Ryan Cook Reinstated and Josh Reddick to DL


The Oakland Athletics just announced via Twitter that Ryan Cook has been reinstated, as was expected, and Josh Reddick, who suffered a hyper-extended knee during the Angels series over the weekend, was placed on the 15 day disabled list.

There had been a lot of speculation as to what moves the A’s would make in order to get Ryan Cook reinstated into the lineup.  Some bloggers and reporters had guessed that Luke Gregerson, Eric Sogard or Kyle Blankswould be sent down to AAA Sacramento but now the speculation will have to be delayed.

With Reddick’s visit to the DL set retroactively to June 1st, the A’s have two weeks to make their final decision on how to keep Cook in the lineup. Cook, 2012 All Star relief pitcher, has been on the DL since early May.

*EDIT* Susan Slusser has reported that Brandon Moss is back in the starting lineup tonight against the Yankees.
