Athletics' Brett Anderson: Throws five scoreless in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (13-9) allowed three hits and one walk while striking out three over five scoreless innings in a win over the Mariners on Saturday.

Anderson put up zeros and the bullpen did as well, with rookie Jesus Luzardo ultimately closing out a 1-0 victory. The lefty ends the regular season having allowed more than three earned runs in just one of his final 10 starts. He brought his ERA under 4.00 for the season and it looks like Anderson may get a start in the ALDS if the A's are able to advance past next Wednesday's American League Wild Card Game.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Allows one run in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson did not factor into the decision against Kansas City on Tuesday, hurling five innings and giving up one run on five hits and no walks while striking out two.

Anderson made only 66 pitches, 40 of which were strikes, but was pulled after five frames for his third straight start. The strategy -- likely precipitated by Anderson's 5.13 ERA after the fifth inning this season -- has yielded mostly positive results, as Oakland has won each of the southpaw's last three starts while he has surrendered six earned runs over 15 innings. Anderson now holds a 4.00 ERA and 1.32 WHIP this season and is next scheduled to face the Angels in Los Angeles on Sept. 25.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Escapes with 12th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (12-9) picked up the win in Wednesday's 5-3 victory over the Astros, allowing two runs on seven hits and three walks over five innings while striking out four.

After a 1-2-3 first inning, Houston got runners into scoring position in each of the next four frames, but Anderson was able to limit the damage. The veteran lefty will take a 4.07 ERA and 85:48 K:BB through 166 innings into his next start Tuesday, at home against the Royals.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Surrenders five earned runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson allowed five earned runs on nine hits and no walks while striking out four across five innings Thursday against the Angels. He did not factor in the decision.

Anderson struggled with the top of the Angels' order, allowing both Mike Trout and Justin Upton to have big performances against him. The damage began in the first inning when Upton doubled in two runs. Two innings later, Anderson allowed a two-run homer to Mike Trout, before again being tagged by Upton for an RBI single to end his outing. The effort marked the third time in Anderson's past eight starts that he's allowed four or more earned runs, though he turned in quality starts in each of his other five appearances. For the season, Anderson has maintained a respectable 4.19 ERA and 1.32 WHIP across 161 innings. He's scheduled to make his next start Wednesday at Houston.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Moved up to start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson is slated to start Thursday's series finale against the Angels, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

Chris Bassitt had initially been in line to start Thursday, but he'll instead have his turn pushed back to Saturday's game against Detroit after he left the team Wednesday following the birth of his daughter, Landry. Since the Athletics recently added another starter to their rotation in Sean Manaea, Anderson will be taking the hill on five days' rest and won't be facing any restrictions with his pitch count.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Posts win with one strikeout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (11-9) allowed two runs on six hits with two walks and one strikeout across six innings while earning a victory against the Yankees on Friday.

It's hard to win a game while striking out one batter during six innings in today's baseball, but Anderson did just that in this victory and has done that most of the season. However, wins have been hard to come by for Anderson lately, as he is 2-4 with a 4.39 ERA during the second half. Overall, Anderson, who will start next at home against the Tigers on Friday, owns a 4.04 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 77 strikeouts in 156 innings this season.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Lackluster in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson allowed three runs on six hits and three walks over six innings Sunday, striking out two batters in a loss to the Giants. He did not factor into the decision.

Anderson has been pretty mediocre in August, giving up 11 runs over 23 innings (4.30 ERA) with a 12:8 K:BB. He allowed a pair of runs in the second inning before Evan Longoria took him deep for a solo blast in the third, but he managed to settle in after that. He'll carry a 4.08 ERA into Friday's tough matchup against the Yankees in New York.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Next start remains on schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (hand) is expected to make his next scheduled start Sunday against the Giants after leaving last Sunday's start against the Astros with a blister, the Associated Press reports.

The veteran left-hander worked up to 83 pitches versus the Astros before exiting. Anderson is going through his normal pre-start routine this week and therefore remains on schedule for a turn against the Giants that he'd be working on six days rest.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Dealing with blister
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson left Sunday's game against Houston with a blister on his left hand, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Anderson is reportedly dealing with a small blister on his left hand, though manager Doug Melvin doesn't believe the southpaw is in danger of missing his next start, which lines up for Sunday at home against the Giants.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Exits with apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson walked off the mound with the team trainer after suffering an apparent hand injury Sunday against the Astros, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The extent of Anderson's injury is unknown, though he's likely headed for further evaluation. He allowed four runs on seven hits and four walks while fanning three over five innings prior to exiting.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Hit with loss despite strong start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (10-8) took the loss against the Giants on Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on six hits over six innings, striking out four and walking none as the Athletics eventually fell 3-2.

