Forearm strain puts A's ace Brett Anderson on DL

Apr 27, 2010, 4:40 PM EDT

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the A’s will place Brett Anderson on the disabled list with a strained forearm. Anderson left his Saturday start after just 80 pitches because of tightness in his elbow and forearm.
He initially deemed it merely cramping and there’s no indication that the A’s feel it’s a serious problem, but he’s headed for an MRI exam to make sure and in the meantime obviously being cautious with the 22-year-old ace is smart.
After emerging as one of the best young left-handers in baseball as a rookie last year Anderson inked a long-term contract earlier this month that could keep him in Oakland through 2016 and began the season with a 2.25 ERA and 17/4 K/BB ratio in 23 innings. Hopefully he’ll just miss a few starts while the surprising A’s try to stay atop the AL West without him.
