A's pitcher Brett Anderson threw for the first time on Thursday since suffering an oblique injury Sept. 19.

Oakland Athletics starting pitcher Brett Anderson threw for the first time since suffering a right oblique strain a few weeks back, according to CSN Bay Area's Casey Pratt.

Anderson made 35 throws on Thursday, 20 tosses from 60 feet and another 15 from 75 feet. When he finished his throws he spoke with pitching coach Curt Young, noting there were no issues, and signed some autographs and left the field. Anderson suffered the oblique strain during his start against the Detroit Tigers Sept. 19.

Oakland is being careful with Anderson, hoping he can return some point in the playoffs. Anderson won his first four starts after making his return to the rotation after Tommy John surgery left him shelved for over a year.

He is 4-2 with a 2.57 ERA in six starts this year. The A's are currently two games ahead of the Los Angeles Angels and Tampa Bay Rays for the final wild card spot in the American League.
