by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

No surgery for Athletics OF Coco Crisp; DL still in question


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) Surgery has been ruled out for Athletics outfielder Coco Crisp's neck, as that could potentially end his career, manager Bob Melvin told reporters Friday, per the Bay Area News Group. Melvin added that a decision has not been made on whether the club will place Crisp on the disabled list or not.

Crisp initially injured his neck in May of 2014 after colliding into the outfield wall. He aggravated the injury on Aug. 29 following another collision with the wall, before the issue flared up again this season.

Crisp has just two hits in his first 45 at-bats this season.

However, Crisp didn't provide any details other than that. 

Crisp began experiencing tightness in his neck two days ago and went to see a specialist in Dallas about it on Thursday. This is obviously not the kind of news the Athletics needed with the way their season has started. 

Crisp has only managed two hits in 45 at-bats this year.

A's OF Coco Crisp (neck) not starting on Wednesday


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Athletics outfielder Coco Crisp is being held out of the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Astros. This comes as little surprise as Crisp was removed from Tuesday's game with stiffness in his neck. The team has not provided an update on his status, and should be considered day-to-day for now.

Billy Burns will draw the start in center field while leading off, and the recently-recalled Craig Gentry will be in left.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Athletics veteran OF Coco Crisp finally breaks string of futility


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2015) Athletics outfielder and leadoff hitter Coco Crisp singled in the fifth inning Wednesdsay against Boston, which would be no big deal if it had not snapped a hitless streak that had reached 39 at-bats going back to last season.

Crisp, who was 0-for-25, was immediately wiped out on a double play. He displayed a sense of humor about finally breaking his string of futility, taking a mock bow and asking for the ball, per the Boston Herald.

He did not shatter the dubious team record for most consecutive at-bats without a hit, but he certainly gave it one heck of a run and nearly overtook a legend. Slugger Jose Canseco established the mark of 40.


Athletics' Marcus Semien jumps to No. 2 spot on Tuesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) With Billy Burns receiving the night off in favor of Sam Fuld, the Athletics moved Coco Crisp to the leadoff spot and Marcus Semien to the No. 2 hole Tuesday night against Boston, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reports.

Oakland is considered a home favorite (-120) against the Red Sox, per VegasInsider.com.


Athletics' Crisp batting second, Semien eighth Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2015) Athletics left fielder Coco Crisp is in the lineup and batting second in Monday's game against the Red Sox, bumping shortstop Marcus Semien to the No. 8 spot.

Crisp has led off in each of his three starts since coming off the disabled list but is 0 for 15 at the plate. Semien became a fixture in the second spot in late April and early May and also filled that role over the weekend, but he'll move back to the No. 8 spot for Monday's matchup.

The Athletics are favorites (-118) at home against the Red Sox, per VegasInsider.com.


With A's OF Coco Crisp back, Mark Canha could see time at 1B


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) With outfielder Coco Crisp healthy enough to return to baseball, the Athletics have a question as to what to do with Mark Canha, who's hitting .271 this season. 

One solution for the time being is to ease Crisp back in and rotate him with Canha in the outfield still, which is what manager Bob Melvin said via the San Francisco Chronicle on Wednesday. 

Another is to play Canha at first base so that he and Crisp can be in the lineup together. 

This season, Canha has played 20 games in the outfield, six at first base and one at third base. He's not in the lineup Wednesday as Crisp is in left field.

Crisp was immediately inserted into manager Bob Mevlin's starting lineup, playing left field and hitting in the lead-off spot.
