Report: Athletics OF Coco Crisp expected to need elbow surgery


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:35 am ET) Athletics outfielder Coco Crisp is expected to require surgery to remove a bone spur and chips from his right elbow, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The outfielder would be out for six-to-eight weeks after undergoing the procedure.

Crisp has dealt with elbow issues for much of the spring. Without his presence in the lineup, the A's will need to replace the outfielder in the leadoff spot at least until mid-May. With Crisp set to open the season on the disabled list, the A's will likely carry outfielder Billy Burns on the team's initial 25-man roster.

"I think it depends on how he feels tomorrow," manager Bob Melvin said Wednesday. "I think it's going to be a pretty good indication on what we need to do."

Melvin said that Crisp was sore Wednesday, and the team will decide Thursday if he'll need to open the season on the disabled list. It's possible he'll play during the team's three-game Bay Bridge Series against the Giants, starting Thursday.

"He's really the one guy on our team that we're not worried too much about at-bats," Melvin said. "If he could play in the Bay Bridge Series, we'd be good with that. Whether he's not, I really don't know yet."

If Crisp does open the season on the disabled list, the Athletics will likely carry outfielder Billy Burns on the Opening Day roster.

A's outfielder Coco Crisp to dial back aggressiveness in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2015) 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.’’
