A's say Anderson has stress fracture in right foot
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Athletics say left-hander and opening day starter Brett Anderson has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his right foot that will require further rest and time on the disabled list.
Anderson underwent CT and bone scans during Thursday's off day, the team said. Anderson, who is 1-4 with a 6.21 ERA in six outings and five starts, is scheduled to be re-examined in four weeks.
Manager Bob Melvin had said Wednesday that Anderson was still experiencing soreness in his sprained right ankle, including after pitcher fielding practice Tuesday.
Also Friday, ahead of the opener of a weekend series with Kansas City, the A's selected the contract of lefty non-roster invitee pitcher Hideki Okajima from Triple-A Sacramento and designated struggling right-handed reliever Chris Resop for assignment.
