Crisp went 2-for-5 with a run scored and a stolen base in Monday's 5-0 win at Seattle.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Crisp has already swiped five bags in 2016 after managing just two in 44 appearances last season, but the 36-year-old clearly doesn't possess the 30-plus steal speed he once had. Billy Burns is clearly the bigger threat on the base paths near the top of the Oakland lineup, although the switch-hitting Crisp is proving that he's not cooked yet with hits in seven straight.

Crisp went 3-for-5 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Rays.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He's been unable to build any momentum at the plate, recording three multi-hit games but also coming up hitless in three over eight May starts. Unless Crisp becomes a more reliable fantasy producer, he's a tough player to find a roster spot for in shallower formats.

Crisp went 2-for-3 with two walks, a double, one RBI and three runs in Monday's loss to the Red Sox.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After a terrible first month in which the veteran hit just .219, Crisp is off to hot start in May, going 6-for 16 (.375) with a pair of doubles and five runs. In 44 games last season (missed most of the season with a neck injury), the 36-year-old looked like he had lost a step when he swiped just two bags in two attempts. However, Crisp seems to have found his stride early in 2016 as he's already 4-for-6 in 24 games. The outfielder will need to contribute in the steals category to be relevant in most leagues.

Crisp went 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in Saturday's 8-4 victory over the Orioles.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 36-year-old continues to struggle overall at the plate, slashing just .234/.310/.416, but the three hits were the most he'd garnered in a game this season. The 14-year veteran has been able to provide a bit of pop this season with three homers, but is unlikely to approximate the career-high 22 gopher balls he launched with Oakland in 2013.

Crisp is not in the lineup Friday against the Orioles.

Competitive Edge Analysis

This is the third game in a row that Crisp will not start, which could be due to his rough .208 batting average he's posted thus far. Khris Davis will move into left field, while Billy Butler takes Davis' spot as the designated hitter.

Crisp is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Mariners.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Following an 0-for-4 showing with two strikeouts Monday, Crisp's average has dropped to just .208 in the early portion of the season. He'll get a day off Tuesday, while Khris Davis will take over in left field and bat cleanup against Hisashi Iwakuma.

Crisp went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer, a run and a walk Friday against the Astros.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Crisp's third blast of the season gave the Athletics an early lead in a game they'd go on to win. Although he's struggling with a.230 batting average, he's moved his OPS up to .767.

Crisp is out of the lineup Thursday against Detroit.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Crisp started each of the previous three games and six of the last seven, playing a mix of left field, center field and designated hitter. Though he only has 12 hits in 58 at-bats (.207 average), Crisp does have two home runs and four stolen bases, along with a strong 10:8 K:BB ratio. Crisp's injury history will likely lead to extra time off, but he still figures to start at least four or five games most weeks.

Crisp is out of the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays, John Hickey of the Oakland Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Crisp seems to have settled into at least a semi-regular role in the A's outfield and DH platoon of late, having started in the team's previous three games. He's starting to come around with five hits and four walks over those three games, but he'll still likely sit out a couple times a week to rest his 36-year-old legs.

Crisp went 2-for-3 with a homer, a walk, a steal, an RBI and two runs against the Yankees on Thursday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Now that's how you fill up every column of the box score. The veteran speedster is coming off a tough, injury-shortened 2015 in which he hit only .175, and he's only at .195 this year even after Thursday's effort, so we'll need to see more from him before he can be considered anything but a low-end speed play best reserved for deeper formats.
