Braves' Ian Anderson: Able to play catch Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (shoulder) played catch before Thursday's game, Paul Casella of reports. "He said his shoulder felt really good," manager Brian Snitker said afterward. "So that was a really good thing."

The club will wait to see how the right-hander is feeling Friday before moving on to the next step in his recovery, but given that he's been sidelined since July 11, Anderson may need a brief rehab stint before rejoining the Atlanta rotation.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Feeling better
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (shoulder) is feeling better and will be re-evaluated in a few days, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Anderson hit the injured list Friday with right shoulder inflammation and was scheduled to be shut down for 7-to-10 days. Given that he's feeling better, it's possible he hits the short end of that timeframe, which would accelerate his eventual return to the active roster, though that can't be certain until the results of his re-evaluation are known.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Shut down 7-10 days
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (shoulder) will be shut down from throwing for 7-10 days, Mark Bowman of reports.

The right-hander isn't dealing with any structural damage in his shoulder, but he'll still be shut down at least a week to allow inflammation to subside. Anderson will require some time to build up his arm after the brief shutdown, so he likely won't be back until August. Touki Toussaint is slated to receive a look in the starting rotation during Anderson's absence.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with right shoulder inflammation, retroactive to July 13.

Manager Brian Snitker said the right-hander was likely headed to the IL after experiencing shoulder soreness during his start Sunday, and the move is now official coming out of the All-Star break. The diagnosis of inflammation indicates Anderson avoided a serious injury, though it's not clear how long he's expected to be sidelined. Touki Toussaint (shoulder) was activated from the 60-day IL in a corresponding move and could fill the spot in the starting rotation.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Likely to require IL stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said Anderson experienced shoulder soreness during his start in Sunday's 7-3 loss to the Marlins and will likely require a stint on the 10-day injured list, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

After giving up no more than three runs in any of his last four outings, Anderson didn't have his best stuff Sunday, giving up four earned runs on six hits and five walks over 3.1 innings to take his fifth loss of the season. The team plans to send Anderson in for further testing Tuesday with the hope the right-hander is merely dealing with fatigue, but Snitker believes the youngster could be contending with a more serious issue. A firmer diagnosis on Anderson should become available within the next few days, but for now, fantasy managers should plan on him missing his next turn through the rotation, even with the benefit of the upcoming All-Star break.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Allows one run in five frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson gave up a run on five hits and three walks during Tuesday's 2-1 loss at Pittsburgh. He struck out four and didn't factor in the decision.

The 23-year-old issued more than two walks for the first time in his past five starts and delivered only 56 of his 91 pitches for strikes. It was another strong outing for Anderson, who has a 2.62 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 29:9 K:BB across 34.1 frames in his last six outings. He tentatively lines up to close out the first half of the season Sunday at Miami.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Delivers quality start in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson allowed two earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out a pair across seven innings in the win Thursday. He did not factor into the decision.

Anderson allowed a run in the first inning on a Michael Conforto and surrendered a solo home run in the seventh frame to Dominic Smith. His two strikeouts were a season low, but he still posted his second quality start in a row and was in line for the win before the bullpen blew it. The 23-year-old has a 3.35 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP in 88.2 innings. He has a 2.45 ERA in 18.1 innings over his last three starts.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Fans nine in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (5-4) took the loss Saturday, giving up three runs on five hits and a walk over six innings as Atlanta fell 4-1 to the Reds. He struck out nine.

The young right-hander delivered his sixth quality start of the year with a season high in strikeouts, but Atlanta's bats didn't provide him with much run support. Anderson will carry a 3.42 ERA and 88:29 K:BB through 81.2 innings into his next outing.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Blanks Mets in nightcap Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (5-3) picked up the win in the second game of Monday's doubleheader against the Mets, allowing three hits and a walk over 5.1 scoreless innings in a 1-0 victory. He struck out five.

Ronald Acuna's fifth-inning homer proved to be the only run of the game, but Anderson and the Atlanta bullpen made it hold up. The right-hander fell two outs short of his seventh quality start of the year, and he'll take a 3.33 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 79:28 K:BB through 75.2 innings into his next outing.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Scorched by Boston on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson gave up four runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out five over four innings against the Red Sox on Wednesday. He did not factor in the decision.

Anderson has had a rough time of late, allowing exactly four runs and failing to make it through five innings in three of his past four starts. He didn't serve up any homers Wednesday, but four of the seven hits against him went for doubles, including one to opposing pitcher Garrett Richards that drove in Boston's fourth run. Anderson's recent rough stretch has pushed his season ERA to 3.58 -- it sat at 2.82 through his first nine starts. He'll try to get back on track when he faces the Mets on the road early next week.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Holds Phillies in check
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson allowed four hits and one walk while striking out four across seven scoreless innings Thursday against the Phillies. He did not factor into the decision.

