Latest Update Coco Crisp is not in the Athletics' starting lineup on Monday. Mon Sep, 01, 01:04 PM
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 remains sidelined with a neck issue that manager Bob Melvin says will hold him out for a few days. Sam Fuld will replace him in center field Monday.Analyst: Howard Bender
Fantasy players in weekly leagues need to get Crisp out of their lineups. Crisp is droppable in 10 or 12-team leagues.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Crisp strained his neck colliding with the outfield wall on Friday. The severity of the injury is unknown, so it is tough to tell how long he'll be out for, though it's doubtful he'll land on the DL considering rosters expand on Monday. Hopefully the time off will also help him get his hitting stroke back, as he's hit just .191 in August. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Fantasy players in shallow leagues should probably just drop Crisp if he cannot go Saturday, though he still provides some power and speed when healthy.Analyst: Steve Pimental
