Josh Reddick may be showing more patience
by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com (5/7/2013) Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick has struggled to collect many hits over the past two weeks but is finding other ways to reach base during the month of May. Through his first five games, Reddick has walked five times, highlighted by a three-walk outing against the Angels last Wednesday.
The improved plate discipline has nearly matched his total from the month of April (nine) and resulted in a sterling .444 on-base percentage. However, Reddick has gone just 4 for 31 over his past 12 games as his overall batting average lags at .152.
"Do I feel the effects? Sure I do," he told the San Jose Mercury News. "It would be hard not to. There are times I'm hitting the ball hard and guys are making big plays against me, like (Angels' second baseman Howie) Kendrick the other night. I'm tired of it. But my teammates are good about it. They keep letting me know that I'm going to come around, that I'm due."
Reddick started to show signs of life when he hit .375 (6 for 16) over a five-game span from April 21-25, but he heads into Friday's game against the Yankees mired in a 1-for-16 slump in his last six games.
"Josh has been great off the field," manager Bob Melvin said. "It's just been difficult on the field for him to find his rhythm. He's handled it well, and we know it's going to come."

Reddick started the year with just five hits over his first 45 at-bats, but has six hits over his last 16 plate appearances (.375), including three doubles and five RBI.
"This is a spot he's comfortable hitting in," Melvin told MLB.com. "Based on the fact he's swinging well again, it's the right day to put him back in there. We'll see where it goes from here."
A's manager trying to keep Josh Reddick rolling
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (4/24/2013) Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick was noticeably absent from Wednesday's starting lineup against the Red Sox despite being on a hot streak. Manager Bob Melvin explained the move that by resting Reddick, it could help him remain on a roll at the plate.
Reddick is batting .417 (5 for 12) with two doubles and five RBI in his last three games after opening the year with a .102 average and seven RBI in his first 14 games.
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer (4/23/2013) A Twitter follower recently asked me if Josh Reddick's 2012 was a fluke on the level of Adam Lind's 2009, but I wouldn't put it in the same category. Lind fooled us for a full season. Reddick already came back down to earth in the second half last year, batting .215 with a .647 OPS.
Coming into this year, I saw last year's .242 batting average, 32 home runs and .768 OPS -- modest numbers to begin with -- as probably the high point of what Reddick could achieve. Naturally, he's not nearly as bad as he's looked this season, but he's not beyond dropping in shallower leagues if a Lucas Duda-type is calling to you off the waiver wire.
Josh Reddick dropped down in order

Reddick, who has just two hits over his last last 30 at-bats, said he has no issues with being moved down in the order.
“I’m not producing, so there’s no reason to be in the three-hole right now. No need to be a momentum killer,” he said.

Other possible reasons for Reddick sitting are that he's recently returned from a wrist injury and may be trying to do too much at the plate since his return.
Reddick, batting .108 on the year after 37 at-bats, has gone just 1 for 21 (.048) over his past five games.
