Anderson will throw two innings of a simulated game Monday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Anderson tossed a 50-pitch bullpen session Thursday but still has a way to go before potentially joining the Dodgers. Even when healthy, it's unclear what role Anderson would have with the team given Los Angeles' depth in the starting rotation. The veteran hurler is hoping to return in mid-August, but a clearer timetable should form as he closes in on a return.
Anderson (back) threw a 50-pitch bullpen session Friday, J.P. Hoornstra of Southern California News Group reports. After throwing his first bullpen session since undergoing back surgery in March, Anderson threw a second one Friday, this one 50 pitches. He said "it went well" which is obviously good news as the 28-year-old seems to be progressing well. He's likely still at least a month away from a return to the majors but appears on the right track.
Anderson (back) could be ready to return to the Dodgers sometime in mid-August, per manager Dave Roberts, Andy McCullough of the LA Times reports. Anderson threw a bullpen session Tuesday for the first time since undergoing back surgery in early March, and he was spotted playing catch on the field Wednesday morning. The Dodgers haven't offered a specific return date, but the team is optimistic that Anderson can be back in mid-August if he continues to progress as expected.
Anderson (back) will throw his first bullpen session since his surgery tomorrow, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Anderson is still well away from making his return, as his back surgery from early March was expected to keep him out through August. Still, his return to throwing is a good sign that he'll be able to make it back to the mound this season.
Anderson (back) is still unable to throw a baseball, J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports. It's not particularly surprising that Anderson is unable to throw just over seven weeks removed from back surgery, but the report does provide an update on his status. He was given a 3-to-5 month recovery period following his procedure, and remains on track to return at some point this summer.
