Josh Reddick passed his final set of tests before being allowed back on the field.  Reddick, who was involved in a three-player collision earlier this week, had been experiencing concussion-like symptoms. He was not placed on the DL, but the team held him out of action for one game.  Yesterday, Reddick was able to decide if he would return. Reddick, by the way, went through some concussion tests today too. He passed em all, which is how he got himself back in lineup. — Jane Lee (@JaneMLB) August 3, 2013 The Oakland Athletics are perhaps the most surprising team in baseball, and Reddick has been a big part of their success.  Beyond his skill on the field, Reddick is clearly a team leader and an inspiration.  He and his A's are now 63-46.  They hold a 2.5 game lead over the Texas Rangers. Reddick is hitting .213 on the season, but he has struggled through injuries for much of the season.  Of the A's 109 games, Reddick has played in just 78.  He is in his fourth Major League season, and he has proven he can be a valuable asset at the plate.  With the Red Sox in 2011, Reddick hit .280/.327/.457.  Last season, he still managed .242/.305/.463 while playing in the most games of his career. Regardless of Reddick's low batting average this season, the A's want him in the lineup day in and day out.  Last night, he drew three walks and scored a run.  The A's were not able to overcome Texas, though, and lost 8-3.
