The Oakland A's placed left-hander Brett Anderson on the 15-day disabled list Friday with what manager Bob Geren called "tendinitis" of his pitching elbow.
"He got a contrast MRI today and basically that's what it showed. He's going to be shut down from throwing until he's symptom free and then he'll start back up again," Geren said.
"I think the news from the doctors is relatively good news," Geren said. "When you go and you have a problem and you get it checked out and get the news we got, then you've got to say that's positive."
