Anderson allowed four runs on seven hits and three walks in 4.2 innings Wednesday versus the Astros. He did not factor in the decision.
The 31-year-old gave up three runs in the second inning and a solo home run to Jose Altuve in the fifth prior to his exit. Anderson escaped additional damage after Casey Sadler was able to finish the fifth without yielding runs in a bases-loaded situation. Wednesday marked Anderson's shortest outing with Seattle. He's made some improvements since he was traded from Pittsburgh, logging a 3.83 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 34:7 K:BB in 44.2 innings across eight starts as a Mariner. He lines up for a home start versus Boston next week.
