Rangers' Chase Anderson: Joins Rangers on minors deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Tuesday, Robert Murray of reports.

Anderson didn't have to wait long to find a new club after getting released by the Phillies on Sunday. He joins a team that's in desperate need of starting pitching, with Dane Dunning, Mike Foltynewicz and Spencer Howard all on the COVID-19 injured list. The Rangers may prefer to give opportunities to younger players rather than a 33-year-old who owns a 6.94 ERA over the last two seasons, however, so there's no guarantee he joins the major-league roster any time soon.

Chase Anderson: Let go by Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was released by the Phillies on Sunday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Anderson was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Thursday and has now parted ways with the team. The veteran right-hander struggled as both a starter and reliver this season with a 6.75 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 35:20 K:BB across 48 innings (14 appearances).

Phillies' Chase Anderson: Dropped from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies designated Anderson for assignment Thursday, Todd Zolecki of reports.

The well-traveled right-hander will cede his spot on the active roster to Zach Eflin (kneecap), who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Thursday versus the Diamondbacks. Whether working out of the rotation or as a long reliever for Philadelphia, Anderson found little success. Over 48 innings Anderson posted a 6.75 ERA (5.85 FIP) and 1.48 WHIP.

Phillies' Chase Anderson: Activated, likely bound for bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies reinstated Anderson (triceps) from the 10-day injured list Sunday.

Anderson spent just over the minimum amount of time on the IL with right triceps tendinitis, but his absence may have been long enough to cost him his spot in the rotation. After Anderson had served as the Phillies' fifth starter prior to going on the shelf, Matt Moore stepped into the rotation in his stead and tossed six no-hit innings in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Reds. Look for Moore to be rewarded with another start during the upcoming week, leaving Anderson to work out of the bullpen for the time being.

Phillies' Chase Anderson: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was placed on the 10-day injured list with right triceps tendinitis Saturday, retroactive to Aug. 5.

Anderson had a rough outing against the Nationals on Wednesday and allowed three home runs in four innings, and he'll miss at least one turn through the rotation after he was diagnosed with a triceps injury. The Phillies will be able to skip his scheduled start early next week since the team has a day off Monday, but they haven't announced who will take his place in the rotation if he misses more than the minimum of 10 days.

Phillies' Chase Anderson: Trouble with long ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 9-5 win over the Nationals, giving up three runs on three hits -- all solo home runs -- and a walk over four innings. He struck out one.

The 33-year-old's difficulty keeping the ball in the yard led to an early 3-0 hole for the Phillies, and while Anderson's offense bailed him out, he still exited before he could get credit for a win. With Zach Eflin (knee) potentially close to returning and Ranger Suarez looking good so far as a starter, Anderson's return to the rotation doesn't figure to last long.

Phillies' Chase Anderson: Awarded starting nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Nationals, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

At least temporarily, Anderson will join the rotation as a replacement for Vince Velasquez, who was moved to the bullpen Saturday after another rocky start. Anderson is unlikely to represent much of an upgrade from Velasquez, as he's been hit hard this season whether working as a starter or a long reliever. The 33-year-old right-hander has submitted a 6.75 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 7.0 K/9 across 44 innings with Philadelphia.

Phillies' Chase Anderson: Returns from COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies reinstated Anderson from the COVID-19-related injured list Sunday.

Anderson was placed on the COVID-19-related IL for the second time this season June 10, but he's been healthy for quite some time, as he's made five rehab appearances at Lehigh Valley over the past three weeks. Though he was stretched out for starting duty during his time in the minors, Anderson is expected to fill a long-relief role in his return to Philadelphia.

Phillies' Chase Anderson: Rehabbing at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (COVID-19 list) made his third rehab start for Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday, tossing 65 pitches (40 strikes) while working three innings and surrendering four earned runs on six hits, no walks and six strikeouts.

Anderson hasn't pitched for the Phillies since May 31 after being placed on the COVID-19-related list on two occasions. The right-hander resumed game action with the Triple-A club nearly a month later, and the Phillies appear to be building him up for starting duty. Given his poor results with the big club earlier this season (7.34 ERA and 1.61 WHIP across 38 innings) and in light of his underwhelming outing Friday, Anderson likely won't warrant much consideration for the big-league rotation once activated. Instead, he'll presumably serve as a long-relief option if the Phillies don't elect to designate him for assignment.

Phillies' Chase Anderson: Back on COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson returned to the COVID-19 injured list Thursday.

In a confusing turn of events, Anderson landed on the COVID-19 injured list Sunday before being removed Tuesday, only to head back to the list two days later. The short nature of his original stay suggests he was merely exposed to someone with the virus and didn't test positive himself, but it's possible he's since done so. Catcher Rafael Marchan was recalled in a corresponding move.

Phillies' Chase Anderson: Returns from COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies reinstated Anderson (COVID-19) from the COVID-19 restricted list Tuesday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Anderson appears to have avoided a bout with the virus, as he returns just two days after landing on the COVID-19 list. The righty is back with the Phillies for now, but he may not continue receiving opportunities if he can't improve upon his alarming 7.34 ERA.

