Anderson (0-2) took the loss Thursday as the Blue Jays fell 10-7 to the Yankees, coughing up seven runs on eight hits -- including an incredible five home runs -- and a walk over 2.2 innings of relief. He struck out four.
Entering the game after opener Julian Merryweather allowed two runs in the first inning, Anderson tossed a couple of clean frames before a disastrous fourth in which the Yankees posted their first five-homer inning in franchise history, en route to becoming the first team in MLB history to slug six or more homers in three straight games. Anderson's next outing is also scheduled to come against the Yankees back in Buffalo on Tuesday, but his 7.45 ERA and 1.72 WHIP through 29 innings this season don't inspire much confidence that he's ready for a rematch.
Anderson will work behind an opener Thursday against the Yankees, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.
The veteran right-hander was slated to make a traditional start Thursday, but Julian Merryweather has now been tabbed as the opener. Anderson has started in all seven of his outings this season and has a 5.81 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 25:8 K:BB over 26.1 innings.
Anderson (0-1) allowed four runs on four hits and three walks while striking out four over 2.2 innings as he was charged with the loss Friday against the Mets.
Anderson has struggled mightily in his last two starts, and he picked up his first decision of the season in Friday's 18-1 loss. The right-hander hasn't lasted longer than five innings in any of his seven starts in 2020 as he carries a 5.81 ERA and 1.56 WHIP through 26.1 innings. He'll attempt to right the ship on the road Thursday against the Yankees.
Anderson gave up six runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out three over four innings versus the Red Sox on Saturday. He did not factor in the decision.
Four of the six runs charged to Anderson came on three homers in the second inning. He also allowed a two-run double to Rafael Devers in the fourth. Anderson has yet to record a result is six starts this year, but Saturday was by far his worst performance. The right-hander now has a 4.94 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 21 strikeouts across 23.2 innings. He'll try to keep the ball in the yard Friday versus the Mets.
Anderson allowed a run on three hits while fanning eight across five innings pitched in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Orioles. He did not factor in the decision and did not issue a walk.
The Jays were careful with Anderson once again, pulling him after five innings and 84 pitches despite the right-hander appearing to be in full control. The 32-year-old's eight strikeouts shattered his previous season high of three. He was in line to pick up his first win after Toronto took a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the fifth, but had to settle for his fifth consecutive no-decision after the Orioles tied the game in the sixth. Nonetheless, it was Anderson's best start of the season and he will look to keep his momentum going Sunday in Boston.
Anderson didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 9-7 loss to the Red Sox, allowing four runs (three earned) on seven hits and a walk over five-plus innings. He struck out three.
Staked to a 4-0 lead after the first inning, Anderson was reasonably effective through five frames, but after he walked the leadoff batter in the sixth, manager Charlie Montoyo gave him the hook, and Anderson could only watch as the bullpen melted down for six runs. The right-hander did throw a season-high 83 pitches (55 strikes) and completed five innings for the first time, but with the Jays being particularly cautious right now with their remaining healthy starters, that might be about Anderson's limit. He'll take a 3.68 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 10:4 K:BB through 14.2 innings into his next outing Sunday, at home against the Orioles.
Anderson allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk across 3.2 innings pitched in the 3-2 win over the Phillies in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.
Thursday marked yet another short start for Anderson as he continues to build up arm strength after missing the beginning of the season with an oblique strain. After tossing 45 and 59 pitches in his first two outings, the 32-year-old upped his pitch count to 78 (44 strikes) while working into the fourth inning for the first time Thursday. Anderson will look to work deeper into the game and pick up his first win when he takes the ball Tuesday against Boston.
Anderson pitched three innings against Tampa Bay on Saturday, allowing one run on five hits while striking out three. The game was suspended due to rain.
After throwing 45 pitches in his season debut, Anderson hurled 59 on Saturday, 39 of which were strikes. He yielded only one extra-base hit in his three frames -- a solo home run to Austin Meadows in the third inning. Whether the right-hander will suffer a loss due to his lone mistake will be determined Sunday when the suspended game is completed. Anderson is expected to next take the mound Thursday at home against Philadelphia.
Anderson (oblique) allowed one run on a hit and two walks while striking out one in three innings versus the Red Sox on Saturday. He did not factor in the decision.
