Athletics Sign Coco Crisp

The Athletics have officially signed Coco Crisp to a two-year, $14MM deal that includes a club option for 2014, the team announced. News of the agreement ended 24 hours of rumors and speculation about Crisp's destination. He decided to return to Oakland despite interest from the Orioles, Cubs, Cardinals and many other teams.

Coco Crisp - A's

The deal will pay Crisp $6MM in 2012 and $7MM in 2013. The A's can exercise a $7.5MM option for 2014 or pay the center fielder a $1MM buyout. If the A's trade the Steve Comte client, he gets a one-time bonus of $250K.

MLBTR's Tim Dierkes ranked Crisp 21st among MLB free agents at the beginning of the offseason. The switch-hitter led the American League with 49 stolen bases in 2011, hitting .264/.314/.379 with 27 doubles as Oakland's center fielder. The California native seemed to prefer West Coast teams, but explained in September that he was also looking to play on a winner and find a good "financial situation" for himself.

Crisp joins Michael Taylor and Josh Reddick in the Athletics' new-look outfield. Josh Willingham signed with the Twins and David DeJesus signed with the Cubs, leaving Billy Beane, David Forst & Co. with the unenviable task of filling out an entire outfield. The A's sent Jai Miller to the Orioles today and may still be on the lookout for outfield depth.

ESPN's Buster Olney first reported the agreement. Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio heard from an unconfirmed source that Crisp was nearing a deal with the A's (Twitter link). Photo courtesy Icon SMI.

    now there’s a shocker

    Strangely the Carlos Silva signing was more riveting news of the day.

  3. Snoochies8 4 years ago

    jesus…overpay

    i liked him as an A for the last two years, but not sure if this is such a great move, considering it’s another 2 injury-prone, low obp years, at $7 million, which i feel is a little too expensive

    • Uh, the A’s can’t pocket all that revenue sharing, they gotta overpay someone, might as well be an everyday CF.

    • Lastings 4 years ago

      Oh, come on… He at least deserves a couple million for his hair…

      • Gumby65 4 years ago

        Until Oscar Gamble sues him for 14.95 Million for copyright infringement…

  4. $3513744 4 years ago

    So much for wanting to win.

  5. joeybw 4 years ago

    Trade Andrew Bailey who was predicted to get 4 million so you can give Crisp 7 million. Hmmm…..

    • Snoochies8 4 years ago

      well, they also traded gio who was set to get $4 million, cahill who’s set to get $3.5 million and breslow who was going to get over league minimum, so that point in kind of moot

      • joeybw 4 years ago

        Just futher proves my point with those comments. Why trade all that talent, especially Bailey who IMO they didn’t get nearly what they could have in return and turn around and guarantee Crisp 15 million? Yeah, there’s an option for the 3rd year with a 1 million buyout (or 7.5 to pick it up)

        • Snoochies8 4 years ago

          well as pete said, he’s more or less a stop gap for Green and Choice right now, they’ll trade him away for some prospects at the deadline, if he’s healthy and plays well

        • Bailey is an injury prone closer, the market for those is not good and I’m a huge fan of Reddick, who will play everyday and is a lock to have a better WAR than Bailey+Sweeney combined, as well as 2 teenage C+/top 25 prospects.

          Boston fans apparently have no idea how shot Sweeneys knees are. Getting rid of him and whatever salary he gets is icing.  

          • Guest 4 years ago

            Yeah. I was really high on Sweeney at one point. But it became frustrating over the last couple years to never see him reach his potential. I know he worked really hard, and has really bad knees. But I always thought he’d be better at the plate than he turned out to be.

            I’m sure Fenway will help his numbers. But he’ll definitely still be a role player (albeit a good one).

          • I honestly cant see him having much more of a career. Those knees are chronic, he wont be on the field much…

          • Guest 4 years ago

            Probably not. But I think he’ll make them a good late-inning defensive replacement, and pinch-hitter against righties.

        • Guest 4 years ago

          What??? How could you possibly be viewing any of the A’s recent trades as if they were only done so that they could reallocate the funds toward a player like Crisp?

          The Crisp signing has absolutely *nothing* to do with their recent trades. Those trades were all about their need to rebuild, and nothing more. To suggest otherwise is ludicrous.

