Josh Reddick went 3-for-5 with a run scored against the Royals on Tuesday.

Reddick had just three hits in his previous 22 at-bats before Tuesday's showing. The three-hit night raised the outfielder's average to .329 with 14 runs scored since returning from the disabled list in late July. He's hitting .259/.312/.424 on the year.

Josh Reddick went 2-for-3 with an RBI single in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Rays.

Reddick kept rolling on Tuesday. His RBI single off of Jeff Beliveau in the sixth inning was the final run of the game on either side. Reddick started off the 2014 season in awful fashion before being sidelined with a knee injury, but since coming back, he's been one of the hottest hitters in the game. In limited at bats in July, he hit .323/.333/.645, and he's been hitting better than that in August. For the season, he has a slash line of .258/.311/.436.

Reddick has come back from a strained right knee with a purpose, going 10-for-28 (.357) with four doubles, two homers, four RBI and seven runs scored in eight games. The strong stretch has his overall line up to .246/.305/.406.
Jul 30 - 12:02 AM

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

Reddick wound up missing over three weeks with a strained right knee. He went 9-for-21 with three home runs and eight RBI on his five-game minor league rehab assignment and will try to build off that offensive success in his return to the majors. The 27-year-old outfielder has a disappointing .229/.296/.358 batting line in 54 games this season for Oakland.
Jul 22 - 3:39 PM

Josh Reddick (knee) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Tuesday.

A's manager Bob Melvin said he spoke to Reddick Sunday morning and the outfielder said he was feeling "great." Reddick has seven hits -- including two home runs -- over 17 at-bats during his rehab assignment with High-A Stockton.
Jul 20 - 2:40 PM

Josh Reddick (knee) will remain on his rehab assignment until at least Sunday.

Reddick is making slow progress in his recovery from a right knee injury, and it's starting to look as though he may need more than the minimum stint on the disabled list that was originally forecast.
Jul 18 - 7:13 PM

Josh Reddick (knee) could begin a rehab assignment with High-A Stockton as soon as Friday.

He would remain on the assignment through the All-Star break, with an eye on returning for the start of the second half. Reddick has had multiple issues with his right knee and plans to wear a brace on the knee for the remainder of the season.
Jul 8 - 7:33 PM

Josh Reddick (knee) is hoping to begin a rehab assignment with High-A Stockton over the All-Star break.

Reddick aggravated a right knee injury a week ago, but he doesn't have any structural damage and it's sounding like he might not need much more than a minimum stay on the disabled list. He'll take batting practice Monday for the first time since landing on the DL. The outfielder is batting just .229/.296/.358 with four homers over 54 games for the A's this season.
Jul 7 - 6:51 PM

Josh Reddick (knee) has yet to resume any on-field activities.

Reddick was placed on the disabled list on Sunday after aggravating his right knee injury. The outfielder has mostly been limited to cardio work to this point and it's not clear when baseball activities will be incorporated.
Jul 4 - 3:10 PM

An MRI on Josh Reddick's right knee showed no structural damage.

Good news under the circumstances, as Reddick is currently on the DL for the second time in the past month due to an injury to the very same knee. He's expected to be shut down for a few days before being re-evaluated, so it's unlikely he'll be activated when he's first eligible.
Jun 30 - 5:18 PM

Athletics placed OF Josh Reddick on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee strain.

It's the same knee that sent him to the DL last month. Reddick is still awaiting results of an MRI, though he did report improvement with the knee on Sunday. He'll be shut down for at least five days even if the MRI comes back clean.
Jun 29 - 11:37 AM

Josh Reddick (knee) is expected to be placed on the disabled list.

Reddick left Saturday's game against the Marlins with a strain of his right knee, which is the same knee that sent him to the DL late last month. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Nate Freiman will be recalled from Triple-A Sacramento to take Reddick's spot on the roster.
