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.
