Drew Anderson: Cut loose by Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was released by Philadelphia on Monday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports.

Anderson was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Sunday, and he was later released by the club. He appeared in two games this season in the majors, surrendering five runs while striking out six and walking six over six innings of work.

Phillies' Drew Anderson: Loses roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies designated Anderson for assignment Sunday.

Anderson's removal from the 40-man roster frees up a spot for one of the three players whose contracts the Phillies selected from the minors as part of their September callups. The right-hander wasn't in the mix for a promotion himself after submitting a 5.77 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 48.1 innings with Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season.

Phillies' Drew Anderson: Short stay in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Anderson was recalled from Lehigh Valley prior to Thursday's game and will return there after not appearing in the series finale. The 25-year-old has appeared in two games and has allowed five runs over six innings across his three major-league stints this season.

Phillies' Drew Anderson: Joins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies recalled Anderson from Triple-A Lehigh Valley ahead of Thursday's series finale with the Cubs, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Anderson will assume Cole Irvin's spot on the active roster after the lefty was optioned to the minors following a disastrous start Wednesday. Though Irvin's departure creates a temporary opening in the rotation, Anderson will merely serve as a long-relief option while the Phillies ponder a replacement for Irvin the next time a fifth starter is required.

Phillies' Drew Anderson: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

Anderson is likely unavailable for a few days after tossing four innings out of the bullpen in Tuesday's loss, so the Phillies opted to swap him out for a fresh bullpen arm (Enyel De Los Santos). In two appearances for the big club, Anderson compiled a 7.50 ERA, 2.00 WHIP and 6:6 K:BB through six innings.

Phillies' Drew Anderson: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was called up by the Phillies on Saturday.

Anderson is involved in his third transaction of the week after spending a day on the big-league roster Monday. He'll likely fill a low-leverage role in the Phillies' bullpen.

Phillies' Drew Anderson: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

Anderson's stay on the big-league roster lasts just a single day. He didn't do anything wrong in his lone appearance, striking out two and walking two in two scoreless innings, but the Phillies need fresh arms in the bullpen after back-to-back extra-innings contests. Jerad Eickhoff was recalled in a corresponding move.

April 15, 2019 03:44 PM
Phillies' Drew Anderson: Joins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was promoted from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Anderson will take the place of David Robertson (elbow), who was sent to the injured list in a corresponding move. The right-hander has primarily worked as a starter throughout his career and should offer length out of the Phillies' bullpen during his time with the big club.

March 21, 2019 12:44 PM
Phillies' Drew Anderson: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Anderson has a poor 7.80 ERA in 15 career major-league innings, though he looked quite good in camp, allowing just a single run in 12.2 innings while recording a 12:2 K:BB. If he carries that strong performance into the minor-league season, he could push for starts later in the year.

Phillies' Drew Anderson: Adds cutter to repertoire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson is adding a cutter to his repertoire this spring, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

If Anderson's spring stats are anything to go by, early returns have certainly been encouraging, as the 24-year-old has allowed just one run on six hits in 12.2 innings. He already threw three secondaries (a slider, a curveball and a changeup) at least 10 percent of the time in 15 big-league innings, but he may need another pitch to get over the hump. Anderson is on the 40-man roster and could get chances to start should injuries strike the Phillies' rotation this season.

Phillies' Drew Anderson: Called up by Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was called up by the Phillies on Tuesday.

The Phillies are carrying 15 relievers on their expanded September roster, so opportunities for Anderson are likely to be limited. He hasn't shown any reason to believe he'll be much of a fantasy asset if he does get an unexpected opportunity, as he's allowed 10 earned runs in 8.1 career innings.

July 26, 2018 04:29 PM
Phillies' Drew Anderson: Optioned to Lehigh Valley
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was sent back down to Triple-A Lehigh Valley following Wednesday's game.

Anderson made his second appearance at the big-league level this season during Tuesday's 16-inning game against the Dodgers, in which he recorded a spotless inning of relief. He will return to the Triple-A level, where he's logged a 4.02 ERA and 1.14 WHIP across 65 innings in 2018. The Phillies will make a subsequent move prior to Thursday's series opener in Cincinnati -- a roster spot is needed for Ranger Suarez, who will be called up for his major-league debut.

