Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp went 0-for-4 with a walk Tuesday, May 12, against the Boston Red Sox. Crisp has no hits in 25 at-bats this season since coming off the DL following elbow surgery. His regular-season hitless streak is at 38 at-bats since last Sept. 26, tied for the second-longest in Oakland history. The record is 40 straight hitless at-bats by Jose Canseco in 1986.
Fantasy Tip: Crisp ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) should be benched and kept out of all formats until he proves he can hit live pitching. He's having a horrendous slump at the moment.
