A's OF Josh Reddick voices frustration about sitting vs. lefties
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/3/15) Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick is enjoying a strong first half, batting .287 with a .348 on-base percentage, .469 slugging percentage and .817 OPS through 74 games.
He has certainly earned his spot in the lineup and is starting on most nights. However, there are still some times where he begins the game on the bench when the opposition is starting a left-handed pitcher.
Historically, Reddick is not a strong batter against left-handed pitchers. He has a career .220/.379/.662 slash line against lefties, as opposed to .262/.458/.780 against right-handers.
He is batting just .152 against left-handers in 2015 and despite the numbers not being in his favor, Reddick isn't happy when he sits against southpaws.
When talking with broadcaster Ray Fosse on the A’s pregame radio show on Thursday, Reddick voiced his displeasure about the situation and seemed to target general manager Billy Beane as the responsible party.
“I have no idea (who makes that decision). It doesn’t come from anywhere in this clubhouse," Reddick said, per CSNBayArea.com. "Everybody knows what situations our general manager puts up there. I couldn’t tell you what the difference is between me starting against one guy and not starting against another guy. … There’s probably so many numbers they could dig into their computers with and try to find one just to keep me out of the lineup.
“I know (manager Bob Melvin is) in there fighting for me. The other day I was supposed to play against (Jorge) De La Rosa, and Bob texts me at around 1:30 and told me he had been ‘trumped,’ was the word he used. I understood right away. I know it’s not Bob. He’s fighting for me to be in there every night. It still frustrates me beyond belief when I don’t play."
Beane declined to comment after CSN Bay Area sent him a text message. Although, Melvin spoke up and said the scenario did not play out as Reddick suggested.
“Sometimes I get ahead of myself because I want our guys always to know ahead of time so they can prepare,” Melvin said. “And I got ahead of myself on that one and I backtracked and I told him you’re not playing now. And maybe to an extent he thought I was so-called trumped.
“I want all my players to think I’m behind them,” Melvin said. “But we make organizational decisions organizationally. And not in just one instance, a lot... At the end of the day, it’s me that writes out the lineup card. No one tells me each and every day what the lineup card’s supposed to look like.”

With a day game Wednesday and Reddick feeling sore, manager Bob Melvin said he wanted to give Reddick some rest, reports The San Francisco Chronicle.

Athletics RF Josh Reddick hits first homer Monday since June 12
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/30/15) That trot around the bases must have felt good Monday night for Athletics right fielder Josh Reddick. It had been a while since he gave himself a chance to enjoy one.
Reddick had not homered since June 12. But he has been contributing consistently by hitting safely in 17 of his last 20 starts. He has six RBI in the last five games and has maintained a strong slash line that now sits at .287/.347/.474.
He scored twice and drove in two runs in the Monday defeat of Colorado.
|2014 summary: Josh Reddick started 2014 off on the wrong foot, and by the time he succumbed to a knee injury in early June, he was batting .214 with 10 extra-base hits. After sustaining another knee injury, Reddick finally returned for good in late July, and he came back an entirely different hitter. His approach was much more aggressive, and he rarely struck out. The payoff was a .299 batting average over his final 55 games, and with eight home runs and 13 doubles, his power was back.|
Playing time status: Reddick was scheduled to be the Athletics' everyday right fielder and still probably will be for much of the year, but an oblique injury this spring will likely sideline him for the first few weeks of the regular season. It's not exactly an aberration either. He has not played as many as 115 games in either of the last two seasons.
2015 outlook: Given how much time he has missed and how drastically his hitting approach changed last season, it's not easy to gauge what type of performance owners might get from Reddick in 2015. Reddick's final 2014 stats -- .264 with 12 HR, 54 RBI and 53 runs in 109 games -- would seem to be his floor, but his considerable upside makes him worth drafting in the later rounds in standard mixed Rotisserie leagues. He can go undrafted outside of deeper points leagues, but he's a top waiver option to keep an eye on.
