The two teams had discussions about Anderson yesterday, but Rosenthal hears that they were unable to find a match on a deal. Talks are unlikely to be revived, but the Athletics should find plenty of interest at next week’s Winter Meetings in Orlando. The Blue Jays, Royals, Indians, Twins, Mariners, and Yankees are among the other teams who have reportedly inquired on Anderson thus far.
Injuries have limited Anderson to just 43 starts and 11 relief appearances at the major league level dating back to 2010, but he doesn’t turn 26 until February and has shown significant potential in the past. He’s due $8 million next season while his contract includes a $12 million option for 2015.