Anderson kept pace with his counterpart Zack Wheeler by matching his longest start of the season and turning in his third scoreless effort. He didn't post gaudy strikeout or swinging strike numbers but limited the Phillies to just one extra-base hit. The strong effort lowered his ERA to 3.26 for the season, which he's supplemented with a 69:26 K:BB across 66.1 frames.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Dumped by Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (4-3) took the loss Friday as Atlanta fell 9-5 to the Dodgers, giving up four runs on one hit and three walks over 4.1 innings. He struck out six.

The young right-hander blanked Los Angeles for four innings before things unraveled in the fifth, as Anderson and the Atlanta bullpen issued five of their eight free passes on the night as part of an eight-run frame. It's the second straight outing in which he's failed to complete five innings, and Anderson will carry a 3.64 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 65:25 K:BB through 59.1 IP into his next start.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Pushed back in pitching schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson is no longer scheduled to start Thursday's series finale against the Nationals and will instead take the hill for Friday's series opener versus the Dodgers, Mark Bowman of reports.

Anderson will return to the mound on five days' rest after he labored through four innings in his most recent start May 29 against the Mets. He gave up a season-high-tying four runs on seven hits -- including two home runs -- and a walk while striking out six to take his second loss of the season. Atlanta will hope that Anderson can get back on track with the extra day of rest, though the 23-year-old will draw a tougher matchup while he moves back a day in the schedule.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Friday's start postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson won't start as scheduled Friday against the Mets since the game was postponed due to inclement weather, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear when the contest will be made up, though it won't occur via doubleheader this weekend. Anderson will take the mound Saturday in New York as Atlanta pushes back each of their starting pitchers.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Blanks Bucs in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (4-1) picked up the win Friday, giving up six hits over six scoreless innings in a 20-1 rout of the Pirates. He struck out six without walking a batter.

Atlanta piled up seven homers and 14 total extra-base hits as it gave Anderson a month's worth of run support in one evening. The right-hander delivered his third straight quality start and fifth of the season, and he'll take a 2.82 ERA and 53:21 K:BB through 51 innings into his next outing.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Posts another quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (3-1) earned the win Saturday against the Brewers after allowing one run on two hits and four walks while fanning four across six innings.

Anderson had a few command issues that resulted in four walks -- tying his season-high mark --but still limited the damage to just one run allowed and he's now allowed one or fewer runs in three of his last five appearances. The right-hander owns a 4.50 ERA and will try to build off this performance when he takes the ball next week at home against the Pirates.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Quality start in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson went six innings Saturday and registered a no-decision, allowing three runs, six hits and three walks with seven strikeouts in an 8-7 win. He was not part of the decision.

Anderson settled down after allowing three runs in the game's first two innings to pitch a quality game for Atlanta. It was a nice rebound from his last start, where he allowed four runs in four innings.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Takes first loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (2-1) allowed four runs on six hits and two walks over four innings Sunday, striking out five and taking the loss against Toronto.

Anderson really never got into a groove Sunday as he allowed runs in each of the second, third and fourth innings. It was his shortest outing of the year and first time allowing a run since April 15. The 23-year-old righty is now sporting a 3.27 ERA and 36:14 K:BB. He's expected to face the Phillies at home next weekend.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Extends scoreless streak in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (2-0) picked up the win in Tuesday's 6-0 victory over the Cubs, allowing one hit and one walk over seven scoreless innings while striking out eight.

The young right-hander is locked in right now, tossing 13.2 shutout innings over his last two starts to collect his first two wins of the year, Anderson also set a new season high with his eight punchouts Tuesday, making his exit after throwing 90 pitches (59 strikes). He'll take a 2.48 ERA and 31:12 K:BB through 29 innings into his next outing, likely to come May 4 on the road against the Nationals.

Braves' Ian Anderson: Blanks Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (1-0) allowed four hits and four walks while striking out four across 6.2 scoreless innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Yankees.

Anderson walked two batters in the first three innings but settled in to work effectively through the Yankees lineup. This was his longest outing of the season and the first time he's completed at least six innings. It's been an inconsistent start to the campaign for Anderson -- he entered the game having allowed seven earned runs across his last 10.1 innings -- though he's still managed to maintain a 3.27 ERA despite posting only a 23:11 K:BB across his first 22 frames. Anderson projects to take his next turn through the rotation Tuesday against Chicago.