          As a matter of fact, even if they had kept all the players they just traded, they still could have afforded to re-sign Crisp. Their payroll budget will probably be under $60M this year. But even if they still had Cahill, Breslow, Gio, Bailey and Sweeney, they still could have signed Crisp and had a payroll of approximately $51M.

    • 4M for 40 innings vs 7M for 130 games. Makes sense to me…. 

      • tdot32 4 years ago

        4 million for a good player
        7 million for an average player
        plus, the guy they got for bailey is set to be a 4th outfielder now.

        • Cowgill and Taylor are definitely not ahead of Reddick on the depth chart. No idea what youre talking about…

          • tdot32 4 years ago

            i think that if they are going to see value out of taylor, they have to play him this season. reddick isn’t good enough to lock a starting spot, as i see it, but i suppose it was my mistake in saying this. still, he’s not exactly a bright player, and my main point its not about how many games you play, its about the value of the player, and coco crisp is not worth that kind of money.

          • I think Crisp, Reddick, Cowgill and Taylor all get 400+ PAs this season. I think youre low on Reddick, he has excellent power and can play good defense. I expect him to replace Willingham except play much better defense. If he didnt have a 3.0 WAR at the end of the year I’d be shocked. He’s the surest bet out of the three young guys there imo.

          • tdot32 4 years ago

            I think that his power isn’t going to take off in oakland because of the park. its hard to project what he’s going to be like because he’s had such short stints in the bigs, but he needs to meet his expectations if the A’s hope to get value out of the bailey trade. it’s going to come down to who they want to throw out there opening day i guess

        • Cowgill and Taylor are definitely not ahead of Reddick on the depth chart. No idea what youre talking about…

        • melonis_rex 4 years ago

          Spring Training. My bet is one of Cowgill or Taylor starts in the minors. 

          • Is there any way Crisp stays healthy? I think Cowgill and Reddick spot him in CF and then Taylor and Cowgill platoon in LF, and Reddick and Taylor in RF. They really do have enough playing time for all 4. 

          • melonis_rex 4 years ago

            Oh yeah. They easily have enough playing time for all 4. And a fallback plan if the young guys can’t do it. 

          • Ernest Johnson 4 years ago

            As somebody else said above I could see all 4 getting over 400 plate appearances.  

    • tdot32 4 years ago

      agreed. they overpaid big time.

      • And also b/c the last thing the A’s need is another low OBP low SLG outfielder. They have droves of those

        • Meh, as long as they play good defense its more important. They were a better team when they went defense-heavy, and stunk last year when they bought in Willingham and Matsui.

  6. Jason Kaiser 4 years ago

    Uh what?

  7. Wow.  Who cares.  Coco Crisp holding people hostage on a decision.  This is definitely slow times for rumors.

  8. AmericanMovieFan 4 years ago

    VERY good deal for Crisp. They def. overpaid in years and dollars. As for the A’s- someone signed with them!? Holy crap! Good for them, too, I guess….

  9. He won’t last more than a year if he can stay healthy. He might not even last 3 months if he hits well. Good deal by Beane to get a CF who plays good defense and might have good value in bringing in a prospect.

  10. diesel2410 4 years ago

    Extremely dumb. 

  11. sf55forlife 4 years ago

    He’ll easily be worth his contract plus more. 

  12. Soooooooo glad it isn’t us paying him that…

    • Don’t speak too soon. There’s about a 5% he finishes this contract in an Oakland uni.

      • Ok… I don’t care what the A’s do with him, I’m just glad Cards didn’t waste 7 mil on this guy.

        • But thats my point, they definitely could still trade him and his 7 mil to the cards. 

  13. heard the A’s are still trying to sing ryan ludwick or cody ross also can some tell me why

    • Snoochies8 4 years ago

      now that they signed coco, i doubt they go for those two

      • Coco, Cowgill, Reddick & Taylor will most likely be the OFs on the opening day 25 man. Interesting bunch.

