Crisp is not in the lineup for Thursday's contest against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Crisp will get the day off after going 0-for-4 on Wednesday against Houston. He has had a rough month of July, hitting .196/.302/.399 with no home runs and only four RBI during 46 at-bats. Jake Smolinski will get the start in center as Billy Butler mans the designater hitter position for Thursday.

Crisp went 0-for-4 on Wednesday to drop his batting average to .237.

EDGE Analysis

Crisp's hitless Wednesday dropped his batting average in July to under .200 in 46 at-bats. Crisp has not stolen a base since May 23rd and without those swipes, Crisp provides very little fantasy value. In addition to his current struggles, it appears the A's will start to look at some younger players, costing Crisp playing time in the process.

Crisp is out of the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Crisp will be on the bench for a second straight game and could begin to lose playing time with the Athletics experimenting with Jake Smolinski as their regular center fielder. The team still has Billy Butler around at the DH spot and could give Danny Valencia more looks in that role as well, leaving fewer starts left over for Crisp to pick up.

Crisp is not in the lineup Saturday against Toronto, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

This seems to be a standard day off for the 36-year-old outfielder. Jed Lowrie will bat leadoff and Jake Smolinski will take over in center field in Crisp's absence.

Crisp received a one-game suspension Friday after throwing his bat in the direction of an umpire in Thursday's game, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Crisp tossed his bat and helmet in the direction of umpire D.J. Rayburn after a called strikeout in the fifth inning of Thursday's game against the Astros. Crisp said following the game that he didn't intend to hit Rayburn and he would be seeking him out to apologize. Either way, Crisp looks to miss a game with a possible fine due to his actions. The 36-year-old is batting .243 with 38 runs, 37 RBI, and five stolen bases this year.

Crisp is not in the lineup Wednesday against Minnesota, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

It looks like a routine day off for Crisp, who's started each of the last four games in the outfield. The A's will go with an alignment of Khris Davis in left, Billy Burns in center and Josh Reddick in right Wednesday against the Twins' Ervin Santana.

Crisp is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

This looks like a routine day off for Crisp, who extended his hitting streak to eight games with a double in Thursday's contest. Khris Davis will return to left field as Jake Smolinski steps in for his first career start in center field against lefty Jeff Locke. Look for Crisp to be back atop the order Saturday against right-hander Chad Kuhl.

Crisp is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Billy Burns is set to take over in center field Friday to add a left-handed bat to the top of the A's order as they face righty Jered Weaver. Crisp, who has three hits in his last eight at-bats, figures to rejoin the lineup Saturday.

Crisp went 2-for-3 with a home run and a walk in Wednesday's loss to the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Crisp's sixth homer of the year was a solo shot in the fourth inning off Brewers' starter Junior Guerra, and his first since May 30. The 14-year veteran also struck out for the 35th time this season, and is on pace to near his career high of 84 strike outs, which came in 2007 as a member of the Red Sox. If owners started with realistic expectations for a 36-year-old outfielder nearing the end of his career, then most should be happy with the overall production Crisp has provided so far in 2016.
