Reddick joins Red Sox

On the same day that the Red Sox called up left-handed-hitting first baseman Lars Anderson, fellow prospect Josh Reddick also joined the team Monday. He is not in the lineup as the Red Sox play the first of three with the Rays at Fenway. 

 

The 23-year-old outfielder, who was hitting .266 with 18 homers and 65 RBI, was pulled from Pawtucket's game Monday after the fourth inning and was told he was headed for Boston. Before leaving the game, Reddick had homered and doubled for the PawSox.

 

Reddick has been with the club three times this season, hitting .196 with two extra-base hits (a double and a triple) and two RBI.

Every day, you try to get better and move forward. That's where we're at right now. We have a big game coming up with the Bengals. We'll see on Sunday where we're at. I mean, the season's here.
