MESA, Ariz. -- In an effort to help Coco Crisp stay healthy, the Oakland A's have decided to move the oft-injured veteran from center field to left field. Craig Gentry and Sam Fuld will form a platoon in center for the speed-centric A's.
According to manager Bob Melvin, the decision was made this offseason following extensive discussions with the front office, and it was relayed to Crisp shortly after he arrived at camp.
