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.

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.
