      Marlins' Nick Anderson: Tagged with second loss

      Nick Anderson (1-2) was saddled with the loss Friday against the Nationals, getting charged with two runs after walking two batters and striking out one in an inning of relief.He replaced Adam Conley in the seventh and induced an inning-ending double play and then fanned Trea Turner to begin the eighth, but Anderson got the hook after walking the next two batters and had to watch them trot home after Juan Soto turned around a 100-mph fastball from Tayron Guerrero for a three-run homer. Anderson has been feast or famine since emerging as another high-octane relief option for the Miami Marlins -- eight of his last 11 appearances have been scoreless ones, but he's been tagged with 10 runs in the other three, leaving him with a 5.57 ERA despite an impressive 39:10 K:BB over 21 innings this year.

      Marlins' Nick Anderson: Picks up loss in brutal appearance

      Nick Anderson was charged with the loss after serving up five runs on four hits and a walk while striking out two over 1.2 innings in relief Saturday against the Braves.With a 2.08 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 52.9 K% coming into the weekend, Anderson had come out of nowhere to emerge as a top-flight middle reliever during the early portion of the season. He displayed few signs of dominance Saturday, however, with Ozzie Albies' grand slam representing the brunt of the damage done against the ace setup man. One brutal outing won't completely undo the good work Anderson previously provided, but it may prompt fantasy managers to proceed more cautiously about locking him into weekly lineups moving forward.

      Marlins' Nick Anderson: Picks up first hold

      Nick Anderson struck out the side but gave up a solo home run in an inning of relief Friday to record his first hold of the season.Brian Dozier ripped a first-pitch fastball down the left-field line to make it a 3-2 game, but otherwise Anderson remained dominant. The right-hander has worked his way into the late-inning mix for Miami with a 2.79 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and an eye-popping 20:2 K:BB through 9.2 innings, but Friday's homer was the second he's given up, continuing an issue that impacted his Triple-A campaign last year (1.2 HR/9). He remains an intriguing saves stash given the unsettled nature of the Miami Marlins' bullpen, but for now Anderson's fantasy value is restricted to formats in which high-K relievers are worth roster spots.

      Marlins' Nick Anderson: Keeps racking up Ks

      Nick Anderson gave up a hit and a walk while striking out two in a scoreless inning of relief during Sunday's extra-innings loss to the Phillies.The 28-year-old has been very impressive in his first taste of the majors, posting a 1.17 ERA and eye-popping 16:2 K:BB through 7.2 innings. Anderson is still being restricted to low-leverage spots -- he was the sixth reliever Don Mattingly turned to in Sunday's 14-inning affair -- but the unheralded right-hander is averaging 95.5 mph with his fastball, and if he keeps blowing hitters away, he'll gain a more prominent role in the Miami bullpen quickly.

      Marlins' Nick Anderson: Breaks camp with big club

      Nick Anderson has secured a spot in the Miami bullpen to begin the regular season, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.The right-hander earned his first ticket to the big leagues after limiting opposing hitters to a .179 average over eight spring innings while striking out 10 and walking none. Anderson has consistently posted elevated strikeout rates throughout his minor-league career, but he'll need to find success in lower-leverage spots initially before the Miami Marlins hand him any sort of meaningful role out of the bullpen.
