Tyler Ladendorf and Mark Canha debut: Watching dreams come true

There's something wonderful about seeing rookies succeed. The 2014 Oakland Athletics played 104 games without a rookie appearing in a game, the longest mark since Earl Weaver's 1971 Baltimore Orioles played the first 152 games with veterans. Billy Burns broke the seal last year in the midst of an injury crisis that left the A's without Craig Gentry and Coco Crisp, and just before the team traded for Jonny Gomes and Sam Fuld. This year's rookies arrived in Game #3, and this time the sight of new players did not introduce questions of how in the world the team would survive the stretch drive,...

Replacing Coco Crisp: Can Mark Canha save the Oakland A's?

Platoon flexibility for the Athletics hangs on a razor's edge with Coco Crisp gone for six to eight weeks. The math is simple enough. If the Athletics carry 13 position players, at least five must be good enough against hitters on each side so that the remaining eight can platoon. Without more everyday players, however, there is no way to give a player in your ideal lineup a day off without batting a player you would prefer not bat on the wrong side of his platoon split. Without Coco Crisp for the next six to eight weeks, the A's face just that problem. When Josh Reddick returns on April...

Oakland A's injury news: Coco Crisp now likely headed to disabled list

It's looking like the competition between Tyler Ladendorf and Billy Burns is no competition at all for opening day. Hedging against a potential trip to the disabled list, the Oakland Athletics had Coco Crisp play in a minor league game contest today. Good thing. Melvin says Crisp felt some issues with right elbow in minor league camp game. That sounds a lot like he's a DL candidate to open season. — Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) March 31, 2015 Crisp has not played in a major league spring game since March 23 and was a late scratch on March 24 with elbow soreness. Like with Josh...

Coco Crisp increasingly likely to go on Oakland A’s DL

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Tempe Diablo Stadium Manager Bob Melvin said that Coco Crisp did not come through today’s action at minor-league camp as well as hoped. Crisp, who went 0 for 3 with a walk, has not played for the A’s since March 23 because of a sore right elbow, his second stint of missing time with the same problem. On Tuesday, Melvin said, “He had some issues, a couple swings bothered him.” Because Crisp has not played in a big-league exhibition since March 27, which is the first date teams can backdate the DL, he could come off the DL on April 11, same as
