Brett Anderson (oblique) is expected to start Game 3 of the ALDS against the Tigers.
Anderson has thrown a couple bullpen sessions without having any issues with his strained right oblique. Scheduled Game 4 starter A.J. Griffin and/or Dan Straily will be on call in case Anderson aggravates the ailment early in the game. The A's are going with Jarrod Parker and Tommy Milone in the first two games.
