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.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Impressive in eighth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (8-5) earned the victory Saturday, allowing only two hits and two walks while striking out three over 7.2 innings in a 4-0 win over the Angels.

It was the longest outing of the year for the 31-year-old, and it was also the first time he kept runs off the board since his season debut, which also came against the Angels. Anderson lowered his ERA to 3.92 with the sparkling performance. A 48:33 K:BB and 1.33 WHIP over 96.1 innings don't look great, but he's only allowed four or more runs twice in his last nine starts. Anderson is expected to face the Mariners on Friday in his next appearance.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Cursed by fourth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (7-5) coughed up seven runs on nine hits and two walks in three innings Sunday, taking the loss to the Rays.

Anderson gave up three runs in the third inning, including a two-run shot by Travis d'Arnaud. He then gave up four straight hits without recording an out to start the fourth, knocking him out of the game. Brian Schlitter would allow another two hits, charging Anderson with two more runs after he was back in the dugout. Anderson's ERA jumped from 3.68 to 4.26 across 88.2 frames. He'll face the Angels in Anaheim on Saturday.

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

Anderson (7-4) picked up the win in Tuesday's 16-2 rout of the Orioles, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk over seven innings while striking out two.

The veteran southpaw pitched to mostly weak contact, with Jonathan Villar's fifth-inning solo shot being the only extra-base hit Anderson allowed, and the A's offense did the rest. He'll take a 3.68 ERA and 45:29 K:BB through 85.2 innings into his next start Sunday, at home against the Rays.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Unable to finish seventh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson allowed two runs on seven hits and a walk across 6.1 innings during a no-decision against the Rays on Wednesday. He struck out four.

The 31-year-old pitched six scoreless innings, but he didn't get through the seventh and gave up two runs to allow the Rays to tie the game. Anderson left before the runs were scored, but the Athletics bullpen allowed both of its inherited runners to touch home plate. With the no-decision, Anderson stays 6-4 with a 3.89 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 43 strikeouts in 78.2 innings. His next scheduled start is Tuesday at home against the Orioles.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Turns in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson allowed three runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out five over 6.1 innings in Friday's no-decision against the Rangers.

Anderson's offense provided him with an early 2-0 advantage, but he'd surrender three runs in the sixth inning and gave up the lead prior to exiting. He fired 67 of 92 pitches for strikes and threw first-pitch strikes to 18 of the 28 batters he faced, so he certainly pounded the strike zone. Even though he was unable to emerge victorious, the 31-year-old lefty continues to look solid on the season and now owns a 3.98 ERA with 39 punchouts across 72.1 innings.

June 7, 2019 05:52 PM
Athletics' Brett Anderson: Confirmed as Friday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (oblique) is starting Friday's game against the Rangers.

As expected, Anderson will toe the rubber Friday after previously dealing with a mild oblique injury. He was forced to exit his last start early due to the issue, though he won't miss any additional time. Anderson owns a 6-4 record with a 3.95 ERA and 34 strikeouts across 66 innings this season for Oakland.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: On track for Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson is nursing a mild oblique injury but is on track to start Friday at Texas as scheduled, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Anderson made a precautionary exit from Saturday's start against the Astros after 5.1 innings, but after the game indicated he didn't expect to miss a start. The 31-year-old has a 3.95 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 34:26 K:BB through 66 innings this season.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Stuck with fourth loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (6-4) took the loss Saturday as the A's fell 5-1 to the Astros, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks over 5.1 innings while striking out two.

The left-hander didn't pitch poorly, but with Justin Verlander in typically dominant form opposite him, Anderson's fate was sealed when Josh Reddick touched him up for a two-run shot in the fourth inning. Anderson will carry a 3.95 ERA and 34:26 K:BB through 66 innings into his next start Friday, on the road against the Rangers.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Tosses quality start in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (6-3) allowed one run on five hits and four walks across 6.1 innings Sunday to earn the win over the Mariners. He struck out four.

