Coco Crisp is not in the Athletics starting lineup on Wednesday.
Crisp is dealing with a sore hamstring and by sitting tonight he will get two more full days off as the A's do not play again until Friday at which point the team is hopeful Crisp could return. Craig Gentry will again get the start in center and is batting 8th versus Angels red hot starter Tyler Skaggs.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
The Rangers released Ryan Ludwick on Sunday.
Ludwick was notified a couple days back that he would not be making the big-league team and was allowed to search for another team. He has struggled in Spring Training and hasn't been able to get over the .700 OPS mark the last two seasons. The Rangers will look internally to create outfield options for the 2015 season.
