Drafted: 2006 June Amateur Draft - Round: 17, Pick: 27, Overall: 523, Team: Boston Red Sox

RotoWire News: Reddick, who will be Houston's primary starter in right field this season, will play in left field for between five and 10 games over the rest of spring training, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. He started in left field and played seven innings in Saturday's game against the Mets. (3/5/2017)

Profile: Last year was somewhat of a microcosm if Josh Reddick's entire career. From a per plate appearance standpoint, Reddick was able to help in a number of areas including power, average, and speed, but his health was an issue. Reddick has only amassed 500+ plate appearances twice in his career, which obviously limits his ability to help a team win a fantasy title. On top of his injury history, he was basically useless against left-handed pitching with a line of .155/.215/.155. He has fared better than that against lefties for his career, but still holds just a 78 wRC+ against southpaws. Now in Houston, Reddick will be back in a platoon role and will be difficult to trust in standard formats. He will have more usefulness in leagues that offer daily lineup changes than weekly, and ones with deeper benches that can allow for platoon bats to be stashed. The Astro lineup will likely be very good and I envision Reddick bouncing between being owned and on waivers in most standard formats throughout the year. Look to add him in deeper leagues or ones with lineup flexibility, and only do so if he will not cost you much. A good thing about owning types like Reddick is that they are usually cheap and provide good value if utilized properly. 

The Quick Opinion: Reddick has moved to a great lineup in Houston but has health risks and will be in a platoon. This limits his standard league appeal, but he should be a target in deeper leagues or in leagues that have deep benches to best utilize platoon players.
