Anderson (3-5) suffered the loss Thursday night against the Orioles, allowing four earned runs, seven hits and one walk while striking out two over 3.1 innings. Anderson made his first start after a trip to the disabled list, and he only managed to throw 59 pitches in the short outing. All seven of the hits he allowed were singles, and he yielded a pair of runs in the first and fourth frames. His ERA now sits at 4.35 for the season, and he'll look to bounce back in his next scheduled start Wednesday against the Angels.
Anderson (forearm) was activated from the 10-day disabled list ahead of his scheduled start against the Orioles on Thursday. Anderson is set to rejoin the rotation after spending a little more than two weeks on the shelf with a forearm strain. The veteran southpaw will look to pick up where he left off prior to suffering the injury, as he owns an impressive 2.83 ERA and 0.90 WHIP through seven second-half starts.
Anderson (forearm) is listed as the starter Thursday against the Orioles, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports. Anderson hit the disabled list in late August with a left forearm strain. If he's indeed able to return Thursday, he'll wind up missing just over two weeks. He was able to throw 45 pitches in a simulated game Sunday without setbacks.
Anderson (forearm) got through a 45-pitch simulated game without setbacks Saturday, Michael Wagaman of MLB.com reports. The veteran southpaw threw 15 pitches per inning as planned and felt good immediately afterward. Manager Bob Melvin indicated the process was certainly a step in the right direction but added how Anderson felt Sunday would largely determine whether he'd be activated during the team's upcoming road trip.
Anderson (forearm) will throw three 15-pitch innings in a simulated game Saturday, Michael Wagaman of MLB.com reports. The veteran lefty is shooting to rejoin the starting rotation at some point over the Athletics' upcoming six-day road trip that consists of stops in Baltimore and Tampa. Anderson got through a bullpen session Wednesday free of setbacks, and Saturday's projected 45-pitch workload could be the final step before he's deemed ready for activation.
