Diamondbacks' Josh Reddick: DFA'd Thursday
Reddick was designated for assignment Thursday.
An accomplished veteran like Reddick could be attractive on waivers, but his .258/.285/.371 slash line suggests he's past his days of being an effective everyday player.

Diamondbacks' Josh Reddick: Starting Sunday
Reddick (illness) is starting in right field and batting fifth Sunday versus the Dodgers.
Reddick was scratched from Tuesday's lineup with a non-COVID-19 illness, and he was limited to bench duties over the past few days. The veteran outfielder has appeared in 51 games this season and is slashing .264/.291/.361 in 151 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Josh Reddick: Scratched from Tuesday's lineup
Reddick was scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the Rangers with a non-COVID-related illness.
It's unclear how long the illness will sideline Reddick, but details about his condition should become available following the contest, if not sooner. Andrew Young enters the lineup as the designated hitter in his place.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Josh Reddick: Makes first post-break start
Reddick started in right field and went 2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 11-6 win over the Pirates.
Reddick made his first start since returning from the All-Star break. With Kole Calhoun back from an injury and the organizational decision to focus on its younger talent, Reddick's playing time will be sporadic going forward. He's a likely candidate to be flipped at the trade deadline, which could make him a more attractive fantasy option. Reddick is hitting a thin .275 with a career-low .102 ISO.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Josh Reddick: Sitting in fourth straight
Reddick remains out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Pirates.
The veteran outfielder will be on the bench for the fourth game in a row and isn't likely to see his opportunities increase moving forward as the 27-68 Diamondbacks prioritize the development of younger players in the midst of a rebuilding season. Reddick is a candidate to be dealt ahead of the July 30 trade deadline if a contending club is in need of a lefty-hitting corner outfielder.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Josh Reddick: Smashes first homer
Reddick went 3-for-4 with a double, two-run home run and an additional run as Arizona triumphed 5-3 over San Francisco on Thursday.
Reddick was Arizona's most productive hitter in the game, doubling and scoring in the second, homering in the fourth to regain the lead, and singling in the eighth. The three-hit game elevated the veteran outfielder's average from .264 to .281, though he has just a single home run in 36 games this season, putting him on pace for a career low since he became a regular in 2012....

Diamondbacks' Josh Reddick: Enters for Marte again
Reddick entered Saturday's game as a pinch runner for Ketel Marte (hamstring) in the first inning and stayed in to play right field. He went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored.
It was the second time this week that Reddick entered a game for Marte due to a hamstring issue. The Diamondbacks will likely give Marte more time off, which gives Reddick an opportunity for regular at-bats in the short term. Pavin Smith, who had started the game in right field, moved to center field Saturday, where Marte had been.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Josh Reddick: Fills in for Marte
Reddick replaced an injured Ketel Marte (hamstring) in Tuesday's 5-0 loss to Milwaukee. He went 0-for-2 with a walk.
Reddick entered the game as a pinch runner when Marte pulled up after hitting a ground-rule double in the first inning. He played right field while Pavin Smith moved from right to center. Hamstrings have been a recurring issue for Marte this season, so the Diamondbacks will want to make sure he's 100 percent. This could be a path to everyday at-bats for Reddick.... See More ...

Diamondbacks' Josh Reddick: Sitting versus righty again
Reddick is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.
For the third time in five games, Reddick finds himself on the bench against a right-handed starting pitcher (Freddy Peralta). The 21-53 Diamondbacks don't have much to gain by handing extensive playing time to a 34-year-old on an expiring contract, so Reddick will most likely continue to lose work to Pavin Smith and Josh Rojas in the corner outfield as the season unfolds....

Diamondbacks' Josh Reddick: Laces three singles
Reddick went 3-for-5 with a run and three RBI in a 9-8 loss to the Dodgers on Sunday.
Reddick recorded singles in the second, sixth and eighth innings, igniting a six-run near-comeback in the eighth. He'd been mired in a slump that saw his average dip from .333 on June 5 to .253 prior to Sunday's game, so Reddick will look to use the performance as a launching pad.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Josh Reddick: Not in Friday's lineup
Reddick will sit Friday against the Angels.
Reddick sits even with a righty (Shohei Ohtani) set to take the mound for the Angels. He's gone just 2-for-18 at the plate over his last seven games. Pavin Smith will start in right field in Reddick's absence.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Josh Reddick: Sits versus righty
Reddick is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.
Reddick has been getting regular work against right-handers of late, but he'll still receive Sunday off even with Corbin Burnes on the bump for Milwaukee. Pavin Smith checks in for Reddick in right field.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Josh Reddick: Doubles in loss
Reddick went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Saturday's 7-5 loss to Milwaukee.
Reddick was back in the starting lineup Saturday and posted his sixth multi-hit game in 12 games as a starter. He and Pavin Smith are sharing right field, though recently both have been in the lineup against right-handers with Smith filling in at first base for Christian Walker (.167 against righties)....

Diamondbacks' Josh Reddick: Out against lefty
Reddick is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets.
The lefty-hitting Reddick will sit with a southpaw (David Peterson) on the hill for the Mets, but the veteran outfielder should enjoy near-everyday reps against right-handed pitching while he continues to wield a hot bat. In his first 12 games with Arizona, Reddick is hitting .370 with seven doubles, six RBI and four runs, but he has yet to draw a walk in 46 plate appearances and has benefited from a .436 BABIP....

Diamondbacks' Josh Reddick: Walks off Mets
Reddick went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Tuesday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Mets.
Reddick played hero for the night, as he doubled in two runs in the bottom of the 10th inning for a walkoff victory. He's done nothing but hit since the Diamondbacks selected his contract from Triple-A Reno and has multiple hits over four consecutive starts (11-for-20). It was thought that he and Pavin Smith would have to share right field after Christian Walker came off the injured list, but the two lefty hitters have been in the lineup the last two games against right-handed starters while the righty-hitting Walker took a seat....