      • well i have heard they were going to sign coco and ryan ludwick or cody ross and that cowgill or taylor will be the 4th outfilder and the other one will start out in aaa so we will have to wait and see also on the espn insider it says the A’s are in talks with ludwick

  14. FamousGrouse 4 years ago

    So the A’s OF is now Reddick, Crisp, and one of Cowgill/Taylor? With a small amount of innings from Chris Carter?

    • Robert Slye Jr. 4 years ago

      Beane has indicated that Taylor hasn’t earned his way onto the Major League roster yet. I wouldn’t be shocked to see the A’s sign another free agent outfielder

    • Snoochies8 4 years ago

      it’ll be reddick in left probably, coco in center for sure, and taylor in right, with cowgill spelling all three at times, probably coco the most often

    • Carter will never set foot in an OF again, he’s strictly a DH. 

      Brandon Allen might get a handful of innings though, he’s also a DH but only Ibanez-bad in LF. Carter is the worst of all time out there.

      • FamousGrouse 4 years ago

        Jack Cust was pretty bad too. I remember once or twice seeing a fly ball hit right at him and he couldn’t squeeze it-bounced right out of his glove. I just felt bad for the guy.

        • Yeah that was rough, but his first couple years were so sweet when he was mashing. Such a bummer he lost his power.

      • CaseyBlakeDeWitt 4 years ago

        He’s worse than Adam Dunn or Manny Ramirez? I’ve never seen him play, but that’s hard to believe. You could throw a blind man in the outfield and he would catch more flyballs than Manny would have.

        • Chris Carter plays LF like a 45 year old Fred McGriff. Its just wrong. 

          And you take that back about Manny, he has the high five play to his credit. He wasn’t terrible just stoned all the time.

          • CaseyBlakeDeWitt 4 years ago

            Well all I know is what I saw when he was on the Dodgers. If you hit a fly ball to left field which forced Manny to move, it was going to get down. The only good news about that was that he couldn’t cut off any throws from the left fielder since that meant he would have to get into position to cut it off.

      • green_and_gold 4 years ago

        Allen actually played great defense at 1B.  That is partly why 1B is his to lose.  He has a good glove, not as good as Barton ’09, but has much more offensive upside than Barton. 

        Since Oakland isn’t going to win next year, I wouldn’t be too upset about having Carter in LF though.  Its not like his defense is what is going to cost the A’s a playoff spot.  With some luck, maybe he figures it out by the end of the year and can become a 1B/LF option. 

        • The A’s have an open DH spot, what youre saying makes no sense. Carter or Allen are definitely battling for that spot. Barton has a 5 WAR season under his belt and tried to play when he needed extensive shoulder surgery last year. If his shoulder is fine then 1B should be handed to him on a silver platter. He gets on base and plays outstanding D. You don’t throw a guy who really didn’t do anything other than hit 6 HR last year there over him.

          Allen is too strange to lock in. He has maybe the most power in the league, and isnt totally bad at 1B, but he just looked lost at the plate last year. The only hope is that Chili Davis figures him out and he turns into a scary masher, he’ll either be that or Sam Horn, but I’d say there’s a 80% chance he’s the latter.

          The A’s also have Kila now too…lets not forget. If I’m doing depth charts I go Barton-Allen-Kila at 1B, Carter-Allen-Kila at DH. Allen’s most likely starting at AAA unless Barton’s shoulder isn’t right. ST shall see…

        • melonis_rex 4 years ago

          Barton’s got the most upside IMO. Barton won’t bash a lot of HRs, but if he’s swinging an OBP approaching .400, he’s got a ton of value and is hands down the best 1B candidate of the 3. 

          • Guest 4 years ago

            I couldn’t agree more. I refuse to believe that 2010 was a total fluke for Barton. Especially after the news broke that he was playing injured last season.

            I’d love to see Barton back at 1B this year, with Carter at DH.

  15. Just glad my ChiSox didn’t sign him, they’re always linked to his mediocre self and it drives me nuts. 

    • jpkinney7 4 years ago

      Isn’t everyone on the Sox pretty much “mediocre”.   Crisp would fit right in.

  16. joeybw 4 years ago

    As long as this doesn’t hurt the market, Rays still have 2 gaping holes and other ares where they have a guy who can stand there and play (or crouch, in Molina’s sense) but they can easily improve at SS and C, they simply only “need” a 1B and DH.

