After the session, Anderson told our A's Insider that he felt he was close to ready. Anderson, 24, struck out a season-high seven batters in his last rehab start. In six rehab games (five with Sacramento, one with Stockton) he has a 4.26 ERA in 25 13 innings pitched. He has 18 strikeouts and five walks.We'll have more on this story as it develops on Comcast SportsNet and CSNBayArea.com, and follow @KLongworthCSN and @CaseyPrattCSN for up to the second A's news.
