Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (knee) has no structural damage in his injured need, and the team will likely take the same approach with him as the last time he was on the disabled list. Reddick won't do any activities for five or six days.
Fantasy Tip: The good news here is that Reddick won't require surgery, but he'll likely be out another three weeks. Craig Gentry will continue to have value in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (knee) doesn't have any structural damage in his right knee, an MRI exam confirmed, but he won't do any baseball activities during the team's road trip.

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (knee) won't be allowed to perform any baseball activities for 10 days in order to rest his hyperextended right knee.
Fantasy Tip: Expect him to be out more than the minimum 15 days and the A's to use a mix that includes Craig Gentry (speed speculation) and Kyle Blanks (power) to fill the gap.

The Oakland Athletics placed OF Josh Reddick (knee) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 3, and activated RP Ryan Cook (forearm) from the 15-day DL in a corresponding move. Reddick's DL stint is retroactive to June 1.
Fantasy Tip: Reddick's absence means Craig Gentry should see plenty of time in right field, and he's a notable addition in AL-only leagues to shore up your outfield depth. Cook returns to a bullpen that has seen Sean Doolittle take a hold on the closer duties. For now, Cook should only be owned in AL-only leagues as a long-term option for save chances down the road.

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (undisclosed) left the game early after making a catch and colliding with the outfield wall Wednesday, May 7.
Fantasy Tip: The A's should be expected to update Crisp's condition following their game Wednesday. Be prepared for it to be something that knocks him out for a good chunk of time. Craig Gentry's stock would rise in AL-only and some select deep mixed leagues.

Updating a previous report, Oakland Athletics OF Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) suffered a left hamstring injury during the game Thursday, April 24, and likely will miss a few games.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation in case Cespedes needs to go on the disabled list because of the injury. OF Craig Gentry could see more playing time if Cespedes misses an extended period of time and could be a short-term option in AL-only and deeper leagues.
