Manager Bob Melvin revealed Friday that Crisp (neck) is dealing with kidney stones and is resting at home, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Crisp's status for the remainder of the season was already in peril due to a neck injury that may end up requiring surgery, and the kidney stones add only another complication to the outfielder's recovery process. At this point, the Athletics are likely not even thinking about when Crisp will resume baseball activities; his long-term health remains the greater priority.

Crisp (neck) was optioned to the 60-day disabled list Friday.

Having last played in a game May 19, Crisp can now officially be ruled out through the All-Star break, which was already the expectation. He's no lock to return this season, and he may need career-threatening surgery.

Crisp (neck) will undergo a bone scan Monday, Joe Stiglich of CSNBayArea.com reports.

Crisp is also expected to receive an epidural injection Monday to ease the pain in his sore neck. The scan is just a procedural measure for neck injuries, and it's still expected that Crisp will be out past the All-Star break.

Crisp (neck) will not take part in any baseball activities for at least a month, CSN California's Joe Stiglich reports.

While no timetable has been provided, a return before the All-Star break now seems highly unlikely. Crisp still hopes to avoid a surgery that could be career-ending, and a specialist has recommended he get an epidural injection.

Crisp (neck) has been placed on the 15-day DL by the Athletics.

This isn't looking good for Crisp, who is trying to rehab his recurring neck injury and avoid surgery, which could be career-ending, the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reports. He'll be eligible to return June 7, but given how nagging the issue has been, it could be longer until he comes back.

Crisp (neck) is dealing with the same injury that affected him in 2014. He will try to rehab the injury and go through treatment to avoid surgery, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Crisp's disc issue in his neck could land him on the DL, but no official decision has been made at this point, according to Slusser. If Crisp has to undergo surgery, manager Bob Melvin stated that it would likely end his career.

Crisp (neck) is not in the lineup Thursday against the Rays, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports.

The news doesn't come as much of a surprise as Crisp is slated to meet with a neck specialist Thursday and wasn't expected to return to the lineup. His status should become clearer after visiting with the specialist, but Sam Fuld will assume the left field duties Thursday in his stead.
