The Indians optioned Anderson to Triple-A Columbus on Saturday.

Anderson's demotion leaves the Indians with 44 players left at their big-league camp. The right-hander has mostly worked as a starter since beginning his professional career in 2011, but the Tribe's stacked major-league rotation limited Anderson to competing for a bullpen role during training camp. He could have a spot reserved for him in the Triple-A rotation and may rank as one of the Indians' top options when a spot starter is needed in 2019.
