MLB.com: Right oblique strain for A’s [Brett] Anderson after tumble

A’s lefty Brett Anderson threw just 48 pitches in his start against the Tigers on Wednesday before exiting with one out in the third because of a right oblique strain.

It’s a tough blow for the A’s, considering oblique injuries typically call for at least two weeks of rest and often more. Anderson could potentially be done for the regular season, though it’s unclear the severity of the injury.

The 24-year-old southpaw fell to the ground while throwing a 2-2 pitch to Delmon Young, departing the game with the bases loaded having already given up two runs in the frame.

Yep, they waited just to the point where I really bought in before starting the late fade out of the postseason.

Balls.

Well before he left the game, the A's radio guys were saying he didn't "look right." They noted his legs mechanics in particular, that his landing spot was off.

Guess they were right...

It's great that we have the best pitcher in the AL. It's less great that he's always injured. :(

Apparently he was already feeling pain in the 2nd inning and tried to pitch through it. We're now WC2 and dropping.

#7 - Here's how this could be good:

1) Blackley takes Straily's start on Saturday and wins pitching well
2) Straily pitches Monday and gets shelled but the A's win anyway
3) Anderson's MRI comes back almost negative and he'll only miss 1 start.
4) A's realize Blackley's better than Straily and keep Travis in the rotation
5) Anderson takes Straily's spot and is in line to pitch in the WC game.

If the A's can manage to go 5-9 the rest of the way, the Angels have to go 9-4 to pass them.

6 at home to end the season against Seattle and a Texas team that probably will have clinched. If Texas hasn't clinched by that point you are probably in incredibly good shape.

Nice to see Blevins come in for that shut-down inning.

Looks like the A's are going to get one out of 3 which is good considering the way the last 2 games went.
