Right fielder Josh Reddick made a return trip to the disabled list Sunday morning, and the A’s recalled first baseman Nate Freiman to take his roster spot.

Freiman is in the lineup at first base against Miami Marlins left-hander Andrew Heaney, with Moss shifting to right field. Moss has gotten a good chunk of playing time in right field when Reddick has been out of the lineup, and it makes sense that with Freiman being called up, Moss will see lots more time in right for as long as Reddick is on the D.L.

Catcher Stephen Vogt also is an option in right field.

Reddick missed 20 games after hyperextending his right knee, and he was playing just his fourth game Saturday since coming off the D.L. when he re-injured his knee and left the game to start the bottom of the third.

Freiman was hitting .277 with Triple-A Sacramento with 14 home runs and a Pacific Coast League-best 69 RBI in 76 games. He spent all of last season with the big league club as a rookie, hitting .274 with four homers and 24 RBI, as he saw most of his time playing first against left-handed starters.
