Reddick called up again as Baldelli hits DL

As it turns out, Josh Reddick's return to the minor leagues will be short lived. According to Tony Massarotti of Boston.com, Reddick is on his way to New York to join the Red Sox for tonight's game against the Yankees; he will be taking the roster spot of outfielder Rocco Baldelli, who will be placed on the 15-day disabled list today with a foot injury. Reddick, who was just reassigned to Triple-A Pawtucket yesterday when Billy Traber was called up, had hit .313/.353/.688 with 3 doubles and a home run in 16 at-bats for Boston. While a player must normally remain in the minor leagues for at least ten days after being sent down, an exception is made if that player is replacing an injured player at the same position. In the minor leagues this year for Double-A Portland, Reddick had been hitting .277/.352/.520 with 13 home runs in 256 at-bats at the time of his first call-up. He had yet to have an at-bat for Pawtucket.
