A’s dodge bullets after injuries to Josh Reddick, Brett Anderson

X-rays were negative for both outfielder Josh Reddick and starter Brett Anderson after the A’s duo suffered injuries in Sunday’s win over the Astros, CSNBayArea.com’s Casey Pratt reports.

Reddick was hurt when his right wrist slammed into the wall in foul territory as he went after a ball in the fifth inning. He immediately departed, and the fear was that he may have suffered a break. As is, he’s listed as day-to-day with a sprain.

“I was scared,” Reddick said. “I was nervous that something was seriously wrong I lost feeling in the area for quite a while.”

Anderson was hit on his pitching thumb by a comebacker in the second, but he stayed in and ended up getting the win after striking out 10 in six innings. He appears likely to make his next start.

Meanwhile, Jed Lowrie, still somehow uninjured this deep into the season, hit his third homer as part of Oakland’s 9-3 victory.

    I love the fact that sweeping the Astros is not deemed newsworthy, and excluded entirely from the article.

      Nor is Anderson striking out 10 in 6 innings deemed to be impressive, just stated plainly. Even Blake Beavan could probably average a K per inning if he got to face these guys every time.

    Anderson stays injured. I remember when he was suppose to be better than Kershaw, Bumgarner, etc.

      He is.

        Even when healthy…no he isn’t. At least not in regards to Kershaw.

        Brett Anderson is a great pitcher, but he’s not better than Kershaw or Bumgarner. Let’s not get ridiculous here.

        he is better than bumgardner.

    There are probably a few high school teams who could sweep the Astros. Not much of an accomplishment these days

    Reddick seems to have issues stopping before slamming into walls. His beard must be blowing in his eyes.

    Eh, who cares. Why don’t you bash the Brewers some more?

    That’s nothing – A’s fans dodge bullets every game in the parking lot.
