Crisp returns early, in lineup vs. Rays
BOSTON -- Originally expected to return to action on Monday, Red Sox center fielder Coco Crisp was a surprise starter on Sunday in the finale against Tampa Bay.
Crisp, who has been out since April 9 with a non-displaced fracture at the base of his left index finger, went 1-for-3 with two RBIs with a walk in a rehab stint with the Pawtucket Red Sox on Saturday.
It was believed that Crisp would either take part in another rehab outing or possibly join the big-league team for a Sunday workout prior to being activated on Monday.
Instead, the replacement acquired from the Indians for Johnny Damon's spot in the lineup and on the field, will suit up for the Red Sox in the series finale with the Rays.
