Josh Reddick’s recent tear at the plate was recognized Monday when the A’s outfielder was named co-American League Player of the Week along with Houston’s Jose Altuve.
Reddick hit .478 with three home runs and 12 RBI in the week that ended Sunday. He had 11 hits and scored eight runs, and he notched four multi-hit games during the week. After beginning the season on the disabled list with an oblique injury, he’s emerged as one of Oakland’s most productive hitters, prompting a move from the bottom-half of the order up to the No. 3 spot.
Reddick is riding a career-high 11-game hitting streak, during which he’s hitting .500 (19-for-38). For the season, Reddick is hitting .391 with four homers and 20 RBI, which is tied with Stephen Vogt for the team lead.
