Updating a previous report, Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (oblique) thinks he'll be out four or five days due to a right oblique strain that he suffered leaping to try and catch a ball at the wall during defensive drills. Reddick said his Grade 2 left oblique strain in 2009 was much more severe. Reddick said he's not bothered too much with this latest injury. He is optimistic he'll return in limited time, and he plans to undergo an MRI exam in a few days.
Fantasy Tip: Reddick's injury doesn't appear very serious, but if he's not careful, oblique injuries can linger or become worse. He has enough time to be ready for the start of the regular season if he manages the injury correctly. Reddick is worth a late-round flier in deep mixed leagues because of his power-speed combo, but just don't expect a return to the 30-homer mark he showed in 2012.

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (oblique) was scratched from the game Friday, March 6, with a right oblique strain. It's unknown how much time Reddick will miss. OF Mark Canha is likely to see more playing time if Reddick misses much time.
Fantasy Tip: Believe it or not, Reddick is two years removed from a 32-homer season. However, injuries have slowed him down the last two years, although he still does have valuable pop that might be worth taking a chance on late in deep mixed leagues. Oblique injuries are tricky, though, so keep an eye on his progress. Canha should be on your radar in AL-only formats for stolen bases if Reddick misses significant time.
