ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin said starter Brett Anderson felt better Saturday, one day after he left following the first inning of an 8-3 loss to Tampa Bay with a sprained right ankle.

The left-hander didn't do any on-field work Saturday. Melvin says the status of Anderson's next scheduled start Wednesday at Boston will be evaluated on Sunday.

The Athletics have recalled right-hander Jesse Chavez from Triple-A Sacramento and optioned pitcher Evan Scribner to the Pacific Coast League club.

Scribner threw three innings in relief of Anderson on Friday.

Also, Yoenis Cespedes, on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left hand muscle, swung a fungo bat Saturday. Melvin said the outfielder might hit off a tee Sunday.
