Athletics close to deal with Coco Crisp

New, 2 comments

ESPN.com's Buster Olney is reporting that the Athletics are closing in on a one year deal worth 5 million dollars.

Crisp, who has a .277 lifetime average and a .377 OBP, posted a disappointing .228 average during an injury-shortened 2009 season.

This move probably means that Ryan Sweeney, Rajai Davis, and Scott Hairston will be shuffled around the corner outfield spots, unless Crisp really struggles out the gate.

One possibility that the A's could be considering is by bringing in Crisp, it gives them the option to move him if he has a good first half of the season.

The Padres, White Sox, and Cubs had interest in the outfielder.
