Found April 07, 2013 on Minus Twenty-Two:
The A’s were able to pull off the sweep on the Astros, who might actually go 1-161 this season, with a win on Sunday, but it didn’t come without two important players suffering injury scares that required X-rays. Outfielder and homeless-looking person Josh Reddick left the game after a frightening incident in the fifth inning in which he crashed into a wall in foul territory. For now, Reddick, whose wrist was reportedly “heavily wrapped” after the game, is day-to-day with a sprained wrist after X-rays turned up negative. Good news for the A’s and Reddick on an injury that looked like it could have been far worse. “I was scared,” Reddick said. “I was nervous that something was seriously wrong I lost feeling in the area for quite a while.” Anderson suffered a left thumb contusion when he tried fielding a line drive with his bare hand in the second inning. It obviously didn’t end well. He remained in the game, though, and picked up the W, finishing with 10 strikeouts, two walks, two u...

Athletics Injury News: X-Rays negative for Josh Reddick, Brett Anderson

The Oakland Athletics got a double dose of good news yesterday after what looked to be a double dose of bad news.  Both Josh Reddick and Brett Anderson had to leave yesterday's game with injuries.  Reddick slammed into the wall while going after a foul ball.  Anderson was hit in the thumb by a comebacker up the middle.  Reddick's injury looked most frightening, but...

Josh Reddick out vs. Angels on Tuesday

A’s outfielder Josh Reddick said he won’t play in Tuesday’s series opener against the Angels in Anaheim due to a sprained wrist suffered Sunday against the Astros. The bearded one injured the wrist on a scary crash with a wall in foul territory in Houston that looked far worse than X-rays later revealed it to be. Reddick confirmed being out of Tuesday’s lineup to 95.7 The...

Josh Reddick's WrestleMania 29 Picks

It's a pretty safe bet that immediately after the Oakland A's finish up with the Houston Astros Sunday, Josh Reddick is going to try and find the nearest television so he can watch some wrestling. You see, the outfielder is a huge fan (dude even carries around his own championship belt) and Sunday, well, Sunday is WrestleMania 29...the biggest night of the year for anyone...

Athletics demote Dan Straily after dominant performance

After dominating the Houston Astros on Friday night, A's starting pitcher Dan Straily got the typical pats on the back and fist pounds from his teammates, and then was demoted to AAA Sacramento to make room for veteran starter Bartolo Colon in the Oakland rotation. Straily knew the move was going to happen, but it's still a little surprising to see a pitcher get sent to the...
