HOUSTON, Tex. -- Josh Reddick left the game in the fifth inning in Texas with an apparent right arm injury. The A's right fielder collided with the wall in foul territory. As he ran toward a foul ball hit by Jose Altuve, he reached out with his right arm to brace himself from the impact before the collision. The A's said there won't be an update on his condition until after the game.

After the collision, Reddick stayed down for a while. He was visited by trainers and was cradling his right arm as he walked off the field.

Reddick won a gold glove in 2012. His aggressive all out style of play led to many highlight reel catches. A's manager Bob Melvin frequently notes that Reddick only knows one way to play, and that's full go. The A's were up 8-0 at the time of the injury. 

Reddick hit 32 home runs for the A's last season. He is hitting .125 this season with one home run and four RBI in the first seven games. He was 0 for 3 when he left the game.
