kicking off a bit of rust after only seeing 139 PA a year ago, but could be on the verge of getting regular playing time in the outfield.

Coco Crisp went 2-for-3 with a home run and two runs scored in a win over the Yankees on Thursday.

Crisp followed Khris Davis' solo shot in the seventh inning with one of his own, his second dinger of the season. It's been mostly ugly for the outfielder to date --- he's hitting .195/.267/.415 after Thursday's game -- but his two homers and four stolen bases serve as a reminder that he's still got a few tricks up his sleeve.
Apr 21 - 11:58 PM

Coco Crisp is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Yankees.

Crisp hasn't done much to take advantage of early playing time, batting just .167 (6-for-36) over 11 games. Billy Burns will start in center field and bat leadoff against Michael Pineda while Chris Coghlan will play left. Khris Davis will serve as the DH.

Coco Crisp went 0-for-5 as Oakland's leadoff hitter in Friday's loss to the Royals.

Crisp now has nine more plate appearances than Billy Burns, even though he was the lesser player last year and the far worse player this spring. He's hitting .182/.229/.364 after 33 at-bats.

Coco Crisp blasted a solo homer in the 10th inning on Sunday, propelling the Athletics to a come-from-behind 2-1 victory over the Mariners in Seattle.

The A's trailed for most of the game until Marcus Semien tied the score at 1-1 with a solo homer in the eighth inning. That extended the game and allowed Crisp's two-out shot in the 10th inning off Nick Vincent which proved to be the difference. The oft-injured veteran outfielder finished the day 1-for-5 and is now hitting .222/.300/.444 on the young season.

Coco Crisp stole two bases and collected a pair of hits against the Mariners on Saturday night.

Given Crisp's health problems over the past year, it was nice to see the 36-year-old swipe a couple bags and go 2-for-5 with two runs scored on Saturday. He has already matched his total from a year ago. He's a good source of stolen bases, if healthy, but who knows what "healthy" even looks like for Crisp these days.

Coco Crisp (hamstring) will start in center field on Friday.

Crisp went through a full pregame routine Thursday and didn't have any issues. He's always going to be a health risk, especially with his chronic neck injury, but for now it appears Crisp will be healthy going into the season.
Apr 1 - 8:16 AM

Coco Crisp (hamstring) will go through his full pregame routine on Thursday.

If he comes out of it without any issues, he'll start in center field on Friday. Crisp has sat out the last few days with hamstring tightness, although the A's contended that the outfielder would be available to play if it were the regular season. It sounds like he'll be OK for Opening Day as long as he can avoid a setback.
Mar 31 - 9:13 PM

Coco Crisp was scratched from Tuesday's Cactus League lineup with mild hamstring tightness.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Crisp could have played if it was the regular season, but with his history, there's no reason to push it this close to Opening Day. The 36-year-old is expected to begin 2016 in a backup outfielder role.

Coco Crisp connected for a solo homer against the Angels on Friday.

The home run came against Jered Weaver. It was nice to finally see some signs of life from Crisp, who came into Friday’s action with an ugly .143/.139/.310 batting line this spring. The 36-year-old was limited to just 44 games last season and has a chronic neck condition, so the A’s aren’t counting on him at this point. He’s expected to begin 2016 in a backup outfielder role.
Mar 25 - 7:51 PM

Coco Crisp said Thursday that his wrist and elbow are "fine" and that his neck is fine "for now."

Crisp was limited to 44 games last season due to a multitude of ailments, with his chronic neck injury being the primary culprit. The neck is going to require ongoing maintenance, as he has a cervical strain that can only be repaired via surgery. The Athletics' acquisition of Khris Davis pushed Crisp to a backup role, and the club will be happy to get whatever they can out of the injury-prone outfielder. "I'm going to spring training ready to do whatever is best for the team," Crisp said. "Hopefully the manager (Bob Melvin) will view me as one of the guys he has to have in the lineup, but I'll do what's needed."
Feb 19 - 9:50 AM

According to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle, Coco Crisp (hip, ankle) has begun hitting but his status for the start of the 2016 season remains uncertain.

Crisp has seemingly dealt with a multitude of injuries during each of his professional seasons, and 2016 isn't likely to be much different. When he's on the field, he provides a nice blend of power and speed, unfortunately the injury risk makes him an extremely risky fantasy proposition.
Jan 24 - 10:44 PM

Coco Crisp (hip, ankle) is back in the Athletics' lineup Friday.

He hadn't played since Sunday due to hip and ankle soreness. With Crisp's ongoing neck issue, it's a safe bet that he's pretty much going to be day-to-day the rest of the season.

Coco Crisp is not in the Athletics' lineup Monday due to hip and ankle soreness.

Crisp was involved in a collision Sunday and is a little banged up. He should be back in there Tuesday. Mark Canha is in left field Monday.
