Crisp to sit Sunday after fouling ball off foot
OAKLAND -- A's outfielder Coco Crisp left Saturday's game against the Mariners after fouling a ball off his right foot for a second straight day and will sit Sunday as a precaution.

Crisp took the ball off his foot in the first inning but played through 4 1/2 innings before Ryan Sweeney was inserted as a pinch-hitter in the fifth and remained in the game for the next frame in center field.

Crisp, who has played through multiple injuries this season, was 0-for-2 before his departure but had entered the game batting .289 with two home runs and nine RBIs over his previous 10 contests after collecting just five hits in his previous 34 at-bats.
