Giants' Shaun Anderson: Recalled by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was recalled by the Giants on Friday.

Anderson threw 10.1 innings of relief earlier in the year but didn't find much success, posting a 5.23 ERA, 1.84 WHIP and an 11:11 K:BB. He'll return for the stretch one, with Rico Garcia optioned in a corresponding move.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Optioned to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was optioned to the Giants' alternate training site Wednesday.

Anderson has had mixed results as a middle reliever to begin the season, and he'll attempt to generate more consistency while working at the team's alternate training site. During 13 appearances this season, the right-hander posted a 5.23 ERA and 1.84 WHIP over 10.1 innings. Outfielder Joey Rickard's contract was selected in a corresponding move.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Strikes out side
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson struck out the side in the seventh inning Saturday against the Dodgers.

He did not allow a baserunner and threw 10 of 17 pitches for strikes. Tony Watson followed him and got two outs, then Tyler Rogers got one out and Trevor Gott recorded the save in the ninth inning, but not before giving up an earned run. None of the three relievers who followed Anderson recorded a strikeout, so while he did not get the save opportunity, he was the most impressive of San Francisco's relievers while stymying the best offense in the National League.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Rejoins big-league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants recalled Anderson from Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday.

San Francisco previously optioned Anderson to the minors in March, but he'll have a spot in the big-league bullpen waiting for him thanks in part to the expanded 30-man roster for MLB teams. Anderson has mostly worked as a starter since turning professional in 2016, but he showed some intriguing skills while working in relief with the Giants last season and is expected to factor into the middle or late innings to begin 2020. Over his 13.1 innings out of the bullpen in 2019, Anderson struck out more than a quarter of the hitters he faced.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Anderson worked as both a starter and reliever in 2019 as he made his major-league debut, but the team was reportedly stretching him out as a starter during spring training. However, the 25-year-old struggled with a 19.29 ERA and 2.36 WHIP over 4.2 innings. While it was a small sample size, he's on track to begin the season developing more in the minors.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Stretching out as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson is stretching out as a starter in spring training, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Anderson finished 2019 working out of the bullpen and even picked up a couple saves, but he's set to return to starting duties this season. Overall, the 25-year-old had a 5.44 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 70:38 K:BB in 28 appearances (16 starts) last year in his first taste of the majors. Tony Watson is the only established late-inning option remaining for the Giants following the departures of Will Smith and Mark Melancon, and with Reyes Moronta (shoulder) out until later in the season.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Moves down to setup duties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson fired two scoreless innings with a walk and three strikeouts in Tuesday's 7-6 extra-innings win over the Red Sox.

Anderson picked up a pair of saves while regular closer Will Smith was nursing a sore back, but the latter returned this past weekend and reclaimed his job. While his run as closer was short-lived, the 24-year-old may have carved out a new role as a reliever next season based on his strong results in seven appearances out of the pen this month (3.12 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 14.5 K/9).

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Notches second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson tossed a scoreless inning Friday, allowing a hit and striking out one to earn the save in a 1-0 win over Miami.

With regular closer Will Smith (back) still sidelined, Anderson successfully protected the narrow lead. He induced a double play to erase the hit before striking out pinch hitter Austin Dean to finish the game. Anderson will likely be called on for more save chances until Smith is good to go.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Picks up first career save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson picked up the save against the Pirates on Tuesday, throwing 1.1 scoreless innings to close out the Giants' 5-4 victory. He struck out two and walked one.

Regular closer Will Smith was unavailable with back inflammation, so Anderson got the call to protect a one-run lead, and did so successfully. Anderson could soak up a couple more save opportunities in the short term, but Smith will slide back into the role once he's healthy.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Allows run in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson allows a run on a hit and two walks in two-thirds of an inning in Saturday's 10-5 win over the Athletics.

