Anderson is out of the lineup Friday against the Brewers, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Anderson went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer, a walk and two runs scored in Tuesday's 9-3 win over the Diamondbacks.
He missed the prior 11 games with an oblique strain, but Anderson got the ball rolling for the Marlins' offense by taking Riley Smith deep in the first inning. The veteran third baseman was off to a slow start this season before the injury, as he's still batting just .206 with two homers and eight RBI through 18 games.

The 27-year-old was eligible to be activated during the weekend series against the Nationals, but he'll end up spending a little more than the 10-day minimum on the shelf.

Anderson (oblique) is expected to return to the lineup around when he is first eligible, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.
Saturday is the earliest possible date for Anderson's activation from the IL, but with the Marlins getting an off day Monday, a more cautious approach would see him back on the field Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

Anderson (oblique) resumed light baseball activities Monday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Anderson will be placed on the 10-day injured list with a left oblique strain Thursday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday that Anderson is "a little nicked up" with a side issue, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Several position players for the Marlins are dealing with injuries, so Mattingly elected to hold Anderson out of the lineup Wednesday to help preserve his long-term health.

Anderson finally rewarded fantasy managers for their patience with Tuesday's performance. The 27-year-old had been struggling early on with just five hits in his first 30 at-bats but shook off the rust with a three-hit performance, including his first home run of the season. It's an encouraging sign to see him finally liven up at the plate, but fantasy managers should continue to take a cautious approach until he can prove that Tuesday's hitting clinic wasn't just a one-game effort.
Anderson will sit Saturday against the Rays, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Anderson started both of the first two games of the season at third base, going 1-for-7 at the plate. He'll hit the bench Saturday despite the fact that the Rays will start the game with the left-handed Rich Hill on the mound. Jon Berti makes his first start of the year in his absence.

The 27-year-old saw his strikeout rate rise to 28.8 percent last season, but Anderson's 45.0 percent rate this spring is something else entirely. There's little reason to put much stock in the small spring sample, as Anderson has wielded a consistent bat for the Marlins the last two years, slashing .259/.343/.467 with 31 homers and 104 RBI in 185 games. He still has time in camp to find his timing at the plate.
Anderson and the Marlins agreed to a one-year, $3.8 million contract Friday, avoiding arbitration, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Anderson helped the Marlins to their third ever postseason appearance last season, hitting a solid .255/.345/.465 with 11 homers. The 27-year-old hasn't shown signs that he's about to break out and become a true star hitter, but he should remain a key piece for a Marlins team that's looking to earn consecutive playoff berths for the first time.
