Josh Reddick is not in the Athletics' lineup Tuesday.
Reddick is a little banged up, and with Rockies throwing lefty Jorge De La Rosa, it was a good opportunity to sit him. He'll be available off the bench. Sam Fuld is in right field in his place. Jun 30 - 7:20 PM

Josh Reddick went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run as the Athletics easily defeated the Rockies on Monday.

Reddick gave the Athletics a quick 2-0 lead when he popped a two-run home run to right-center off of David Hale in the first inning. It's his 11th of the year but his first in two and a half weeks. Reddick has also knocked in 48 runs while hitting .287/.347/.474.

Josh Reddick went 2-for-3 with three runs batted in as the Athletics defeated the Rangers on Thursday.

Reddick brought in the game-tying run in the sixth inning with a sacrifice fly to make it 3-3, then added insurance with a two-run single in the seventh to make it 6-3. He entered the day batting a meager .162 (6-for-37) in his last eight games, but he still has a productive .292/.353/.478 batting line with 10 home runs and 45 RBI.

Josh Reddick is not in Saturday's lineup against the Angels.

It makes sense to give Reddick the night off as he's just 3-for-21 in his career against C.J. Wilson. Saturday will be his eighth absence of the season. Sam Fuld will draw the start in right field.
Jun 13 - 6:26 PM

Josh Reddick belted a three-run homer in the eighth inning on Thursday, helping to power the Rangers to a 7-0 victory over the Athletics.

The game remained a 1-0 pitcher's duel until the bottom of the eighth inning, where Mark Canha belted a two-run shot and Reddick swatted his three-run homer to put the game out of reach. Reddick finished the day 2-for-4 and also drew a walk. He has had quite the resurgence this season, slashing an impressive .312/.385/.525 with nine long balls and 36 RBI.
Jun 11 - 6:21 PM

Josh Reddick's fielder's choice grounder to second scored the walk-off run in Wednesday's 5-4 win against the Rangers.

It wasn't pretty, but it scored Sam Fuld to break the deadlock. Reddick finished 2-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI. The streaking outfielder is slashing .308/.380/.510. His career high for OPS in a season with more than 300 at-bats is .768. That's also the only season he had over 400 at-bats, as his body has betrayed him often. If Reddick can stay healthy -- a huge if -- a breakout season is very possibly in store.
Jun 11 - 1:25 AM

Josh Reddick went 2-for-4 with a triple and a run scored in Monday's win over the Tigers.

The outfielder was part of the Athletics' decisive four-run sixth inning, notching a three-bagger as the second hitter of the frame before scoring their second run. Reddick got a late start to the season due to an oblique injury but has been raking since his return, sporting a .314/.382/.536 batting line.
May 25 - 7:00 PM

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.
Apr 29 - 12:22 AM

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.
