A’s outfielder Coco Crisp missed a month earlier this season due to a fracture in his left pinkie finger.  And now he’s dealing with that same injury again.

According to Jane Lee of MLB.com, Crisp has been diagnosed with a re-fracture in his pinkie and will visit a hand specialist Sunday to determine whether or not he can finish out the year.  Given the amount of time he missed due to the initial break, our guess is he will be shut down.

Crisp, 30, has posted an impressive .315/.393/.463 batting line, two homers, nine RBI and 10 stolen bases in 54 at-bats this month and has 19 stolen bases since the beginning of August.

The A’s haven’t made any decisions yet on his $5.75 million club option for 2011.  Mychael Urban of CSN Bay Area guessed in late August that it will be exercised.

    Coco has been a plus defender and a surprise on offense in his, wait for it, 75 games with the A’s this year. Last year he played 49 with the with KC, and the year before 118 with Boston. Sadly, he is unlikely to play enough to warrant a full salary even at A’s rates, and he doesn’t really hit enough for a contender. I can see the A’s giving this some serious thought though, because the even sadder reality is that they have nothing for outfield help in the system. I think they’ll hold their noses and pick up the option.

    Usually, the toast is crisp, but now Crisp is toast.
    Sorry.

    .315/.393/.463 batting line…Coco is hot this month. Sorry also.

    We’ll have to have a beer for him, too. This could turn into a long afternoon.
