Coco Crisp CF/DH OAK 2 Days

The A's remain optimistic that Crisp (elbow) will be ready for Opening Day, CSN California's Joe Stiglich reports.

The plan is for Crisp to play Tuesday and get an off day Wednesday with the hope of being ready for the opener. The A's won't rule out a trip to the disabled list for Crisp, but manager Bob Melvin says Crisp can be ready with minimal prep time. Obviously drafting Crisp is an acceptance that there will be stretches where he misses time due to injury, because he always does, but it would nonetheless be a shame if he started off the season on the DL.

Crisp was scratched from the lineup in Tuesday's spring game due to a sore elbow,

It appears Crisp is over the elbow injury that has kept him out of the lineup for over a week. Crisp returns to his new spot in left field and should be good to go for Opening Day, unless yet another malady pops up first.
