OAKLAND -- A's outfielder Coco Crisp was held out of the lineup for Friday's series opener against the Nationals, instead going for an MRI on his strained neck.

Results of the MRI showed "nothing out of the ordinary," manager Bob Melvin said after the game, "so he's literally day to day."

Crisp, who suffered the injury while making a tremendous catch against the center-field wall Wednesday, is not expected to be available Saturday.

In Crisp's stead, Craig Gentry got the start in center field Friday, while John Jaso replaced him in the leadoff spot of the lineup as designated hitter.
