Report: A's outfielder Coco Crisp needs elbow surgery, out 6-8 weeks
Crisp has been bothered by the elbow for most of the spring. Oakland is already without rightfielder Josh Reddick, sidelined for at least the first five regular season games with a right oblique strain.
Even with Reddick's and Crisp's health issues, the A’s have scored 190 runs in 30 Cactus League games, the most in the majors. Crisp, who is set to begin his fifth disabled list stint in the past six seasons, dealt with a neck injury last season.
Crisp, 35, hit .246 with nine home runs, 47 RBIs and 19 stolen bases last season for the A's, who start the regular season April 6 against the Texas Rangers.
