Anderson was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley after Saturday's game, Mike Cranston of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Anderson allowed five runs on four hits over 1.1 innings in Saturday's 17-2 loss to the Cubs. He goes down to make room for Nick Pivetta, who will start Sunday against the Cubs.
Anderson was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.
Anderson was promoted to Triple-A on Tuesday, but is headed up to the big club without having pitched an inning for Lehigh Valley. Anderson has started 21 games at Double-A Reading this season, during which he's notched a 3.59 ERA and 1.12 WHIP. However, the Phillies may opt to use Anderson from the bullpen in order to ease him into the majors. In a corresponding move, Cameron Perkins was optioned to Lehigh Valley.
Anderson was promoted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
In 107.1 innings this season with Double-A Reading, Anderson posted a 3.59 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 19.3 strikeout percentage. Anderson, who has been used as a starter so far in the minors, made his major-league debut out of the bullpen earlier this month.
Anderson made his major-league debut Tuesday, allowing one earned run on two hits over one inning. He also managed to strike out Mike Trout. The Phillies will replace him in the bullpen with Edubray Ramos.
Anderson was promoted to the majors from Double-A Reading on Tuesday, Matt Gelb of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
With the Phillies trading another bullpen arm away at the trade deadline, Anderson will head to the majors to provide another fresh arm. The 23-year-old acted as a starter with Reading, and although his overall numbers at the level aren't fantastic, he's been excellent during June and July, compiling a 2.93 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP across nine starts in that span. He'll likely work in long relief at first, although he could make a spot start down the road if need be.
