Anderson went 1-for-4 with a walk, a three-run home run and two runs scored Tuesday against the Padres. Anderson got the Marlins' offense started Tuesday night, slugging his 13th home run of the season in the first inning. He had struggled for much of July prior to this performance, entering the night with just two hits in 17 at-bats. He now owns a .248/.333/.431 line across 371 plate appearances for the season.
Anderson went 1-for-3 with a walk, a two-run homer and a second run scored in Friday's win over the Mets. Making his first start of July after being restricted to pinch-hitting duties prior to the All-Star break due to a bruised elbow, Anderson took Robert Gsellman deep in the sixth inning for his 12th home run of the year, establishing a new career high for the 26-year-old. Anderson's .252/.338/.430 slash line on the season remains mediocre, but he should continue to see consistent at-bats for a Marlins squad that lacks viable alternatives.
Anderson (elbow) is back in the lineup Friday against the Mets, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports. A bruised elbow kept Anderson out of the lineup for the final five games of the first half, though he appeared off the bench in each one. He'll hit cleanup and play third base Friday.
Anderson (elbow) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Anderson will be held out of the lineup for the fifth straight game after suffering a right elbow bruise in Tuesday's contest. The fact the 25-year-old hasn't been placed on the injured list gives the indication it's a minor issue, especially since he's appeared as a pinch hitter multiple times.
Anderson (elbow) remains out of the lineup for Saturday's game against Atlanta, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. A bruised elbow has kept Anderson out of the lineup since he left Tuesday's game against the Nationals with the injury, though he's appeared off the bench in every game since. He'll sit for at least one more game, with Neil Walker starting at third base and Yadiel Rivera in right field.
