Athletics | Coco Crisp expected to start in LF

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 16:28:47 -0800

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp is expected to start in left field for the A's in 2016, if he's healthy. However, the 36-year-old played in just 44 games last year because of neck issues. 1B Mark Canha will see time at first base, but he, along with OFs Sam Fuld, Jake Smolinski and Andrew Lambo can fill in in the outfield.

Fantasy Tip: Canha gives fantasy owners the most to like of this group after drilling 16 home runs and driving in 70 RBI in 2015. How many games can you realistically expect Crisp to play given his age and injury concerns? There's a good chance he becomes a bench player even if he's healthy.

Athletics | Coco Crisp swinging a bat

Sun, 24 Jan 2016 23:51:17 -0800

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (ankle, hip) has started to hit, but he said Sunday, Jan. 24, that he will not know until spring training what kind of shape he is in.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp could be limited to start the season. If you plan to take Crisp in fantasy, plan to have plenty of depth on hand since he has a propensity for injury.

Athletics | Coco Crisp is starting in left field

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 16:27:44 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp is starting in left field and batting sixth against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Wednesday, Sept. 9. OF Jake Smolinski is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has been a disaster this season with a .475 OPS. He should be viewed as a desperation start in all fantasy formats Wednesday, including FantasyScore. Smolinski ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has flashed some upside, but he is riding an active 7-for-40 stretch with a .464 OPS. Neither player warrant ownership in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Athletics | Jake Smolinski hitting in five-hole

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 14:57:01 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Jake Smolinski is batting fifth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Monday, Aug. 31. OF Coco Crisp is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Smolinski ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has been receiving starts against lefties lately, but he doesn't boast outstanding numbers with a .237/.338/.390 slash line against southpaws. He is a risky FantasyScore play Monday. Crisp ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) remains a low-end option in all fantasy formats, and you can do better in the majority of seasonal leagues. After all, he currently sports a .154/.235/.202 line.

Athletics | Mark Canha playing left field

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 11:44:34 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B/OF Mark Canha is batting and playing left field against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Allen Webster Sunday, Aug. 30. OF Coco Crisp is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Canha ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has taken over as the A's primary first baseman, he finds himself in left field because Stephen Vogt ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is getting a break from catching and playing first base instead. Canha has had a solid month, hitting .318 with two homers and 16 RBIs in 85 at-bats.

Athletics | Coco Crisp receives start

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 15:42:03 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp will start in left field against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Jhoulys Chacin Saturday, Aug. 29, and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitting .241 with two RBI this month, but owners should be able to find better options to use on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Coco Crisp sitting vs. Arizona

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 15:23:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. OF Jake Smolinski is starting in left field and batting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Chase Anderson Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Crisp ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. He currently cannot be started with confidence in any format, either, as Crisp owns a .152/.236/.202 slash line for the season. Smolinski ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has been solid for Oakland with a .946 OPS through 35 at-bats, but it is a small sample size, and he shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a dice roll at FantasyScore Friday.

Athletics | Coco Crisp not in lineup

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 17:06:29 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25. OF Jake Smolinski is starting in left field and hitting sixth against Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery.

Fantasy Tip: On the season, Smolinski ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is hitting a measley .196 (18-for-92), but he does have 10 hits in his first 32 at-bats for the A's, including two home runs and eight RBI. Still, he's a low-end outfield option in daily contests while taking hacks in a pitcher-friendly environment.

Athletics | Coco Crisp has mixed results against Iwakuma

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 10:19:08 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp is hitting .188 (3-for-16) in his career against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma, but Crisp has two home runs and a double. Crisp faces Iwakuma Monday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is batting .283 (13-for-46) with no home runs and two RBI since his return from the DL. He's not guaranteed to be in the lineup every day, though, and he won't offer you much power or stolen bases on FantasyScore. With Iwakuma coming off a no-hitter and pitching very well since his return from the DL, Crisp is one to avoid in daily games.

Athletics | Coco Crisp still resting

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 11:17:48 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (hip, ankle) remains out of the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19, and the team is hoping he can return Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Jake Smolinski was called up and is starting in left field today against Los Angeles Dodgers starter Alex Wood. He'll be cheap on FantasyScore, but shouldn't be seen as anything more than a deep sleeper who'll save you salary cap space.
