According to Jane Lee of MLB.com, Reddick took 20 swings during batting practice yesterday at Minute Maid Park in Houston and said he “felt great.” It was his first time testing his wrist since he was placed on the disabled list earlier this month with a sprained right wrist stemming from a collision with a wall in foul territory in April.
Assuming all goes well during batting practice Saturday, Reddick will play in rehab games with High-A Stockton on Monday and Tuesday. The 26-year-old outfielder hopes to rejoin the Athletics before the end of next week.
The wrist issue seemed to do a number on Reddick’s production, as he was batting just .152 with one homer and a .516 OPS prior to being placed on the disabled list. The A’s are hoping that the extended rest will help get him back on track.
