Position Breakdown
OF - 84
News
Since returning from a knee injury in late July, Josh Reddick has rediscovered the power that had been sorely lacking for him earlier in the season. That has helped to catapult him among the top 25 outfielders in Fantasy since then, but his power resurgence is only part of the story.

Reddick has a history of extreme flyball hitting, and while that gives him the potential to hit 30-plus homers like he did in 2012, it also has a little something to do with his career .242 batting average. In 30 games since his disabled list stint, Reddick has a .301 batting average to complement his six home runs and eight doubles for the Athletics, but he hasn't relied on an inflated BABIP to achieve a high average. Reddick's BABIP since his return is .275, which is just three points higher than his career mark.

The key to Reddick's lofty status among his fellow outfielders (19th in Head-to-Head, 23rd in Rotisserie) is his near-refusal to take a strike. Since his July 22 activation, Reddick has the 17th-lowest called strike rate among hitters who have seen at least 300 pitches, allowing just 11.9 percent of pitches he has seen get called for strikes (as compared to the median rate of 16.7 percent). That has aided Reddick in striking out just seven times in 103 at-bats. Among the top 25 outfielders during this period, only Ben Revere, Melky Cabrera and Norichika Aoki have even come close to Reddick's strikeout rate or total.

Over most of his career, Reddick has been a pretty typical hitter in terms of his tendency to take a strike, so who knows if he can keep this going? We've seen strange things happen before over the course of 100 or so at-bats, but if Reddick continues to blend his new aggressive approach with the decent contact rate he's shown over the years, he could be legitimate as a top 25 outfielder.

Athletics pitcher Jeff Samardzija struck out 10 hitters against the Astros Monday.

Samardzija allowed two runs on six hits over eight innings. He struck out 10 and issued one walk during the outing. Samardzija was fantastic for most of the game, tossing seven scoreless innings to open the game. He ran out of gas in his final inning. After notching two strikeouts, Samardzija allowed an infield single to Jose Altuve. Samardzija then allowed a two-run homer to Chris Carter. Samardzija threw 116 pitches during the start.

With the win, Samardzija improved to 6-10. He'll take on the Angels in his next start.

News
Athletics pitcher Jason Hammel had his strong start ruined by the bullpen Tuesday.

Hammel gave up one run on three hits over seven innings. He struck out six and walked one during the outing. Hammel’s only run came in the fourth inning. Dexter Fowler led things off by taking a pitch deep to right field for the solo shot. Hammel gave up just one walk the rest of the game. He set down the last 10 Astros he faced.

Hammel left the game with a one-run lead, but the bullpen couldn’t hold it. Because of that, Hammel came away with a no-decision. He’ll take on the Mariners in his next start.

The Athletics have swapped Jeff Samardzija and Scott Kazmir for the upcoming series with the Angels, according to the Bay Area News Group.

Samardzija will now move up a day and pitch Saturday. Kazmir will be pushed back to Sunday. Both players will take on the Angels. It's unclear if Kazmir was moved in order to give him more rest following a poor start, or if the team just wanted to adjust the pitching matchups based on who the Angels were throwing.
