PITTSBURGH -- Lefty Brett Anderson took a step forward in his rehab from a right foot stress fracture Tuesday by throwing from 105 feet back in the Bay Area.

"That's definite progress," said manager Bob Melvin, before adding with a smile, "He's throwing off his feet instead of his knee."

There is no timetable on when Anderson will resume throwing off a mound, but Melvin said the team planned to discuss this upon returning home Thursday.

Should all continue to go well for the injury-plagued Anderson, the A's are hopeful he can return to the rotation as soon as August.
