NEW YORK -- A's lefty Brett Anderson endured a successful bullpen session on Monday afternoon, turning his hyperextended right knee into a non-issue in preparation of his scheduled Wednesday start against the Yankees, which he fully plans on making.
"It went really well," manager Bob Geren said. "He should be good to go, no problems."
The 22-year-old Anderson suffered the mild knee injury when he stepped in a mound hole created by Rangers hurler Tommy Hunter and subsequently fell in the second inning of Friday's 7-3 loss to Texas. Anderson took Saturday off before running and playing catch on Sunday, all of which went well and allowed him to undergo his normal bullpen routine on Monday.
Anderson is 0-2 with a 5.68 ERA in three career starts against the Yankees, but in those outings, he's also posted 7.1 strikeouts per nine innings.
