Description: Jen Langosch of reports, via Twitter, that Crosby (concussion) exited Monday night's game with concussion-like symptoms.
Insight: Crosby collided with right fielder Lastings Milledge in the second inning, and was replaced in the game by Delwyn Young. (

Description: The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports Pirates' manager John Russelll said Crosby is providing leadership for young infielders Pedro Alvarez and Neil Walker.
Insight: Crosby had back-to-back three hit games on Monday and Tuesday and has been getting regular playing time lately. Still he is hitting .255 with one home run and 10 RBI this season and is not a good fantasy option. (

Description: The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports Crosby (shoulder) could be back by the weekend.
Insight: Crosby has missed an opportunity to see significant playing time at third base with Andy LaRoche suffering from back spasms. (

Description: Crosby went 2-for-4 on Sunday with a three-run home run on Sunday as he started at 1B.

Description: Crosby made a start at first base for slumping Jason Giambi and hit a three-run homer out of the ninth slot in the lineup.
Insight: Despite hitting just .212 for the season, Crosby has hits in his last five games. The A's will take offensive production wherever they can get it. Crosby might in line for more playing time. (

Description: Crosby will make his debut at a new position, second base, next week, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: Crosby lost his shortstop slot when the A's signed Orlando Cabrera. With Mark Ellis recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, Crosby could fill in. (

Description: Crosby could get some extra playing time for the A's if he is willing to be a backup outfielder, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: The 2004 Rookie of the Year has asked to be traded so that he can continue to play in the middle of the infield, but he may want to listen to the A's and see if he can boost his value as a super utility player. His bat has been missing, often due to injuries, since that 2004 season. (
Steady3/7/2009 9:14:00 PM
Description: Crosby met with the A's brass and reiterated his trade demand, according to the A's website.
Insight: Crosby is behind Orlando Cabrera at shortstop and behind Nomar Garciaparra as far as utility infielder. He still believes he can be a starting shortstop and maybe some other team will too. (
Cold3/3/2009 9:23:00 AM
Description: Crosby asked for a trade upon the A's signing Orlando Cabrera. If he stays in Oakland, Crosby will head to the bench.
Insight: There is probably not a lot of demand for a poor-hitting shortstop with limited power and a history of injuries. The days of Crosby being a fantasy entity are over (and they probably ended a few years ago). (
Cold2/22/2009 12:48:00 PM
Description: The A's may have come to the end of the line with Crosby as their shortstop. He finally stayed healthy last year but hit just .239.
Insight: Crosby's career jumped out of the gates when he hit 22 homers in 2004 as a rookie. He hit 33 combined homers in the four seasons since and hasn't been able to stay healthy. He may become a bench player. (
