Date:

Josh Reddick is not in the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

He's on the bench with the Orioles throwing lefty Wei-Yin Chen. Sam Fuld is in right field in Reddick's place.
Aug 16 - 11:11 AM

Josh Reddick went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Saturday's loss to the Orioles.

Reddick jumped on a Miguel Gonzalez offering for a solo homer in the third inning. The injury-prone outfielder is hitting .282/.332/.460 with 14 dingers and 61 RBI in 107 games. He won't be matching the career-best 32 homers he launched in 2012, but there's still an outside chance he cracks the 20-tater mark.
Aug 15 - 9:47 PM

Josh Reddick (back) went 2-for-4 with a double in Thursday afternoon's loss to the Blue Jays.

Reddick doubled off of Roberto Osuna with two outs in the ninth inning and his team trailing 4-2. The A's would be unable to bring Reddick home, falling by that final score. This was the first full game he's played in this week, as he's dealing with lower back stiffness. Injuries have always been the outfielder's bugaboo, but his 2015 campaign has been largely a healthy one and he's hitting a solid .279/.329/.449 with 13 home runs and 60 RBI. He's even felt frisky enough to steal five bases.
Aug 13 - 3:12 PM

Josh Reddick (back) drew a walk as a pinch-hitter on Wednesday against the Orioles.

Reddick was held out of the Athletics' starting lineup for a third straight game due to lingering lower back stiffness, but he's clearly making some progress. The 28-year-old outfielder should be well enough to start Thursday's series opener against the Astros.
Aug 6 - 8:43 AM

Josh Reddick (back) remained out of the Athletics' lineup Wednesday.

Reddick was supposed to play Tuesday but was a late scratch and now he's missed three straight starts with lower back stiffness. He'll try to be ready for Thursday's tilt versus the Astros. Sam Fuld is in right field Wednesday.
Aug 5 - 1:29 PM

Josh Reddick (back) was a late scratch from the Athletics' lineup Tuesday.

Reddick had been slated to return to action after sitting out Monday with lower back soreness, but apparently he's not quite ready yet. Mark Canha replaced him in right field.
Aug 4 - 8:08 PM

Josh Reddick (back) is back in the Athletics' lineup Tuesday.

Reddick sat out Monday's game with lower back soreness, but he's ready to go now. The veteran outfielder sports a .283/.334/.459 batting line with 13 homers this season.
Aug 4 - 6:15 PM

Josh Reddick (back) is unlikely to play on Monday.

Reddick tweaked his back while making a running catch during Sunday's game against the Indians. He indicated that his back was feeling better after icing it though, and doesn't believe it will be an issue moving forward. Expect him to return to the A's lineup on Tuesday.

Josh Reddick was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Indians due to tightness in his lower back.

Prior to his departure, Reddick had been 0-for-2 against Trevor Bauer. It doesn't sound as though the injury is serious, so expect him to return to the lineup in a day or two.
Aug 2 - 6:07 PM

Josh Reddick went 3-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Tuesday's shutout win against the Dodgers.

Reddick provided insurance, pushing the Athletics' lead to 2-0 after belting a solo home run to right-center in the seventh inning off of Brett Anderson. He hadn't done much since returning from the All-Star break, but still owns a productive .287/.341/.467 batting line with 13 home runs and 57 RBI.
Jul 29 - 12:39 AM

Josh Reddick "isn't a current consideration" for the Mets, per Mike Puma of the New York Post.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported earlier this month that the Angels asked the A's about Reddick and were given a flat "no" -- so maybe he's not available at all. Reddick has a cool .282/.336/.452 batting line with 12 home runs and 56 RBI in 92 games this season and the 28-year-old outfielder carries one more year of arbitration eligibility in 2016.
Jul 27 - 1:52 PM

Josh Reddick went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

The double was Reddick's 14th of the season. He's hitting a cool .282/.336/.452 with 12 homers and 56 RBI. The injury-prone outfielder has already amassed almost as many at-bats this season (330) as he did in the entirety of 2014 (363). As long as he's healthy, he's a productive player.
Jul 26 - 7:40 PM

Josh Reddick is not in the Athletics starting lineup on Saturday.

He'll grab a seat on the pine against tough opposing southpaw Madison Bumgarner. Jake Smolinski will draw the start in right field and bat fifth for the Athletics.
Jul 25 - 12:40 PM

Josh Reddick is not in the Athletics' lineup Wednesday.

With lefty Felix Doubront on the hill for the Blue Jays, Reddick will have a seat. Jake Smolinski will start in right field for the A's in Reddick's place.
