Some news out of Oakland as the A’s announce that they’ve signed Coco Crisp to a two-year contract extension.
Crisp signed a two-year deal with Oakland prior to the 2012 season and the A’s exercised their 2014 option on him back in November. They obviously wanted more Coco than that, so now they have him through 2016 with a vesting option for 2017. The deal: two-years and $22.75 million. He is slated to make $7.5 million this year on the option.
Crisp is coming off a 2013 campaign that saw him put together a .261/.335/.444 batting line with a career-high 22 homers and 21 steals. Oakland is his fourth team, but if he plays out this deal plus the option, he’ll have eight years as an Athletic under his belt.
