The announcement comes from the Oakland A’s official Twitter feed …

Reddick is getting off to a late start this season after battling a right oblique strain for much of the spring. He has the pleasure of facing Mariners ace Felix Hernandez in his debut Sunday afternoon in Oakland.

Reddick, 28, batted .264/.316/.446 with 12 home runs and 54 RBI in 109 games last year for the A’s.

Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. scaled the center field fence to rob Padres shortstop Luis Urías of a solo home run in the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon’s game. Urías was trying to take advantage of a 0-1 slider from Ryan Brasier. Had Bradley not made the grab, the Padres’ lead would have been extended to 4-1.

Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they weren’t able to take advantage of Bradley’s effort, dropping Sunday’s contest 3-1. They still won the series against the Padres, however. The Sox will continue their road trip for two games against the Rockies followed by three versus the Angels.
