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.
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 MLB.com 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.
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.
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.
Anderson (hip) is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Cardinals, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com 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.
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.
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.
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.
Anderson (2-2) picked up the win Monday against the Reds, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk across six innings pitched. He struck out three.
The left-hander has picked up a pair of wins while giving up just three runs across 12 innings in his last two starts. The Reds picked up their runs on solo homers from Curt Casali in the sixth and Eugenio Suarez in the seventh. Anderson, whose ERA is down to 3.52 on the campaign, will look to stay sharp when he toes the rubber Saturday against the Pirates.
Anderson (1-2) allowed one run on five hits over six innings in a win over the Twins on Wednesday. He struck out five and did not issue a walk.
This performance was a surprise. Anderson did not pitch more than 4.1 innings in any of his first three starts after missing time with a finger blister, and entered this game with a 4.91 ERA and 1.64 WHIP. The lefty had the lowest strikeout rate among qualified starters last season and is too volatile to start on a regular basis, though the 32-year-old showed Wednesday that he can still have his moments. Anderson gets the Reds and Pirates at home next week.
Anderson (0-2) took the loss against the Cubs on Thursday, pitching 4.1 innings and allowing two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five.
Anderson needed 87 pitches to get through 4.1 frames, but he was able to limit the damage to a pair of runs despite allowing eight baserunners. The southpaw has increased his innings total and pitch count in each turn through the rotation, though he has yet to go deep enough to qualify for a win. Anderson now sports a 4.91 ERA and 1.64 WHIP through three starts. He'll next take the mound in a road matchup against a tough Minnesota offense Tuesday.
Anderson (0-1) was charged with three runs (two earned) on four hits over 3.2 innings in a loss to the Reds on Saturday. He struck out two and walked two.
Cincinnati cashed in on a Keston Hiura fielding error in the first inning with a Eugenio Suarez three-run homer. Anderson was able to keep the ball on the ground otherwise, inducing eight groundballs before giving way to Corbin Burnes. The veteran southpaw missed the start of the season with a finger injury and is still building his arm up (68 pitches Saturday). Anderson projects for a couple tough road matchups against the Cubs and Twins in the weeks ahead, assuming he sticks in the starting rotation.
Anderson (finger) didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 6-4 loss to the White Sox, giving up two runs on five hits over three innings. He struck out two.
The veteran southpaw was held to 52 pitches (30 strikes) in his first start of the season. Anderson should get stretched out as he settles into the rotation, but he's a tough guy to rely on for consistent innings. While he did toss 176 IP last year, it was the first time since 2015 he stayed healthy enough to clear triple digits. Anderson's next outing is scheduled for Saturday, at home against the Reds.
Anderson (finger) was activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start against the White Sox on Monday.
Anderson has been the Brewers' scheduled starter for several days, but his expected starts against St. Louis kept getting scrapped due to the Cardinals' coronavirus-related issues. He'll finally get to make his season debut Monday and will look to build on a 2019 campaign in which he recorded a solid 3.89 ERA.
Anderson (finger) won't make his scheduled start during Sunday's doubleheader against the Cardinals since both games were postponed due to multiple positive tests for COVID-19, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Anderson was supposed to make his season debut this weekend after beginning the season on the injured list, but the series never got started with the Cardinals producing the positive tests Friday, with more positives announced Saturday. It seemed only to be a matter of time before Sunday's doubleheader was also postponed. The veteran left-hander will presumably take the mound Monday versus the White Sox.
Anderson (finger) won't make his scheduled start Saturday since the game was postponed after the Cardinals produced multiple positive tests for COVID-19, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Anderson was set to make his season debut this weekend against the Cardinals, but the first two games of the series have been pushed back due to multiple positive COVID-19 tests within the Cardinals' organization. While no official decision has been made regarding Sunday's doubleheader, it appears unlikely that the teams will be able to take the field after several new tests returned positive for the Cardinals on Saturday. While the Brewers haven't made their rotation plans known, Anderson could make his debut Sunday or Monday.
Anderson (finger) won't make his scheduled start Friday as the game was postponed after the Cardinals produced multiple positive tests for COVID-19, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Anderson was set to be activated off the 10-day injured list Friday, but it appears that transaction will have to wait for another day. According to Anne Rogers of MLB.com, the game is scheduled to be made up as part of a doubleheader Sunday, and Saturday's contest is expected to be played, so the veteran left-hander should still make his season debut sometime this weekend. The Brewers haven't officially announced their rotation plans, so it's unclear if he'll just be pushed back a day or if he'll pitch during the twin bill.
Anderson (finger) will start Friday against the Cardinals, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Anderson has dealt with a blister on his left index finger since being removed from an intrasquad matchup prior to the regular season, but manager Craig Counsell confirmed Tuesday that he'll be able to return from the injured list when he's first eligible Friday. The southpaw logged a 3.89 ERA and 1.31 WHIP over 176 innings across 31 starts with the A's last season.
Anderson (finger) could start Friday's game against the Cardinals, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Anderson began the season on the 10-day injured list due to a blister on his left index finger, but he's been able to continue throwing while he's recovered. Manager Craig Counsell said Monday that there's a "pretty good chance" Anderson will be able to pitch when he's first eligible to come off the injured list, which would put him on track to start in Friday's home opener against the Cardinals.
Anderson (finger) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday.
Anderson was removed from Wednesday's intrasquad matchup due to a blister on his left index finger, and Monday's move signals that he'll miss the start of the regular season. The southpaw was cleared to play catch Sunday, so he could able to return soon after spending the minimum of 10 days on the injured list. It's unclear who the Brewers will use to replace Anderson in the rotation, but they could elect to use two pitchers in a piggyback start in his absence. The 32-year-old dealt with various minor injuries with the Athletics last season but still made 31 starts, logging a 3.89 ERA and 90:49 K:BB over 176 innings.
