Anderson (13-9) allowed three hits and one walk while striking out three over five scoreless innings in a win over the Mariners on Saturday.
Anderson put up zeros and the bullpen did as well, with rookie Jesus Luzardo ultimately closing out a 1-0 victory. The lefty ends the regular season having allowed more than three earned runs in just one of his final 10 starts. He brought his ERA under 4.00 for the season and it looks like Anderson may get a start in the ALDS if the A's are able to advance past next Wednesday's American League Wild Card Game.
Anderson did not factor into the decision against Kansas City on Tuesday, hurling five innings and giving up one run on five hits and no walks while striking out two.
Anderson made only 66 pitches, 40 of which were strikes, but was pulled after five frames for his third straight start. The strategy -- likely precipitated by Anderson's 5.13 ERA after the fifth inning this season -- has yielded mostly positive results, as Oakland has won each of the southpaw's last three starts while he has surrendered six earned runs over 15 innings. Anderson now holds a 4.00 ERA and 1.32 WHIP this season and is next scheduled to face the Angels in Los Angeles on Sept. 25.

Two innings later, Anderson allowed a two-run homer to Mike Trout, before again being tagged by Upton for an RBI single to end his outing. The effort marked the third time in Anderson's past eight starts that he's allowed four or more earned runs, though he turned in quality starts in each of his other five appearances. For the season, Anderson has maintained a respectable 4.19 ERA and 1.32 WHIP across 161 innings. He's scheduled to make his next start Wednesday at Houston.

Chris Bassitt had initially been in line to start Thursday, but he'll instead have his turn pushed back to Saturday's game against Detroit after he left the team Wednesday following the birth of his daughter, Landry. Since the Athletics recently added another starter to their rotation in Sean Manaea, Anderson will be taking the hill on five days' rest and won't be facing any restrictions with his pitch count.

He'll carry a 4.08 ERA into Friday's tough matchup against the Yankees in New York.
Anderson (hand) is expected to make his next scheduled start Sunday against the Giants after leaving last Sunday's start against the Astros with a blister, the Associated Press reports.

Still, he's been pitching well lately, as this was his seventh quality start in his last eight trips to the mound.

Anderson (finger) was reinstated from the paternity list ahead of his scheduled start against the Rangers on Thursday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
As expected, Anderson is back with the Athletics ahead of Thursday's series opener after spending the past three days on the paternity list. The southpaw dealt with a fingernail issue during his previous start but doesn't believe that will be an issue Thursday. In a pair of starts since the All-Star break, Anderson owns a 3.55 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 5:2 K:BB in 12.2 innings. Tanner Anderson was sent to the minors in a corresponding move.
The Athletics placed Anderson (finger) on the paternity list Monday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
The Athletics recalled outfielder Nick Martini from Triple-A Las Vegas as a replacement on the active roster for Anderson, who will be able to spend up to three days away from the team. Anderson isn't scheduled to make his next start until Thursday against the Rangers, so his placement on the paternity list shouldn't impact his availability for that contest. Instead, the lefty will have to prove the fingernail issue he dealt with on his pitching hand during his previous outing against the Twins over the weekend isn't an issue before the Athletics lock him in for Thursday's start.
Anderson clarified after Saturday's game that he was battling a fingernail issue, though he doesn't believe it will impact his next start, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
