OAKLAND -- Right fielder Josh Reddick went for an MRI on his left ankle Thursday morning after he took a hard fall at first base in Wednesday night’s game.
The MRI showed no fractures in the ankle, which the A’s were most concerned about. Manager Bob Melvin said Reddick also has whiplash-type soreness on the right side of his neck. His availability for the time being is unknown.
Reddick didn’t offer much insight Wednesday morning, other than to show the wrap he had on his left ankle.
He beat out an infield single in the eighth inning Wednesday but tripped as he crossed the bag and fell awkwardly.
Sam Fuld is playing right field Thursday afternoon with Brandon Moss in left field and Alberto Callaspo at first base.
Stephen Vogt, who made a pinch-hitting appearance and was intentionally walked Wednesday, still is not available to play in the field. Melvin said Vogt will do running drills that involve cutting and changing direction Friday. He’s available as a pinch hitter Thursday.
