Anderson (neck) is listed as the probable starter for Sunday's game against the Mariners, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. He was diagnosed with a cervical strain after exiting Monday's game with a neck injury. It would not have been surprising to see him land on the injured list, especially given his track record, but he told Slusser that the extra day off before his next start will help. Anderson has a 3.86 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 10 strikeouts in 23.1 innings over four May starts.
Anderson left Monday night's game against the Indians with a cervical strain, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Anderson exited Monday night's game against the Indians with an apparent neck injury, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. He left in line for the victory, allowing one run on four hits and striking out one over 5.1 innings. Anderson looked to suffer the injury earlier in the contest while trying to avoid a broken bat, though he managed to stay in the game until the sixth inning before leaving with the team trainer. The extent of the lefty's injury is unknown at this time.
Anderson (4-3) took the loss against Seattle on Tuesday, tossing six innings and giving up four runs on six hits and one walk while striking out five. The lefty was victimized by three long balls against the homer-happy Mariners. On a positive note, Anderson's five strikeouts were a season high and he made it through six innings for his third straight outing. He'll head to Cleveland to face the Indians in his next start Monday.
Anderson didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 5-4 extra-innings win over the Reds, giving up four runs on five hits and five walks over six innings. He failed to strike out a batter. The veteran southpaw was the opposite of dominant, managing only four swinging strikes among his 96 pitches (54 total strikes), but after a four-run second inning Anderson was able to keep Cincy off the board. He'll take a 4.19 ERA and 22:19 K:BB through 43 frames into his next start Monday in Seattle.