  17. Tony Matias 4 years ago

    When Coco turns into Figgins… then all the complainers are warranted in their complaints.

  18. this was such big news i received three texts from mlbtr alerting me to it

    • JacksTigers 4 years ago

      I got four.

    • southpawryno 4 years ago

      It’s very annoying because it’s sending as two messages for each ‘new alert’

    • Triple Hawpes Brewed 4 years ago

      lol at your name, nice. reminds me of “manbearpig,” but not sure where that’s from.

  19. JacksTigers 4 years ago

    Why have I gotten 4 texts for this?

    • Okay we get it. You got more texts than anyone else about it.

      Bully for you

      • JacksTigers 4 years ago

        This would be a lot funnier if I said it a bunch of times but I mentioned it twice making your comment kind of pointless and very dumb.

        Bully (?) for you, too.

  20. Robert Slye Jr. 4 years ago

    Overpay? Perhaps. I’m more concerned about the years. Assuming he’s healthy, big assumption… one would think that Green or Choice would be ready to take over starting in 2013.

    Like someone else said, the A’s have to spend money on someone though. You might as well add Crisp who will be the veteran leader in the outfield to teach to the youngsters. Weeks and Crisp at the top of the lineup was very effective last year.

  21. Encarnacion's Parrot 4 years ago

    Anti-climatic just got underrated.

  22. I wonder what Crisps trade value will be at around the trade deadline with the receiving team getting 1 1/2 seasons

  23. Crisp decided to take biggest offer and hopes to get traded.

    • James Attwood 4 years ago

      If he stays healthy and hits even close to average, he’ll be traded to a contender in need of OF help by the deadline. One of the shrewder moves Ihave seen Beane make this off season. Most of what he has been doing just seems to boggle the mind. But then again, if Bailey breaks down in spring training and Cahill shows all of his warts in Arizona, Beane will look like a genius.

  24. bayareabeast 4 years ago

    the a’s will most likely be horrible this year..but at least they’ll have that bangin’ afro in center again

  25. coachofall 4 years ago

    I’m not a big Crisp supporter but I don’t see this as an overly awful baseball move. Crisp has had equal to better WAR numbers over the past few seasons and is essentially the same age as both Cuddeyer and Willingham who got more years and money. Crisp got market value in today’s baseball market. He also had similar WAR numbers (though doesn’t posess the obvious upside) as Adam Jones who is about to get very expensive and would cost a boatload of prospects. Surprised more teams wouldn’t take the chance on a two year deal for coco.

  26. Jamie Sayer 4 years ago

    I’m just glad he didn’t have a show telling the world what team he chose.

    • I bet he has a cool press conference that showcases whatever strange new piercings he might have now.

  27. Latrappe 4 years ago

    Wow… Crisp is not a 7 per player. What an awful signing for the A’s. I though they didn’t have money to spend…

  28. dont think the A’s are done in talks with ryan ludwick,cody ross and connor jackson will probly sign one of them as well and out of all them i would rather have ludwick he has a little power atleast

    • Ugh to all 3 of those guys, but I can see it happening. This is the depth chart right now:

      1B: D Barton, B. Allen, K. Kaaihue, A. Rosales
      2B: J. Weeks, A. Rosales, E. Sogard
      SS: C. Pennington, E. Sogard
      3B: S. Sizemore, A. Rosales, E. Sogard
      C: K. Suzuki, A. Recker, J. Donaldson
      LF: C. Cowgill, J. Reddick, M. Taylor, B. Allen
      CF: C. Crisp, C. Cowgill, J. Reddick
      RF: J. Reddick, M. Taylor
      DH: C. Carter, B. Allen, K. Kaaihue

      Oakland also has Green, Parker, Choice, Mitchell, Cardenas, Peterson, Spina & Norris who could all feasibly make the jump to the bigs in 2012, thats a large part of the 2013 core for sure though…

      • bayareabeast 4 years ago

        “Ugh to all 3 of those guys”
        lololololol

        • I cannot adequately express the massive amounts of malaise Conor Jackson’s skills as a ballplayer bring.

    • melonis_rex 4 years ago

      Do not want any of those guys. Crisp makes sense since he’s a center fielder. None of those others do. 

