Reddick didn’t show any clear signs of pain before he replaced with by Derek Fisher in the sixth inning in the outfield. But he is listed as day-to-day and will get a scheduled day off on Saturday.
From the clubhouse: Josh Reddick left tonight’s game with lower back discomfort. He’s day-to-day.— #AstrosHarvey (@astros) September 23, 2017
Hinch described Reddick's injury as back soreness. He said he doesn't think it's anything to be concerned about.— Jake Kaplan (@jakemkaplan) September 23, 2017
Reddick, 30, is batting .317 (150x473) with 13 home runs and 82 RBIs in 133 games.
Reddick signed a 4-year, $52 million contract with the Astros before the 2017 season. He has proven to be an everyday player batting .326 (29x89) in 55 games against left-handing pitching. The lefty-lefty match had been his kryptonite with a career average of .230 against left-handers over his nine-year career.
Reddick will be the Astros starter in right field if healthy in the playoffs. And he is out for an extended time at all, likely Fisher will step in to fill out the outfield with Cameron Maybin and George Springer.
