Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez is on track to slot into the rotation behind SPs Scott Kazmir and Dan Straily, and his anticipated regular season debut would be April 2. "I like it, it's fun. It just gives me more confidence that they have confidence I can do it. I'm going to try to ride that wave of confidence," Sanchez said Tuesday, March 18.
Fantasy Tip: Chavez will be worth a look in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues, but those in mixed formats won't want to bother with him.

Oakland Athletics SPs A.J. Griffin and Dan Straily might win the final two spots in the team's rotation, but they will have competition. SP Drew Pomeranz will be stretched out during spring training, and he is hopeful of winning a rotation spot. SP Tommy Milone is also hopeful of pushing his way into the mix and re-gaining his spot in the rotation. P Josh Lindblom is also expected to be under consideration, although he is likely to begin the season at Triple-A Sacramento.

Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (hamstring) experienced some soreness after playing catch Sunday, June 30, according to manager Bob Melvin. He is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday, July 2, but it is uncertain if he will be able to make his next start Thursday, July 4, against the Chicago Cubs. If he is unable to pitch, Dan Straily or Sonny Gray could be recalled from the minors to make a spot start.

Oakland Athletics SP Brett Anderson (foot) has been diagnosed with a navicular stress fracture in his right foot, and he'll be re-evaluated in four weeks.
Fantasy Tip: At this point, it's probably safe to drop Anderson in most mixed formats. You might be forced to stash him in a DL spot in AL-only leagues. Dan Straily has been struggling in the rotation since Anderson went on the disabled list. Sonny Gray will become a realistic option to replace Straily if he continues to falter.

Oakland Athletics SP Brett Anderson (ankle) will not start for the parent club on Friday, May 17, as the club had originally had hoped. The left-hander's ankle is still too sore.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear when the A's expect him to return to the rotation. Perhaps he'll undergo additional testing to confirm nothing more serious, but if the probably is mostly related to pain tolerance, it seems likely that Anderson would rejoin the A's rotation in the next week or two. Dan Straily seems likely to remain with the club for at least one more start beyond today's.

Oakland Athletics SP Brett Anderson (ankle) said he had no issues with his ankle Sunday, May 12, and he feels he'll be ready to make his next start when he's eligible to come off the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Anderson is eligible to return from the DL later this week, and Dan Straily is expected to be sent down to make room for Anderson in the rotation. Some owners may have already grew tired of Anderson's oft-injured act, so check your waiver wire to see if he's available. If he's healthy, Anderson should improve on his early season results. He's definitely worth owning in deep mixed formats.
