While the rest of the Astros were 15-for-33, Josh Reddick went 0-for-4 from the two hole against the Twins on Wednesday.
Reddick has had a very quiet spring, hitting .205 with no extra-base hits and just one RBI in 39 at-bats. We wouldn't typically show much concern about a veteran hitter's spring showing, but Reddick really struggled coming down the stretch last year, too. The Astros made a hefty commitment to him, so he's not going anywhere. However, he'll likely open the season batting low in the order and perhaps sitting against a lot of lefties. Mar 22 - 4:33 PM

Josh Reddick is batting out of the second spot in the Astros' lineup for Saturday's Grapefruit League showdown against the Mets.

Most of the club's regulars are in the lineup on Saturday, so it'll be interesting to see if this is an alignment that manager A.J. Hinch will consider during the regular season. It would be a big boost to his fantasy value if he's sandwiched between George Springer and Jose Altuve.
Mar 4 - 7:53 AM

Astros signed OF Josh Reddick to a four-year, $52 million contract.

The deal was reported last week and it's now official. With Reddick and Brian McCann, the Astros have now added a pair of left-handed bats in the past week. Reddick has mostly played right field in his career and won a Gold Glove at the position in 2012, but it's unclear how things will play out in Houston. Astros manager A.J. Hinch has some options with his outfield and GM Jeff Luhnow might still have more additions to come this winter. Reddick, who turns 30 in February, batted .281/.345/.405 with 10 homers and 37 RBI over 115 games this past season between the Athletics and Dodgers.

Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reports that the Astros have agreed to a deal with free agent outfielder Josh Reddick, pending a physical.

The Astros are having themselves quite the afternoon. Per Passan, the deal is worth $52 million over four years. Reddick, who turns 30 in February, batted .281/.345/.405 with 10 homers and 37 RBI over 115 games this past season between the Athletics and Dodgers. He'll slot into a corner outfield spot with his new club. Reddick was not eligible for a qualifying offer since he was traded midseason, so the Astros won't have to give up a draft pick in order to sign him. With the additions of Reddick and Brian McCann, the Astros' lineup suddenly looks more potent from the left side.

MLB Network's Jon Morosi reports that the Blue Jays are showing interest in Josh Reddick.

The Jays have interest in retaining Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista, but they're preparing backup plans in case it doesn't happen. Reddick, who will turn 30 in February, batted .281/.345/.405 with 10 home runs over 439 plate appearances for the A's and Dodgers this past season. He would help to balance out a lineup that is currently right-handed heavy.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Orioles are pursuing free agent outfielder Josh Reddick.

We've also seen the Orioles connected to Ian Desmond as a possible addition as a corner outfielder. The difference with Reddick is that he wasn't eligible to receive a qualifying offer and thus, won't cost a draft pick. Reddick, who turns 30 in February, batted .281/.345/.405 with 10 homers and 37 RBI over 115 games this season between the A's and Dodgers.

Josh Reddick is starting in right field and batting fifth in Sunday's NLDS Game 2 versus the Nationals.

The Dodgers are sticking with the same lineup that they had in Game 1 (aside from starter Rich Hill) and the same one they were going to use before Saturday's game was postponed due to rain. It looks like this: Chase Utley 2B, Corey Seager SS, Justin Turner 3B, Adrian Gonzalez 1B, Reddick RF, Joc Pederson CF, Yasmani Grandal C, Andrew Toles LF, Hill P.

Josh Reddick went 3-for-4 with a grand slam, drove in five runs and scored three times to lead the Dodgers over the Rockies on Saturday.

He added a walk as well. The Dodgers were already ahead 10-0 when he hit the grand slam but they all count the same in fantasyland. He has been playing nearly every day of late and has a .281/.346/.407 slash line combined between his games with Oakland and Los Angeles this season. The home run was his 10th of the season to go with 37 RBI and 53 runs scored in 388 at-bats.

Josh Reddick went 3-for-4 and hit a solo home run in a win over the Padres on Saturday.

It was his first home run and second RBI since coming over to the Dodgers from the Athletics at the trade deadline more than a month ago. He has played very poorly of late. Overall he is batting .269/.337/.391 with nine homers, 30 RBI and 45 runs scored. His playing time may be sporadic over the final month due to a crowded Dodger outfield.

Josh Reddick went 1-for-5 and got picked off first base following his lone hit Friday against the Cubs.

Reddick's first stint in the NL couldn't be going any worse. He's played in 21 games for the Dodgers without driving in a run in any of them. If he can't turn it around soon, he could start logging bench time next month, assuming that Yasiel Puig is recalled.

Josh Reddick went 0-for-3 (finger) in his return to the Dodgers' lineup on Wednesday.

Reddick had been held out two games after jamming his right middle finger while having room service delivered at the Dodgers' team hotel in Cincinnati on Sunday. The 29-year-old outfielder is batting just .143/.211/.157 in 76 plate appearances so far with Los Angeles.

Josh Reddick (finger) drew a walk and scored a run as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday.

Reddick was held out of the Dodgers' starting lineup for the second straight game after jamming his right middle finger while having room service delivered in Cincinnati on Sunday. Including that walk on Tuesday night against the Giants, the 29-year-old outfielder is batting .149/.219/.164 in 73 plate appearances with Los Angeles. Maybe he can finish strong.

Josh Reddick (finger) remains out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Tuesday night.

Reddick jammed his right middle finger on Sunday night while having room service delivered and sat out Monday afternoon's series finale in Cincinnati. He was able to take batting practice on Tuesday evening, which is obviously a strong indication that the injury is not serious. Rob Segedin will start in right field and bat seventh Tuesday versus Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner.

Josh Reddick said after Monday's game that he injured his right middle finger Sunday night when he got his hand caught in a door while ordering room service.

Because his tenure with the Dodgers hasn't been rough enough already. Reddick was scratched from Monday's lineup as a result and called the injury "rock bottom." The 29-year-old is batting just .152/.211/.167 through 71 plate appearances since being acquired by the Dodgers. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return.

Josh Reddick was scratched from the Dodgers' starting lineup on Monday due to a jammed middle finger on his right hand.

Andrew Toles will start in his place against Reds right-hander Homer Bailey. Reddick has been a disappointment so far with Los Angeles, slashing .152/.211/.167 with zero homers and zero RBI in 71 plate appearances. He said he's unsure how or when he suffered the jammed finger.
