Rangers' Drew Anderson: Effective in long relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson allowed a hit and a walk with two strikeouts over three scoreless innings in Friday's 8-5 win over Baltimore.

The only real negative from the right-hander's long-relief appearance was that he didn't get the win, since Texas didn't pull ahead until the ninth inning. Anderson has allowed just one run in seven innings since returning from the COVID-19 list. He's pitched to a solid 3.50 ERA and 1.22 WHIP across 18 innings. He could piggyback with Spencer Howard again versus Cleveland next week.

Rangers' Drew Anderson: Excels in piggyback role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was credited with his first win of the season in Saturday's 2-1 victory over the White Sox after allowing a run on one hit and two walks while striking out a batter in three innings of relief.

Making his second appearance since being reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list earlier in the week, Anderson served as the primary pitcher behind starter Spencer Howard after A.J. Alexy handled those duties in Howard's previous turn through the rotation. Both Anderson and Howard (three strikeouts over three scoreless innings) fared well as part of a tandem, so the Rangers could look to keep the two pitchers on the same schedule the next time Howard's turn comes up. Howard tentatively lines up to take the hill Sept. 24 in Baltimore.

Rangers' Drew Anderson: Back from COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (undisclosed) was activated from the COVID-19 injured list prior to Tuesday's game against the Astros.

Anderson has been on the COVID-19 IL since Aug. 23, though the club never confirmed whether or not he tested positive for the virus. The right-hander was most recently working as a starter before being sidelined, but he seems more than likely to serve as a reliever, at least during the current turn through the rotation.

Rangers' Drew Anderson: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (undisclosed) allowed one hit and one walk while striking out one over two scoreless innings for Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday.

Anderson tossed 26 pitches in the first outing of his rehab assignment. He had been used as a starter, a tandem starter and long reliever during his short time up with the team prior to landing on the COVID-19 injured list. It's unclear what the Rangers have planned for him when he returns.

Rangers' Drew Anderson: Rehab begins Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (undisclosed) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

The Rangers never announced the reason for Anderson's placement on the COVID-19 injured list, but the fact that he's been out for two weeks suggests he likely tested positive for the virus himself. He joined Round Rock for workouts Monday but won't officially begin a rehab assignment until Saturday.

Rangers' Drew Anderson: Goes on COVID IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers placed Anderson on the COVID-19-related injured list Monday, Chris Halicke of reports.

Anderson was one of three players to land on the list Monday and one of four players to be deactivated within the past four days due to COVID-19-related reasons. At this time, the Rangers aren't disclosing which of the four players, if any, have tested positive for the virus, though Chris Halicke relays that Anderson and Mike Foltynewicz are symptomatic, while infielders Brock Holt and Charlie Culberson have experienced mild symptoms. Assuming Anderson's condition doesn't take a turn for the worse, he should be ready to rejoin the Rangers once he clears all protocols, but he won't be available to serve as a piggyback starter behind Spencer Howard during Texas' series in Cleveland this week. Texas called up Wes Benjamin from Triple-A Round Rock in a corresponding move, and if he goes unused out of the bullpen Monday and Tuesday, he could work behind Howard on Wednesday.

Rangers' Drew Anderson: Works in tandem with Spencer Howard
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson tossed five innings of long relief in Thursday's 9-8 loss to the Mariners, giving up one run on five hits and one walk while striking out three. He didn't factor into the decision in the appearance.

Taylor Hearn had worked as a tandem starter with Howard in both of the latter's first two turns through the Texas rotation, but after Hearn earned his own spot in the team's six-man rotation, Anderson stepped in to piggyback Howard. The Rangers appear content to cap Howard at around 3-to-4 innings in each of his starts, so Anderson should continue to be called upon to work in bulk relief behind him, especially after the 27-year-old right-hander pitched effectively versus Seattle.

