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
Mariners designated LHP Mike Kickham for assignment.
At 26-years old, it looks like the Mariners were fed up with Kickham's antics, as his inflated ERA and walk rate gave them no indication that he could get a grasp on professional pitching. Even if he gets picked up, don't expect Kickham to get a call to the show at any point this season. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Packers have released C Joe Madsen.
Madsen isn't a very athletic center and in today's NFL, it appears that is the direction that the position is beginning to head. The Packers said good riddance, but there is nothing saying that there won't be at least a couple of teams looking to give Madsen a training camp invite. Analysis: Dom Murtha
