Josh Reddick went 2-for-4 and scored a pair of runs in a Game 3 win over the Dodgers on Friday.

He doubled to left field and scored in the Astros' four-run second inning outburst. In the fifth frame he singled to center then scored when pitcher Tony Watson made a throwing error on a comebacker off the bat of Evan Gattis. Reddick went 1-for-25 with a single in the ALCS against the Yankees but has come alive in the World Series. He is now 4-for-11 through three games against the Dodgers.

Josh Reddick reached three times against Chris Sale in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

Not bad for a guy who almost certainly would have been on the bench if Jake Marisnick hadn't gone down last month. The Astros still could have started Cameron Maybin over him against the tough lefty today, but they're glad they didn't.

Josh Reddick (back) will start in right field and bat sixth in Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday against the Red Sox.

Reddick missed the final week of the regular season with a back injury, but he has been cleared to return to action for the ALDS opener versus Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale. The full lineup for Houston: George Springer CF, Alex Bregman 3B, Jose Altuve 2B, Carlos Correa SS, Evan Gattis DH, Josh Reddick RF, Yulieski Gurriel 1B, Marwin Gonzalez LF, Brian McCann C. Justin Verlander is on the mound.

Josh Reddick (back) says he's "ready to go" for Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday against the Red Sox.

Reddick didn't play in the final week of the regular season because of a back injury, but it sounds like the rest did him well. He might come off the bench in Game 1 with the Red Sox throwing left-hander Chris Sale, but there's also a chance he could start in right field.

Josh Reddick (back) is expected to be ready for the American League Division Series.

Reddick missed the final week of the regular season due to a back injury, but he participated in a team workout Tuesday and will do the same on Wednesday. The left-handed-hitting outfielder probably won't start ALDS Game 1 against Red Sox lefty Chris Sale, allowing him a little extra time to heal. But he should be in there for Game 2.

The Astros hope Josh Reddick (back) will be able to go through the team's workout on Tuesday.

Reddick hasn't played in a week due to a back injury, and it sounds like it's not a given that he'll be healthy enough for Game 1 of the ALDS against the Red Sox on Thursday. His first season in Houston has been a good one, as he batted .314/.363/.484 with 13 home runs.

Josh Reddick (back) remains out of the Astros' starting lineup on Saturday.

Reddick continues to be available as a bat off of the bench, but probably wasn't going to start anyways against left-hander Drew Pomeranz. There's a chance he'll be back in there for Sunday's regular season finale.

Josh Reddick (back) returned to the Astros' lineup on Sunday.

Josh Reddick was lifted from Friday's game against the Angels with back soreness.
