Latest Update Josh Redick is not in the Athletics starting lineup on Thursday. Thu Sep, 11, 11:02 AM
An impressive athlete, he has a good frame with good home-run power and decent speed. Can play any outfield position and has a very good throwing arm (perfect for right field).
Flaws: : Still developing his overall game, he appears raw at times. Needs to display more discipline on the basepaths. Would benefit by shortening his swing a little. Is a bit injury-prone.
Maybe if Reddick wasn't slashing .170/.240/.193 against southpaws this season he'd be in the lineup, but alas, he is and Chris Sale is on the mound for the White Sox. Manager Bob Melvin has opted to go with Sam Fuld in right field.Analyst: Howard Bender
Since returning from the disabled list July 22nd, Reddick's slashed .285/.333.515 with seven home runs while playing his customary gold-glove caliber defense. All said, he's been Oakland's most consistent contributor over the season's second half and he'll need to keep it going if the A's are going to make a playoff push. Analyst: Spencer Silva
After a terrible first half of the season (.229 BA), Reddick has really turned things around since returning from the All-Star break, slashing .285/.333/.515 with six home runs and 18 RBI over his last 130 at-bats. Although he has struggled against southpaws this season (.174 BA), Reddick remains a solid pay when in the Athletics starting lineup as long as he can keep up his current pace against right-handed pitchers (.283 BA).

Since returning from the All-Star break, Reddick is slashing .300/.220/.550 with five home runs and 13 RBI over his last 100 at-bats as he continues to build on a strong finish after hitting just .229 in the first half of the year. Outside of the shallowest of league formats, Reddick should be owned and started while swinging a hot bat. Analyst: Matthew Beck
