ARLINGTON -- A's outfielder Coco Crisp, who has been sidelined by pinkeye, showed enough improvement on Tuesday to take part in baseball activities for the first time in nearly a week. Crisp hit in the inside batting cages at Rangers Ballpark and joined teammates for their pregame workout, even shagging a few balls in the outfield seemingly without much trouble. A's manager Bob Melvin said Crisp is now seeing out of his left eye well but that his right eye remains an issue. Still, some improvement is better than none.
"This is kind of the day we were targeting to get him some baseball activity," Melvin said. "Where it goes from here we're not sure but certainly more encouraging than yesterday."
