Athletics RF Josh Reddick chips away at Indians in Saturday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2015) Athletics right fielder Josh Reddick certainly got involved Saturday night in Cleveland. Every at-bat was a productive one in a close victory.

Reddick hit a sacrifice fly in the first, singled in the fourth, doubled and scored in the seventh and walked and scored in the eighth. His multi-hit game broke a 3-for-18 mini-slump and sweetened his slash line on the year to .288/.345/.458.


A's continue trend of sitting Josh Reddick vs. left-handed pitchers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2015) With Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia on the mound Wednesday, the Athletics once again opted to hold slugger Josh Reddick out of the starting lineup. It was the second time in the last three games Reddick sat because a left-hander started for the opposition.

Reddick is batting .157 with one triple, one home run and nine RBI in 76 plate appearances against lefties in 2015. He doesn't have a strong track record against Sabathia, batting .105 (2 for 19) in his career against the lefty.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

The A's are favored (-105) over the Mariners on Sunday.


A's OF Josh Reddick voices frustration about sitting vs. lefties


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2015) 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.”

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/28/2015) With the Athletics facing a lefty on Thursday, right fielder Josh Reddick will slide down to the seventh spot in the batting order against the Yankees. This will be the lowest Reddick has batted this season.

While overall Reddick has been very productive at the plate, he has struggled against southpaws. Reddick has just one hit in six at-bats (a triple) against left-handers this year. 

He had been batting third for most of the season, but Ben Zobrist has occupied that spot each of the last three games since returning from the disabled list.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/26/2015) Athletics right fielder Josh Reddick is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Tigers. Reddick had started all but two games since returning from the disabled list on April 12. So, with the A's facing a tough lefty in David Price, manager Bob Melvin opted to give Reddick a breather.

"I don't know if I've ever seen him swing better or more consistent," said A's manager Bob Melvin. "When you see him drive balls to center, hit balls hard to left field, he's really matured as a hitter."

According to the Contra Costa Times, Reddick is hitting 15-for-22 from the sixth inning on during the 11-game run. During the streak, he has raised his overall average from .258 to .391.
