SAN FRANCISCO — Oakland Athletics left fielderCoco Crisp will have surgery on his right elbow and could miss up to two months.

Crisp said before Thursday night's exhibition game against San Francisco at AT&T Park that he will have the surgery on Friday to remove a bone chip and spurs.

Typical recovery time is six to eight weeks, but Crisp sounded optimistic and earlier tweeted that he was hopeful of returning sooner.

Crisp has not played since March 23. He missed eight days earlier this spring because of pain in his elbow.

The 35-year-old has been Oakland's starting center fielder the previous five seasons, but was on the disabled list four times. The A's moved Crisp to left field in hopes of keeping him more healthy.
