Athletics LHP Anderson to visit Andrews



CHICAGO (AP) — Oakland A’s starter Brett Anderson will meet with noted orthopedist Dr. James Andrews on Monday.

Anderson was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday and an MRI exam performed by team orthopedist Dr. Jon Dickinson couldn’t identify the injury, so the team wanted a second opinion.

The 23-year-old southpaw had allowed 14 earned runs in 10 1-3 innings over his last two starts, both losses. He is 3-6 with a 4.00 ERA on the season.

Anderson missed all but three starts in May, June and July of last year because of to elbow inflammation.
