Athletics put Reddick on DL; designate Neshek

The Oakland Athletics placed right fielder Josh Reddick on the

15-day disabled list on Monday with a sprained right wrist.

He injured the wrist on Sunday and was hitting .213 with 10

homers and 46 RBIs in 97 games.

Oakland selected first baseman Daric Barton from Triple-A

Sacramento to take Reddick’s place on the roster. Brandon Moss will

start in right field in Monday night’s game against the Detroit

Tigers and Barton will start at first base.

The Athletics also designated right-handed relief pitcher Pat

Neshek for assignment on Monday. He was 2-1 with a 3.58 ERA in 41

games.

Right-handed pitcher Evan Scribner was recalled from Sacramento

to take Neshek’s roster spot.
