Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick is batting second in the lineup for the first time this year Monday, Aug. 11. Manager Bob Melvin noted that Reddick is seeing the ball well at the plate and using all fields. He's batting .328 since coming off the disabled list July 22. C Stephen Vogt, who is 5-for-14 with two homers after going through an 0-for-21 slump, is hitting sixth. 1B Brandon Moss remains at cleanup despite being in a 2-for-28 funk lately.
Fantasy Tip: Reddick is red hot since the end of July. He's been a popular waiver-wire addition in recent weeks because of it. If he's still out there in your league, don't wait any longer.
