Reddick is not in the starting lineup Friday against the A's.

EDGE Analysis

Reddick is riding a three-game hitting streak and batting .273 with two home runs over the past week, but will take a seat with left-hander Jordan Montgomery on the rubber for the Yankees. Carlos Beltran will fill the void in right field.

Reddick is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

With lefty Jaime Garcia due up for Atlanta, Reddick will head to the bench, marking his second absence of May. His exposure to left-handed pitching should remain limited, but Reddick is doing enough in his platoon role to be worthwhile in a lot of mixed formats. He seems to be fairly well locked into the two-hole against right-handed pitching.

Reddick went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's 8-3 win over the Mets. He's hit safely in six of the last seven games, a stretch that includes three homers and seven RBI.

EDGE Analysis

Hitting second in front of the dangerous Jose Altuve is a cushy spot for Reddick, who will get pitches to hit. He should also score plenty of runs from that spot. In 16 of the 32 games he's played, Reddick has batted second and scored 15 runs. In the other 16 games played, he's crossed the plate just twice.

Reddick is batting first and playing right field Thursday against the Rangers, Julia Morales of ROOT Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reddick planted a two-run home run and sacrificed another run in through the air Wednesday and will occupy the top spot in the Astros' order with George Springer getting a day of rest. Reddick carries more DFS allure Thursday, especially since he's facing right-hander A.J. Griffin.

Reddick went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a sacrifice fly in Wednesday's win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

The homer was his first since April 19; Reddick hit just .216/.268/.243 over 37 at-bats in the interim. His low strikeout rate and occasional bursts of power make Reddick an annual fantasy tease, but his platoon splits, lack of consistency and injury-prone nature have conspired to make him fool's gold more often than not. He's mostly a consideration in AL-only and deep mixed formats.

Reddick is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Per usual, Reddick will head to the bench for a night off with southpaw Cole Hamels taking the ball for Texas. George Springer will slide over to right field to fill the void, while Jake Marisnick hops into the lineup to fill out the outfield.

Reddick went 2-for-5 with three RBI in Tuesday's win over Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

His two-run single in the fourth gave the Astros a lead they'd never relinquish, and Reddick added on an RBI single in the ninth for insurance. The oft-injured outfielder is now hitting a solid .293, albeit with an uncharacteristically high .333 BABIP and a lack of power -- he has just a single homer in 58 at-bats. That's concerning, as Reddick is coming off a 2016 campaign that saw his power diminish significantly (10 homers in 115 games).

Reddick will start in right field and man the leadoff spot in Sunday's game against the Rays, Julia Morales of Root Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

George Springer will be given the day off in the series finale after exiting Saturday's loss in the fifth inning with left hamstring discomfort, opening up a spot at the top of the order for Reddick, who has usually settled in the two hole. Springer is being viewed as day-to-day, so unless the injury lingers longer than expected and forces him to the disabled list, don't expect Reddick to serve as the Astros' table setter for long.

Reddick is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

With lefty Blake Snell on the hill for the Rays, the Astros will counter with an all-right-handed lineup. Reddick will cede his spot in right field to Jake Marisnick. That said, Reddick has been swinging such a hot bat to start the season that he should be back in the lineup for Sunday's series finale.

Reddick is getting a scheduled day off Thursday against the Angels, the Houston Chronicle's Jake Kaplan reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was a little surprising to see him out of the lineup against a righty, but he happens to be hitting .125 with zero extra-base hits in 16 career at-bats against Matt Shoemaker, so that is the explanation for his absence. Look for him to be back in the lineup Friday in Tampa Bay against righty Alex Cobb.
