Anderson Starting Tues, Straily gone? WHIR

Postby jruffus1 » Mon Aug 20, 2012 12:09 pm

I am in a keeper league and just read that Brett Anderson will make his season debut on Tuesday against the Twins. Straily was supposed to start that game, but now he's obviously not. Does this likely mean he will be sent down? I am trying to figure out whether I should drop him or not...

There will have to be a corresponding transaction for when they activate Anderson. I imagine that it means that Straily is going to get bumped, but that is pure speculation. I don't believe that anyone outside of the A's front office knows the answer just yet.

There has been a lot of speculation that Jarrod Parker could be the one losing the spot. It's either Straily or Parker, and I'm thinking it should be Parker since he is coming off TJ surgery. That's just my opinion though.

Thought I read they were going to a 6-man rotation, but I guess the real answer is there isn't an answer for now...

Help if you can?

They could just bump him back a day and go with a 6 man rotation for now. I think you gotta hold off dropping until something official comes out

Straily was just optioned to triple A. It's being reported that he will return in September once rosters expand but he is not guaranteed a spot in the rotation.
