With Josh Reddick out for the next 4-6 weeks, it would be nice if 36-year old switch-hitting outfielder Coco Crisp could step up his game. Crisp has played in 32 games for the A’s so far this year and he is 27 of 115 (.235 avg, .702 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 3 homers, 13 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. He has now played in 76 games in his last two years and he is 49 of 241 (.203 avg) with 29 runs scored, 3 homers, 19 RBIs and 6 stolen bases. He has been dealing with neck issues the last couple of years, so it’s doubtful that he can start full time. The A’s just hope that he can start hitting like he used to when he first got to Oakland.
