The one thing the Indians know about Coco Crisp's thumb injury is that it's bad enough to put him on the 15-day disabled list. Things get sketchy after that.
Crisp told reporters before Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Los Angeles Angels that he felt he'd be ready to play in seven to 10 days after spraining his thumb sliding into third base Tuesday night. He said team doctors told him it would take three weeks to heal.
The Indians placed Crisp on the DL on Wednesday based on a magnetic resonance imaging exam of the thumb. A hand specialist also will evaluate the test results.
It will be interesting to see what happens with the Indians outfield once Coco gets healthy...
