OAKLAND -- Josh Reddick remains confident that his stint on the disabled list will take no more than the 15 days allotted as he recovers from a right wrist injury for the second time this season.

The A's right fielder received a cortisone shot on Wednesday and said he hasn't felt soreness in the past day and a half. He is eligible to return from the DL on Sept. 10.

While he's yet to pick up a bat, he hopes to take batting practice later in the week, assuming there are no complications with the healing process.

Coco Crisp received a cortisone shot to heal a similar injury in his left wrist, though the severity didn't require a DL stint. The center fielder has since returned to hit six home runs in the past 11 games, including a leadoff shot Sunday against the Rays.

"Hopefully they put in mine what they put in Coco's and I can go out there and do what he's doing," Reddick said.
