A's plan to keep Coco Crisp out of early Cactus League games
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12:30 pm ET) In an attempt to keep him fresh for the start of the season, the Athletics are expected to keep Coco Crisp out of game action in early on in the Cactus League exhibition season, per the Bay Area News Group. Crisp recently told reporters that he will ease up a bit in 2015 after collisions with outfield walls led to neck pain in 2014.
He was limited to only 126 games last season. He has not played more than 136 games since 2007.
A's outfielder Coco Crisp to dial back aggressiveness in 2015
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/5/15) Athletics outfielder Coco Crisp said he is going to try and ease up a bit in 2015 after collisions with outfield walls led to neck pain in 2014, per the Contra Costa Times.
“I’m going to try and rein in my aggressive game,’’ Crisp said. “It’s tough for me to try and play and not be aggressive as I would like. But I had to do that once I hurt my neck last year. I couldn’t get to as many balls in the outfield as I would have liked.’’
Crisp first hurt his neck after colliding into the outfield wall in a May 7 game. He then re-injured it Aug. 29 following another collision with the wall.
“It’s a fine line trying to play hard and not be as aggressive,’’ Crisp said. “I’m trying to walk that line, being on the field and being healthy. I’m not scared of being who I am, the kind of guy who runs into walls if I can make the catch. It’s been the mentality of mine to save my pitcher’s ERA if I can, to stop that run from crossing the plate."
Crisp added the rehab work he did this offseason has his neck and shoulders "back in playing condition." He also believes swinging from the left side of the plate will not be an issue either.
“Being this late in my career, we all felt that rehab was the best way to attack this, and it’s working,’’ Crisp said. “I don’t way to end my career with neck surgery. So far it’s going good.’’
Coco Crisp healthy enough to start Friday night

|(9/5/14) Athletics center fielder Coco Crisp has returned to the lineup for the Friday night game against Seattle. He had been out since Aug. 29 with a neck ailment.
Crisp has been limited by injury to just 103 games this season.
As expected, Coco Crisp sidelined again Wednesday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/3/14) Oft-injured Athletics center fielder Coco Crisp remains out Wednesday for the game against Seattle. He has been dealing with a neck issue that has prevented him from playing since Friday. He is targeting a return sometime this weekend for the series against Houston.
Coco Crisp aiming for weekend return
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/2/14) The Athletics believe outfielder Coco Crisp could return this weekend, according to the Bay Area News Group.
Crisp has been sidelined since Friday due to a neck injury. He received an injection to relieve the pressure in his neck Tuesday. Crisp is hitting .254/.346/.397 over 370 at-bats.
|2014 summary: Coco Crisp filed his first 20-20 season in 2013, but a regression in his home run total left him falling short last season. Crisp also isn't running as much anymore, so for the first time in five seasons, he missed out on 20 steals, though with 19, he just barely missed. That level of production over 126 games left Crisp off the list of the top 50 outfielders in Rotisserie value, though he ranked 41st in Fantasy points due to a high walk-to-strikeout ratio.|
Playing time status: The oft-injured Crisp has never played more than 145 games in a season over his 13-year career, and 131 games was his high-water mark over the last three seasons. He will be the Athletics' primary center fielder, but expect that he will have less than full-time at-bats by the time the year is done.
2015 outlook: Crisp's perennially muted plate appearance totals hurt him disproportionately in points leagues and render him as a deep mixed league option in those formats. However, even with diminished power and speed, he is still a legitimate late-rounder in Rotisserie leagues.
