FF Locker Room:
The Oakland Athletics have purchased the contract of utility infielder Luke Montz from the Triple-A Sacramento squad. He takes the place on the active roster of veteran outfielder Coco Crisp. He is up to help provide bench help.
Joining him will be right handed pitcher Dan Straily who is back up after spending one day in the minors as a spot on the active roster opened up with the A’s having to place Brett Anderson on the disabled list.
Crisp is dealing with a left hamstring strain and his return is not known, although the organization is aiming for a mid-to-late May return. Anderson, who’s transaction is retroactive to April 30th should be out for about two weeks with a sprained right ankle.
