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.
