Anderson (elbow) signed a two-year, minor-league contract with Texas on Wednesday. Anderson underwent Tommy John surgery July 22 and is expected to miss most, if not all, of the 2021 season, so the Rangers will spend most of the first year of his contract overseeing his rehab with the hope that he can emerge as a healthy contributor to the bullpen in 2022. Before requiring the elbow procedure this summer, the hard-throwing right-hander made 111 relief appearances with the Angels between the 2018 and 2019 seasons, logging a 4.75 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and an 11.2 K/9.
Anderson (elbow) was non-tendered by the Angels on Wednesday. Considering Anderson had Tommy John surgery in mid-July, he probably won't be ready for game action until August or September, and that's if everything goes smoothly with his recovery. The 28-year-old righty posted a 4.75 ERA in 102.1 innings as a reliever with the Angels from 2018 to 2019.
The Angels placed Anderson (elbow) on the 45-day injured list Thursday. Anderson's move to the IL was merely a formality after he was diagnosed with a torn UCL in his right elbow last week that required season-ending Tommy John surgery. The power reliever won't be ready to contribute for the Angels until late in the second half of the 2021 campaign in a best-case scenario.
Anderson (oblique) was diagnosed with a torn UCL in his right elbow and will undergo Tommy John surgery Wednesday. The 27-year-old was returning from an oblique injury he sustained in February, but he's now been lost for the season. Anderson will also be sidelined for at least the first half of the 2021 campaign.
Anderson (oblique) has resumed throwing off a mound, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Anderson suffered a left oblique strain at the start of spring training and was originally expected to be sidelined to begin the season. With a potential Opening Day now expected to take place no sooner than early July, Anderson appears to be on track to begin the season ready to contribute out of the bullpen.
