A’s LHP Anderson has elbow surgery, out for season

OAKLAND, CALIF. (AP) - The Oakland Athletics say left-handed pitcher Brett Anderson will miss the rest of the season after having reconstructive surgery on his elbow.

The A's said Anderson had surgery Thursday. Dr. James Andrews performed the operation to rebuild the ulnar collateral ligament.

Anderson was 3-6 with a 4.00 ERA in 13 starts this season. He went on the 15-day disabled list on June 7 because of elbow soreness.

The 23-year-old pitcher originally had a platelet rich plasma injection in his elbow and was going to see whether rehabilitation could help him. After an evaluation period, it was decided that Anderson needed surgery.

Anderson was 7-6 with a 2.80 ERA in 19 starts last year.
