Slumping Crisp to see neck specialist - San Francisco Chronicle

That’s not ideal.

Crisp said before the season that he believed the neck problem might be a lifelong issue. The fact that it cropped up again just 13 games after he returned from the disabled list makes it a major concern. Crisp changed the way he hit last season to deal with the neck problem, and hit .203 the final two months while dealing with the injury.

Since coming off the DL after arthroscopic elbow surgery, Crisp is batting .044, but has played extremely well defensively, and that’s despite being moved from center to left. That position switch was done largely to keep Crisp healthy. If he goes on the DL again, it will be his sixth trip since the start of the 2010 season.

Crisp, 35, is signed for $22 million over the next two years; he also has a $13 million option for 2017 that vests based on plate appearances and/or games played in 2015 and 2016.
