Brett Anderson exits start with apparent neck injury
Athletics pitcher Brett Anderson exited Monday night’s start against the Indians in the sixth inning with an apparent neck injury, The Athletic’s Julian McWilliams reports. Anderson had ducked to avoid a wayward bat in the previous inning.
Anderson limited the Indians to a run on four hits with no walks and one strikeout across 5 1/3 innings. The oft-injured lefty now holds a 4.14 ERA and a 28/20 K/BB ratio in 54 1/3 innings on the year.
Anderson rejoined Oakland in February, signing a one-year, $1.5 million contract. The A’s should provide an update on Anderson’s status later tonight.
