The Oakland Athletics skipped left-handed starting pitcher Brett Anderson's regularly scheduled start on Monday due to the lingering effects of his ankle injury. While the ankle kept him from pitching in last night's contest, Anderson told Jane Lee of MLB.com that he's confident he'll be able to make his next start. Anderson confident he'll still be able to make his next start. Ankle just stiffened up on him. — Jane Lee (@JaneMLB) April 30, 2013 The A's recalled Dan Straily to start last night in place of Anderson. Oakland doesn't expect the southpaw to require a trip to the disabled list, and Anderson believes he'll be back on the mound Sunday when he's slated to take on the New York Yankees. Anderson exited the last start he made due to an ankle injury, as he left the game after logging only one inning due to a sprain. He simply landed on the ankle wrong, but he didn't expect it to be a big deal or cause him to miss a start. The ankle apparently tightened up on Anderson recently, which is why he told Lee he wasn't able to take the mound. It's the second injury of the young season for Anderson, who's also dealt with a strained neck. These ailments have resulted in the 25-year-old getting off to a rocky start to the new campaign, allowing 21 runs on 29 hits and 13 walks over 23 2/3 innings.
