Josh Reddick went 4-for-5 with a solo home run and two RBI singles as the Athletics topped the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Reddick started the scoring with an RBI single in the first inning, ripped a solo home run in the third, and added another RBI single in the eighth. Despite a late start to the season, Reddick is firing on all cylinders, batting .346/.424/.587 with six home runs and 25 RBI.
May 13 - 12:59 AM

Josh Reddick hit a three-run homer in the seventh inning of Saturday's extra-innings loss to the Rangers.

Reddick was all over the place in this one and has been on an absolute tear as of late. His three-run homer off of Anthony Bass in the seventh inning put the cap on a six-run inning and helped the A's to a 7-3 lead, which the A's bullpen promptly threw away. Still. After the 3-for-5 night, Reddick's now working on a 10-game hitting streak and for the season, he's slashing .385/.444/.615. His oblique injury from spring training seems like a distant memory. Though with Reddick, the next injury is always potentially lurking around the corner.
May 3 - 1:25 AM

Josh Reddick provided a two-run single and a solo home run as the Athletics won against the Angels on Tuesday.

Reddick, who stepped to the plate four times on the evening, tied the game at 2-2 in the first inning with a single to plate Marcus Semien and Stephen Vogt. He provided insurance in the sixth inning with a solo home run to right field. Reddick has been an asset with the bat despite starting the season on the disabled list, hitting .360/.418/.580 with two home runs and 11 RBI in 55 plate appearances.

Josh Reddick drove in a run with a triple in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

Reddick finished the game 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored. The triple was his first of the season and extended his current hitting streak to five games. Given that he opened the 2015 campaign on the DL with an oblique injury (and has not played more than 114 games in either of the last two seasons), it's a great sign that he feels healthy enough to push himself on the bases. His current hot streak has pushed his slash line to an impressive .348/.412/.522.
Apr 26 - 8:01 PM

Josh Reddick went 2-for-4 with two singles in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

Reddick hit his first home run of the season on Saturday and kept the good times rolling on Sunday despite hitting out of the eight-hole. He has now recorded four hits in his last eight at-bats and appears to be putting a spring oblique injury behind him. There's no doubting Reddick's offensive ability. When he's healthy, his bat is good for power, though he won't add much in terms of average. Reddick hasn't played in more than 114 games in either of the last two seasons.
Apr 19 - 6:40 PM

Josh Reddick hit his first home run of the season in Saturday's 5-0 win over the Royals.

Reddick launched a three-run shot off Yordano Ventura in the fourth inning. Next batter Brett Lawrie paid the bill, as Ventura plunked him and was ejected. Lawrie's hard slide into Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar on Friday set all of this off. Extracurricular activity aside, Reddick finished the game 2-for-4. He had been on the shelf for more than a month as he recovered from an oblique injury. Reddick hit 12 home runs in his 2013 and 2014 campaigns, both of which were shortened by injuries. When healthy, he's a potential 20-plus home run player.
Apr 18 - 10:23 PM

Athletics activated OF Josh Reddick from the 15-day disabled list.

Reddick got through a couple rehab games with no issues and will be in the lineup on Sunday against Felix Hernandez and the Mariners. It's been over a month since the outfielder first injured his oblique.
Apr 12 - 11:32 AM

Josh Reddick (oblique) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Sunday.

Initially the A's had targeted a Saturday turn, but with the club squaring off against southpaw J.A. Happ, they'll give Reddick an extra day. His return should cut into the playing time of Mark Canha, and perhaps Marcus Semien as Ben Zobrist will be free to be utilized all over the infield.
Apr 10 - 9:18 PM

Josh Reddick (oblique) will play in a rehab game with High-A Stockton on Thursday.

It will be his only rehab game assuming all goes well, as Reddick will drive from Stockton back to Oakland on Friday and be back in the Athletics' lineup Saturday. "I feel great; I don’t feel it pinch,’’ Reddick said. "I said when I was first injured that it wasn’t as bad as the last time I hurt my oblique, and it’s nice to know I was right.’’
Apr 7 - 8:43 PM

Athletics placed OF Josh Reddick on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 27, with a right oblique strain.

Reddick's slated to start playing in minor league games on Sunday. He hurt the oblique in early May and has been steadily progressing in his rehab. It looks like he should be ready to play when he's eligible to come off the disabled list on April 11.
Apr 4 - 7:50 PM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Saturday that Josh Reddick (oblique) is on track to rejoin the team when first eligible to come off the disabled list on April 11.

Reddick is scheduled to begin playing in minor league games on Sunday. He hasn't officially been placed on the disabled list yet, but will be soon retroactively. It looks as though he'll only miss the first five games of the season.
Apr 4 - 1:49 PM

Josh Reddick (oblique) will play five innings in a minor league game Sunday.

Reddick won't be ready for Opening Day but continues to move in the right direction as he recovers from a strained oblique. The A's figure to backdate a DL move with him, so Reddick could miss minimal time.
Mar 29 - 1:14 PM

Josh Reddick (oblique) is not expected to be ready for Opening Day.

Reddick has progressed in the right direction since tweaking his oblique three weeks ago, but he just doesn't have enough time to prepare for the opener. The outfielder is expected to return to game action over the weekend and isn't expected to miss more than a handful of regular season contests. Ben Zobrist will handle right field until Reddick is ready, with Eric Sogard filling in at second base. Tyler Ladendorf and Billy Burns now have a shot to crack the Opening Day roster.
Mar 27 - 2:13 PM

Josh Reddick (oblique) said Friday that he's "shooting for Saturday or Sunday to get back in lineup."

Reddick got through a couple rounds of batting practice Thursday with no issues and now feels ready to test things out in game action. The outfielder has been on the shelf for three weeks but has progressed in the right direction since then. He is not, however, expected to be ready in time for Opening Day.