Rangers' Drew Anderson: Early exit in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (0-1) took the loss in Saturday's 12-3 rout at the hands of the A's, coughing up five runs on four hits and two walks over two-plus innings. He didn't strike out a batter.

The 27-year-old kept Oakland off the board for two innings before the wheels came off, as the A's piled up seven runs in total in the third. Anderson had begun his tenure with Texas by tossing four scoreless innings over two appearances, but his ERA immediately spiked to 7.50 after this outing. The Rangers have been deploying tandems in their rotation of late, so Anderson could well remain in a starting or long relief role despite this performance.

Rangers' Drew Anderson: Named Saturday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson will be the starting pitcher for Saturday's game against the Athletics.

Anderson has totaled four scoreless innings across two appearances since being recalled July 30, though he failed to record a strikeout while working around five hits. He served as a starter during his time with Triple-A Round Rock, but as he's been working out of the bullpen with the big club, the 27-year-old hasn't logged more than three innings in an appearance since July 24. With that in mind, the right-hander may not remain on the mound too long Saturday.

Rangers' Drew Anderson: Contract selected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson's contract was selected by the Rangers on Friday.

The 27-year-old owns a career 9.67 ERA in 22.1 innings at the big-league level. He's spent the year with Triple-A Round Rock, where he owns a strong 3.15 ERA and 1.20 WHIP.

Rangers' Drew Anderson: Joining Rangers for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson signed with Texas as a non-roster invitee Tuesday.

Anderson appeared in just one game for the White Sox in 2020, bringing him to a total of nine relief appearances and one start over the course of his four-year career. He's shown very little at the highest level in his 22.1 innings, struggling to a 9.67 ERA and 1.97 WHIP, and his 4.73 career ERA in 159.2 Triple-A innings hardly suggests he's on the verge of a breakout.

Drew Anderson: Released by White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was released by the White Sox on Thursday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports

Anderson was sent to the team's alternate training site Aug. 11 but will now will become a free agent. He appeared in just one game for Chicago, allowing six runs on four hits and two walks against Cleveland on Aug. 8.

White Sox's Drew Anderson: Sent to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson cleared waivers and was outrighted to the White Sox's alternate training site Tuesday, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The 26-year-old was designated for assignment by the team over the weekend, but he'll remain in the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. Anderson was on the 40-man roster for one day and allowed six runs over 1.1 innings during his debut with the team.

White Sox's Drew Anderson: Cast off 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox designated Anderson for assignment Sunday.

He'll lose his spot on the 40-man roster and cede his spot on the active roster to Jose Ruiz, who was recalled from the White Sox's alternate training site. Anderson was roughed up out of the bullpen in his team debut Saturday against the Indians, giving up six runs on four hits and two walks over 1.1 innings.

White Sox's Drew Anderson: Contract purchased by White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson's contract was purchased by the White Sox on Saturday.

Anderson was in camp with the White Sox as a non-roster invitee, but he'll join the 40-man roster after Brady Lail was designated for assignment in a corresponding move. The right-hander made two major-league appearances with the Phillies last season, allowing five runs while posting a 6:6 K:BB over six innings. He should play a low-leverage role in Chicago's bullpen.

White Sox's Drew Anderson: Earns spot on 60-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox announced Monday that Anderson will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.

Anderson, who attended spring training as a non-roster invitee, was one of 44 players named to the club's summer camp, which begins Friday. The right-hander is expected to serve as a long reliever for the White Sox after posting a 5.77 ERA and 40:27 K:BB across 48.1 innings over 11 starts with the Phillies' Triple-A affiliate in Lehigh Valley in 2019.

White Sox's Drew Anderson: Signs with White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson signed with Chicago as a non-roster invitee Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Anderson spent parts of three seasons in the majors with the Phillies, recording a career 7.71 ERA, 1.81 WHIP and 19 strikeouts across 21 innings. Despite the change of scenery, the right-hander will likely begin his 2020 campaign in the minors before he's ready to return to a major-league bullpen.

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

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