Reddick projected for four rehab games

OAKLAND -- Things are slowly moving along for Oakland's Gold Glove right fielder.

Josh Reddick's rehab assignment is scheduled to begin Monday with Class A Stockton and continue with Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, manager Bob Melvin announced before Monday's series opener against San Francisco.

"We're looking at probably four [rehab games] right now," Melvin said.

Reddick suffered a right wrist injury that ultimately put him on the disabled list May 8. He took more than 20 batting-practice swings in Houston on Friday and said he "felt great."

Oakland plays the Giants in San Francisco on Wednesday and Thursday, before hosting the White Sox for a three-game set beginning Friday.
