Latest Update Coco Crisp (hamstring) left the AL Wild Card Game with a right hamstring injury on Tuesday. Wed Oct, 01, 10:27 AM
Is an elite defensive outfielder with both range and efficiency in his routes. Always hustles and throws accurately, too. A good overall athlete, he switch-hits with gap power and has above-average speed on the bases.
Flaws: : Is a bit injury-prone, which is partially why he's somewhat streaky at the plate. He could stand to be a bit more consistent at the dish, especially his ability to hit home runs (which tends to come and go).
Crisp left in the middle of the 11th inning with the hamstring issue after going 2-for-6 with one RBI and a run scored. The injuries are a steady part of Crisp's game nowadays which is why manager Bob Melvin rested at least once or twice a week. Moving forward, he can still be a productive player, but he's leaning more into that platoon state than he is holding a job on his own. Consider that next year when drafting.Analyst: Howard Bender
After 14 straight starts, Crisp will sit for Sam Fuld on Saturday. This is just a standard day off for him, and Crisp should be back in the lineup on Sunday. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Since returning to the starting lineup on Friday night, Crisp has gone 3-for-9 with three stolen bases as he tries to finish the regular season on a high note. Crisp is a walking injury-risk, but when he is healthy he can provide fantasy owners with a nice mix of power and speed, so if he can stay off the trainer's table down the stretch he is worthy of a starting spot in deep league formats.

This is great news for Crisp and the A's. Crisp plays hard and is a leader of this A's team, especially if they need to rally. I am concerned with his neck issues though and probably won't be starting him in my fantasy leagues until I have seen him swing the bat. Analyst: Mike Mohr
