Reddick is out of the lineup again Saturday.
Sam Fuld will once again start in right field, as Reddick sits for the third time in five games. Reddick's splits (.181 average against lefties) dictate that he'll probably be a strict platoon partner the rest of the way, so it's no surprise to see him sit with southpaw C.J. Wilson on the mound for the Angels.

Reddick doubled and tripled in four at-bats Thursday against the Royals, driving in a run and scoring one of his own.
Amazingly, Reddick -- not particularly known as a speedster -- has five triples this year, tying his career high from 2012 (which came in more than twice as many games as the 77 he's played this year). Reddick's hit well since coming off the DL, so he's a solid fantasy option for deeper and AL-only formats, but remains a bit fringy for most standard leagues.
