Josh Reddick clobbered his fifth home run of the season as the Astros salvaged the night cap of Sunday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

Reddick went back-to-back with teammate George Springer to lead off the game. He finished the night 1-for-4. He has settled in nicely with the Astros, slashing .297/.344/.483 with five homers and 17 RBI.
May 14 - 11:45 PM

Josh Reddick went 2-for-4 and hit his fourth homer Tuesday against the Braves.

Reddick is hitting .288 with a .798 OPS. He makes for a solid play in mixed leagues for as long as he keeps batting second for the Astros.
May 9 - 11:18 PM

Josh Reddick singled and walked three times as Houston's leadoff man Thursday.

With George Springer absent, manager A.J. Hinch simply moved everyone up a spot, which meant Reddick hit first, Jose Altuve batted second and Carlos Correa was in the third spot. Reddick hasn't showed a lot of power yet, but he's hitting .287 with a .333 OBP.
May 4 - 6:12 PM

Josh Reddick drove in three runs in Tuesday's win over the Indians.

Reddick put the Astros ahead what turned out to be for good in the fifth inning with a two-RBI single and also plated another run with a single in the ninth. He also robbed Jason Kipnis of a home run by scaling the wall in center field in the fifth. Reddick is hitting .293/.306/.431 this month.
Apr 25 - 9:14 PM

Josh Reddick is getting the day off Thursday.

George Springer is in right field and batting leadoff, with Carlos Beltran in left field and batting second. Jake Marisnick will handle center and hit ninth. Reddick doubled, tripled, and homered on Wednesday night against the Angels, pushing his season slash line to .341/.362/.523.
Apr 20 - 11:17 AM

Josh Reddick homered, tripled and doubled against the Angels on Wednesday.

It was his first homer, first triple and third double. Reddick is thriving as the Astros' No. 2 hitter, batting .341 to date. He has additional value in mixed leagues for however long he lasts in that spot. Ideally, though, Alex Bregman would take it back.
Apr 19 - 11:58 PM

Josh Reddick went 3-for-4 with a double against the Angels on Monday.

Reddick hit second again tonight, just as he's done in each of his last four starts. That was supposed to be Alex Bregman's spot, but it looks like he'll just be there against left-handers going forward. Reddick is hitting .324 in 37 at-bats. Bergman is at .267, but his .389 OBP tops Reddick's .350 mark.
Apr 17 - 11:41 PM

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

He'll take a seat against opposing left-hander Sean Manaea in favor of Jake Marisnick. Reddick is off to a bit of a slow start at the dish with his new club, slashing .281/.314/.313 with no homers and two RBI in 32 at-bats.
Apr 15 - 1:16 PM

Josh Reddick went 2-for-3 with a walk and three runs scored as the Astros' No. 2 hitter on Wednesday.

Manager A.J. Hinch mixed it up Tuesday to try to turn around the offense -- Reddick in particular -- and it worked out, as Reddick had a great game sandwiched in between George Springer and Jose Altuve. The ideal for the Astros is still Alex Bregman in the two-hole, but Reddick might stay there against right-handers if the Astros keep scoring runs.
Apr 13 - 1:43 AM

Josh Reddick went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts as the Astros fell to the Mariners on Monday.

Reddick is now batting .227 with a .534 OPS through eight games this season after struggling mightily with the Dodgers in the second half of 2016. The veteran outfielder scored a four-year, $52 million free agent contract from the Astros over the offseason, but there is very little fantasy upside here.
Apr 10 - 8:16 PM

Josh Reddick is absent from the Astros starting lineup for Saturday's tilt against the Royals.

Once again with a left-hander on the mound, Reddick takes a seat in favor of Jake Marisnick. He's off to a slow start with his new club, hitting .250 (4-for-12) with no homers and no RBI in the early going.
Apr 8 - 3:48 PM

Josh Reddick is not in the Astros' lineup for Thursday's game against the Mariners.

Reddick doesn't hit lefties well, so he'll take a seat against Ariel Miranda on Thursday night. George Springer will cover right field with Jake Marisnick in center. Through his first 12 at-bats, Reddick is hitting .250 with no homers or RBI.
Apr 6 - 4:46 PM

While the rest of the Astros were 15-for-33, Josh Reddick went 0-for-4 from the two hole against the Twins on Wednesday.

Reddick has had a very quiet spring, hitting .205 with no extra-base hits and just one RBI in 39 at-bats. We wouldn't typically show much concern about a veteran hitter's spring showing, but Reddick really struggled coming down the stretch last year, too. The Astros made a hefty commitment to him, so he's not going anywhere. However, he'll likely open the season batting low in the order and perhaps sitting against a lot of lefties.
Mar 22 - 4:33 PM

Josh Reddick is batting out of the second spot in the Astros' lineup for Saturday's Grapefruit League showdown against the Mets.

Most of the club's regulars are in the lineup on Saturday, so it'll be interesting to see if this is an alignment that manager A.J. Hinch will consider during the regular season. It would be a big boost to his fantasy value if he's sandwiched between George Springer and Jose Altuve.
