Josh Reddick took batting practice Friday in Houston before Oakland's series opener against the Astros. The A's right fielder appeared to do so without any strain to his injured right wrist, and he's expected to start a rehab assignment with Double-A Stockton on Monday.
The rehab stint is expected to move to Sacramento on Tuesday for a stop in Triple-A, and Reddick hopes to join his teammates on the big league club at some point next week.
Reddick went hard into the wall in foul ground on April 7 while playing in Houston and left the field holding his right wrist. He returned after four days off, but lingering issues with the wrist landed him on the disabled list on May 8.
Reddick, 26, is under-performing after a breakout season in his first year with the A's. He's batting .152 (14-for-92) in 29 games with one home run after 32 home runs last season.
