MLB.com’s Jane Lee reports that the Athletics are expected to activate Josh Reddick from the 15-day disabled list on Sunday. Reddick suffered a strained right oblique early in spring training, playing in only one game in Cactus League action.

Reddick, 28, batted .264/.316/.446 with 12 home runs and 54 RBI in 396 plate appearances last season. He made two trips to the disabled list, both for right knee problems, missing a total of 38 games.

Infielder Tyler Ladendorf will likely be optioned to Triple-A Sacramento to make room for Reddick on the roster. Reddick’s return likely means fewer at-bats for the red-hot rookie Mark Canha, who is batting .500 with a home run, two doubles, and six RBI to start the season.
