The 29-year-old outfielder is the last piece of the puzzle in solidifying the outfield for the Astros. Reddick performed well in the American League, and a reunion could lead to even better success moving forward. I don’t wish to look too deeply into Reddick’s stats, as he has a .255 lifetime average in the MLB, posting some of his best years while with the Athletics.
He, like McCann, will be looking to validate his place on the team and will benefit from being surrounded by this group of players. This move does need for either Reddick of Springer to play center field. However, Springer’s talent is capable of handling this task.
The trio of Aoki-Springer-Reddick offers great balance in the lineup and a defensive front that need not be changed so quickly. With Marisnick, Hernandez and Kemp playing backup roles to this trio; the Astros are in great shape in the outfield.
