A’s activate Coco Crisp from the disabled list

1 Comment

Coco Crisp is off the disabled list and back in the A’s lineup for today’s game after missing the past two weeks with a hamstring injury.

Crisp returned in the minimum 15 days and does so without going on a minor-league rehab assignment first, so he must be feeling pretty good. He’ll resume leading off and starting in center field, which is a nice boost to a banged-up A’s outfield.

Crisp, who’s been on the DL four times in four seasons with Oakland, was off to a great start before the injury while hitting .283 with five homers, 10 doubles, and a .943 OPS in 24 games.
