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.

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.
Jun 4 - 1:38 PM

Coco Crisp belted a solo home run in Monday's win over the Twins.

Crisp led off the bottom of the first inning with a solo blast off of Ervin Santana. He later added a walk, reaching base in two of his four plate appearances. Crisp has been used almost exclusively in the leadoff spot this month and has been playing every day between left and center field. His .250/.304/.436 batting line isn't great, but he's offered a little category juice with five homers and five steals.
May 30 - 6:49 PM

Coco Crisp (heel) went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in his return to action Saturday.

Crisp hadn't played since Monday due to a heel issue, but obviously he's feeling healthier. Injuries will always be a concern with him, but he's hit three homers and stolen four bases this season when on the field.
May 8 - 8:27 AM

Coco Crisp (heel) could be available off the bench on Friday.

Crisp hasn't played since Monday due to a heel issue but is feeling better. He's hitting .208/.293/.389 with three homers and four steals on the season.
May 6 - 5:27 PM

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.
Apr 16 - 2:25 AM

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.
