A’s outfielder Josh Reddick exited Saturday’s game after hyperextending his left knee and now he’s headed to the the disabled list.
Reddick has struggled mightily since a breakout 2012 season, hitting just .222 with 16 homers and a .666 OPS in 164 games, so the A’s won’t exactly miss his production in the lineup. Craig Gentry will likely see extended action in the outfield with Reddick out and the injury could also mean more playing time for recent trade pickup Kyle Blanks.
In a corresponding roster move the A’s have activated reliever Ryan Cook from the disabled list after the right-hander missed the past month with a strained forearm. Cook isn’t a big name because he hasn’t been given a chance to rack up saves yet, but he’s been one of the best relievers in the league since debuting for the A’s in 2012.
