Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Athletics | Josh Reddick sent to DL

The Oakland Athletics placed OF Josh Reddick (wrist) on the disabled list Wednesday, May 8, and called up 1B Daric Barton from Class AAA Sacramento.

Fantasy Tip: Stash Reddick wherever possible, but recognize that his power might take awhile to come back even after he returns. With Chris B. Young (quadriceps) also sidelined, Michael Taylor should continue seeing playing time, sustaining his speculative deep-mixed value. Barton will probably be used in the mishmash of DH options and warrants a flyer strictly in AL-only games; his worth depends heavily on playing time, not necessarily stick skills.
