Athletics | Josh Reddick close to a rehab assignment

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 15:47:18 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (thumb) is tentatively scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Class AAA Tennessee Sunday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: Don't underestimate Reddick when healthy. He returned a .322/.394/.466 slash line with 21 runs, five home runs, 18 RBI and four stolen bases through 41 games before the thumb injury. He's currently way ahead of his original return timeline of six weeks. Stay tuned for updates.

Athletics | Jake Smolinski back to the bench

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 10:20:36 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Jake Smolinski, despite going 8-for-16 with two home runs during a six-game hitting streak, will move back to the bench with the team back to facing right-handed pitchers. 1B Max Muncy started Thursday, June 16. Head coach Bob Melvin thinks Smolinski has a chance to be an everyday player in the big leagues, but that time isn't now, especially with OF Josh Reddick (thumb) coming back soon.

Fantasy Tip: Well there you go. Make sure you don't invest too much in either Smolinski or Muncy in AL-only leagues, since they're both short-term outfield filler until Reddick returns.

Athletics | Josh Reddick taking swings

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 16:16:58 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (thumb) took 25 swings off a tee Monday, June 13, and the next step in his rehab is to take batting practice.

Fantasy Tip: Reddick still has a ways to go before he's ready to return to Oakland's lineup, so his fantasy owners will need to stay patient and keep him stashed. The outfielder was batting .322 with five home runs, 18 RBI and four steals. Jake Smolinski will retain short-term value in AL-only leagues as the everyday right fielder with Reddick sidelined.

Athletics | Josh Reddick rehab update

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 11:13:47 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (thumb) has resumed playing catch and taking light swings.

Fantasy Tip: Reddick could return to action before the end of this month and should remain stashed in the majority of seasonal fantasy leagues. The 29-year-old was batting .322 with five home runs and 18 RBI through 165 at-bats before landing on the disabled list. OFs Max Muncy, Jake Smolinski and Billy Burns will continue to split time in right field while Reddick recovers.

Athletics | Josh Reddick's thumb fracture near tip

Mon, 23 May 2016 17:44:59 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick's (thumb) fracture in his thumb is not in the joint, but rather closer to the tip. That equals about four weeks of recovery, which is towards the lower end of expectations.

Fantasy Tip: While it's bad timing for Reddick's injury, considering he's been out to a scorching start in 2016, he at least receives this bit of good news that should have him back before the end of June. In the meantime, Jake Smolinski is the biggest beneficiary, but owners should wait till he displays some sort of consistency before thinking of adding him.

Athletics | Josh Reddick to visit hand specialist

Fri, 20 May 2016 16:04:41 -0700

Updating a previous report, Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (thumb) will be examined by a hand specialist Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: More details and a concrete return timeline will likely be available after the examination, so check back for updates. As it stands, Reddick is a stash-worthy outfielder in all but shallow leagues. He is expected to miss four to six weeks with the injury. Look for Oakland to mix and match Coco Crisp and Chris Coghlan into their lineup and both are deep mixed and AL-only options.

Athletics | Josh Reddick officially on DL

Fri, 20 May 2016 12:05:12 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (thumb) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, May 20. OF Jake Smolinski was recalled from Class AAA Nashville in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Reddick was one of Oakland's more consistent and productive hitters (.322-5-18), so this is a big blow for them. You'll be forced to stash him everywhere, but he's likely to miss four to six weeks. This injury assures that Coco Crisp will continue seeing regular starts, but his power and speed numbers are down, and he's a mediocre outfielder in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Chris Coghlan should remain relevant in those same formats and could steal time from Crisp once Jed Lowrie returns to play second base.

Athletics | Josh Reddick fractures thumb

Fri, 20 May 2016 05:09:28 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (thumb) suffered a fractured thumb while sliding into second base Thursday, May 19, against the New York Yankees. Reddick was 2-for-3 and had a .322 batting average before getting hurt, and he will see a hand specialist on Friday, May 20. Reddick could miss as much as six weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Oakland fans and Reddick owners are taking a deep breath this morning. This could be a setback. You may want to reserve Reddick for the time being in keeper leagues and not pick him up in daily contests. Chris Coghlan and Tyler Ladendorf could see increased playing time if this injury results in a long absence.
