Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Unlikely to return in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (knee) is unlikely to return from the 60-day injured list this season, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Before Anderson underwent surgery on his left knee earlier this month, the Rockies left the door open for him to return later in the season, but the organization is apparently no longer seriously considering bringing him back. Colorado will likely monitor the southpaw's progress carefully over the next months before determining whether it's worthwhile to tender him a contract for 2020, when he'll be entering his second year of arbitration.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Slated for surgery Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson will undergo surgery on his left knee Tuesday, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Anderson is finally scheduled for surgery after landing on the injured list May 22. The Rockies have yet to unveil a timetable for his return, though there appears to be a chance that he could return this season, depending on what the doctors find during the procedure.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Yet to undergo surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson has yet to undergo surgery to repair a left knee chondral defect, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Anderson was transferred to the 60-day injured list near the end of May after it was determined that he would require knee surgery, though the southpaw apparently still hasn't undergone the procedure. He's not a lock to return this season, a concern that increases with each day Anderson delays surgery.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Transferred to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (knee) was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque and placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

He is on the shelf after undergoing surgery to repair a left knee chondral defect, and may not even return this season, so this is simply procedural to open up a spot on the 40-man roster.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Decides to undergo surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson will undergo left knee surgery, Thomas Harding of reports.

Anderson posted an 11.76 ERA and 2.13 WHIP in five starts this season before being optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque and subsequently diagnosed with knee inflammation. Whether or not the surgery will keep him out all year won't be known until the procedure is complete.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Surgery decision coming soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson will decide whether or not to undergo knee surgery within the next few days, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Anderson struggled to start the season and was sent to Triple-A Albuquerque in early May. It was then revealed that he'd been dealing with left knee inflammation. His recovery timeline from any potential procedure is not yet known, but his absence would likely be a long one.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Set for knee exam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson hasn't pitched at Triple-A Albuquerque since being demoted May 4 and will head to Chicago this week to receive a medical opinion on his injured left knee, Thomas Harding of reports.

Before getting sent to the minors, Anderson spent two weeks on the injured list after experiencing inflammation in his left knee. Though Anderson went on to make three underwhelming starts with the Rockies, it appears the knee has still been a source of discomfort for the lefty. Anderson, who previously required arthroscopic surgery on the knee in 2017, will have a specialist assess his condition and determine the best treatment method for the persistent injury.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday.

Anderson reportedly had a tenuous hold on his rotation spot heading into Friday's game against the Diamondbacks, and allowing six runs in four innings was evidently the last straw. He'll try to figure things out in Albuquerque after recording an 11.76 ERA in his first five starts. Yency Almonte will take his place on the roster, though it's not yet clear who will take his spot in the rotation.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Shelled again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (0-3) took the loss against the Diamondbacks on Friday, giving up six runs on seven hits over four innings. He struck out five and walked one in the 10-9 loss.

The left-hander continues to get lit up to start the season, as he's given up at least five earned runs in all five trips to the mound he's made so far in 2019. Manager Bud Black has said that Anderson's spot in the rotation was on tenuous ground given his early-season struggles, and he didn't inspire confidence of a turnaround in this contest, so it's possible he's set to lose his spot.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Shaky hold on rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bud Black said that Anderson would start Friday at home against the Diamondbacks but hinted that the left-hander's rotation spot may be on shaky ground, MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM reports. "We're aware, [Anderson is] aware we're going to try and run out our best five guys, every chance we can," Black said.

Anderson posted a season-high nine strikeouts in his last turn in Atlanta over the weekend, but he failed to escape the fifth inning for the third start in a row. Even when he maxed out at five innings in his first outing of the season March 30, Anderson still ceded five runs to a lowly Marlins offense, so he hasn't given the Rockies or fantasy players much reason to have faith in him. Don't expect dramatically better results when Anderson returns to action at Coors Field this weekend, with another bad outing potentially putting him at risk of a demotion to the bullpen or even Triple-A Albuquerque.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Fans nine in disappointing outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson allowed five runs on four hits and four walks while striking out nine over 4.2 innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Braves.

