Left fielder Crisp returns from neck injury for Athletics

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Oakland Athletics left fielder Coco Crisp has been activated from the 60-day disabled list after being sidelined with a strained neck since May 20.

Crisp was in the lineup and batting second for his return Monday night in the opener of a three-game series against the Baltimore Orioles. Manager Bob Melvin said he expects Crisp to play a couple of games then get a day off as he gets back into the flow.

The A's optioned outfielder Jake Smolinski to Triple-A Nashville to clear roster room. Oakland also recalled right-hander Arnold Leon from Nashville to get a better look at the reliever in a new bullpen role, Melvin said. Right-hander Dan Otero also was optioned to Nashville.
