Flushing, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The Oakland Athletics activated outfielder Josh Reddick from the 15-day disabled list prior to Tuesday's game against the New York Mets.

In order to reinstate Reddick, the A's placed first baseman Kyle Blanks on the 15-day DL with a strained left calf.

Reddick was 7-for-16 in a four-game rehab stint with Triple-A Sacramento. A hyperextended right knee put him on the shelf at the beginning of June.

He was batting only .214 with four home runs and 22 RBI over 50 games prior to the injury.

Blanks, acquired from San Diego in May, has hit .333 with two homers and seven RBI in 21 games with the A's.
