X-rays were negative for both outfielder Josh Reddick and starter Brett Anderson after the A’s duo suffered injuries in Sunday’s win over the Astros, CSNBayArea.com’s Casey Pratt reports.
Reddick was hurt when his right wrist slammed into the wall in foul territory as he went after a ball in the fifth inning. He immediately departed, and the fear was that he may have suffered a break. As is, he’s listed as day-to-day with a sprain.
“I was scared,” Reddick said. “I was nervous that something was seriously wrong I lost feeling in the area for quite a while.”
Anderson was hit on his pitching thumb by a comebacker in the second, but he stayed in and ended up getting the win after striking out 10 in six innings. He appears likely to make his next start.
Meanwhile, Jed Lowrie, still somehow uninjured this deep into the season, hit his third homer as part of Oakland’s 9-3 victory.