  29. Anybody know offhand how Michael Taylor ended up in Oakland? His b-r page has his last transaction as being part of the Halladay Phi/Tor trade, but doesn’t mention anything further….

    • bg7kd 4 years ago

      He was part of the trade it was a 4 way trade.  We sent Brett Walace to Toronto for Micheal Taylor

      • tdot32 4 years ago

        it wasn’t a 4 way trade. the phillies traded lee seperate and toronto just flipped for wallace.

    • A’s traded Brett Wallace for him.

  30. tdot32 4 years ago

    coco cripes…

    they should’ve just kept rajai davis, he does the same things and doesn’t cost $7 mil per

  31. I like the move as an A’s fan. We needed at least one legitimate Major League baseball player in the field.

  32. northsfbay 4 years ago

    Does this mean the A’s will lose 95 games instead of 100 games?

  33. OaklandFan22 4 years ago

    welcome back coco!

  34. melonis_rex 4 years ago

    I REALLY don’t want to use primarily WAR to evaluate players, but all this talk about Crisp being an overpay is really really misguided. 

    2010: 3.3 WAR (in 75 games)
    2011: 2.2 WAR 

    Guy’s an league average, if not above average, player. He’s getting paid less than what an average player should expect to get on the FA market (about 9MM/yr using 2010 market values, definitely higher now). 

    His value is in his defense and not only what he provides at the plate. Even 100 loss teams have to field a team.

    • $1534453 4 years ago

      Yeah. The going rate for a ‘Win Above Replacement’ is generally around $5M. So as long as he can produce a 1.5 WAR each of the next two seasons, this deal will be worthwhile. And he’s certainly capable of doing that (and more), even when you account for likely DL time.

      This was a good signing. With all the rookie pitchers set to debut for the A’s over the next couple seasons, it’ll be important for them to have the best defense possible. And Crisp offers good range and years of experience at a key defensive position.

      I also believe his OBP will improve this season, even if its only by 15 points, or so. Especially if Chili Davis is as effective at coaching switch-hitters as he says he is.

  35. rootman1010 4 years ago

    projected lineup:

    1. Crisp cf
    2. Weeks 2b
    3. Suzuki c
    4. Carter dh
    5. Barton 1b
    6. Sizemore 3b
    7. Reddick rf
    8. Taylor lf
    9. Pennington ss

    i didn’t get to see many a’s games last year, but is that at least close to what they would do if the season started today?

    • You nailed the players but I hate that batting order. I’d go

      1. Weeks 2B
      2. Barton 1B
      3. Crisp CF
      4. Carter DH
      5. Reddick RF
      6. Sizemore 3B
      7. Taylor LF
      8. Suzuki C
      9. Pennington SS

      Reddick, Sizemore and Taylor might end up being the same player. 20 HR, 800 OPS are their current ceilings. If that happens the A’s will be much better than people expect, but reality is they’d be lucky if one of them gets there.

  36. mondaymorninggm 4 years ago

    the a’s traded off all their guys for a bigtime crop of prospects but then they couldnt just pocket all that money. their payroll was at 23 mil b4 this move so i think its fine. its only 2 years. they should get one more stopgag player then wait for all these new guys to emerge. maybe a joel pineiro for 4 mil who can be flipped at the deadline for more prospects. they definitely movd up to the top m2 or 3 minor league rankings after the last 2 months

  37. FrankTheFunkasaurusRex 4 years ago

    Not a bad deal by any means… but don’t get the logic behind this move at all

    • The CF market is kind of grim. If any other teams’ CF gets hurt and they need a stopgap veteran not locked into a big contract, Crisp fits that bill to a tee, and Beane can get more prospects to add to the farm.

  38. why do none of you have brandon allen in your line ups he will beat out carter and barton he will be in the lineup 

    • Not if he cant get on base he wont. I do think an Allen who OBPs .330 is one that plays everyday though, I like him but he has a lot to prove.

