Oakland leads the league in ERA and now Opening Day starter Brett Anderson is making major progress in his return from a broken foot.
Anderson, who’s been out since April, threw a 35-pitch bullpen session yesterday and reported no problems. He remains on track to come off the disabled list at some point in August, according to Jane Lee of MLB.com.
Anderson’s career has repeatedly been derailed by major injuries–he hasn’t thrown 100 innings in a season since 2010–but the 25-year-old left-hander has a 3.74 ERA and 340/114 K/BB ratio in 435 innings and would be a likely playoff starter for the A’s if they reach the postseason.
