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.
Jun 29 - 9:50 AM

Reddick left Saturday's game against the Marlins with a right knee strain.

Reddick was 1-for-1 prior to exiting. He hyperextended this same knee in late May and there is a good chance he will have to be placed back on the 15-day disabled list.
Jun 28 - 6:01 PM

Josh Reddick went 3-for-5 with a triple and two RBI in Friday's 9-5 win against the Marlins.

This was Reddick's best game since being activated from the DL on June 24th. He had been out since late May with a hyperextended knee. While the three hits are nice, that he was willing to stretch for the triple is perhaps the surest sign that he's feeling good. Reddick was slugging below .400 prior to the injury, but it's possible that the DL stint allowed him some much needed time to clear his head. He's an interesting buy-low candidate.
Jun 27 - 10:50 PM

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

Reddick, out since late May with a hyperextended right knee, went 7-for-16 (.438) with three doubles over four rehab games with Triple-A Sacramento. He'll return to a .214/.279/.339 batting line to go along with four home runs and 22 RBI over 50 games.
Jun 24 - 1:03 PM

Josh Reddick (knee) is hoping to be activated from the disabled list on June 24.

Reddick will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday and is hoping he'll need just under a week's worth of at-bats to get back up to speed. The outfielder has been sidelined since late May with a hyperextended right knee.
Jun 16 - 7:18 PM

Josh Reddick (knee) is on track to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday.

Reddick will run the bases on Sunday and Monday before officially being cleared to begin the rehab assignment. He's been out since late May with a hyperextended right knee but is tracking toward a return later this week.
