Athletics | Josh Reddick leaves yard Saturday

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 05:26:39 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick hit his first home run of the season against the Kansas City Royals Saturday, April 18. Reddick finished 2-for-4 with three RBI in the Athletics 5-0 win over the Royals.

Fantasy Tip: With 24 at-bats under his belt, Reddick ($2,400 salary, 4.8% of cap) should now have the rust shaken off. He missed the beginning of the season with an oblique injury. At his low cap hit, FantasyScore players can start Reddick with confidence against weak right-handed pitchers.

Athletics | Josh Reddick out first week

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 06:02:43 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (oblique) will be on the disabled list for the first five games of the season with a strained oblique. 2B Ben Zobrist will begin the season in right field for the club.

Fantasy Tip: Reddick ($3,500, 7.0% of your cap) has cheap power potential if he can stay on the field and regain his stroke. Avoid him on FantasyScore, but don't forget about him completely. As for Zobrist, at $4,900 (9.8%), he's an upper echelon second baseman.

Athletics | Josh Reddick unlikely for opener

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 11:05:28 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (oblique) is unlikely to be ready for the season opener, according to manager Bob Melvin.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't come as a big surprise, as oblique strains can often be tricky and require plenty of rest. For that reason, Reddick ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) doesn't make for a strong FantasyScore play when he initially returns to action.

Athletics | Josh Reddick takes batting practice

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 16:31:38 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (oblique) took batting practice Thursday, March 26, and is expected to return to the lineup Saturday, March 28, or Sunday, March 29.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to check back for updates on Reddick's ($3,500. 7.0%) pursuit to open the season with the team. He is a serious injury risk and played just 114 games in 2013 and 109 last year. Still there is power upside, and Reddick is a viable late-round selection if you're lacking pop in the endgame of drafts. Allow Reddick to prove his health before utilizing him in FantasyScore contests.

Athletics | Josh Reddick eyeing weekend return

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 14:59:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (oblique) could see game action as early as this weekend, which is much earlier than anticipated after an MRI exam earlier this month on his right oblique strain put opening day in question. Reddick said he still has some tightness when swinging the bat, but he is throwing more than 100 feet without any discomfort. He also said he has enough time to be ready for opening day.

Fantasy Tip: The timetable seems optimistic, and moving Reddick up your draft cheat sheets is unadvised. He is a late-round flier with power upside, but he remains a serious injury risk. Reddick only played 114 and 109 games in the 2013 and 2014 seasons, respectively. Continue to check back for updates on his recovery and return timeline.

Athletics | Josh Reddick progressing slowly

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 12:00:45 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (oblique) swung a bat without contact again Friday, March 20, and said he expects to hit off a tee Saturday, March 21.

Fantasy Tip: It was believed Reddick would hit off a tee Friday, so Oakland is clearly being extremely cautious with him. Reddick played just 114 games in 2012 and 109 games last season, so health has been a reoccurring issue for him. He is best left until the late rounds of mixed league drafts, and he might miss most of the first month of the season.

Athletics | Josh Reddick swings

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 09:38:34 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (oblique) swung a bat without hitting Wednesday, March 18, and he didn't suffer any setbacks. He'll likely attempt to hit off a tee Friday, March 20.

Fantasy Tip: Reddick has had his share of injuries in the past two seasons, and he hasn't played over 114 games since he played 156 in 2012. For that reason alone, he shouldn't be considered until the later rounds of mixed leagues. Oblique injuries can be tricky, too, so Reddick may not play for much of the first month of the season.
