Brett Anderson leaves start vs Blue Jays with injury

TORONTO — Things just keep getting worse for the A’s pitching staff.
One day after Andrew Triggs was pulled in the third inning of his start and sent to Oakland for an MRI with right arm nerve irritation, Brett Anderson was removed even earlier.
Anderson looked to be having trouble getting his arm loose as he was warming up for the bottom of the second inning when trainers came out to check on him. He appeared to complain of some sort of issue with his left shoulder, and after consulting with trainer Nick Paparesta, the two walked off the field and into the clubhouse, with Anderson grabbing at his left shoulder as he placed his glove on top of his head in agony.

Josh Lucas, who arrived early Friday morning in Toronto after getting the call up from Triple-A Nashville, came on in relief of Anderson to begin the bottom of the second.
Anderson has dealt with a number of injuries in the past. It might be two starting pitchers in two consecutive days that are lost for an extended period of time, with Triggs having already been placed on the 10-day disabled list before the start of Friday’s game.
