24-year old lefty starting pitcher Brett Anderson missed most of this season as he was rehabbing from elbow surgery. But, he has been electric in his first two starts this year for the A’s. He is 2-0 with a 0.64 ERA and a 0.57 WHIP so far for the A’s. He gave up only 6 hits and 2 walks in his first 14 innings this year while whiffing 11 batters. Anderson has now pitched in 64 games (all starts) in his first four years with the A’s and he is 23-23 with a 3.55 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP. Anderson’s return came in a nick of time with the A’s duking it out for a playoff spot heading in September.
