Anderson (illness) is scheduled to start Saturday's Cactus League game against the Rangers, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Anderson's turn in the Brewers' spring rotation initially came up Tuesday, but he was scratched ahead of that outing after experiencing flu-like symptoms. The lefty was cleared to resume workouts a day later and is apparently feeling healthy again, so the illness won't derail his bid for an Opening Day starting job.
Anderson returned to the team Wednesday after being scratched from his start the previous day with flu-like symptoms, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The loss of one outing shouldn't do too much damage to Anderson's ability to get ready for Opening Day. It remains to be seen when he'll next get into a Cactus League game.
Anderson was scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday against the Padres due to flu-like symptoms.
The loss of one spring start probably won't significantly impact Anderson's readiness for Opening Day. Shelby Miller will start in his place Tuesday.
Anderson is currently slated to open the season in the Brewers' starting rotation, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Anderson signed a one-year deal with the Brewers after posting a 3.89 ERA over 31 starts with the A's last season, and according to manager Craig Counsell he opens camp safely in the rotation, presumably in the fourth spot behind Brandon Woodruff, Adrian Houser and Josh Lindblom.
Anderson agreed to a one-year contract with the Brewers on Friday.
Anderson will make a base salary of $5 million, with the chance to earn an additional $2 million in incentives, Buster Olney of ESPN reports. The veteran lefty won 13 games with a 3.89 ERA for Oakland last season. He tied his career high by making 31 starts, though he'd made just 33 over the previous three seasons combined, so there's still plenty of injury risk here. He'll also be pitching in a far tougher home park, so his 12.1 percent strikeout rate might stand out as a more notable negative than it was last season.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

The veteran lefty now sports a 4.05 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP and a 61:35 K:BB through 120 innings.
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.
