Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Athletics | Josh Reddick placed on DL

The Oakland Athletics have placed OF Josh Reddick (wrist) on the 15-day disabled list because of a sprained right wrist. In a corresponding move, the team recalled 1B Daric Barton from Triple-A Sacramento. The team also designated RP Pat Neshek for assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Barton and Chris B. Young likely will see increased playing time while Reddick is out of the lineup. Barton probably will play at first base when Brandon Moss is moved to right field. Owners in AL-only leagues should consider adding Barton because he should see game action. Young could be an option in deeper leagues if he receives more playing time.
