The bad news keeps on coming for Athletics’ left-hander Brett Anderson.
According to Jane Lee of MLB.com, Athletics manager Bob Melvin said yesterday that Anderson will remain in a walking boot for another four weeks after a scan of his right foot did not show enough healing. The 25-year-old won’t be reevaluated until the All-Star break, so the setback likely pushes his return until around late August at the earliest.
Anderson originally landed on the disabled list on May 1 with a sprained right ankle, but he suffered a stress fracture of the navicular bone in his right foot while he was out on a minor league rehab assignment. It wasn’t too long ago that he was considered one of the most promising young left-handers in the game, but injuries have limited him to a total of 259 2/3 innings at the major league level since his rookie season in 2009.