July 24, 2018 05:00 PM
Phillies' Drew Anderson: Back up with Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

Anderson has appeared once for the Phillies this season as a starter, but appears to be up as a reliever this time around. Ranger Suarez is expected to start Thursday when the Phillies need a spot starter against the Reds. Anderson will take the long-relief role vacated by Yacksel Rios, who was optioned to Lehigh Valley in a corresponding move.

Phillies' Drew Anderson: Shipped back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (0-1) tossed five innings, allowing four runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out four as he picked up the loss Sunday against Pittsburgh. He was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley following his outing.

Anderson made it through the first three innings with just one run allowed, but the wheels fell off in the fourth when he surrendered three runs on a pair of doubles. Given his disappointing outing, the Phillies have elected to send Anderson back to the minors after his first major-league action of 2018. A corresponding move will be made prior to Monday's series opener against the Mets.

July 8, 2018 09:24 AM
Phillies' Drew Anderson: Recalled ahead of Sunday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley in advance of his scheduled start Sunday against the Pirates, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

The Phillies optioned reliever Yacksel Rios to Triple-A to make room on the active roster for Anderson, who will take the hill for his first MLB start. Over 10 outings for Lehigh Valley this season, the 24-year-old has managed a 4.15 ERA and 41:14 K:BB across 52 innings. If Anderson performs well Sunday, he could earn a second start Friday against the Marlins, assuming Vince Velasquez (forearm) isn't ready to return from the 10-day disabled list by that point.

Phillies' Drew Anderson: Will be called up to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson will be recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to start Sunday's game against the Pirates, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

The Phillies require an additional starter due to their doubleheader with the Mets on Monday and are opting to give Zach Eflin an additional day of rest after leaving his last start with a blister. Anderson has a 4.15 ERA and 1.13 WHIP with a .228 opponent batting average in 10 starts with the IronPigs this season.

Phillies' Drew Anderson: Returns from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (forearm) was activated from the 7-day disabled list and started Tuesday in Triple-A Lehigh Valley's 4-3 loss to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He covered 4.2 innings and gave up three runs on four hits and no walks while striking out three.

After failing to win a spot in the Philadelphia rotation coming out of spring training, Anderson reported to Triple-A Lehigh Valley but was shut down with a right forearm strain before making any appearances for the affiliate. Anderson spent the subsequent five weeks recovering from the injury before being cleared for his season debut Tuesday. He was predictably rusty while covering only 61 pitches in the outing, but Anderson should receive a longer leash the next time he takes the hill for Lehigh Valley.

Phillies' Drew Anderson: Will return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (forearm) will be activated from the 7-day disabled list prior to Sunday's start with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Anderson has been sidelined for the entirety of the 2018 season while recovering from a right forearm strain. The 24-year-old spent a majority of last season at the Double-A level, compiling a 3.59 ERA and 1.13 WHIP over 107.2 innings with Reading. As a member of the Phillies' 40-man roster, there's a chance Anderson will earn a promotion later on this season if he's able to find success with the IronPigs.

May 5, 2018 12:12 PM
Phillies' Drew Anderson: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (forearm) resumed throwing and could return to the rotation for Triple-A Lehigh Valley in May, The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

Anderson suffered a forearm strain in mid-April. That's a diagnosis which often precedes a more serious injury, but the 24-year-old seems to have avoided a major issue in this instance. Anderson is a member of the Phillies' 40-man roster, so he's a good bet for some major-league innings later this season, at least as a September callup, though he doesn't project as much more than a swingman.

April 13, 2018 01:04 PM
Phillies' Drew Anderson: Placed on disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was placed on the 7-day disabled list Wednesday with a right forearm strain, The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

Anderson reached the big leagues for the first time in 2017, giving up seven runs (six earned) in 2.1 innings. He was set to begin the year with Triple-A Lehigh Valley and could return at some point later in the year as pitching depth, provided that he's healthy. A forearm strain is sometimes the initial diagnosis that precedes a more serious injury, though there have been no reports at this point that this particular issue is a major one.