The Giants held a six-run lead when Anderson entered in the eighth inning, and he was tagged for an RBI double by Josh Phegley during the appearance. It was his first appearance since Aug. 7 after missing time with a finger injury. Anderson is expected to pitch out of the bullpen going forward. He owns a 5.40 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 17 outings, the previous 16 coming as a starter.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Shifting to long relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manger Bruce Bochy said Anderson will move to the bullpen and work as a long reliever, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Anderson was activated off the 10-day injured list Saturday and was expected to rejoin the starting rotation, but he'll instead shift to a bullpen role. The 24-year-old has a 5.33 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 55:31 K:BB in 16 starts (82.2 innings), and he figures to be one of the top options for any potential spot starts.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Reinstated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (finger) was activated from the injured list Saturday.

Anderson was placed on the injured list on Aug. 8 due to a blister. However, he completed a rehab start and is now ready to rejoin the big-league rotation. It's unclear when he will make his first start, though Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle speculated that he'll start either Monday or Tuesday.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Rehabbing with Sacramento
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (blister) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Despite having last pitched Aug. 7, Anderson will still need at least one rehab start before rejoining the big-league rotation. Tyler Beede is being given at least one more start in the rotation Tuesday, but if he continues to struggle, Anderson could replace him next week against the Diamondbacks.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Will need rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (blister) will require a rehab start before returning to the big-league rotation, Maria I. Guardado of reports.

The Giants are giving Tyler Beede at least one more start amid his struggles, so they can afford to have Anderson go on a rehab outing before slotting him back in, perhaps at some point in the final week of August.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (blister) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

He will be eligible to return Aug. 18, so he may only miss one turn in the rotation with the blister issue. Dereck Rodriguez lines up perfectly to start Tuesday's game against the A's in place of Anderson.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Exits early due to blister
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was removed from Wednesday's game against the Nationals after three innings due to a blister, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. He allowed four runs on four hits and three walks while striking out two in a losing effort prior to exiting.

Anderson carried a lackluster 5.08 ERA and 1.52 WHIP through 15 starts (79.2 innings) into Wednesday's outing, so the blister can hardly be blamed for his poor results. It's possible the right-hander could miss a turn through the rotation as a result of the injury, but more information should become available following his normal between-starts bullpen in the coming days.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Settles for no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson pitched five innings Friday, allowing three runs on eight hits and two walks while taking a no-decision in a 5-4 loss to the Rockies.

Anderson didn't do himself any favors, allowing 10 baserunners for the fourth time in 15 starts this season. The right-hander also failed to strike out a batter for the first time this season. The 24-year-old has a 5.08 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 79.2 innings this year. He'll look to improve on a 3-3 record in his next start, scheduled for Wednesday versus the Nationals.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Next outing pushed back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was scheduled to make his next start Thursday against the Phillies, but his outing will be pushed back, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The Giants have yet to announce when Anderson's next outing will take place, though he figures to take the mound sometime over the weekend. In 14 starts this season for the Giants, he's accrued a 5.06 ERA and 1.49 WHIP with a 53:26 K:BB across 74.2 innings.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: Fans seven in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (3-3) took the loss Saturday as the Giants fell 5-1 to the Padres, allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks over five-plus innings while striking out seven.

The right-hander has now failed to win a game or last more than five innings in any of his last five starts, going 0-1 with a 7.71 ERA, 1.80 WHIP and 24:10 K:BB through 23.1 innings over that stretch. If the Giants do add reinforcements at the trade deadline, Anderson could well find himself bumped from the rotation, but for now his next outing is scheduled for Thursday in Philadelphia.

Giants' Shaun Anderson: No-decision against Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson threw five innings in a no-decision against the Cubs on Monday, giving up three earned runs on three hits, striking out five, and walking two as the Giants eventually prevailed 5-4.

The right-hander yielded home runs to Robel Garcia and Kyle Schwarber but managed to escape with a respectable final stat line, bouncing back after getting knocked around by the Rockies for five earned in his last start. Anderson now sports a 4.91 ERA, a 1.46 WHIP and a 46:24 K:BB in 2019.
