Baltimore Orioles: Which players are a fit for the Orioles?
4 of 6
NAME: Josh Reddick
FORMER TEAM: Oakland Athletics / Los Angeles Dodgers
WHY: Josh Reddick was one of the many free agents who found himself on two teams during the 2016 season. And surprisingly, Reddick performed better in the American League than the National League.
Reddick has some power, hitting 10 home runs while driving in 37 with time split between the Athletics and the Dodgers. While he wouldn’t be the power hitting outfielder the Orioles are looking for, he does *snap* get on base (Yes, that was a Moneyball reference. No, I’m not ashamed I used it).
Reddick’s OBP was a career high .345, which was 12 points higher to his .333 OBP the year prior.
The Orioles need players to get on base and score runs. That’s something Reddick can bring to the table should the Orioles sign him.
