Coco Crisp signs with the A’s

January 3, 2012

Free agent outfielder Coco Crisp has agreed to a new two-year deal with the Oakland Athletics, a league source told ESPN The Magazine’s Buster Olney.

The veteran center fielder will earn $6 million in 2012 and $7 million in 2013 with a club option of $7.5 million for 2014 that has a $1 million buyout, according to the source. Crisp would also receive a one-time bonus of $250,000 from Oakland should he be traded, the source said.


$14 million guaranteed for Crisp is a little steep, but not too bad in the scheme of things for the A’s. They did their fair share of cost cutting this offseason in letting go Josh Willingham and David DeJesus, and trading Gio Gonzalez, Trevor Cahill, and Andrew Bailey for a haul of prospects.
