From Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle comes word that A’s left-hander Brett Anderson made it through a 45-pitch simulated game on Monday without feeling any lingering discomfort in his elbow and has been cleared to begin a rehab assignment Saturday night at High-A Stockton.

Anderson underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery a little over one year ago. He’s likely to make between four and five rehab appearances before returning to Oakland’s starting rotation.

The 24-year-old has a 3.66 career ERA and 1.27 career WHIP in 62 major league outings, spanning 371 total innings. He is under contractual control with the Athletics through the 2015 season.

    Hopefully, all goes well with his rehab assignment. Anderson’s return will make the best pitching staff in the AL (in terms of ERA) even better.
