Brett Anderson pitched relatively well in Thursday's no-decision against the Rockies, yielding four runs on six hits over five innings.
This was Anderson's first start since hitting the disabled list with a blister near the end of August. He struck out two and walked one on the evening. The majority of the damage on his line touched home in a three-run second inning. Anderson has made three starts this season and has given up at least four runs in every one of them. He is scheduled to make one more start this season, on the road against the Padres next Wednesday. Fri, Sep 23, 2016 01:08:00 AM

Dodgers activated LHP Brett Anderson from the 15-day disabled list.

The veteran southpaw has been sidelined the past few weeks due to a blister on his pitching hand. He has made just two starts for the Dodgers this season, allowing 11 earned runs in only four innings of work (24.75 ERA). He can be avoided for fantasy purposes on Thursday.

Brett Anderson (finger) will start for the Dodgers on Thursday at home against the Rockies.

It will be just his third appearance for Los Angeles in 2016. Anderson threw five innings of one-run ball Friday in a rehab start with Triple-A Oklahoma City, but he's not a very trustworthy fantasy streaming option against a good Colorado offense. The left-hander has officially yielded 11 earned runs in four major league innings this season.

Brett Anderson (finger) pitched well in Friday's rehab start with Triple-A Oklahoma City, allowing one run on three hits over five innings.

The southpaw punched out five and didn't walk a batter. Given the depth of the injuries in the rotation, Anderson could work his way into the postseason mix if he pitches well once rejoining the Dodgers next week.

Brett Anderson (finger) will make a rehab start with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday.

It'll be Game 3 of the five-game Pacific Coast League championship series against the Triple-A affiliate of the Padres. Anderson has made just two starts this season for the Dodgers and been lit up in both, but he'll keep trying to make himself an option. What currently has him sidelined is a blister on his left hand.

The blister issue on Brett Anderson's left index finger resurfaced during a rehab appearance Saturday with High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Saturday.

He'll be re-evaluated on Sunday. With other Dodgers pitchers getting healthy, Anderson isn't looking like a great bet to make any more starts this season.

Brett Anderson (blister) is scheduled to pitch in a minor league rehab game at High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Saturday.

He'll work in relief of fellow recovering starter Clayton Kershaw. Anderson is expected to pitch five innings, which equates to about 75-80 pitches. It sounds as though he'll need at least one more outing after this one before he's deemed ready to rejoin the Dodgers rotation.

Brett Anderson (blister) tossed a four-inning simulated game on Tuesday afternoon.

Anderson has been on the disabled list since August 23 with a blister on his left index finger. He has a ridiculous 24.75 ERA and 4.25 WHIP in two starts this season with the Dodgers and can go on being ignored in standard fantasy leagues when he is activated, probably in about two weeks.

Dodgers placed LHP Brett Anderson on the 15-day disabled list with a blister on his left index finger.

The blister forced him from his start Saturday against the Reds and he was unable to throw his slider during a side session on Tuesday. He's also been dealing with back and wrist injuries. Anderson holds a hideous 24.75 ERA and 4.25 WHIP through two starts this season with Los Angeles.

Brett Anderson (finger, back, wrist) is not expected to start Thursday versus the Giants.

Anderson's back and wrist are feeling fine, but a blister on his left index finger is affecting his slider and that's an important pitch for the 28-year-old southpaw. There should be something more official Wednesday. Anderson has a 24.75 ERA and 4.25 WHIP in two starts this season with Los Angeles.

Brett Anderson left Saturday's game against the Reds with a blister on his left index finger.

He got lit up for nine hits and six runs before exiting in the fourth inning. Anderson's teammate Rich Hill has been dealing with a blister for over a month so there's a good chance Anderson will miss at least his next start. The left-hander has struggled mightily since returning from back surgery. In two starts, he's contributed a ghastly 24.75 ERA with a WHIP north of four.

Brett Anderson (wrist) has been cleared to start Saturday in Cincinnati.

Anderson left his season debut Sunday against the Pirates with a sprained left wrist, but he played catch Tuesday without issue. The left-hander was charged with five runs on five hits and a walk over just one inning in that outing versus Pittsburgh and probably shouldn't be trusted in standard fantasy leagues this weekend at Great American Small Park.

Brett Anderson played catch Tuesday and had good range of motion in his left wrist.

Anderson sprained the wrist Sunday in his season debut against the Pirates. He wound up being charged with five runs on five hits and a walk over just one inning of work. The left-hander is hoping to be ready for his next turn in the Dodgers' rotation, but it's difficult to recommend him as a fantasy option no matter his health status.
Tue, Aug 16, 2016 04:10:00 PM

Brett Anderson was diagnosed with a mild left wrist sprain which forced him to leave Sunday's season debut against the Pirates.

It's unclear at this point whether or not he'll require a return trip to the disabled list. The Dodgers will more than likely wait and see how he feels after a day or two before making a decision on his status, but fantasy owners shouldn't count on him being available next week.

Brett Anderson was forced to leave Sunday's start against the Pirates with a left wrist injury.

Anderson suffered the injury while lunging to tag a runner at first base in the first inning. He wasn't sharp while on the hill, allowing five runs on five hits in his one inning of work. It's unclear if he'll require a return to the disabled list. Expect an update from the Dodgers on his status after Sunday's game.
