Athletics | Brett Anderson to DL, Dan Straily recalled

Oakland Athletics SP Brett Anderson (ankle) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a sprained right ankle. This is his fifth career stint on the DL. The A's have called up SP Dan Straily from Triple-A Sacramento to take Anderson's place on the 25-man roster.

Fantasy Tip: This should allow Anderson to recover fully from an ailment that could have affected him for a while otherwise. Considering his results, minus his relief appearance of 5 1/3 innings on Monday, until this point, he doesn't need something like that. Straily may have mixed league value as a streaming option, despite his rough results on Monday, while Anderson is sidelined. At the New York Yankees may not be terribly promising, but a tilt with the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field could well be.
