MLB News: Crisp To Have Surgery, Astros Make Trade

MLB.com reported on Thursday that Oakland A’s outfielder Coco Crisp will require surgery to his right elbow to remove a bone spur. Crisp is expected to be out for at least 6-8 weeks.

The 35-year old outfielder, who has been reported to be dealing with elbow soreness all spring, is entering his 14th MLB season and his sixth as a member of the A’s. In 2013 he had his best year with the A’s as he hit 22 home runs and drove in 66. This spring he was batting .133, (2 for 15).

In other MLB news, on Wednesday the Houston Astros traded utility infielder Gregorio Petit to the New York Yankees for either cash or a player to be named later.

Petit was signed by the A’s as an amateur free agent in 2001. He made his major league debut in 2008 and since has had a few minor stints in the majors, with his last coming in 2014 with the Astros. Last season he appeared in 37 games and batted .278, with two home runs and nine RBI’s.
