Dizziness, nausea keeping Coco Crisp out of A’s lineup

8 Comments

Last night Coco Crisp was out of the A’s lineup for the sixth time in seven games as dizziness from an inner-ear infection continues to make him nauseous.

Manager Bob Melvin admitted that Crisp may have returned too soon when he played Monday, telling Jane Lee of MLB.com that the outfielder “had some struggles as the game went along.”

Lee reports that Crisp “is expected to stay away from baseball activity until Friday.” Had he not played Monday a backdated disabled list stint would make a lot of sense, but that one appearance means he’d have to sit out another two weeks if moved to the DL.
