Brewers' Brett Anderson: Completes bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (hamstring) completed a bullpen session Tuesday, but he remains without an official return timeline since he has yet to clear running tests, Adam McCalvy of reports.

The left-hander apparently isn't having any issues with the hamstring strain while throwing, but he won't be fully cleared until he passes the running tests. Anderson figures to throw another bullpen session within the next few days and could seemingly rejoin the rotation next week if he's clear of the running issues.

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Plays catch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (hamstring) played catch Tuesday but is still expected to miss more than 10 days, Adam McCalvy of reports.

Anderson was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday due to a strained right hamstring, and he's expected to miss at least two turns through the rotation. Right-hander Zack Godley will start Wednesday's game against the Marlins after his contract was selected by Milwaukee earlier in the day, and he could remain a starter while Anderson is sidelined if he performs well against Miami. A clear timetable for Anderson's return hasn't yet been established.

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Placed on 10-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right hamstring strain Saturday, Adam McCalvy of reports.

Anderson exited Friday's game against the Cubs due to a hamstring issue and has now been diagnosed with a strain. Manager Craig Counsell said Saturday that he isn't sure how much time Anderson will miss, and Counsell hasn't yet decided who will take Anderson's spot in the rotation, McCalvy reports. Phil Bickford was recalled from the alternate training site in a corresponding move.

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Set for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson left his Friday start against the Cubs due to a hamstring issue and was sent for an MRI, Adam McCalvy of reports.

Anderson faced just four batters before exiting with what was originally called right knee discomfort. The issue is evidently in his lower hamstring rather than his knee. Whether or not he'll need to head to the injured list should become clear following the MRI.

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

Anderson left his Friday start against the Cubs with right knee discomfort, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Anderson faced just four batters, retiring only one, before leaving the game. The severity of his injury and his expected return date are not yet clear. Josh Lindblom replaced him in Friday's contest and could be in line to step into the rotation should Anderson require a trip to the injured list.

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Records quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (2-1) allowed no earned runs on six hits and a walk while striking out three over seven innings in Saturday's win over the Pirates.

The lefty was dealing Saturday, never allowing more than one base runner in an inning until the seventh. The 33-year-old threw 61 of his 97 pitches for strikes and has allowed five earned runs in 17 innings of work. Anderson is scheduled for his next start Friday against the Cubs.

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Cruises to easy win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (1-1) allowed one run on five hits and two walks over five innings Sunday, striking out one batter and earning a win over St. Louis.

It wasn't the most impressive outing for Anderson, but with a 7-1 lead after just two innings, he didn't need to do much. The 33-year-old southpaw managed to give up just one run in the second after loading the bases with one out. After that, only one Cardinal made it beyond first base for the rest of his outing. Anderson will carry a 4.50 ERA into Saturday's home game against the Pirates.

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Hit hard in Monday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (0-1) took the loss Monday, giving up four runs on four hits -- including three home runs -- and a walk over five innings as the Brewers fell 5-3 to the Cubs. He struck out four.

The veteran southpaw held the Cubs in check for three frames before getting taken deep by Willson Contreras, Javier Baez and David Bote in the fourth. Anderson has had trouble keeping the ball in the yard in recent seasons when he misses his spots, posting a 1.1 HR/9 since 2018, and he tossed only 43 of 79 pitches for strikes Monday before exiting. He'll look to bounce back in his next scheduled outing Sunday in St. Louis.

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Sews up rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson allowed two earned runs over 5.2 innings in Thursday's exhibition game against the Giants. He gave up five hits and posted a 3:0 K:BB in the contest.

Anderson has allowed 18 hits through 15.1 innings this spring, but he has also walked just two batters and has been credited with only four earned runs. Anderson is not a particularly appealing fantasy option due to his middling ratios and lack of punchouts, but with Josh Lindblom heading to the bullpen, he will get a regular turn as part of the Brewers' initial starting rotation.

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Set to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson is scheduled to start Saturday's spring game against the Cubs, according to

Anderson's arrival in camp was a bit delayed, but he is ready to take the ball for the first time this spring. He is in position to break camp with a spot in the Brewers' rotation, and he will have ample time to build up his pitch count before Opening Day.