Phillies' Chase Anderson: Heads to COVID IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies placed Anderson on the COVID-19-related injured list prior to Sunday's game against the Nationals.

Reliever David Hale was also added to the COVID IL, but the Phillies didn't specify whether the two pitchers were moved to the list due to testing positive for the virus. Since being bounced from the rotation after giving up seven runs in 1.1 innings in a May 16 loss to the Blue Jays, Anderson hasn't fared much better in a low-leverage relief role. In his first three outings out of the bullpen, Anderson has surrendered six earned runs on eight hits and a walk over 5.2 innings.

Phillies' Chase Anderson: Bound for bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson will move to the bullpen, with Spencer Howard set to start in his place Saturday against the Red Sox, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Anderson won an Opening Day rotation spot but did very little to keep it, struggling to a 6.96 ERA and 1.61 WHIP through eight starts. Those numbers look worryingly similar to his 7.22 ERA and 1.63 WHIP from 2020. He'll make way for the Phillies' top pitching prospect for now, but it's possible he's needed in the rotation again soon, as Vince Velasquez's status remains uncertain after getting scratched from his Thursday start due to a numb finger.

Phillies' Chase Anderson: Hit hard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (2-4) allowed seven runs on eight hits and a walk in 1.1 innings to take the loss against the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Anderson's outing Sunday got off a rough start as he gave up home runs to Marcus Semien and Bo Bichette to lead off the game. He didn't fare much better in the second inning, as he allowed six consecutive batters to reach base before he was removed. Anderson now has a 6.96 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in 32.1 innings across eight starts in 2021. He lines up to make his next start at home against the Red Sox on Saturday.

Phillies' Chase Anderson: Ekes out win over Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (2-3) picked up the win in Tuesday's 6-2 victory over the Nationals, allowing two runs on three hits and a walk over five-plus innings. He struck out five.

The veteran right-hander lasted the bare minimum to qualify for the win, but he seemed to be in control while blanking Washington for five innings. However, after serving up a solo shot to Trea Turner and then walking Juan Soto to lead off the sixth, he got a quick hook. Anderson tossed 52 of 85 pitches for strikes, and he'll carry a 5.23 ERA and 26:15 K:BB through 31 innings into his next outing.

Phillies' Chase Anderson: Can't find plate in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Brewers, allowing three runs on four hits and four walks over 4.1 innings while striking out two.

The right-hander got handed a 5-0 lead in the first inning, but Anderson couldn't last long enough to collect the resulting win as he needed 92 pitches (49 strikes) to record 13 outs. He has yet to pitching more than five innings in any start this season, and Anderson will take a 5.54 ERA and 21:14 K:BB through 26 innings into his next outing.

Phillies' Chase Anderson: Collects first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (1-3) earned the win Friday versus the Mets, allowing one run on five hits and two walks with six strikeouts in five-plus innings.

Anderson gave up a leadoff single to Pete Alonso in the sixth inning, and reliever JoJo Romero allowed him to score. The 33-year-old Anderson was at the plate for the Phillies' two runs Friday. The right-hander struck out but reached on a passed ball, and both Brad Miller and Andrew Knapp were able to dart home to score on the play. Anderson has an unimpressive 5.40 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 19:10 k:BB across 21.2 innings in five outings. He projects to face the Brewers next week.

Phillies' Chase Anderson: Remains winless
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (0-3) allowed six runs on six hits and three walks while striking out just two over 3.2 innings in a defeat to the Rockies on Sunday.

Anderson was cruising along through the first three innings but completely fell apart in the fourth. He ended up loading the bases with a walk and proceeded to allow back-to-back RBI singles before walking another batter to keep all the bases occupied. Phillies' manager Joe Girardi decided he had seen enough and brought in David Hale to try and finish the inning. He ended up watching Trevor Story trot around the bases after crushing a hanging curveball over the wall in left for a grand slam. Anderson ended up being charged six runs in the inning and now owns a 6.48 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP over 16.2 innings. He'll be in search of his first win this season when he takes the bump against the Mets on Friday.

Phillies' Chase Anderson: Pays for mistake Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (0-2) took the loss Monday in Monday's 2-0 defeat at the hands of the Giants, allowing two runs on five hits and no walks over four innings. He struck out five.

The right-hander exited after throwing 70 pitches (47 strikes), but there was only one offering Anderson would like to have back -- a third-inning curveball he left over the plate that Brandon Belt deposited in the seats in right field for the game's only offense. Anderson has a 4.15 ERA and 11:5 K:BB through 13 innings, but he'll be a very risky fantasy option in his next outing, slated for Sunday against the Rockies in Coors Field.

Phillies' Chase Anderson: No-decision in Tuesday's matinee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson didn't factor into the decision in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets, giving up two runs on three hits and three walks over four innings, He struck out three.

Dominic Smith tagged him for a two-run homer in the first inning, but Anderson was able to avoid any further damage despite steady traffic on the bases. The right-hander tossed 44 of his 74 pitches for strikes, and he'll take a 4.00 ERA and subpar 6:5 K:BB through nine innings into his next outing, set for Monday at home against the Giants.
