      Angels' Craig Gentry: One-year deal with Angels

      Gentry signed a one-year contract with the Angels on Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports. With the addition of Gentry, the Angels have bolstered their outfield depth at a low cost, though they figure to continue exploring the trade market for a more impactful corner bat. Gentry still has decent speed at 32, but struggled mightily in 26 games with Oakland last season, and his track record at Triple-A is less than stellar (.268/.341/.346).

      Craig Gentry: Declines Triple-A assignment

      Gentry declined his assignment to Triple-A on Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the SF Chronicle reports. The veteran spent most of last season in the minors and failed to impress during 26 games with the big league club, posting a .120/.196/.200 slash line. He likely would have been relegated to a similar role in 2016, so declining the assignment at least provides him to seek a potentially more significant role for another club.

      Athletics' Craig Gentry: Clears waivers Monday

      Gentry cleared waivers Monday and was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville. Gentry wasn't particularly impressive with Triple-A last season, so the lack of interest from the rest of the league isn't all that surprising. He could have a chance to help out the big league club at some point next season, but the 32-year-old will likely just serve as outfield depth within the organization.

      Athletics' Craig Gentry: Designated for assignment

      Gentry was designated for assignment Friday. Gentry spent the majority of the season in the minors, but did see time in the majors as a September call-up en route to slashing just .120/.196/.200 in 26 games with the big league team. The 31-year-old had established himself as a reliable major league option in the past, but he struggled to find his form in 2015 and will likely have to earn an Opening Day roster spot in spring training.

      A's OF Coco Crisp (neck) not starting on Wednesday

      Athletics outfielder Coco Crisp is being held out of the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Astros. This comes as little surprise as Crisp was removed from Tuesday's game with stiffness in his neck. The team has not provided an update on his status, and should be considered day-to-day for now. Billy Burns will draw the start in center field while leading off, and the recently-recalled Craig Gentry will be in left.

"It ended up being a little bit more severe," manager Bob Melvin said per CSN Bay Area. "He'd probably tell you he could run about 70 percent. But it was getting past 70 percent (that was a problem), and it was several days in a row." To replace him on the roster, the A's recalled outfielder Craig Gentry from Triple-A Nashville. Gentry was hitting .171 in nine games in the minors.
