Crisp, Jackson out with leg injuries

Crisp, Jackson out with leg injuries

BALTIMORE -- Leg problems forced A's outfielders Coco Crisp and Conor Jackson out of the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale with the Orioles.

Manager Bob Geren said that Jackson's hamstring has been bothering him for the last several days, so he held him out of Thursday's starting lineup.

"He's day-to-day, [it's] something he's been dealing with for a while, a week or so," Geren said.

Crisp's situation also is a day-to-day one. Geren said that Crisp's legs are "a little spent," and that he needs a day off.

Geren said it's not the result of last night's big crash into the wall at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, but from a bunch of things. The manager expects Crisp back for Friday's series opener in Cleveland
