Anderson was recalled by the Indians on Friday, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports. With right-handed reliever Joseph Colon landing on the DL on Friday with a sore pitching shoulder, the Tribe replenished their depth in the bullpen by recalling Anderson. The 25-year-old Anderson has worked primarily as a starter when with the Indians this season, but that was due to injuries to other pieces of the rotation. Although he's likely destined for relief duty during this stint, his track record as a starter should give him value as an innings eater if a starter fails to go deep into an outing. Anderson has a 7.48 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP in 43.1 innings of work with the Indians this season.
Anderson was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Monday, Ohio.com reports. Anderson will head back to Columbus with Kyle Crockett coming up to join the Indians in a corresponding move. The righty Anderson was recalled Sunday but did not appear in the Indians' 6-1 win over the Twins.
Anderson was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Sunday, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports. All but one of Anderson's previous 24 career appearances with the Indians have come in a starting role, but the right-hander is expected to assume bullpen duties this time around. With Danny Salazar (elbow) on track to start Tuesday and all four of the other Indians' rotation members healthy and pitching effectively, Anderson will give the Tribe a long man out of the bullpen after Tommy Hunter (back) was placed on the 15-day DL on Sunday in a corresponding move.
Anderson (elbow) was activated from the disabled list Tuesday. Anderson was placed on the minor league DL in mid-June and will return Tuesday after being shut down for a week following his injury. He had been spending time between Triple-A Columbus and the Indians most of the season before landing on the disables list, posting a 7.48 ERA with a 1.64 WHIP during 43.1 innings in the majors.
Anderson (elbow) will be shut down for 10 days and he won't return to game action for 3-to-4 weeks thereafter, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports. The right-hander landed on the 7-day DL earlier Wednesday due to inflammation, and now there is a clearer picture as to when Anderson can be expected to return. The Indians will take the cautious route with him, shutting him down completely until next weekend. With that amount of downtime, he'll likely need some time to rebuild the strength in his arm via bullpen sessions and eventually a rehab assignment. If Anderson can remain on track during his recovery, he'll likely be back on a big league mound a week or two after the All-Star break.
