The Oakland A’s have placed 22-year old lefty starting pitcher Brett Anderson on the 15-day disabled list with a left forearm strain. Anderson has started 4 games this season for the Athletics and he is 1-1 with a 2.35 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP. He has whiffed 17 batters while only walking 4 in 23 innings pitched so far this year showing just how well he was pitching. Anderson was looking to build on his solid rookie year of 2009 in which he started 30 games and was 11-11 with a 4.06 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP. The A’s hope that Anderson heals soon because he is fast becoming the ace of the starting rotation.
