The Oakland A’s are looking to recover after falling flat on their faces in 2014 and losing key pitchers and batters. Power-hitting outfielder Josh Reddick having a right oblique strain doesn’t help matters.
Minnie Minoso dies – First black player to play baseball in Chicago dies at age 90
Francisco Rodriguez Brewers – Milwaukee Brewers re-sign closer to two-year deal
Adam Wainwright – St. Louis Cardinals starting ace expected to be ready for Opening Day
Reddick had a breakout season in 2012, his first season with the A’s. The outfielder hit 32 home runs with 85 runs batted in, but he has not discovered this same power stroke for the past two seasons.
He may have to miss the beginning of the season since his oblique strain since it’s more serious than initially expected.
The A’s have already lost first baseman Brandon Moss and outfielder Yoenis Cespedes through trades, so they will hope to see Reddick back in the lineup as soon as possible.
