Brett Anderson may not have to miss any time in the A's rotation.

The A's starter left Friday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays in the first inning with a sprained right ankle, but should be ready to go Wednesday according to manager Bob Melvin after throwing a "very aggresive side" writes Jane Lee of MLB.com.

"Everything is on schedule at this point for him," Melvin said.

Anderson also seems confident in that his ankle will be fine for Wednesday's start.

"I can obviously feel it a little bit when running," Anderson said, "but other than that, it feels good."

Anderson is 1-3 with a 5.95 ERA this season and would be opposite Boston Red Sox left-handed pitcher Jon Lester in Wednesday's series finale.