Anderson exited his previous start with a neck issue, but he showed no signs of the issue as he quieted the Mariners' bats for much of the day. He coasted into the seventh inning with a lead but then allowed a solo home run and a single before he was lifted with one out. Perhaps the only real negative on the day was Anderson's propensity to walk hitters, as he now has an uninspiring 32:24 K:BB to his name this season. He's still found a way to pitch effectively, however, and will take a respectable 3.86 ERA into his next scheduled start against the Astros.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Won't miss start with neck injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (neck) is listed as the probable starter for Sunday's game against the Mariners, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

He was diagnosed with a cervical strain after exiting Monday's game with a neck injury. It would not have been surprising to see him land on the injured list, especially given his track record, but he told Slusser that the extra day off before his next start will help. Anderson has a 3.86 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 10 strikeouts in 23.1 innings over four May starts.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Diagnosed with cervical strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson left Monday night's game against the Indians with a cervical strain, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Anderson left the contest with one out in the sixth inning Monday, and after further evaluation, it's been determined that he suffered a cervical strain. A timeline for his return has yet to be revealed.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Leaves with neck issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson exited Monday night's game against the Indians with an apparent neck injury, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. He left in line for the victory, allowing one run on four hits and striking out one over 5.1 innings.

Anderson looked to suffer the injury earlier in the contest while trying to avoid a broken bat, though he managed to stay in the game until the sixth inning before leaving with the team trainer. The extent of the lefty's injury is unknown at this time.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Takes third loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (4-3) took the loss against Seattle on Tuesday, tossing six innings and giving up four runs on six hits and one walk while striking out five.

The lefty was victimized by three long balls against the homer-happy Mariners. On a positive note, Anderson's five strikeouts were a season high and he made it through six innings for his third straight outing. He'll head to Cleveland to face the Indians in his next start Monday.

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

Anderson didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 5-4 extra-innings win over the Reds, giving up four runs on five hits and five walks over six innings. He failed to strike out a batter.

The veteran southpaw was the opposite of dominant, managing only four swinging strikes among his 96 pitches (54 total strikes), but after a four-run second inning Anderson was able to keep Cincy off the board. He'll take a 4.19 ERA and 22:19 K:BB through 43 frames into his next start Monday in Seattle.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Earns fourth victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (4-2) allowed one run on four hits with four strikeouts and two walks across six innings in a victory against the Pirates on Friday.

The Pirates actually scored first against Anderson, but then the Athletics gave their starter 14 unanswered runs in support. Anderson didn't need most of them, as he turned in his best start since March 30. He allowed just four runners to reach base after the first inning, and when two other Pirates reached on errors, Anderson worked around his defense's mistakes without allowing any damage. Anderson is 4-2 with a 3.89 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 22 strikeouts in 37 innings this season. He will look to build upon this strong outing in his next start against the Reds at home Thursday.

Athletics' Brett Anderson: Yields six runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson allowed six runs on 10 hits with two strikeouts and two walks across 4.1 innings in a loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.

The Blue Jays shelled Anderson, as he allowed a season-high in runs and hits Saturday. Anderson had a pretty strong start to the year, but he's now 3-2 with a 4.35 ERA and 1.48 WHIP with 18 strikeouts in 31 innings. His next start will be on the road against the Pirates on Friday.

April 28, 2019 12:56 AM
Athletics' Brett Anderson: Confirmed as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (ankle) will start as expected Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Anderson left his previous start after spraining his left ankle, but reports from the time of the injury suggested his next start likely wouldn't be at risk. He is indeed ready to go and will look to improve on his 3-1 record and 3.04 ERA on Saturday.

April 25, 2019 12:32 AM
Athletics' Brett Anderson: Remains on track for Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (ankle) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Everything went off without a hitch, and Anderson said afterward that he doesn't anticipate his injured ankle keeping him from taking the mound Friday in Toronto. The veteran southpaw has been sharp through five outings this season, going 3-1 with a 3.04 ERA and 1.28 WHIP across 26.2 innings.