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Slight delay for COVID testing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson has yet to arrive at camp due to intake protocols, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Anderson didn't sign until mid-February and then was delayed by the storm in Texas. He'll be a few days behind his teammates but should be done with COVID testing Monday or Tuesday, leaving him plenty of time to be fully ready for the upcoming season.

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Back with Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson returned to the Brewers on a one-year, $2.5 million contract Tuesday, Jeff Passan of reports.

The veteran lefty can make an additional $1 million in incentives. He was a serviceable starter for the Brewers last season, posting a 4.21 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 10 starts, but his 15.8 percent strikeout rate (his highest number in six years) suppresses keeps him on the fringes of fantasy consideration. Most significantly, he stayed healthy for almost the entire season for the second year in a row, an encouraging sign after he averaged just 11 major-league starts per year from 2016-18.

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Not available for wild-card round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (finger) isn't included on the Brewers' 28-man roster for the team's wild-card series with the Dodgers that begins Wednesday, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Anderson needs more time to heal up after developing a blister on a finger on his left hand during his start in the Brewers' regular-season finale Sunday. The veteran southpaw will presumably try to resume throwing at some point within the next few days, which could keep him in the mix to rejoin the postseason roster next week if the Brewers should advance to the divisional round.

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

Anderson was removed in the third inning of his start Sunday against the Cardinals with a blister on his left index finger, Adam McCalvy of reports.

After retiring six of the first seven batters he faced over two scoreless innings, Anderson opened the bottom of the third by allowing a leadoff triple to Harrison Bader followed by a nine-pitch walk to Tyler O'Neill. Following O'Neill's at-bat, Anderson had his left hand looked at a by a team trainer before he headed to the dugout. Anderson already spent time on the injured list earlier this season with a blister, so the issue could keep him sidelined for the wild-card round of the playoffs, should the Brewers secure a spot in the postseason.

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Records fourth victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (4-3) earned the win Tuesday at Cincinnati after allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits with seven strikeouts and zero walks over seven innings.

It was a horrible start for the veteran lefty as leadoff man Aristides Aquino reached via an error and Nick Castellanos subsequently clubbed a two-run homer, but he quickly settled down and blanked the Reds the rest of the way. Anderson has a 4.00 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 31:9 K:BB over 45 innings and lines up to pitch Sunday's regular-season finale at St. Louis.

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Picks up third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (3-3) was credited with the victory in a win over the Cardinals on Tuesday, pitching five innings during which he allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while recording three strikeouts.

Anderson moved to .500 for the season and bounced back nicely after allowing a season-high four runs in back-to-back starts versus Pittsburgh and Cleveland. After a sore hip resulted in his start getting pushed back, Anderson showed no discomfort and there were no reported setbacks. He is scheduled to make his next start Monday versus the Reds.

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Cleared to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (hip) is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Cardinals, Adam McCalvy of reports.

Anderson will end up getting pushed back two days in the Brewers' pitching schedule after he was initially scratched ahead of Saturday's game against the Cubs due to a sore right hip. Given that he wasn't forced to halt his throwing program on account of the injury, Anderson shouldn't face any restrictions with his pitch count in Tuesday's outing.

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Scratched with hip issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday due to right hip tightness, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

Brent Suter will take the mound against the Cubs in Anderson's place as the Brewers will move their anticipated bullpen game to Saturday. Manager Craig Counsell said that Anderson could be available for one of the team's games against the Cardinals as the Brewers are slated to play two doubleheaders against them early next week.

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Takes loss vs. Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (2-3) took the loss to the Indians on Sunday, allowing four runs on six hits and two walks across five-plus innings. He struck out one.

After allowing just three runs across 12 innings during his Aug. 19 and Aug. 24 starts, Anderson has now been tagged for eight runs over just 10 frames in his last two outings. The southpaw had an opportunity to notch a quality start when he went out for the sixth inning, but he allowed a pair of hits to start the frame before being pulled and was later charged with two more runs. He will look to bounce back when he takes the ball Saturday against the Cubs.

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Struggles through five frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson pitched five innings against Pittsburgh on Saturday, allowing four runs on nine hits while striking out three. He did not factor in the decision.

Anderson entered the contest coming off two straight quality starts, but he didn't have his best stuff against the Pirates, yielding a season-high nine hits and four runs. The southpaw will carry a 4.18 ERA and 1.36 WHIP into his next start, currently scheduled for Saturday at Cleveland.
