Oakland A's outfielder Josh Reddick has been recovering from an injured wrist for the second time this season and feels he will not need more than the 15 days allotted on the disabled list to recover. As reported by Jeff Kirshman of MLB.com,  Reddick received a cortisone shot on Wednesday and said he hasn't felt soreness in the past day and a half. If his progress continues, he should be able to come off the DL when he is eligible on September 10. Barring no setbacks, Reddick should be able to take batting practice in a few days.  Teammate Coco Crisp had a similar injury which did not require time on the disabled list. He was treated with a cortisone shot. Reddick hopes he will have as much success from the shot that Crisp had. "Hopefully they put in mine what they put in Coco's and I can go out there and do what he's doing," Reddick said. Reddick had 32 home runs and 85 rbi's in a breakout season in 2012.  This year, he has 10 home runs, 46 rbi's and a .213 average.  In 396 career games, Reddick has a .237 average with 52 home runs and 168 rbi's.
