Update: Coco Crisp was scheduled to get an MRI on his stiff neck Friday, after it did not respond to treatment Thursday.
Obviously this isn't a very positive update as an MRI means the team is looking for damage to the vertebrae that may not appear on a normal x-ray. You can consider Crisp day-to-day still because it's early, but you'll have to pay close attention for updates which should come sooner than later. Make sure that you have a contingency plan in place should Crisp be out for any real length of time. Craig Gentry will likely be the fill-in at center for the A's. ANALYST: Howard Bender
