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.
