Coco Crisp may be starting the regular season on the disabled list. A few days ago it appeared he was nearing a return to game action, but he apparently wasn't as far along as he had hoped to be in his recovery from an elbow injury. If the team sends him to the DL, expect spring training sensation Billy Burns to make the team and get a chance to show what he can do in regular season action. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: At this point, it would be a good idea to let someone else draft Crisp. He is a good player when he is active, but he tends to get injured often and can't be relied upon for fantasy.

Fantasy Impact: Crisp has been sidelined with an elbow injury, but provided he has no further setbacks, he should be ready to play on Opening Day. Crisp is a nice source for runs scored and stolen bases when healthy.

Coco Crisp injured again

Coco Crisp was a stratch today with soreness in his left elbow. He is expected to rest for two-to-three days and then be re-evaluated. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: This is Crisp's third injury this spring. None have been serious, but this is just a reminder that Crisp is very injury-prone. When healthy he will steal a lot of bases, score some runs, and hit for a decent average. He's just a risky player to draft due to his issues staying on the field.

Fantasy Impact: Crisp is an excellent fantasy asset if he can stay healthy. The problem is he does tend to get banged up often. Keep this in mind when ranking outfielders heading into your fantasy drafts.

Fantasy Impact: Although the injury is not considered serious, Crisp is often injured so any ailment is a concern for him. If you are interested in drafting him this year, be sure to monitor how he does once he returns to the lineup. When healthy, Crisp is an excellent source of stolen bases and runs scored.

Manager Bob Melvin has decided to shift Coco Crisp out of center field and into left field this season. Crisp missed 36 games due to injury last season and the team is trying to keep their leadoff hitter healthy. (Source: San Jose Mercury News)

Fantasy Impact: The fact the team is trying to limit Crisp's injuries is good news for fantasy owners. Crisp should see a little less wear and tear in left field. Give Crisp a slight uptick in value going into fantasy drafts.

Fantasy Impact: This doesn't really impact the regular season, but it is a step in the wrong direction for the often-injured Crisp. Crisp also had pinkeye during the 2012 season and missed nine games.
