The Brewers placed Anderson (knee) on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. The lefty exited Monday's start in the second inning with a bone bruise in his right knee that will demand a more extended absence. It's unclear whether Anderson, who's pitched to a 4.69 ERA in 12 starts this season, will require longer than a minimum stay on the IL.
Anderson (2-5) has been diagnosed with a bone bruise on his right knee after exiting Monday's start against the Diamondbacks in the second inning, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. He struck out one while taking the loss, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk across 1.1 innings. Anderson reportedly suffered the injury while hitting in the top half of the inning before the issue worsened when he took the mound for the bottom half. It's very possible that the discomfort he experienced contributed to his shaky second inning, in which he allowed three runs on five hits while recording just one out. While the initial diagnosis appears to signal a minor injury, the veteran left-hander will likely be further evaluated to determine if there's anything more serious going on. Anderson can be considered questionable to make his scheduled start against the Cubs next week.
Anderson exited Tuesday's start against the Diamondbacks with right knee discomfort. Anderson allowed three runs on five hits before being replaced by Trevor Richards with one out in the second inning. He'll be further evaluated before the Brewers determine the severity of the issue and he can be considered questionable to make his next start, which currently lines up to take place next Monday against the Cubs.
Anderson exited his Monday start against the Diamondbacks with one out in the second inning due to an undisclosed issue, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports. He allowed three runs on five hits before being replaced by Trevor Richards. The reason for Anderson's early departure isn't known at this point. Anderson landed on the IL in later April with a hamstring strain and ultimately missed just over two weeks, so it's possible his exit is related to that previous issue. The Brewers will likely provide an update in the near future, with the hope that they won't have to add to the veteran southpaw's lengthy list of trips to the injured list throughout his career.
Anderson didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 2-1 extra-inning loss to the Reds, giving up only one hit and one walk over seven scoreless innings. He struck out nine. Against a Cincinnati offense that has mostly tormented southpaws, Anderson was absolutely brilliant, tossing 55 of 82 pitches for strikes and not allowing a runner past second base. The nine strikeouts were a season high for the veteran hurler -- in fact, he hadn't fanned more than four in any start prior to Tuesday. Unfortunately, neither team scored until the 10th inning, and he wasn't rewarded with a win. It was only Anderson's second quality start of the year, and he'll carry a 4.24 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 30:15 K:BB through 46.2 innings into his next outing.
