From Jane Lee of MLB.com comes word that A’s outfielder Coco Crisp will sit out of Sunday’s series finale against the Mariners due to a bruised right foot.

Crisp fouled a ball off the foot on Saturday evening and was eventually removed from the Oakland lineup after attempting to play through the discomfort for a couple of innings. He’s not in danger of doing any more damage to the foot, but the 31-year-old center fielder has been banged up for much of the second half and is probably due for a few days off.

Crisp, 31, is batting .268/.323/.385 with seven home runs and 39 stolen bases in 121 games this season.

    An MRI of Coco Crisp’s foot revealed no structural damage. However, the A’s have requested further tests because he no longer crackles when submerged in a bowl of milk.
