Anderson (elbow), just activated from the injured list Sunday, fired a scoreless seventh inning during which he allowed a hit and issued a walk in Monday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Anderson had been looking increasingly stronger in his last few rehab appearances before activation, and that momentum carried over Monday. The right-hander gave his previously injured elbow a good test by logging 23 pitches overall. While Anderson's control was a bit rusty -- he got just 11 offerings into the strike zone -- and his fastball averaged just 92.1 mph during the outing as per Adam Berry of, manager Kevin Cash was pleased with what he saw. "It was good to have Nick out there on the mound. He looked the part," Cash said. "He's worked hard to get back to this point. We'll look forward to seeing him again in the next day or two and see how the stuff continues to progress."
