Athletics | Coco Crisp close to return

Tue, 05 May 2015 18:59:41 -0700

The Oakland Athletics are close to getting OF Coco Crisp (elbow) back from a minor-league rehab stint. In fact, there is a 50-50 chance he might come off of the 15-day disabled list to lead off and play left field Wednesday, May 6, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to Crisp officially activated and then wait for him to prove his health in a game or two without any setbacks before trusting him again. He has a lot of rust to knock off after a considerable layoff.

Athletics | Coco Crisp could return on road trip

Fri, 01 May 2015 15:07:40 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (elbow) could be activated from the disabled list during the team's road trip.

Fantasy Tip: With Crisp ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) set to return soon, that could mean less playing time for Mark Canha ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) or Sam Fuld ($2,400, 4.8% of cap). It could be a fluid situation in the outfield, though, especially as the A's look to ease Crisp back into action.

Athletics | Coco Crisp ahead of schedule

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 14:18:46 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (elbow) was not expected to begin baseball activities until this weekend, but he played catch up to 60 feet and took dry swings Wednesday, April 22.

Sam Fuld ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Craig Gentry ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) will continue to have fleeting seasonal value in Crisp's absence, and in favorable matchups, Fuld and Gentry warrant FantasyScore attention.

Athletics | Coco Crisp out 6-8 weeks

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 05:59:21 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (elbow) will have surgery to remove a bone spur and chips in his right elbow. He'll be out six to eight weeks.

He's eligible at first base for the minimum $2,000 (4.0% of your cap) price on FantasyScore. He could be a first-week gem.
