The latest Josh Reddick MLB and fantasy baseball news

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (wrist) will join the team and take batting practice Friday, May 24. Reddick will be sent out for a rehab assignment after that if he doesn't have any setbacks.
Fantasy Tip: This is very positive news for Reddick, who was considering the possibility that he might need to have surgery on his wrist. When he eventually returns, it'll mean even less playing time for Chris B. Young and Seth Smith.

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (wrist) hit balls off a tee Saturday, May 18, using both a fungo bat and a baseball bat. Manager Bob Melvin appeared optimistic that he would not require surgery but he is unlikely to be activated from the disabled list when he is eligible to return Wednesday, May 22. Reddick will not accompany the club at the beginning of their road trip and needs to take batting practice and participate in a minor league rehab assignment before he is activated.

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (wrist) is likely to wait another week before picking up a bat. If he can't swing soon, he might decide to undergo surgery.
Fantasy Tip: Reddick had similar surgery on his other wrist a few years ago and missed two months after that. He's remaining optimistic right now, but if he needs surgery, Chris B. Young and Seth Smith will benefit the most in his absence.

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.

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (wrist) reportedly is headed to the 15-day disabled list with a wrist injury. The move has not been made yet, but if Reddick goes to the DL the Athletics may call up 1B Daric Barton from Triple-A Sacramento.
Fantasy Tip: Well, this would explain Reddick's power outage at the plate. If his wrist has bothered him for longer than just a few days, it would explain his sub-.200 batting average. Reddick's job could be in jeopardy if he has to be on the DL for a while; the Athletics have a lot of outfielders.
Tue, 07 May 2013 20:28:08 -0700
Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (wrist) said MRI results on his wrist showed inflammation. Reddick required surgery for a tendon problem in his other wrist, and hopes he won't require surgery for this injury.
Tue, 07 May 2013 14:11:28 -0700
Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin said OF Josh Reddick (wrist) is out of the lineup with a wrist injury Tuesday, May 7. He will receive an injection Tuesday and is expected to miss a couple of days as a result.
Fantasy Tip: It's possible that this wrist injury is related to the wrist ailment he suffered in April. He will swing a bat later this week and attempt to play this weekend, but you have to wonder if his wrist has been responsible for his slow start this year.
Tue, 07 May 2013 13:12:39 -0700
Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick is resting Tuesday, May 7, and hitting coach Chili Davis is confident that Reddick will get going at the plate soon.
Fantasy Tip: Reddick is slumping to start the year, and it appears as though he's not being as aggressive as he was with the stick last season. If you own him now, it's probably best to pick and choose the days (based on matchups) when you start him.
Fri, 26 Apr 2013 16:44:28 -0700
Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick is hitting third Friday, April 26. Reddick is 6-for-16 over his last five games.
Mon, 15 Apr 2013 16:23:17 -0700
Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick is taking the day off against a left-handed pitcher Monday, April 15.
Fantasy Tip: Reddick is fresh off a wrist injury, so Bob Melvin probably wants to give him a breather, too. He hasn't been swinging the stick well since his return. Expect him to be back in the lineup tomorrow.
