Athletics | Coco Crisp ahead of schedule

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 14:18:46 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (elbow) was not expected to begin baseball activities until this weekend, but he played catch up to 60 feet and took dry swings Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp is likely still four to six weeks away from returning, so while it is encouraging he is making strides, don't expect fantasy contributions anytime soon. Sam Fuld ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Craig Gentry ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) will continue to have fleeting seasonal value in Crisp's absence, and in favorable matchups, Fuld and Gentry warrant FantasyScore attention.

Athletics | Coco Crisp takes dry swings

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 18:15:40 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (elbow) played catch up to 60 feet and took dry swings Wednesday, April 22. Manager Bob Melvin said Crisp felt good.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp is making his way back from surgery in early April to remove a bone spur and chips in his right elbow, so he will be sidelined at least another three to five weeks based on the initial timetable. FantasyScore owners need not bother with him for a while.

Athletics | Coco Crisp out 6-8 weeks

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 05:59:21 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (elbow) will have surgery to remove a bone spur and chips in his right elbow. He'll be out six to eight weeks.

Fantasy Tip: This could open up a spot in left for Mark Canha, who is hitting .296-6-13 this spring. The 26-year-old Canha hit .303 with 20 homers and 82 RBIs in 465 at-bats at Triple-A last year. He's eligible at first base for the minimum $2,000 (4.0% of your cap) price on FantasyScore. He could be a first-week gem.

Athletics | Coco Crisp likely to land on DL

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 16:59:14 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (elbow) felt some soreness in his elbow during an intrasquad game, according to manager Bob Melvin, and a disabled list stint seems likely at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) should be avoided on FantasyScore for the first week. 1B/OF Mark Canha ($2,000, 4.0%) is having a big spring and could fill in at a bargain.

Athletics | Coco Crisp could play in opener

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 18:11:58 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (elbow) is cleared to play in a minor-league game Tuesday, March 31. If he is able to get into a spring game by Wednesday, April 1, or the Bay Bridge Series against the San Francisco Giants, manager Bob Melvin says Crisp could be ready for the opener.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp is brittle, so fantasy owners who draft him in yearly leagues will want to have plenty of depth at the outfield position.

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.

Athletics | Coco Crisp could return Saturday

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 07:10:51 -0700

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

Fantasy Tip: Crisp ($4,500, 9,0% of cap) has some ground to make up. Monitor his progress the next few days before deciding to use him as a low-end OF option on FantasyScore.

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.
