Brett Anderson (finger) gave up one run over 5 2/3 innings Monday in his second minor league rehab start with Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Anderson allowed six hits and one walk while striking out four batters. The oft-injured southpaw now has a 0.96 ERA and 8/2 K/BB ratio in 9 1/3 innings over his first two rehab outings. He's scheduled to throw 85 pitches in his next start, though the Rockies have yet to decide whether it will be in the majors or the minors. We should know more in the next couple of days.

Brett Anderson (finger) threw 3 2/3 scoreless innings Wednesday in his rehab debut at Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Anderson struck out four and yielded just two hits in the impressive outing. He threw 39 of his 59 pitches for strikes and touched 90 mph with his fastball. The left-hander could be an option for the Rockies' starting rotation shortly after the All-Star break. He's been out since mid-April with a fractured left index finger.
Jul 3 - 8:17 AM

Brett Anderson (finger) is scheduled to make his first minor league rehab start at Triple-A Colorado Springs on Wednesday.

Anderson will surely need multiple starts at the minor league level before becoming an option to rejoin the Rockies. Look for him to return at some point around the All-Star break as long as he continues to progress.
Jun 27 - 7:48 PM

Brett Anderson (finger) threw a successful 30-pitch live batting practice session Tuesday.

Anderson will throw another live BP session Friday and then a bullpen session Sunday. The left-hander thinks he'll be ready for a rehab assignment after that. "I felt like I could have gone longer today, which is a good sign," Anderson said. "I didn't have any fatigue, especially here in Denver. I feel good. I'll keep progressing and take it one day at a time."

Brett Anderson (finger) will throw live batting practice on Tuesday.

Anderson has been slow to recover from a fractured left index finger but appears to finally be making some real progress. He'll have to build back up his stamina, so a return before the end of the first half might not be doable.
Jun 22 - 3:09 PM

Rockies trainer Keith Dugger said Tuesday that Brett Anderson (finger) has a shot to rejoin the rotation in the first week of July.

The Rockies gave Anderson a 4-6 week timetable when he went down with a fractured left index finger in mid-April, so obviously he hasn't progressed as quickly as hoped. But, he did get the pins taken out of his finger this week and should begin a throwing program soon.

Brett Anderson had the pins removed from his surgically-repaired left index finger Monday.

Anderson will now be able to ramp up his rehab work. The left-hander has been on the shelf since mid-April and is obviously still at least a few weeks away from rejoining the Rockies' rotation.
May 26 - 8:41 PM

Rockies transferred LHP Brett Anderson from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

It's merely a procedural move to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Chris Martin who was recalled from Triple-A on Friday. Anderson, sidelined with a fractured left index finger, will not be eligible to return until mid-June.
Apr 25 - 7:35 PM

Brett Anderson underwent successful surgery Thursday on his fractured left index finger.

Anderson had four pins inserted into the broken finger to stabilize it and allow for proper healing. The left-hander has already been placed on the disabled list and is expected to be out for the next 4-6 weeks.
Apr 17 - 3:28 PM

Rockies placed LHP Brett Anderson on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 13, with a fractured left index finger.

Anderson suffered the injury on Saturday during an at-bat. He will have surgery this week to insert some pins in the finger and is expected to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks. Franklin Morales will go back into the rotation in Anderson's place.
Apr 14 - 6:19 PM

Brett Anderson will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks with a broken left index finger.

It's a tough break for the oft-injured 26-year-old who posted a 3.60 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 5/2 K/BB ratio over 15 innings in his first three starts. Franklin Morales will replace him in the Rockies rotation.
Apr 13 - 7:23 PM

Brett Anderson (finger) could be placed on the disabled list.

Anderson was initially diagnosed with a bruised left index finger after having to leave Saturday's game with the injury, but he's feeling worse Sunday than expected. The southpaw will undergo an X-ray Sunday and possibly an MRI Monday before the Rockies decide whether they need to make a roster move.
Apr 13 - 1:51 PM

Brett Anderson has been diagnosed with a contusion on his left index finger.

Anderson suffered the injury Saturday during an at-bat and had to leave his start against the Giants after three scoreless innings. He is a left-hander, so it's possible that the contusion will force him to miss a turn in the Colorado starting rotation.
Apr 12 - 5:41 PM

Brett Anderson left his start Saturday against the Giants after injuring his hand during an at-bat.

Anderson had allowed just one hit -- and no runs -- over three solid innings before injuring himself on an awkward swing that resulted in a groundout. He was replaced by Tommy Kahnle. The Rockies should provide a status update shortly on the oft-injured left-hander.
