Athletics Injury Update: Josh Reddick gets off to good start on rehab

By on 7/15/2014 09:30:00 AM

The Oakland Athletics seem well on their way to another division title and postseason appearance even though they are without one of their regulars, right fielder Josh Reddick, since June 28 (and throughout most of June). Reddick is on the disabled list because of a strained right knee, but he began a Minor League rehab assignment Sunday. It turned out a good night for him.

The July 14 Stockton Ports post-game report says that Reddick went 4 for 4 and drove in three runs in helping the Class-A Advanced Ports win 11-1. The Athletics expect Reddick to play in the Minors through the All-Star break and possibly rejoin the team once Major League play resumes on Friday, July 18, said Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle last week.
Reddick last played for Oakland on June 28. He is hitting .229 with 4 HR and 29 RBI in 54 games. He missed most of June with a hyper-extended knee but was 5 for 11 in his four games back from June 24-28.

The Athletics have the Majors' best record of 59-36 and sit 1.5 games clear atop the American League West with the Los Angeles Angels right behind them as most of the league takes a few days off for the All-Star break.
