Oakland Athletics outfielder Coco Crisp will reportedly miss 6-8 weeks with a right elbow injury, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The Athletics didn’t expect to have Crisp out for this long of a stretch, but they knew he would start the season on the disabled list, they just didn’t expect him to be out for this long period of time. Crisp will be undergoing surgery to remove a bone spur and chips in the elbow some time this week.
Crisp hit nine home runs with 49 runs batted in hitting at an average of .246 on the season, along with 19 steals in 126 games last season for the Athletics.
