News: Reddick returned to action on Tuesday night, going 0-2 against the Astros. Impact: Reddick did not start the game, but pinch hit in the eighth inning and remained in the game in right field. Reddick will be in the lineup against almost all righties and his exceptional defense in right field should keep him there even if he continues to struggle on offense. Since his 2012 breakout season with 32 home runs, Reddick has struggled at the plate (.226 in 2013 and .227 so far in 2014 with only 16 combined home runs) and with injuries.(RotoWire, )

News: Reddick (knee) has officially been activated from the DL. Impact: As expected, Reddick will be activated in advance of Tuesday night's game versus the Astros. He's expected to wear a knee brace for the remainder of the season, but it did not affect his performance while on rehab at Triple-A Sacramento. In a corresponding move, the A's optioned Andy Parrino to Sacramento on Monday.(RotoWire, )

News: Reddick, who is not in the lineup Tuesday, will wear an uncomfortable knee brace for the remainder of the season, CSN California's Joe Stiglich reports. Impact: Manager Bob Melvin said Reddick will play most days against righties, and the Astros are starting southpaw Brett Oberholtzer on Tuesday, which is why he's out of the lineup. Reddick said that offseason rest is the only prescription for his ailing knee and that surgery has not been discussed.(RotoWire, )

News: Reddick (knee) will likely be activated from the disabled list Tuesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: Reddick has done a number on Triple-A pitching during his rehab assignment, but he's expected to wear a knee brace for the rest of the season, and may have to compete with Stephen Vogt for playing time in right field.(RotoWire, )

News: Reddick (knee) could be activated as early as Tuesday, MLB.com's Jane Lee reports. Impact: Manager Doug Melvin said that Reddick, who has tested his knee out while throwing in recent days, felt great when the two spoke Sunday. This is right in line with the last report we had on Reddick which stated he would continue his rehab assignment through the weekend. In 17 plate appearances at Triple-A, Reddick is slashing .438/.471/.625, and certainly appears ready to rejoin the big-league club.(RotoWire, )

News: Reddick (knee) will continue on his rehab assignment through the weekend, MLB.com's Jane Lee reports. Impact: In 17 plate appearances with Triple-A, Reddick is slashing an impressive .438/.471/.625, so he should be up with the A's early next week.(RotoWire, )

News: Reddick (knee) went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in his second rehab game with High-A Stockton on Wednesday. Impact: The 27-year-old went 4-for-4 with a double, a home run and three RBI in his first rehab game with Stockton on Monday. Although the results weren't nearly as good Wednesday, the most important thing is that he again escaped without any sort of setback. Reddick lasted just four games after his return in late June before the knee issue forced him right back onto the shelf, so the A's will likely progress him along more slowly in his latest rehab assignment. He is also expected to wear a brace on the knee for the rest of the season.(RotoWire, )
