Athletics activate RF Reddick from disabled list (Yahoo Sports)
Oakland Athletics right fielder Josh Reddick returned from a second stint on the disabled list because of an injured right knee. Reddick, who was activated Tuesday, was sidelined June 29 with the right knee strain after sitting out June 1-23 with a hyperextended knee. Manager Bob Melvin plans to have Reddick – who will wear a brace – in the lineup often because of his bat and defensive presence. Also Tuesday, Melvin said he spoke briefly the day before with pitcher Tommy Milone about his request for a trade given his recent success and demotion.