It was a solid outing for the veteran left-hander, but he was unlucky to get outdueled by a dominant Madison Bumgarner and wound up saddled with his eighth loss of the season. Still, he's been pitching well lately, as this was his seventh quality start in his last eight trips to the mound. Anderson now sports a 3.95 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 71:36 K:BB across 139 innings on the season.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Records 10th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (10-7) picked up the win in Tuesday's 11-4 victory over the Cubs, giving up two runs on seven hits and a walk over six innings while striking out three,

The veteran lefty breezed through five scoreless innings before being taken deep by Kris Bryant, but the A's were already up 11-0 at that point. Anderson now has six quality starts in his last seven trips to the mound, and he'll take a 3.99 ERA and 67:36 K:BB through 133 innings into his next outing Aug. 13 in San Francisco.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Charged with loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (9-7) was charged with the loss against the Brewers on Wednesday after surrendering three runs on eight hits with three strikeouts over seven innings.

Anderson allowed a leadoff home run to Lorenzo Cain in the first inning, which proved to be the only long ball of the game. The next run came from an RBI double by Christian Yelich in the third, and the final damage came from an RBI groundout by Mike Moustakas in the fourth. Despite a stronger second half, the 31-year-old will look for his first win since July 5 when he takes on the Cubs in Chicago on Thursday. The southpaw sports a 4.04 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 64:35 K:BB over 127 innings this season.

July 26, 2019 01:24 AM
Athletics' Brett Anderson: Takes loss against Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (9-6) took the loss against the Rangers on Thursday, giving up five earned runs on seven hits over 4.2 innings, striking out four and walking none in an 11-3 defeat for the Athletics.

Anderson had tossed four straight quality starts coming into this contest, but he couldn't keep the streak going, as things got away from him in the fifth inning when the Rangers pummeled him for all five of his earned runs and chased from the contest after 79 pitches. The veteran lefty now sports a 4.05 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP and a 61:35 K:BB through 120 innings.

July 25, 2019 03:24 PM
Athletics' Brett Anderson: Reinstated ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (finger) was reinstated from the paternity list ahead of his scheduled start against the Rangers on Thursday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

As expected, Anderson is back with the Athletics ahead of Thursday's series opener after spending the past three days on the paternity list. The southpaw dealt with a fingernail issue during his previous start but doesn't believe that will be an issue Thursday. In a pair of starts since the All-Star break, Anderson owns a 3.55 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 5:2 K:BB in 12.2 innings. Tanner Anderson was sent to the minors in a corresponding move.

July 22, 2019 02:52 PM
Athletics' Brett Anderson: Lands on paternity list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Athletics placed Anderson (finger) on the paternity list Monday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

The Athletics recalled outfielder Nick Martini from Triple-A Las Vegas as a replacement on the active roster for Anderson, who will be able to spend up to three days away from the team. Anderson isn't scheduled to make his next start until Thursday against the Rangers, so his placement on the paternity list shouldn't impact his availability for that contest. Instead, the lefty will have to prove the fingernail issue he dealt with on his pitching hand during his previous outing against the Twins over the weekend isn't an issue before the Athletics lock him in for Thursday's start.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Optimistic for next start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson clarified after Saturday's game that he was battling a fingernail issue, though he doesn't believe it will impact his next start, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Anderson exited with trainers in the seventh inning due to speculation of a blister. However, he clarified after the game that the problem with his fingernail prevented limited him to only being able to effectively throw his slider. While Anderson is optimistic he'll be able to make his next scheduled start Thursday against Texas, his status will have to be monitored throughout the week.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Exits with blister
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson exited Saturday's contest with a blister on his left middle finger, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Anderson was visited by trainers in the seventh inning after surrendering a solo home run to Miguel Sano. He exited without throwing another pitch and was later diagnosed with a blister. It's unclear if he will be placed on the injured list or if he will have his next start pushed back or can continue on his normal schedule. Prior to exiting the contest, Anderson had allowed three earned runs on four hits and a walk while striking out two. He did not factor in the decision.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Tosses quality start in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson allowed two runs on seven hits and one walk across 6.2 innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Angels. He struck out three.

Anderson scattered baserunners throughout his outing, but 10 groundball outs helped him mitigate the damage. He was scored upon during a brief rally in the second inning before allowing a solo home run as he was removed in the seventh. Anderson has now pieced together three consecutive quality starts and will take a 3.79 ERA into his next turn on the road against the Twins.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Bests Mariners on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (9-5) allowed two runs on five hits over 6.1 innings Friday, striking out four and earning the win in a 5-2 victory over the Mariners.

Anderson wasn't challenged much in the contest, and he didn't issue a free pass for the first time since May 20 versus the Indians. The left-hander's ERA moved to 3.86 with a 1.30 WHIP and 52 strikeouts in 102.2 innings this season. He'll try to win a third consecutive start when he faces the White Sox in his first start after the All-Star break.
