A's place OF Josh Reddick on 15-day DL

CLEVELAND (AP) - The Athletics are running out of healthy outfielders.

Oakland placed outfielder Josh Reddick on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right wrist on Wednesday, where he joined center fielders Coco Crisp (hamstring) and Chris Young (quadriceps).

The A's made the move with Reddick before playing the third game of a four-game series against the Indians, who blanked Oakland 1-0 on Tuesday.

Reddick hurt his wrist colliding with the wall in foul territory while chasing a pop on April 7 at Houston. He missed three games, but the injury was not improving and the A's decided to put him on the DL.

The club also recalled first baseman Daric Barton from Triple-A Sacramento. To clear a spot on the 40-man roster, the A's released left-hander Jordan Norberto.

Reddick is batting just .152 - third lowest in the AL - with one home run and 14 RBIs in 29 games.

Barton was hitting .287 with three home runs and 21 RBIs in 29 games with Sacramento. He also ranked third in the Pacific Coast League with 24 walks. The 27-year-old was with the A's this spring training but was designated for assignment on March 29.

Norberto also began the season with Oakland but was optioned to Sacramento March 29. He appeared in just three games for the River Cats, allowing six runs and walking seven in 1 1-3 innings before being placed on the disabled list April 13 with a strained left elbow.

Norberto was acquired from Arizona at the trading deadline in 2011. He went 4-1 with a 3.37 ERA in 45 appearances over two seasons with the A's.
