  • Chase Anderson: Cut by Detroit

    Detroit released Anderson from his minor-league contract Sunday.

    The Tigers elected to move on from Anderson after he was lit up for three runs on six hits and two walks across 2.2 innings in his lone start for Triple-A Toledo last Friday. Now a free agent, the 34-year-old right-hander will look to catch on elsewhere as organizational starting depth.

  • Tigers' Chase Anderson: Reporting to Triple-A

    The Tigers reassigned Anderson to Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    After signing a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training, Anderson appeared in three Grapefruit League games, giving up three earned runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out two batters over five innings. The 34-year-old will start the year in Triple-A, but due to his big-league experience, he could be one of the first pitchers to get called up if needed. Anderson appeared in 14 games with the Phillies in 2021, nine of which were starts, producing a disappointing 6.75 ERA and 1.48 WHIP while posting a 6.6 K/9, his lowest since 2015.

  • Tigers' Chase Anderson: Fighting for bullpen spot

    Anderson is one of several pitchers still competing to fill out the back end of Detroit's bullpen to begin the regular season, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Woodbery notes that six pitchers (Anderson, Jacob Barnes, Jason Foley, Rony Garcia, Will Vest and Drew Hutchison) are likely competing for five roster spots. Anderson has largely been a starter during his MLB career, but it appears that he won't be in the rotation to begin the year for the Tigers, so he'll likely need to make the team as a long reliever.

  • Tigers' Chase Anderson: Latches on with Detroit

    Anderson signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Monday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    There's no question that Anderson has struggled over his last few seasons, accruing a 7.22 ERA over 33.2 innings during the 2020 campaign and a 6.75 ERA across 48 innings with Philly a season ago, but he was formerly a serviceable starter, posting his best season with Milwaukee in 2017 with a 2.74 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 141.1 frames. The Tigers lack established rotation options behind Eduardo Rodriguez, Tarik Skubal and Casey Mize, so Anderson could realistically break camp in the big-league rotation if he has a strong spring.

  • Rangers' Chase Anderson: Joins Rangers on minors deal

    Anderson signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Tuesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Anderson didn't have to wait long to find a new club after getting released by the Phillies on Sunday. He joins a team that's in desperate need of starting pitching, with Dane Dunning, Mike Foltynewicz and Spencer Howard all on the COVID-19 injured list. The Rangers may prefer to give opportunities to younger players rather than a 33-year-old who owns a 6.94 ERA over the last two seasons, however, so there's no guarantee he joins the major-league roster any time soon.

  • Chase Anderson: Let go by Phillies

    Anderson was released by the Phillies on Sunday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Anderson was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Thursday and has now parted ways with the team. The veteran right-hander struggled as both a starter and reliver this season with a 6.75 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 35:20 K:BB across 48 innings (14 appearances).

  • Phillies' Chase Anderson: Dropped from 40-man roster

    The Phillies designated Anderson for assignment Thursday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

    The well-traveled right-hander will cede his spot on the active roster to Zach Eflin (kneecap), who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Thursday versus the Diamondbacks. Whether working out of the rotation or as a long reliever for Philadelphia, Anderson found little success. Over 48 innings Anderson posted a 6.75 ERA (5.85 FIP) and 1.48 WHIP.

  • Phillies' Chase Anderson: Activated, likely bound for bullpen

    The Phillies reinstated Anderson (triceps) from the 10-day injured list Sunday.

    Anderson spent just over the minimum amount of time on the IL with right triceps tendinitis, but his absence may have been long enough to cost him his spot in the rotation. After Anderson had served as the Phillies' fifth starter prior to going on the shelf, Matt Moore stepped into the rotation in his stead and tossed six no-hit innings in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Reds. Look for Moore to be rewarded with another start during the upcoming week, leaving Anderson to work out of the bullpen for the time being.

  • Phillies' Chase Anderson: Placed on injured list

    Anderson was placed on the 10-day injured list with right triceps tendinitis Saturday, retroactive to Aug. 5.

    Anderson had a rough outing against the Nationals on Wednesday and allowed three home runs in four innings, and he'll miss at least one turn through the rotation after he was diagnosed with a triceps injury. The Phillies will be able to skip his scheduled start early next week since the team has a day off Monday, but they haven't announced who will take his place in the rotation if he misses more than the minimum of 10 days.

  • Phillies' Chase Anderson: Trouble with long ball

    Anderson didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 9-5 win over the Nationals, giving up three runs on three hits -- all solo home runs -- and a walk over four innings. He struck out one.

