Description: Athletics center fielder Coco Crisp left Tuesday night's AL Wild Card game with a right hamstring injury.
Insight: Crisp tweaked his hamstring on a swing in the top of the 11th. TBS reported it could possibly be cramps. Crisp tried to play center in the bottom of the inning but decided to take himself out. Whether it is a strain or just cramps, it doesn't matter since Oakland has been eliminated.

Description: Athletics center fielder Coco Crisp is a career .125 batter (3-for-24) versus Royals right-hander James Shields.
Insight: Leadoff hitters are supposed to get on base to be effective and this one has a problem against Shields, so shouldn't be used in fantasy lineups. Crisp batted .248 this season with nine homers, 47 RBI, 68 runs and 19 steals.

Description: Athletics center fielder Coco Crisp is not in Saturday's starting lineup.

Description: Athletics center fielder Coco Crisp has batted .161 with one homer, 11 RBI, 10 runs, zero steals and a .526 OPS since the All-Star break.
Insight: While he's gone 6-for-17 with three doubles, a triple, a homer and six RBI in his last four games, including 2-for-4 with a double and a solo shot Friday night, he's 5-for-34 (.147) against Angels starter C.J. Wilson. That combined with his slump since the All-Star break makes him an undesirable option Saturday.
