A's put Brett Anderson on DL, could miss up to six weeks

The next time Brett Anderson takes the mound for the A's, it could be June.

Anderson has landed on the disabled list and he could miss up to six weeks, per ESPN's Buster Olney. In order to help better determine a timetable for his return, he's scheduled for an MRI, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.

With the exception of one bad five-earned-run outing, he had only allowed one earned run (over 18 innings pitched) in his other three starts.

In his five final starts last year, Anderson finished the season with a 4-1 record and 2.20 ERA and struck out 31 batters in 28.2 innings.

Per Spencer Fordin of MLB.com, the A's also optioned reliever Edwar Ramirez to Triple-A Sacramento and recalled infielder Steve Tolleson and catcher Landon Powell.