Anderson wasn't sharp on the hill in this one, and the Braves got to him for three first-inning runs on a pair of long balls. Atlanta also tacked on another run in the third and fourth innings before the 29-year-old was lifted. Anderson has struggled mightily so far this season, and his 11.34 ERA over 16.2 frames proves it.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Struggles again in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson gave up five runs on four hits with three walks while striking out four through three innings in a no-decision against the Nationals on Monday.

In his return from the injured list, Anderson delivered another miserable outing. The left-hander has given up at least five runs in each of his appearances this season. The 29-year-old has a 0-2 record with a 12.00 ERA through three starts. Anderson will get his next start Sunday against the Braves.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Will start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (knee) was activated from the 10-day injured list and will start Monday against the Nationals, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

It was an expected move for the left-hander, after manager Bud Black hinted Sunday that Anderson may be in line for Monday's start. He will make his return for this bout with the Nationals, and hopefully a clean bill of health will get him on track as he had given up 11 earned runs in just nine innings before his trip to the injured list with knee inflammation. The Rockies placed Kyle Freeland (blister) on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Potential start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (knee) could return to the rotation Monday against the Nationals, Taylor McGregor of AT&T Sportsnet reports.

Manager Bud Black hinted after the game that Anderson will be the starter but stopped short of confirming the news. Anderson pitched nine innings prior to being placed on the injured list with inflammation in his right knee, racking up an 11.00 ERA and 2.33 WHIP.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Tosses side session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (knee) threw a bullpen session Monday without issue, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

The Rockies bumped Chad Bettis from their starting rotation to the bullpen, and following a healthy bullpen from Anderson, it would appear as though he's close to being activated. While Anderson's return from the injured list isn't imminent at this point, per Groke, he's certainly trending in the right direction.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Rehabbing in Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (knee) reported to the Rockies' spring-training facility in Arizona last week to begin his rehab program, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Anderson was placed on the 10-day injured list April 7 and won't be ready to return when first eligible Monday. The Rockies haven't provided a timeline for his return from his bout with left knee inflammation, but the fact that he's not traveling with the team implies that he may be sidelined for multiple weeks. Colorado has yet to announce a replacement in the rotation for Anderson's scheduled turn Monday against the Padres, though Antonio Senzatela (knee) looks like the leading candidate to fill the opening.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Heading to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with left knee inflammation.

Anderson was lit up for six runs in Friday's start against the Dodgers, though it remains unclear how much of an issue the knee posed in that game. The 29-year-old is eligible to return April 15 against the Padres, which would only cost him one turn through the rotation if the injury is not that serious.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Blasted by Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (0-2) took the loss against the Dodgers on Friday, giving up six earned runs on nine hits over four innings, striking out two and walking three as the Rockies fell 10-6.

Anderson was shelled for a second straight start, as he followed up a disastrous first outing of the season that saw him get lit up by the Marlins with another rough performance. The left-hander has now yielded 11 earned runs through nine innings and isn't fooling anybody, as opponents are hitting .429 against him. He was a risky streaming option anyway, with a 4.37 career ERA over 381.1 innings, but these early-season struggles leave him well off the radar until he demonstrates sustained signs of a turnaround.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Mauled by Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (0-1) took the loss Saturday, coughing up five runs on nine hits over five innings while striking out three as the Rockies fell 7-3 to the Marlins.

The southpaw carried his Cactus League troubles into the regular season, managing only nine swinging strikes among his 85 pitches and proving to be very hittable when he was in the zone. Anderson will try to get on track when he next takes the mound April 5, at home against the Dodgers.

Rockies' Tyler Anderson: Having rough spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson has given up 11 hits and seven earned runs over eight innings of work in Cactus League play this spring.

It's been tough sledding in the Cactus League thus far for the left-hander, who is sporting a 7.88 ERA and 1.75 WHIP. He maintained a firm grasp on a role at the back end of Colorado's rotation last year, but the 4.55 ERA that he posted over 176 innings was also subpar, so the 29-year-old is difficult to trust for the time being.
