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.
