Oakland Athletics left-hander Brett Anderson made an early exit from yesterday’s spring training contest against the Arizona Diamondbacks after taking part in a collision near third base. He’s considered day-to-day after being diagnosed with a strained right trapezius, according to the team. Report from the #Athletics clubhouse is that Brett Anderson left the game with a strained right trapezius — Oakland Athletics (@Athletics) March 10, 2013 The trapezius is in the neck area, as it extends from the neck to the middle of the back. Anderson collided with Arizona’s Adam Eaton at third base in the first inning. He later told reporters that, at that point, his neck “just spazzed up” on him. Still, the injury isn’t something the southpaw is worried about. Considering the injury is on Anderson’s non-throwing side, he could resume throwing from a mound this week. While the strain could keep him from making his next scheduled exhibition start, he could still be in line to take the mound for the A’s on Opening Day.
