• The location of lefty Brett Anderson's second rehab start has been decided. He will pitch in Stockton for the Class A Ports on Thursday, rather than go with the Triple-A River Cats to Colorado Springs.
Not only did travel factor into the decision, but, "I don't know that Colorado Springs is the greatest environment to pitch in, either," manager Bob Melvin said.
Anderson is expected to throw close to 70 pitches, after throwing 49 and allowing two runs on three hits and three walks with two strikeouts in 2 1/3 innings in Sacramento on Sunday.
• Josh Donaldson entered Monday having compiled multiple hits in each of his previous two games. He has 42 multihit games on the season, which are the most by an A's player since Adam Kennedy had 45 in 2009.
