Oakland Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick is considered day-to-day after having the wind knocked out of him and sustaining an upper back bruise while colliding with the right field wall on the final out of Friday's 14-9 win over the host Baltimore Orioles.

Reddick showed no signs of a concussion or head injury, and A's manager Bob Melvin said Reddick will probably not undergo further testing, according to MLB.com.

"He took a pretty good blow," Melvin told reporters after the game. "We'll see where we're at with him (Saturday). If we need to give him a day, we'll give him a day."

After the collision, Reddick stayed down and rubbed his head as team trainers and Melvin came out to check on him. He had a small bruise behind his right shoulder. Reddick then got up but was driven to the A's clubhouse in a cart.

"He was walking around after," Melvin said. "It stunned him, you could tell he was a little bit stunned, and therefore you're thinking maybe it was something to the head. But I think just the collision with his back and knocking the wind out of him, it stunned him and took him a while to get up and have all of his actions about him."

Reddick is batting .271 and leads the A's with 22 home runs and 49 RBI.
