Oakland Athletics left-handed pitcher Brett Anderson has a navicular stress fracture in his right foot and will be reevaluated next month, the Athletics announced on Friday. Anderson underwent a CT scan on Thursday which revealed the stress fracture.

The 25-year-old southpaw, who is currently on the 15-day disabled list with sprained right ankle, was hoping to return to the rotation on Friday but will need more time to heal from the stress fracture.

Manager Bob Melvin said Wednesday that Anderson was still experiencing soreness in his right ankle after pitcher's fielding practice.

Anderson is 1-4 with a 6.21 ERA while striking out 29 batters this season for Oakland. Anderson missed most of last season after recovering from Tommy John Surgery in 2011.
