Crisp returns to lineup after foot injury
CLEVELAND -- When A's skipper Bob Melvin watched Coco Crisp limp around the dugout and clubhouse on Monday night, he figured the outfielder would need a few days off.

Much to Melvin's delight, Crisp needed only one day of rest.

"He's a quick healer," Melvin said. "We have a good training staff that stays on top of those things, we seem to get guys back pretty quickly. The day-to-day type of things, we tend to have them back sooner rather than later and that's a credit to our training staff."

Crisp fouled a ball off his right foot in his second at-bat of Monday's tilt against the Indians. He remained in the game, but the foot swelled up and he had it wrapped Monday night. He sat out on Tuesday, but Melvin inserted him atop his lineup on Wednesday, and plans to play him again for Thursday's matinee at Progressive Field.

"If he's in there today, there's a good chance he'll be in there tomorrow," Melvin said. "If I was that cautious, I probably would have DH'ed him today."
