The Oakland A’s got some good news today as they have reinstated outfielder Josh Reddick from the 15-day disabled list.
He is not in the starting lineup today, but could potentially be used as a pinch hitter if need be.
Reddick was recently placed on the DL after he sprained his wrist on August 26th when trying to make a play at the wall. He sprained the wrist earlier in the season as well and was on the disabled list from May 7th through the 30th.
He comes back to the A’s with a .213 batting average which includes 10 home runs and 46 RBI’s in 87 games with Oakland. He was starting to heat up as well before he got injured, hitting .264 with five home runs and nine RBI’s. The team will hope he can get back into form to help out on the offensive side, with the A’s currently two games ahead of the Texas Rangers for first in the AL West.
Also, in more injury-related news, Josh Donaldson is back in the lineup after missing a game due to soreness in his right quad. Unlike Reddick, he will be in the starting lineup and at third base.
