Athletics manager Bob Melvin hasn't ruled out Brett Anderson (oblique) as an option to start a potential Wild Card game Friday.

Anderson's threw a 50-pitch bullpen session Monday and didn't have any issues with his ailing right oblique. Since he hasn't appeared in a game since September 19, it remains to be seen if Melvin would feel comfortable enough giving him the ball in a do-or-die game. But, it can't hurt to have the lefty as an option.
