Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Athletics | Brett Anderson pushed back

Oakland Athletics SP Brett Anderson (ankle) will not come off the disabled list Friday, May 17, as the team had hoped. Anderson still has soreness in his right ankle and won't pitch again until the pain goes away. Anderson hasn't been feeling pain in his ankle while pitching, but it bothers him when fielding and in between his starts. The team will be cautious and give him time.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson has developed a reputation as an extremely slow healer, so this shouldn't come as a huge shock to those holding onto him in mixed leagues. You'll have to sit tight, maybe for another week. When he's healthy, though, and pitching like he can, he should be owned in most formats.
