Anderson was taken out after pitching just three innings. He is coming off a regular season in which he compiled a 7-4 record, 1.98 ERA and 106 strikeouts in 118 1/3 innings.
Anderson pitched his second scoreless outing for Class A Modesto Monday. He went 0-1 with a 3.18 ERA in seven starts before landing on the DL. The left-hander, who is the team's No. 6 prospect according to MLB.com, is not expected to be out longer than a week.
The left-handed hurler, who is considered the Rockies' sixth-best prospect by MLB.com, is winless in seven starts (0-1), but he's struck out 36 batters in 39 2/3 innings. He's had trouble keeping the baseball in the park at times, allowing six home runs, and he's walked 10 batters.
"I wouldn't say I've been super successful so far," Anderson said, per MLB.com. "I've walked more guys [10 thus far] than I would've liked, and there have been balls that I left up in the zone. There's always time to make adjustments after every outing, and that's what I'm doing. It's still a work in progress."
