7:12pm: According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, the injury is not considered serious. Anderson likened it to a cramp and said that he expects to make his next scheduled start.
6:40pm: A’s youngster Brett Anderson was lifted from Saturday’s game against the Indians after just 80 pitches due to left elbow tightness. The news comes via the Oakland A’s official Twitter feed.
Anderson held the Tribe to three hits and just one earned run before departing. He’s been even better than expected this season and the A’s will hope this elbow issue is just a minor setback to what could be a very special season for the left-handed sophomore.
The 22-year-old Anderson made 30 starts last year in his first major league season, finishing 11-11 with an impressive 1.28 WHIP and 150/45 K/BB ratio in 175 1/3 innings. He inked a $31 million contract extension just about a week ago.
