Josh Reddick heating up with consecutive three-hit games


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick is showing some real signs of snapping out of his season-long slump, as he put together his second three-hit game in a row Saturday in a 4-3 win over the Astros.

Reddick went 3 for 5 in the game with three singles, one night after adding a home run to his three hits. He drove in one run in the win.

Reddick has raised his batting average more than 100 points with his last two performances, but still sits at just .200, with a .533 OPS overall in 50 at-bats. 


Josh Reddick hits first home run


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick hit his first home run Friday against the Astros.

Reddick had his best game of the season, picking up three hits, including the long ball. After hitting a two-run shot of Jared Cosart in the first inning, Reddick singled in the third and seventh innings. 

He finished the game 3 for 4, with one run scored and two RBI. He raised his average to .156 with the strong performance. 


Josh Reddick expected back in lineup Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2014) Despite recent speculation, Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick will not be sent down to the minors. In fact, he is expected back in the starting lineup Saturday against the Mariners, managers Bob Melvin told the Bay Area News Group Friday.

Melvin believes Reddick has been pulling his head off ball as he swings. He has just three hits in 29 at-bats this season with no home runs and one RBI.

Josh Reddick could be on verge of demotion


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2014) Josh Reddick could be the odd man out upon the impending return of fellow Athletics outfielder Craig Gentry (back) from the disabled list. A slump that extends back through the 2013 season might land Reddick in the minors.

Reddick, who will sit Friday night in Seattle while former lesser-lights Sam Fuld and Daric Barton play, has just three hits in 29 at-bats this season with no home runs and one RBI.

The more time marches by, the more a 2012 season in which he compiled a stat line of .242/.305./.463 seems to be a flash-in-the-pan.


Manager suggests Josh Reddick 'get out of his own way'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick was held out of the starting lineup Thursday against the Twins. Manager Bob Melvin said it was just a rest day and expects Reddick back in the starting lineup Friday against the Mariners.

Reddick is off to a brutal start offensively, batting .103 (3 for 29) with 13 strikeouts in seven games.

"After a great spring, he's pretty disappointed in the way he's going right now," Melvin said, per the Contra Costa Times. "For me, more than anything, he's got to get out of his own way. He's got some negative thoughts. (He needs to) try to get back to thinking positively.

"I don't see anything physical, certainly not health. And his swings look good. I don't know how he's missing some of them. It's not like he's lunging. It's not like he's having to catch up with his hands. He looks pretty balanced at the plate."


Athletics facing roster crunch when Craig Gentry returns


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) The Athletics will face a roster crunch when outfielder Craig Gentry returns, according to the San Francisco Chronicle

The team already has four outfielders, none of which are great candidates to be sent down. Both Coco Crisp and Yoenis Cespedes are sure bets to remain with the club. Sam Fuld is out of options, but the team wants to keep him around.

That could leave Josh Reddick as the odd man out. Reddick has been a regular with the club for a couple seasons now, but got off to a slow start and can still be optioned to the minors. Reddick understands the thought behind the move. "If that is what's best for the team, they have to do what they've got to do," Reddick said. "Obviously, I'm not doing the job right now."

It's unclear if the team will consider carrying five outfielders in order to make things work.


Josh Reddick has three hits through two spring games


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick, who played through a wrist injury last season, is already off to a solid start through two spring training games.

In his spring debut, he robbed Mike Morse of a home run with spectacular catch over the outfield wall. In his second game, he went 2 for 2 with a single and a double in an 11-3 defeat to the Brewers. He is 3 of 5 with an RBI through two Cactus League games.

Josh Reddick looking to put last year behind him


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2014) Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick is hoping to put last season behind him, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

Reddick has already met with hitting coach Chili Davis to talk about ways to improve his numbers. A wrist injury was the main reason for the outfielder's struggles in 2013. Reddick said the injury is not an issue now.

Last season, Reddick hit .226/.307/.379 in 385 at-bats.


Josh Reddick regrets playing through injury in 2013


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/15/2014) Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick traced his miserable 2013 to trying to play through a right wrist injury sustained when he crashed into a wall chasing after a foul ball during the first road trip of the season in Houston. He was twice placed on the disabled list.

"Knowing what I know now, I would go on the disabled list right away," he told the San Jose Mercury News. "When I eventually did go on the disabled list, I was thinking to myself, 'I should have done this three weeks ago.'"

Reddick has proclaimed himself 100 percent healthy heading into 2014 and is expressing confidence in a bounce-back season. His batting average last season dropped from .242 to .226 and slugging percentage plummeted from .463 to .379.


Josh Reddick up to 195 pounds


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2014) Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick has reported to camp at 195 pounds, which is 15 pounds above his listed weight, per MLB.com.

Reddick took a major step back in 2013 after a 2012 season in which he slammed 32 home runs. Perhaps the extra weight will be worked off, but it's possible that he added the bulk to regain the power lost last year, when he batted just .226 with 12 home runs in 385 at-bats.


Report: A's, Josh Reddick nearing deal


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/18/2014) The Athletics and outfielder Josh Reddick are expected to come to terms on a deal on Saturday, the Bay Area News Group reports. Both sides are expected to split difference on salary figures. Reddick filed for $3.2 million while the A's countered at $2 million -- a gap of $1.2 million.

Reddick underwent wrist surgery in October, after posting a .226/.307/.379 with 12 homers and 56 RBI in 385 at-bats last season.

A's tender contracts to nine arbitration-eligible players


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) The Athletics opted not to let go of nine arbitration-eligible players, as they tendered contracts to them all prior to Monday's deadline. The players are: catcher John Jason, infielders Daric Barton, Brandon Moss and Jed Lowrie, outfielders Josh Reddick and Seth Smith, and pitchers Jerry Blevins, Jesse Chavez and Fernando Rodriguez.

The team has already reached a one-year contract with Rodriguez, though details have not been announced by the team. They will likely continue to negotiate with the other players prior to arbitration hearings. 


Josh Reddick undergoes wrist surgery


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2013) Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick underwent wrist surgery Wednesday, according to MLB.com.

Reddick had an MRI on his wrist shortly after the season ended, which determined he needed surgery. He is expected to be ready by spring training. Reddick hit just .226/.307/.379 in 385 at-bats.
