Coco Crisp went 2-for-5 with a home run, one RBI and two runs scored during the A's 12-1 drubbing of the Rangers on Wednesday.
Crisp has been streaking of late, going 5-for-13 (.384 BA) over his last three games, resulting in three runs scored, two extra-base hits (1 HR) and one RBI. It appears as if Crisp is finally over his latest hamstring injury and can now be trusted to be atop the Athletics starting lineup on a regular basis. As long as he can stay off the trainer's table he is a must-start in most fantasy formats. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Update: Nene (calf) will not play Saturday.
The Wizards are thin in the forecourt, now with Hilario out as well as Kris Humphries. He was a game-time decision earlier, but the pre-game shootaround appear to have shown his lack of capacity to play on Saturday. Jared Dudley and Drew Gooden will be asked to carry on in place of the injured Wizards. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
