Athletics’ Reddick out with wrist injury

Oakland Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick is expected to be

sidelined for a few days with a sore right wrist.

Reddick is out of Tuesday’s lineup against Cleveland and Oakland

manager Bob Melvin says he will likely be unavailable for the

remainder of the four-game series, which concludes Thursday.

Reddick has struggled this season, batting. 152, the

third-lowest average in the American League. He’s also in a

3-for-27 slump in his last 10 games.

Reddick was a key member of Oakland’s drive to the AL West title

last season when he batted .242 with 32 homers and 85 RBIs. He has

one homer and 14 RBIs in 29 games this season. Michael Taylor is

starting in right field against Cleveland.
