Brett Anderson could hit trading block, especially if A's keep Colon
The A's are working from a position of strength with their rotation.
ORLANDO, Fla. -- A's left-hander Brett Anderson, the team's Opening Day starter in 2013, could become available in trade.
Whether Anderson is ultimately traded may depend on whether the A's are able to re-sign Bartolo Colon. Oakland is aiming to make a one-year deal with Colon, who turned out to be the ace of the 2013 team. Team higher-ups plan to meet with Colon's agent Adam Katz here at the GM meetings. Meantime, Anderson's name is being bandied about it.
Anderson dealt with injuries last year and finished the season 1-4 with a 6.04 ERA after dueling with Felix Hernandez on opening Day but ultimately never having the season hoped for. Foot and ankle injuries spoiled his year.
