Athletics manager Bob Melvin said that Josh Reddick (thumb) is track to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

Reddick, out since May 19 with fractured left thumb, is 3-for-20 (.150) with a homer over five rehab games with Triple-A Nashville. Assuming all goes well Monday, he's expected to return to the A's for Tuesday's game against the Giants. Reddick was batting .322/.394/.466 with five homers and 18 RBI in 44 games prior to the injury.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Athletics and Josh Reddick plan to revisit contract extension talks before the trade deadline.

The two sides were unable to work something out previously, as the A's wanted to give Reddick a three-year deal and the outfielder was seeking four years. If a long-term deal isn't worked out, there's a good chance the A's will trade Reddick next month. Rosenthal does note that the club is prepared to hang on to Reddick and give him a qualifying offer over the winter if it comes to that. Reddick is making $6.575 million this season in his final year before free agency.
