MLB Injury News:
Oakland Athletics left-handed starting pitcher Brett
Anderson has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his right foot, the team
The #Athletics announced that LHP Brett Anderson has a navicular stress fracture of his right foot. He will be reevaluated in four weeks.
— Oakland Athletics (@Athletics) May 17, 2013
Susan Slusser of The San Francisco Chronicle speculates that
the news will mean Anderson will be sidelined for roughly two months, assuming
he doesn’t face another setback. This isn’t a safe bet, as Anderson has been
hampered by issues relating to his ankle throughout the 2013 campaign.
Anderson will be shut down four weeks before his stress
fracture is reevaluated. If his ankle doesn’t show improvement by that point,
season-ending surgery could become a real possibility.
While he’s understandably frustrated by the situation, Anderson
is trying to remain as upbeat as possible:
“I wouldn’t have predicted on Sunday I’d be in a
walking boot on Friday,” he said. “It’s disappointing, but I can’t do anything
about it. I kind of have to wear it.”
This is apparently a new injury, as Anderson felt he was
fully recovered from the sprained ankle that sidelined him earlier in the
season. However, the other side of his ailing foot began to hurt Monday when he
was running. The cause of the injury is unknown, but it could have had to do
with his overcompensating for the sprained ankle.
