Coco Crisp (neck) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Stockton on Monday.
He's slated to play for games there before being re-evaluated, so it sounds like Crisp could be activated by the end of the week. The veteran outfielder has been on the shelf since late May with a nagging neck issue. He had just two hits in 45 at-bats before going on the disabled list. Jul 26 - 2:15 PM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Friday that Coco Crisp (neck) has been feeling better in recent days and could begin a minor league rehab assignment soon.

Crisp has been taking batting practice since Tuesday without any issues. The oft-injured outfielder has been limited to just 13 games this season due to a wide variety of ailments. He's likely going to require a lengthy rehab stint, and if he comes through it healthy could rejoin the A's at some point in early August.

Coco Crisp (neck) will take a full round of batting practice on Tuesday.

It's a big step for the outfielder. Crisp has been sidelined since late May with a nagging neck issue and had his progress slowed recently by a bout with kidney stones. A's manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday that he expects to know by early next week whether Crisp can start a rehab assignment soon.
Jul 21 - 7:24 PM

Coco Crisp (neck) has passed his kidney stones.

Crisp is also dealing with a neck injury, but at least one part of the injury equation has been solved. He could rejoin the A's after the All-Star Break, but it's very difficult to say with a player as injury-prone as Crisp.
Jul 7 - 5:25 PM

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

Athletics transferred OF Coco Crisp from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Crisp won't be eligible to return until mid-July now. The veteran outfield still has no timetable as he works his way back from compressed discs in his neck.
Jun 5 - 3:00 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.
May 28 - 7:28 PM

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

There are no immediate plans for the off-injured outfielder to undergo surgery, but also no clear timetable for his return. At this stage, fantasy owners may be wise to cut bait and free up a roster spot.
May 23 - 9:45 AM

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.
May 22 - 5:11 PM

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

The oft-injured outfielder underwent an MRI on Thursday and is scheduled to meet with a doctor in Dallas on Friday. The Athletics should provide an update on his status then, but a trip to the disabled list certainly appears to be in order.
May 21 - 10:04 PM

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.
May 21 - 5:15 PM

Coco Crisp will visit a neck specialist in the Dallas area on Thursday morning.

Crisp was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Astros with a neck injury and did not play Wednesday. It's similar to the neck problem that bothered him in 2014. The veteran outfielder could be headed to the disabled list.
May 20 - 5:48 PM

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.

It's unclear how serious the ailment might be, but with Crisp's history of neck issues there has to be some concern. The A's should have an update on his status after Tuesday's game concludes.
