Athletics | Brett Anderson to begin rehab assignment

Oakland Athletics P Brett Anderson (foot) will pitch two innings in relief for Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, Aug. 17, manager Bob Melvin announced. It'll be his first game action since April 29. As previously reported, Anderson may return to the A's as a reliever; Melvin indicated the possibility because it would "get him back quicker."

Fantasy Tip: Anderson probably won't have fantasy value for the rest of this season, but the A's could always stretch him out a bit in September, in time for the postseason. Oakland is gearing up for a playoff run.
