Reddick seems like he could hit if given 500 PA some where if not Boston. May as well give him a shot now or at least platoon him if your not going to sign Beltran.


I still believe that Kalish is the guy with more upside. 2011 was a lost year for Kalish, but he is younger, has better tools, and had an amazing 2010. If Kalish had been healthy last year, he likely would already have the right field job.

Reddick seems more like a 4th outfielder to me. I do not like the idea of him starting for a pennant contender.

I don't think the Red Sox see him as a plan A starting Of'er. And they are an org that can afford to have an outstanding 4th OF'er.

I don't see a lot of fantasy appeal either. avg BA (.275ish), 20 HR's, 5 SB's. In a 12-14 tm league he's more the type of player that I pick up to fill a hole instead of a late rd gamble. I like more upside in the late rds.
