Coco Crisp left Tuesday's game against the Royals with a right hamstring injury.
Crisp tweaked his hamstring on a swing in the top of the 11th. He took the field for the bottom of the frame but decided he couldn't go. It's an ailment that could conceivably keep him out a while if the A's advance, but more should be known about his status after the game. Oct 1 - 12:14 AM

Coco Crisp reached base in all five of his plate appearances, on two singles and three walks, but the Athletics were handed a walk-off loss against the Rangers on Thursday.

Crisp was also caught stealing for just the fifth time in 24 attempts when he tried to swipe second base in the third inning. The speedy outfielder has been solid out of the lead-off spot for the A's, hitting .253/.344/.373 with nine home runs, 47 RBI, and 67 runs scored.
Sep 25 - 11:06 PM

Coco Crisp went 0-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Mariners, leaving him with a .192 average in 151 at-bats since the All-Star break.

Crisp is another one of the A's players who lost any and all ability to hit when Yoenis Cespedes was traded. Besides the .192 average, he has a modest total of 15 walks since the break. He hit .291 with 42 walks in 254 at-bats during the first half.
Sep 13 - 2:10 AM

Coco Crisp (neck) returned to the Athletics lineup on Friday, going 1-for-5 with a stolen base.

Crisp was sidelined for nearly a week after aggravating his neck injury when crashing into the outfield wall on Friday. The chronically injured outfielder has suffered a wide array of ailments this season and should be considered day-to-day for the remainder of the regular season.
Sep 6 - 4:36 AM

The Athletics are hoping that Coco Crisp (neck) will be ready to return to the lineup by Friday.

Crisp received more injections for his ailing neck Tuesday. The outfielder figures to be a day-to-day proposition for the rest of the season, so fantasy owners can't count on a whole lot. Those in weekly leagues might want to just cut bait if you're in a roster bind.
Sep 2 - 6:59 PM

Coco Crisp (neck) isn't expected back in the lineup for a few more days.

Crisp aggravated his chronic neck injury when he crashed into the wall Friday. He could receive a pain-killing injection when the club returns home. Sam Fuld is in center field Sunday in Crisp's place.
Aug 31 - 2:06 PM

Coco Crisp is not in the A's lineup Saturday.

Crisp came up sore after crashing into the center field wall Friday while trying to rob Chris Iannetta of a home run. Sam Fuld is leading off and Craig Gentry is playing center on Saturday night against the Angels.
Aug 30 - 5:05 PM

Coco Crisp was removed from Friday's game against the Angels after crashing into the center field wall while attempting to rob Chris Iannetta of a home run.

Crisp actually had the ball in his glove, but it came jarred free when he crashed into the wall. His removal is likely precautionary, given his length injury history, but the Athletics should provide an update on his status later. Craig Gentry replaced him in center field.
Aug 29 - 11:55 PM

Coco Crisp went 2-for-4 with a double, homer and two runs scored in Friday's 5-3 win against the Angels.

Crisp came into play on Tuesday 9-for-73 (.123) since the All-Star break, and he's gone 7-for-18 (.388) with at least one extra-base hit in his last four games. Could his nagging neck problems be behind him? That, kind reader, is a question for a future episode. The veteran has always been a must-start in AL-only leagues, but mixed leaguers who benched Crisp may want to revisit the matter now that he's punishing the ball again.
Aug 23 - 1:18 AM

Coco Crisp singled, tripled and drove in three runs as Oakland held off the Mets in a 6-2 Tuesday victory.

And oh boy, was it needed. Crisp has battled a chronic neck injury while looking absolutely helpless in the batter's box in the second half, entering this game 9-for-73 (.123) since the All-Star break. His owners are a bit shell shocked, as Crisp slashed a robust .291/.387/.449 in the first half. He had only one extra-base hit and one RBI in his past eight games, and both came on Monday. Hopefully we're seeing the beginnings of a strong six-week run to finish the season.
Aug 20 - 1:34 AM

Coco Crisp tripled in three runs and walked as Oakland's designated hitter Friday in a 6-5 victory over the Twins.

Crisp's bases-loaded triple gave him his first extra-base hit since July 8 and as many RBI as he had in his previous 15 games combined. Of course, his recent slump can be explained by the injuries he's accumulated. The A's probably should have just put him on the DL at some point while he was nursing his sore neck. As is, he's hit just .143 in 42 at-bats since the All-Star break.
Aug 9 - 1:28 AM

Coco Crisp is back in the Athletics' lineup Tuesday.

He's in the designated hitter spot but is expected to man center field on Wednesday. Crisp's chronic neck injury figures to be a day-to-day issue for the remainder of the season, so fantasy owners in daily leagues will have to keep a close eye on things.
Aug 5 - 7:54 PM

Coco Crisp (neck) entered Monday's game against the Rays as a pinch-hitter and ended up going 0-for-1 with a walk and a strikeout.

It was his first game action since July 26 due to ongoing neck soreness. He's expected to return to the A's starting lineup on Tuesday.
Aug 5 - 4:56 AM

Coco Crisp (neck) will take batting practice Monday and could be available off the bench if it goes well.

Crisp hasn't played since July 26 due to a chronic neck issue. It's an injury he's going to have to deal with for the remainder of the season, as whether he plays or not figures to be a day-to-day adventure.
Aug 4 - 7:22 PM

Coco Crisp (neck) is out of the A's starting lineup again Monday.

Crisp hasn't played since July 26 due to a chronic neck issue. However, he was able to hit in the batting cages on Sunday without incident, so it sounds like he might not be too far away.
