by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Josh Reddick comes up big Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2014) Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick came through in a big way Saturday against the Astros. 

Reddick struck in the ninth inning. With two men on base, Reddick tied the game with a two-run double. He then managed to score the game-winning run on a single. Reddick also singled earlier in the contest. He finished 2 for 4, with one run scored and two RBI.


Josh Reddick doesn't like taking strikes


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(8/27/2014) Since returning from a knee injury in late July, Josh Reddick has rediscovered the power that had been sorely lacking for him earlier in the season. That has helped to catapult him among the top 25 outfielders in Fantasy since then, but his power resurgence is only part of the story.

Reddick has a history of extreme flyball hitting, and while that gives him the potential to hit 30-plus homers like he did in 2012, it also has a little something to do with his career .242 batting average. In 30 games since his disabled list stint, Reddick has a .301 batting average to complement his six home runs and eight doubles for the Athletics, but he hasn't relied on an inflated BABIP to achieve a high average. Reddick's BABIP since his return is .275, which is just three points higher than his career mark.

The key to Reddick's lofty status among his fellow outfielders (19th in Head-to-Head, 23rd in Rotisserie) is his near-refusal to take a strike. Since his July 22 activation, Reddick has the 17th-lowest called strike rate among hitters who have seen at least 300 pitches, allowing just 11.9 percent of pitches he has seen get called for strikes (as compared to the median rate of 16.7 percent). That has aided Reddick in striking out just seven times in 103 at-bats. Among the top 25 outfielders during this period, only Ben Revere, Melky Cabrera and Norichika Aoki have even come close to Reddick's strikeout rate or total.

Over most of his career, Reddick has been a pretty typical hitter in terms of his tendency to take a strike, so who knows if he can keep this going? We've seen strange things happen before over the course of 100 or so at-bats, but if Reddick continues to blend his new aggressive approach with the decent contact rate he's shown over the years, he could be legitimate as a top 25 outfielder.


Josh Reddick swats 10th home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick went 1 for 2 with two walks and a two-run home run in his team's 8-2 victory over the Astros Monday.

Reddick put his team up 3-0 with his fourth-inning blast, and he now has more home runs in August (four) than in any other month this season. He has hit .256/.314/.438 with 10 home runs and 39 RBI in 281 at-bats.


Athletics bench Brandon Moss, Josh Reddick against lefty


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) A matchup against tough southpaw C.J. Wilson has Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss and outfielder Josh Reddick out of the lineup Saturday night.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
