Oakland A's outfielder Coco Crisp agreed to a two-year contract extension earlier today, which runs through the 2016 and includes a vesting option for 2017.

The 34-year old Crisp, who is frequently referred to as the spark plug of the team, batted .261 with 22 home runs and 66 RBI and 21 stolen bases during the 2013 season, with the A's again winning the AL West. His stolen base numbers show an 87% success rate, which ranks him as the best in A's history,

On defense, Crisp is also one of the most prolific outfielders on the team, currently owning a 138-game errorless streak.

Crisp was also voted the 2013 Jim “Catfish” Hunter Award winner by his teammates, and is expected to be the team's leadoff man when the season kicks off on April 1 against the Seattle Mariners.
