A’s lose Coco Crisp and Brett Anderson to DL after 19-inning game

Angels center fielder Peter Bourjos was immediately placed on the disabled list after getting hurt in Monday night’s 19-inning marathon and now two A’s players from that game are also headed to the DL.

One is center fielder Coco Crisp, who left the game in the 13th inning with a strained hamstring, and the other is left-hander Brett Anderson, who tossed 5.1 innings of one-run ball out of the bullpen before exiting in the 18th inning after tweaking his already sprained ankle.

Dan Straily, who started Monday’s game in place of Anderson, will step into his rotation spot for at least the next two weeks. Chris Young would be the fill-in for Crisp, but he’s day-to-day after leaving in the 15th inning with a quadriceps injury, so Yoenis Cespedes may see some action in center field.

Mammas, don’t let your babies grow to play in 19-inning baseball games.

    Anybody still asking whether the A’s have too many starter-capable outfielders?

      The same people are also asking whether the Dodgers have too many starting pitchers.

    You only find out that you don’t have enough at a given position after you get rid of some of your “excess”. It’s the way of the universe.
