The A’s dodged a bullet today, as outfielder Josh Reddick is listed as day-to-day with a sprained right wrist after crashing into the wall while diving to catch a foul ball (click here to watch).
Reddick left the game after the play in the fifth inning, and was sent to the hospital where X-rays came back negative.
“It was a huge sigh of relief,” Reddick said. “I was scared. I was nervous that something was seriously wrong because I lost feeling in that area for quite awhile. I never lost feeling in the fingers, which I knew was a good sign. But for as hard as that wall is with all that metal wiring, I was really nervous about how serious it was going to be.”
Reddick is expected to be held out of Tuesday’s game against the Angels as a precaution, and will be re-evaluated later in the week.
The A’s defeated the Astros 9-3 on Sunday to sweep the three-game series.
