Coco Crisp got “disheartening news” about his neck injury

2 Comments

Coco Crisp left Tuesday’s game with tightness in his neck and was scheduled to go for an MRI today. No word yet on the official diagnosis, but this isn’t very promising:

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said after Tuesday’s game that the injury is similar to Crisp’s neck strain from last year. The 35-year-old didn’t miss a lot of time with the injury, but he played through discomfort for most of the second half and finished with a disappointing .246/.336/.363 batting line.

Crisp missed all of April while rehabbing from arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow and has really struggled since his return, hitting .044 (2-for-45) over 13 games.
