Athletics Injury Update: Coco Crisp out with neck issue

By on 6/05/2014 10:15:00 AM

The Oakland A's continue to be the best team in baseball and are now 37-22 on the season, following a 7-4 victory over the New York Yankees. They are first in the league in runs scored and first in ERA and have the best run differential in the Major Leagues. On the injury front, outfielder Coco Crisp, who has missed time last month with a neck issue, sat out last night's game with the same problem. Craig Gentry started in his place in center field.

John Hickey, who covers the A's for the Bay Area News Group, tweeted the following confirming Crisp's status for yesterday's game.
Crisp suffered the injury nearly a month ago in the game against the Seattle Mariners, as our own Raymond Bureau reported. Crisp crashed into the wall while making a sensational running catch. He stayed on the ground for over five minutes according to's Jane Lee, but he then walked off the field on his own power. Since returning to the lineup, Crisp has played in 17 straight games before missing yesterday's game.

Crisp, in his 13th Major League season, has played for the Indians, Red Sox, Royals and A's. In 45 games this season, he is batting .256 with three home runs and 16 RBI.  He set a career high with 22 home runs last season and lead the league in stolen bases with 49 in 2011.  Crisp has a career average of .272 with 111 home runs, 547 RBI and 288 stolen bases.
