 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -Brian Anderson's bid to resume his major league career is over.
A MRI performed Thursday revealed the Tampa Bay Rays left-hander suffered a career-ending elbow injury during the sixth inning of Wednesday's spring training game against the New York Yankees.
The 35-year-old pitcher, who missed the past two seasons following Tommy John surgery, tore the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow for the third time in his career. He also tore the flexor mass muscle, which is on the inside of the elbow, for the second time.
Anderson, 82-83 with a 4.74 ERA in parts of 11 seasons with California, Arizona, Cleveland and Kansas City, last pitched in the majors in 2005 when he made six starts for the Royals, going 1-2 with 6.75 ERA before undergoing elbow surgery.
He signed a minor league contract with the Texas Rangers in 2006, but aggravated the elbow injury and had Tommy John surgery again. The Rays signed him to a minor league deal in January, hoping he might be able to help their bullpen at some point this season.
In 11 postseason appearances with Cleveland and Arizona, Anderson was 2-1 with a 2.43 ERA.
