Athletics bring up C Bryan Anderson, RHP Fernando Rodriguez and OF Billy Burns.

Anderson is doubtful to see much work, but Rodriguez should be added to the bullpen. Burns is another small-ball guy, so he'll fit in just fine with this crew. How much time he sees though is in question.

Scott Kazmir fell to 14-7 after allowing six runs on two hits and four walks with no strikeouts over 1.1 innings against the Angels on Sunday. 

Kazmir managed to get only four outs in today's start and he did not make it out of the second inning. In his 4.1 innings he has allowed 13 runs and has not been the dominant starter he was in the early months of the year. His ERA has inflated to 3.39 and has lost his "must-start" tag. He may receive an extra day of rest because the recent poor performances could be fatigue related.

John Jaso (concussion) is expected to resume baseball activity this week.

This is obviously good news, but Jaso probably will not play a whole lot considering the A's have a lot of good catching options. When he does start he is a good play, especially in OBP leagues.
