Coco Crisp is not in the Athletics starting lineup on Saturday.

The Athletics are cautiously easing him back into everyday action, so even after collecting four hits on Friday, he'll take a seat on the pine in favor of Sam Fuld on Saturday. He's hitting .265/.342/.353 with one RBI in 10 games since his return.

Coco Crisp (neck) went hitless in five at-bats in his return to the lineup Thursday.

Crisp didn't start Wednesday after his nagging neck injury stiffened up on him again, but he pinch-hit in that game and was back in there the next night. He remains a poor bet to stay healthy, but it appears he just had a minor setback.
Aug 7 - 8:20 AM

Coco Crisp is not in Wednesday's lineup due to neck stiffness.

The A's seem to be indicating that it's minor, but it's still obviously worrisome given Crisp's history. The veteran outfielder just returned to action on Monday after missing nearly three months with a chronic neck issue. He's a poor bet to remain healthy over the final two months of the season.

Coco Crisp was scratched from the Athletics' lineup Wednesday.

There's no immediate word on the reason for the scratch, but obviously the worry is that Crisp's neck is acting up again. The A's should have an update on him shortly. Mark Canha moved from first base to left field in Crisp's spot, while Ike Davis entered the lineup at first.

Coco Crisp (neck) went 2-for-4 with a run scored Monday against the Orioles in his return from the disabled list.

Aug 4 - 8:33 AM

Athletics activated OF Coco Crisp from the 60-day disabled list.

Crisp is finally ready to give it a go again after being sidelined since mid-May with his ongoing neck issue. He had only two hits in 45 at-bats before going on the disabled list and remains a major health risk going forward. However, the A's plan to start him in left field and bat him second in the lineup as long as he's able to stay on the field.
Aug 3 - 5:23 PM

Coco Crisp (neck) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

Crisp has been out since late May with his chronic neck injury. He had just two hits in 45 at-bats before going on the disabled list and is a poor bet to remain healthy over a long period of time. A's manager Bob Melvin did note that he plans to hit Crisp second, though, which helps make him an interesting gamble in deeper leagues.

Coco Crisp (neck) will remain on his minor league rehab assignment with High-A Stockton throughout the weekend.

He is scheduled to play in games on Friday and Saturday before being re-evaluated by the Athletics medical staff on Sunday. If all goes well, there's a chance that he could rejoin the A's lineup on Monday.

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.
Jul 24 - 8:26 PM

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.
