Anderson (9-8) gave up three runs on six hits in a loss to the Reds on Tuesday, recording five strikeouts and two walks in 3.2 innings.
Anderson gave up four extra-base hits in the short outing, including a two-run homer by Jose Peraza in the first inning. This was Anderson's shortest outing since May 26 -- in which he went 3.2 innings in a no-decision against the Mets -- and it's the fourth time in his last eight starts that he hasn't made it through five innings. The 30-year-old still has a moderate 3.93 ERA to go along with a 1.19 WHIP and a 128:57 K:BB in 158 innings this season. His next scheduled start will be a matchup against the Cardinals in St. Louis on Monday.
Lorenzen allowed one unearned run on one hit in a no-decision against the Brewers on Tuesday, striking out three and walking one in four innings.
Making his first start of the year, Lorenzen threw 52 pitches (36 strikes) and pitched very well against one of the better hitting lineups in the league. In 43 appearances the right-hander has a 3.03 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and a 52:30 K:BB in 71.1 innings this season. It's uncertain at this point if Lorenzen will make another start or head back to the bullpen.
Nilsson stopped 24 of 28 shots in Vancouver's 4-2 defeat at the hands of Edmonton on Tuesday.
Nilsson, 28, started 24 games for the Canucks a season ago, going 7-14-4 along the way. He by all accounts will be the team's primary backup behind Jacob Markstrom this upcoming season but beyond that, who knows what the future holds for the Swedish netminder. It's probably best to steer clear of Nilsson in fantasy.
Talbot made one highlight-reel save that would've been in contention for Save of the Year had happened in the regular season. The 31-year-old is coming off a down year, much like his team, and will be looking to bounce back in 2018-19. Having started 140 games over the last two seasons, expect Talbot to be treated to another heavy workload this upcoming season, considering the absence of a reliable backup behind him.
Bibeau, 24, spent last season with AHL San Jose, appearing in 43 games and posting a 23-14-2 record. It's unlikely he cracks the Opening Night roster and more than likely will be tasked with AHL duty to begin the 2018-19 season. Bibeau will need to impress in camp to have any shot at making the big club. His last NHL action came in 2016-17, as a member of the Maple Leafs.
