Oakland Athletics left-handed starting pitcher Brett
Anderson exited his last appearance early due to a sprained ankle, but he told
reporters – including Jane Lee of MLB.com – that he’s “good to go” for his next
scheduled start on Wednesday.
Anderson suffered his ankle injury in the first inning of
Friday’s loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. He’s since thrown an impressive side
session and has gone through running drills to prove his ankle’s since
recovered. Manager Bob Melvin has said the southpaw is on schedule to pitch
While Anderson did admit to being able to “feel it a little
bit” when running, he says that he’s good otherwise. He still has all of today
to continue to rest the ankle, so it doesn’t seem like he’ll be forced to miss
a start after making his early exit.
Anderson and the A’s will take on the Boston Red Sox and Jon
Lester on Wednesday.
