Starting Pitchers:

Brett Anderson, A's - Anderson was originally slated to begin his rehab assignment as a reliever, but that changed this week once Bartolo Colon landed on the DL with a groin injury. Now Anderson is being worked as a starter once again, just in case the team needs him to step in to their rotation come September. He's coming off of a foot injury, but it seems like it's always something with Anderson, as he's dealt with ankle, thumb, back, oblique, and elbow issues, and that's only the last two seasons. The last time we actually saw Anderson on major league mound he had a 6.21 ERA (3.59 xFIP) with 29 strikeouts and 15 walks over 29 innings this season. It's difficult to say what to expect, considering he's only pitched 64 innings in the majors, since his Tommy John surgery in 2011. Still, he has enough potential, that those in AL only formats should at minimum keep tabs on him in his rehab assignment. Mixed: No; AL: $2.
