Athletics | Coco Crisp shooting for Tuesday

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 14:53:50 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (elbow) is slowly engaging in light baseball activities over the weekend with an eye on returning to the active roster Tuesday, March 31.

Fantasy Tip: Be wary when taking Crisp, as pain in the right elbow could mean a lengthy stint on the disabled list. Right now Crisp should be drafted in middle to late rounds only, the later and better, and stashed away.

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (elbow) could return to spring action Saturday, March 28.

Athletics | Coco Crisp back on the field

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 16:12:03 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (elbow) surprised teammates and manager Bob Melvin by taking part in warmups Thursday, March 26, as he was supposed to be out a few days. Crisp is nursing a sore elbow and received a cortisone shot Tuesday, March 24.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries are nothing new to Crisp ($4,500, 9.0% of cap), however it is encouraging he is feeling better so quickly. At 35, Crisp is a long way from his prime and only returned nine home runs and 19 stolen bases last season after going 20/20 in 2013. He is well within late-round-flier territory in deep mixed leagues and unlikely to have any major fantasy impact outside of runs and stolen bases. He is aggressively priced and an ill-advised option at FantasyScore, too.

Athletics | Coco Crisp receives cortisone shot

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 16:58:20 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (elbow) received a cortisone shot. He's been dealing with reoccurring elbow soreness and will be out a few days.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp isn't a stranger to dealing with injuries. He hasn't played in more than 140 games in a season since 2007. Crisp is a late-round option who can help teams in stolen bases, while also potentially reaching double figures in homers.

Athletics | Coco Crisp injury update

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 17:29:43 -0700

Updating a previous report, Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (triceps) MRI results received Tuesday, March 10, showed no structural damage. He'll remain out at least a few days.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp is no stranger to being bitten by the injury bug. Thankfully, it appears he dodged a bullet here. Crisp remains a middle- to late-round target for his potential for double-digit homers and 20-plus steals.

Athletics | Coco Crisp undergoing MRI

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 09:46:50 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp's (triceps) X-rays on his lower triceps came back inconclusive Tuesday, March 10, and he'll now go for an MRI exam Tuesday. The team will have a better idea of his timetable after that.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp is 35 and has never played more than 145 games in his career. That alone makes him a very unattractive fantasy baseball option. When healthy, though, he can be a sneaky source of runs and stolen bases. Crisp is, at best, a late-round selection for stolen bases in deep mixed leagues.

Athletics | Coco Crisp moving to LF

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 10:20:16 -0800

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp will be moved from center field to left field this year in an effort to keep him healthy as he ages. OFs Craig Gentry and Sam Fuld will form a platoon in center field. Crips played in just 126 games in 2014 due to a lingering neck issue that he suffered while crashing into the outfield wall, and he hasn't played in more than 136 games since 2007. Crisp has appeared in left field 232 times in his 13-year career, including 138 times in 2205. Manager Bob Melvin expects Crisp to remain exclusively in left field this spring.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that the 35-year-old Crisp has had trouble staying healthy and on the field late in his career should tell you everything. When healthy, he's not a bad source for runs and stolen bases, but how much can you count on him? Consider him a late-round choice in deeper mixed leagues to round out your outfield group.

Athletics | Coco Crisp battling pinkeye

Sun, 01 Mar 2015 12:42:53 -0800

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (eyes) could miss the start of the Cactus League season because of pinkeye, after he was sent home from workouts Saturday, Feb. 28. Crisp previously battled pinkeye in September 2012, missing a total of nine games.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp is expected to be available in the middle rounds of mixed league drafts and should be good for approximately 10 homers, 50 RBIs, 20 steals and an average hovering around .260, provided that he stays healthy.

Athletics | Coco Crisp plans to stay healthy

Thu, 05 Feb 2015 11:07:56 -0800

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (neck) plans to take it a little more easy in 2015 in an effort to stay on the field more often. His aggressive style of play led to many collisions with the outfield wall and neck pain that subsequently led to a drop in productivity. "I'm going to try and rein in my aggressive game," Crisp said. He's confident the rehab work he did in the offseason has "my neck right and my shoulders back in playing condition." Crisp thinks swinging from the left side, which was a problem for him due to his neck, won't be a problem this year, even without surgery.
