Oakland Athletics starting pitcher Brett Anderson has been dealing with a foot injury that has kept him out of action since April 29. The A’s have been working to get Anderson back on the mound, but the injury has been nagging and he has been unable to overcome the pain. Now, we finally have learned the full extent of how serious the injury is.

Oakland passed along the news on Twitter Friday afternoon:

“I wouldn’t have predicted on Sunday I’d  be in a walking boot on Friday,” Anderson said, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Gate. “It’s disappointing, but I can’t do anything about it. I kind of have to wear it.”

Anderson is expected to be unavailable for two months.

2011 first-round pick Sonny Gray, who has been playing Triple-A Sacramento, could receive a call to take his spot in the rotation.
