Reddick feeling good after first rehab game

OAKLAND -- A day after getting in work with Class A Stockton, outfielder Josh Reddick took his rehab to Sacramento for the start of what's expected to be a three-day stint with the Triple-A River Cats.

Reddick went 1-for-3 and played right field for six innings with the Ports on Monday night, marking the first game action he'd seen since May 6. He was placed on the disabled list May 8 with a right wrist sprain.

"He felt good," manager Bob Melvin said. "No issues."

Oakland's Gold Glove right fielder, hitting just .152, is now scheduled to play three consecutive games with Sacramento.

"He'll play in the field today and then DH tomorrow, see where we're at and maybe play in the field the next day," Melvin said Tuesday.

That puts Reddick on track for a Friday return, the same day Oakland is set to welcome the White Sox for the start of a three-game set.
