The Oakland A's announced on Friday that left-hander Brett Anderson, who has not pitched since April 29, has a stress fracture in his right foot. He will be re-evaluated in four weeks, and the San Francisco Chronicle reports that means he probably won't be ready to pitch for the A's for about two months. Anderson is 1-4 with a 6.21 earned-run average this season. Dan Straily has taken Anderson's spot in the rotation, but he has a 7.27 ERA. The A's called up reliever Hideki Okajima from Triple-A Sacramento and designed right-hander Chris Resop for assignment.