Anderson missed a couple of weeks with an oblique strain, but he pitched fairly well in a short debut. His only run came on a Christian Vazquez single. Anderson threw 26 of his 45 pitches for strikes. The 32-year-old pitched to a 4.21 ERA and 1.27 WHIP with 124 strikeouts in 139 innings last season with the Brewers. Anderson may still need a few weeks to get to a starter's workload. His next appearance is scheduled for next Saturday versus the Rays.
Anderson (oblique) was activated from the 10-day injured list Saturday.
Anderson will make his season debut against the Red Sox on Saturday after he was sidelined with an oblique strain to begin the regular season. The right-hander still hasn't built up to a full workload, so he isn't expected to throw more than three innings during his first outing. Outfielder Billy McKinney was optioned to the taxi squad to make room on the active roster.
Anderson (oblique) is expected to start Saturday against Boston, Gregor Chisholm of the Toronto Star reports.
Anderson's preseason buildup was delayed by an oblique strain. He's still not ready to handle a true starter's workload, but he's expected to throw up to three innings Saturday before handing the ball to a long reliever.
Anderson (oblique) could return from the injured list to start Saturday against the Red Sox, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
Anderson has been dealing with an oblique strain since early in summer camp. If he does wind up starting Saturday, he isn't expected to throw more than three innings, as he's yet to build up to a full starter's workload.
Blue Jays pitching coach Pete Walker said Sunday that Anderson (oblique) will be activated from the 10-day injured list this week, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Beyond confirming Matt Shoemaker as the starter for Tuesday's game against the Braves, the Blue Jays haven't outlined their rotation plans for the rest of the week, so Anderson could conceivably start either of the final two games of the series in Atlanta. The right-hander threw a live batting practice session Sunday, which likely marks the final hurdle he'll need to clear in his recovery from the right oblique strain he sustained in the second week of July.
Anderson (oblique) was able to throw three innings in a simulated game Wednesday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
Per manager Charlie Montoyo, Anderson "looked really good." The workload suggests the right-hander could be close to coming off the injured list, but with Nate Pearson now having made his debut, it's unclear whether there will be room for Anderson in the rotation once he's healthy.
Anderson (oblique) will throw a simulated game Wednesday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.
Anderson has been dealing with an oblique strain since early in camp but has been able to throw for nearly two weeks. It's not clear exactly how many pitches he's expected to throw Wednesday or how close he is to his return.
The Blue Jays placed Anderson (oblique) on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
Anthony Kay earned a spot on the Blue Jays' 30-man Opening Day rotation and is expected to step into the rotation as a replacement for Anderson, who has since resumed throwing off a mound after straining his right oblique just under two weeks ago. Anderson will probably need more than a week to ramp up to a starter's workload, so the Blue Jays will likely need to fill his turn in the rotation at least two times.
Anderson (oblique) completed a successful bullpen session Wednesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
It's the first time the 32-year-old has thrown off a mound since suffering the oblique injury 10 days ago, so it's a significant step in his recovery. Anderson is beginning the season on the injured list, but manager Charlie Montoyo doesn't expect him to be sidelined for long. Anthony Kay, Ryan Borucki and Nate Pearson are in the mix to round out the starting rotation while Anderson remains on the shelf.
Anderson (oblique) threw from 120 feet Monday and will throw a bullpen session Wednesday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Anderson will be opening the season on the injured list due to an oblique strain he's dealt with throughout summer camp, but the fact that he's nearly ready to throw a bullpen session is certainly a good sign. Starts are available for the Blue Jays until he returns, with Ryan Borucki, Anthony Kay and Nate Pearson lining up as the primary candidates.
Manager Charlie Montoyo announced Sunday that Anderson (oblique) will begin the season on the injured list, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The team indicated shortly after the right-hander suffered the oblique strain last week that he was unlikely to be ready for the start of the season, so it's not a surprise he's heading to the IL. Anderson continues to throw long toss and is progressing toward mound work, per Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca, but he has no official timeline for his return. Trent Thornton receives some stability in the rotation thanks to the news, while Ryan Borucki, Anthony Kay and Nate Pearson are in the mix for the No. 5 spot.
Anderson (oblique) was throwing off flat ground from 90 feet Tuesday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The Blue Jays announced over the weekend that the veteran right-hander had been dealing with the oblique strain for several days, so it's encouraging to see him back to throwing relatively quickly. Pitching coach Pete Walker already said Anderson is unlikely to be available for the start of the season next week, but a return to the mound soon could go a long way toward minimizing his absence during the shortened season.
