Coco Crisp Nearing Agreement With Athletics By Tim Dierkes [December 20 at 12:14am CST]

Coco Crisp is nearing an agreement with the Athletics on a one-year deal in the $5MM range, MLBTR has learned.  The deal will include an option for 2011.  Crisp had been talking to the Padres as well, and his agent Steve Comte expected a decision before Christmas.    

Crisp, 30, tallied only 215 plate appearances with the Royals this year due to shoulder injuries.  He had surgery on both shoulders during the summer and plans to be ready for Spring Training.

Given his salary, Crisp figures to be penciled in as the starting center fielder in Oakland.  Scott Hairston, Rajai Davis, and Ryan Sweeney would battle for playing time in the other two spots, unless someone is traded. 

 

Huh?? My guess is one of the other OF's is on their way out for a 3B or SS, but at this point who the hell knows.
