Coco Crisp (elbow) is likely to begin the season on the disabled list after feeling soreness in his right elbow while batting in a minor league game Tuesday.
Crisp had experienced improvement after being given a cortisone injection a week ago, but he hit another bump in the road Tuesday. He hasn't played in a Cactus League game since March 23, so the A's can backdate a disabled list stint. There's no guarantee he'll be ready to go when his 15 days are up, however. Oakland is now expected to be without both of their corner outfielders on Opening Day, as Josh Reddick is sidelined with a strained oblique. Mar 31 - 7:57 PM
