Josh Reddick was scratched from the A's lineup on Saturday due to back soreness.
It sounds like a day-to-day type of thing. Reddick has posted a cool .295/.374/.433 batting line in 61 games this season and will be a big trade chip for the Athletics ahead of the August 1 non-waiver deadline. There is known to be interest from the Cubs. Jul 23 - 7:19 PM

According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Cubs are "looking at" A's outfielder Josh Reddick.

Morosi notes that Cubs president Theo Epstein drafted Reddick in Boston back in 2006. It's been a frustrating 2016 for the 29-year-old outfielder, who missed part of May and most of June with a fractured thumb, but he has been a productive hitter when healthy for going on five years and he's only owed about $3 million on his current contract. Reddick can become a free agent this winter.

Josh Reddick hit a walk-off, opposite-field RBI single to beat the Astros in the 10th inning of Tuesday night's 4-3 victory.

Reddick didn't exactly scald the walk-off winner against Tony Sipp, but as the old adage goes, he just needed to hit it where they ain't. In this case, the Astros employed the shift when Reddick stepped to the plate. He proceeded to hit an opposite-field grounder that would have likely been gobbled up by Carlos Correa had the shift not been on. As is, the ball just squeaked through to score Marcus Semien. For the season as a whole, Reddick is slashing .298/.378/.439 with six homers and 23 RBI over 205 at-bats.

Josh Reddick reached four times, homered and scored four runs Friday in Oakland's 8-7 edging of Toronto.

Reddick usually comes to the plate with two out and none on, so he's not often in a position to score (or drive in) runs. He had some fun tonight, though. It's the second time in his career that he's scored four runs in a game. He's just the second Athletic in the last two seasons to score four times; Coco Crisp did it on June 25.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Royals have expressed interest in acquiring Josh Reddick.

The Royals have dealt with a rash of injuries in the outfield this season and could certainly use another left-handed bat with power that could slot in the middle of the lineup. The Giants, Cubs, Dodgers, Blue Jays and Nationals have also expressed interest in the veteran outfielder.

Josh Reddick is not in the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

He's on the bench with the Astros throwing lefty Dallas Keuchel. Stephen Vogt is also sitting out, as the A's have Jake Smolinski in right field and Matt McBride at catcher.

The Athletics have not resumed contract talks with Josh Reddick.

The A's reportedly offered Reddick a three-year, $36 million contract last offseason. Reddick quickly countered with a proposed four-year, $56 million extension, which is believed to be at least $5-10 million below his market value. It's been crickets since then and with the trade deadline looming, there's a good chance Reddick will be wearing a new uniform in a few weeks. The Blue Jays, Cubs, Dodgers, Giants, Nationals and Royals are a few of the many teams that have shown interest. Reddick got off to a hot start this year but has hit just .209 in 11 games since returning from a broken thumb.
Jul 9 - 11:09 PM

SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports the Royals have shown interest in Josh Reddick.

They've also checked in on his teammate Rich Hill. The A's aren't going anywhere and there's a good chance Reddick will be leaving in free agency this offseason. Meanwhile the Royals are down an outfielder with Lorenzo Cain (hamstring strain) on the disabled list. Reddick has boosted his trade value by hitting .308 through 169 at-bats this year. Whether it's Kansas City or somewhere else, Reddick should be playing in a new city by July 31.

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

He'll rejoin the A's lineup immediately, batting third and playing right field against Albert Suarez and the Giants. Reddick had been sidelined since May 19 due to a fractured left thumb. He returns to a .322/.394/.466 line with five homers and 18 RBI in 44 games.
Jun 28 - 6:35 PM

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. He could become trade bait for Oakland next month if the two sides don't make progress on a contract extension. Joe Stiglich of hears that Reddick is on a preliminary list of players under consideration by the Giants.
Jun 27 - 8:52 PM

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.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said over the weekend that club projects him to return for the first game of the Giants series on June 27. Reddick has been sidelined for over a month with a fractured left thumb.
