PHOENIX, Ariz. -- Josh Reddick was walking around the Oakland Athletics clubhouse without a limp on Sunday. His sprained left ankle was not wrapped.

There doesn't appear to be any lingering effects from the injury he sustained while fielding a fly ball on Friday night. A's manager Bob Melvin expects him to be back in the lineup and in right field on Monday.

A's closer Grant Balfour is expected to pitch on Sunday against the Dodgers. It will be his second Cactus League appearance of the spring. He last pitched on Thursday without issue. After retiring the side in order on nine pitches, Balfour said he didn't feel any pain in his surgically repaired right knee. He topped out at 94 MPH.

At this point, Balfour is on track to be ready by Opening Day.
