Meet the newest Dodgers: Josh Reddick

first_imgAcquired from A’s Background: Originally drafted by the Boston Red Sox, Reddick went to the A’s as part of the December 2011 trade that sent reliever Andrew Bailey to Boston. In his first full big-league season, Reddick hit 32 home runs and won a Gold Glove Award in 2012. He hasn’t quite replicated that season in the years, due in part to injuries. He did have a 20-homer season last year and continues to play above-average defense.Scouting report: Reddick is a significantly better version of the Andre Ethier they planned to have in their outfield this season. His average (.296) and OPS (.816) this season are career-highs but he has been limited to 68 games by a broken thumb. Like Ethier, though, Riddick struggles against left-handed pitching. This season, he is 11 for 64 (.172) against left-handers. All of his 20 extra-base hits this season have come against right-handed pitching.
