Brett Anderson doesn’t know when he’ll be able to throw again after receiving word that he has tendinitis in his left elbow, but he definitely thought that things could have been worse. As of now, surgery isn’t on the table.
“Anytime there’s something in your elbow or near your elbow, it’s kind of a little bit worrisome,” Anderson said before tonight’s game. “But with the diagnosis I got today, hopefully it works out in the end.”
I’ll have more reaction from Anderson in tomorrow’s paper, but I just wanted to let everyone know that Anderson seems to be taking this in stride. He’s dealt with this before and just feels he may have to be a bit more cautious this time around. Whether that means another month off the roster remains to be seen. But the injury, right now, does not appear to be season-ending.
