Coco Crisp needs surgery, will miss 6-8 weeks

We learned the other day that A’s outfielder Coco Crisp would start the season on the DL. Now Susan Slusser of the Chronicle reports that he’ll miss way more time than 15 days:

The Chronicle has learned that Coco Crisp is expected to need surgery to remove a bone spur and chips in his right elbow, and he would miss six to eight weeks after the arthroscopic procedure.

Josh Reddick is going to start the season late too due to a strained oblique. You have to wonder, then, if Billy Beane won’t try to make a deal for an outfielder.

Certainly not the way the A’s wanted to break camp this year.
