KANSAS CITY -- Injured pitcher Brett Anderson made his second rehab start for Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday night, bringing him closer to returning to the big leagues.
Anderson, recovering from Tommy John surgery, hasn't pitched for the A's since June 5 of last season. He picked up a win on Friday for Sacramento, allowing just three hits and striking out four in six shutout innings.
If all goes well, Anderson's return could be right around the corner.
"We'll have to find a spot for him. We'll just see how that goes in the coming days," A's manager Bob Melvin said.
"His last performance was really good is what they said. Velocity, numbers, everything. He pitched very well. He's getting to where he's pitching for results, and that's what you want to see, the intensity of that. We expect him to go out there in the same fashion [Wednesday]."