    The 33-year-old's difficulty keeping the ball in the yard led to an early 3-0 hole for the Phillies, and while Anderson's offense bailed him out, he still exited before he could get credit for a win. With Zach Eflin (knee) potentially close to returning and Ranger Suarez looking good so far as a starter, Anderson's return to the rotation doesn't figure to last long.

  • Phillies' Chase Anderson: Awarded starting nod

    Anderson is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Nationals, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    At least temporarily, Anderson will join the rotation as a replacement for Vince Velasquez, who was moved to the bullpen Saturday after another rocky start. Anderson is unlikely to represent much of an upgrade from Velasquez, as he's been hit hard this season whether working as a starter or a long reliever. The 33-year-old right-hander has submitted a 6.75 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 7.0 K/9 across 44 innings with Philadelphia.

  • Phillies' Chase Anderson: Returns from COVID list

    The Phillies reinstated Anderson from the COVID-19-related injured list Sunday.

    Anderson was placed on the COVID-19-related IL for the second time this season June 10, but he's been healthy for quite some time, as he's made five rehab appearances at Lehigh Valley over the past three weeks. Though he was stretched out for starting duty during his time in the minors, Anderson is expected to fill a long-relief role in his return to Philadelphia.

  • Phillies' Chase Anderson: Rehabbing at Triple-A

    Anderson (COVID-19 list) made his third rehab start for Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday, tossing 65 pitches (40 strikes) while working three innings and surrendering four earned runs on six hits, no walks and six strikeouts.

    Anderson hasn't pitched for the Phillies since May 31 after being placed on the COVID-19-related list on two occasions. The right-hander resumed game action with the Triple-A club nearly a month later, and the Phillies appear to be building him up for starting duty. Given his poor results with the big club earlier this season (7.34 ERA and 1.61 WHIP across 38 innings) and in light of his underwhelming outing Friday, Anderson likely won't warrant much consideration for the big-league rotation once activated. Instead, he'll presumably serve as a long-relief option if the Phillies don't elect to designate him for assignment.

  • Phillies' Chase Anderson: Back on COVID list

    Anderson returned to the COVID-19 injured list Thursday.

    In a confusing turn of events, Anderson landed on the COVID-19 injured list Sunday before being removed Tuesday, only to head back to the list two days later. The short nature of his original stay suggests he was merely exposed to someone with the virus and didn't test positive himself, but it's possible he's since done so. Catcher Rafael Marchan was recalled in a corresponding move.

  • Phillies' Chase Anderson: Returns from COVID list

    The Phillies reinstated Anderson (COVID-19) from the COVID-19 restricted list Tuesday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Anderson appears to have avoided a bout with the virus, as he returns just two days after landing on the COVID-19 list. The righty is back with the Phillies for now, but he may not continue receiving opportunities if he can't improve upon his alarming 7.34 ERA.

  • Phillies' Chase Anderson: Heads to COVID IL

    The Phillies placed Anderson on the COVID-19-related injured list prior to Sunday's game against the Nationals.

    Reliever David Hale was also added to the COVID IL, but the Phillies didn't specify whether the two pitchers were moved to the list due to testing positive for the virus. Since being bounced from the rotation after giving up seven runs in 1.1 innings in a May 16 loss to the Blue Jays, Anderson hasn't fared much better in a low-leverage relief role. In his first three outings out of the bullpen, Anderson has surrendered six earned runs on eight hits and a walk over 5.2 innings.

  • Phillies' Chase Anderson: Bound for bullpen

    Anderson will move to the bullpen, with Spencer Howard set to start in his place Saturday against the Red Sox, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Anderson won an Opening Day rotation spot but did very little to keep it, struggling to a 6.96 ERA and 1.61 WHIP through eight starts. Those numbers look worryingly similar to his 7.22 ERA and 1.63 WHIP from 2020. He'll make way for the Phillies' top pitching prospect for now, but it's possible he's needed in the rotation again soon, as Vince Velasquez's status remains uncertain after getting scratched from his Thursday start due to a numb finger.

  • Phillies' Chase Anderson: Hit hard in loss

    Anderson (2-4) allowed seven runs on eight hits and a walk in 1.1 innings to take the loss against the Blue Jays on Sunday.

    Anderson's outing Sunday got off a rough start as he gave up home runs to Marcus Semien and Bo Bichette to lead off the game. He didn't fare much better in the second inning, as he allowed six consecutive batters to reach base before he was removed. Anderson now has a 6.96 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in 32.1 innings across eight starts in 2021. He lines up to make his next start at home against the Red Sox on Saturday.
