A's to pick up Coco Crisp's $7.5M club option for 2014
A's General manager Billy Beane told reporters Friday that the club will indeed pick up Coco Crisp's club option for next season.
Athletics outfielder Coco Crisp is coming off what could probably be called his career year at age 33 -- especially from a power perspective. So it isn't much of a surprise that general manager Billy Beane told reporters (Susan Slusser) Friday that the A's will pick up Crisp's option.
The option is for the 2014 season and worth $7.5 million. Had the A's declined to pick it up, Crisp would have gotten a $1 million buyout and become a free agent.
Crisp hit .261/.335/.444 (119 OPS+) with 22 doubles, 22 homers, 66 RBI, 93 runs and 21 stolen bases this season for the A's, setting career highs in home runs, runs, OPS+ and WAR, among other categories. He then parlayed that into a huge ALDS, where he hit .389/.455/.611 with two doubles and a triple.