  39. JackPackage 4 years ago

    Why are people so offended by Coco Crisp getting 2/14? If healthy he is easily worth $7 million a season. That being said, other than trade bait, I don’t really see the point in Oakland signing him, they have 3 players at MLB level who could possibly play CF (Taylor, Reddick & Cowgill) and a few in the minors, it’s not like they are even going to sniff a winning season in the AL West for the next few years…

    Still… if Crisp’s OBP gets up to around .330 and his; defense, avg and baserunning/stealing all stay good, he’s going to fetch something from a contender at the trade deadline.

    It just feels like the A’s are in a sort of limbo right now, they need to know what’s happening with the team’s location and then have a plan of action. At the moment it’s just:

    1. Acquire talented prospects.
    2. Let prospects develop until their price gets too expensive.
    3. Trade developed prospects/keep undeveloped ones.
    4. See Step 1.

    Forever on a loop. They need more money… end of story.

  40. what’s up with MLBTR keep reposting old news?

    • the deal went official today, before it was just in the makings. makes sense to up it one more time now its actually happened.

  41. Chioakcisco 4 years ago

    My interpretation: Even the MLB thought the A’s were being too cheap, so they forced them to spend money.

  42. No, Im explaining why the A’s would pay a guy $14M while they’re rebuilding. Pouting? lol, what the?

  43. joeybw 4 years ago

    Don’t make this personal Mr. Banuelos. You should be happy, the Yankees should definatley break camp with you in that rotation.

  44. green_and_gold 4 years ago

    What happens when they call up Taylor/Green?  They will be out of OF positions…flip Crisp to a contender at the deadline for prospects?

  45. Guest 4 years ago

    He’ll definitely be a trade candidate at some point (provided he’s healthy). But Michael Taylor, as of right now, still looks like one of the favorites to start in LF this season (with Crisp in CF and Reddick in RF).

    As far as Grant Green goes, I don’t think he’s anywhere near being ML-ready. Michael Choice may actually be closer than Green, given that Green was just very recently converted from SS to CF.

  46. Jon Melton 4 years ago

    Not bad if hes healthy enough to maintain trade value.

  47. Great range in CF too. Noodle arm, but he makes catches most cant. 

  48. The a’s aren’t even eligible for revenue sharing since Oakland is in the top 15 fan bases in the mlb. Goes to show how bad the ownership is at bringing people out to the games. 

  49. hahaha ok sure whatever you say

  52. melonis_rex 4 years ago

    Considering the A’s are one of the 13 teams initially eligible for the Competitive Balance Lottery, their market size is DEFINITELY one of the small ones.

    And to the best of my knowledge, Forst never said any such thing. He may have said they’d “like” for him to earn the starting CF job in spring training. And they’ve definitely said that they “hope” he can be an everyday OF. But nothing more than that.

  58. I still think Cowgill gets more starts than Taylor, I’d calm down a bit. There’s room for everyone knowing how injury-prone Crisp is.

  59. I don’t care either way…it’s just that the A’s stockpile these useless outfielders crusty old outfielders and never give their kids a chance.

    I realize that. But just because Green has a full season of AA under his belt, and Choice only has a full season of High-A under his belt, it doesn’t mean that Choice can’t be the first one to make the big league (assuming they both eventually make it).

    Granted, every player has a different learning curve. But Green has VERY limited experience in CF. It could take him a long time to fully adjust to the position. And for all we know, he may never be good at it. It’s far too soon to tell. As much as I hate to say it, there’s a chance he could wind up being another Adrian Cardenas — a man without a true position.

    Plus there’s always the possibility that he’ll struggle against PCL pitching like Cardenas did in his first stint there, and have to be sent back down to Midland for a while.

    Don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying to be pessimistic. I’d love nothing more than to see Green dominate the PCL this spring, and force his way onto the A’s 25-man roster in the summer. But realistically, the odds of that happening are very slim. And if Choice can dominate the Texas League the same way he did the California League, there’s a pretty good chance that they’ll wind up teammates in Sacramento later this year.

  61. There’s not a snowballs chance in hell Green ends up like Cardenas. He has moved from the hardest INF position to the hardest OF position, I’m sure he could easily play LF or 2B.

    3 years ago very few people thought there was a snowballs chance of Cardenas ending up like Cardenas either.

    As I said, I’m really pulling for Green. I hope he becomes a star. But there’s no guarantee that he, or any other prospect in baseball, will make it.
