Chase Anderson allowed two runs over four innings in Saturday's Cactus League matchup with the Giants.

Anderson had a hiccup in the first inning, serving up a two-run homer to Brandon Belt, but he recovered to blank the Giants over the next three innings. The right-hander scattered six hits on the evening. After a good debut in 2014, Anderson has an inside track on a starting job with the Snakes this year.

Chase Anderson struck out three over 2 2/3 scoreless frames in Monday's Cactus League tie against the White Sox.

The right-hander permitted two hits, walked one and got his pitch count up to 56. Anderson is technically competing for a rotation spot this spring, but D'Backs general manager Dave Stewart has indicated that the righty would really have to mess up in order to not break camp as part of the starting five.
Mar 9 - 8:00 PM

Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said of Chase Anderson on Thursday that "you have to strongly consider him as part of our rotation."

Only Josh Collmenter's and Jeremy Hellickson's names are etched in stone as part of the rotation, but it sounds like we can probably at least write Anderson's name down in ink. The righty pitched pretty well for the D'Backs in 2014, posting a 4.01 ERA with 105 strikeouts across 114 1/3 innings. There are a host of players that will compete for the final two spots in the rotation, including Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa, Robbie Ray, Vidal Nuño, Trevor Cahill and Randall Delgado.

Chase Anderson was hit hard in Friday's loss to the Rockies, surrendering six runs on nine hits over his five innings.

Anderson walked a pair and punched out five on the night. It was one of the roughest outings of the season for the 26-year-old rookie right-hander who sports a 4.01 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 105/40 K/BB ratio over his 114 1/3 innings. He'll take his final turn of the season on Friday against the Cardinals.

Chase Anderson will be shut down for the season after Friday's start in Colorado.

He's already thrown 148 1/3 frames between the majors and minors, which is easily a career high. Anderson has been one of the few bright spots for the D'Backs this season, sporting a solid 3.70 ERA and 100/38 K/BB ratio over 109 1/3 innings. The 26-year-old can surely be penciled into a rotation spot for next season.

Chase Anderson was lit up by the Nationals on Tuesday, surrendering six runs in two-plus innings.

Anderson had given up nine runs total in his previous six starts, so one bad outing shouldn't wreck anyone's confidence in him. All six runs tonight came in the third and none were the result of extra-base hits; he allowed five singles and a walk.

Chase Anderson went home with a no-decision on Thursday, allowing three runs in six innings, as the D'Backs fell in 10 innings to the Marlins by a 5-4 margin.

Anderson entered the night having allowed two or fewer runs in five consecutive starts. That obviously ended on Thursday, but he limited the damage that could have been caused by the nine hits and two walks he allowed. The right-hander also struck out five in the effort. The 26-year-old has a sparkling 3.16 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, and 74/28 K/BB ratio. He'll go up against the Nationals on the road on Tuesday next.

Chase Anderson turned in another gem Friday, holding the Rockies to one run over six innings and striking out six in his seventh win.

Anderson has allowed a total of six runs over his last five starts, though a lack of run support has left him with just two wins during that span. The Diamondbacks did manage to get him the victory tonight, with Miguel Montero's first-inning three-run homer leading the way. Anderson's ERA stands at 3.06 through 14 starts.

Chase Anderson lasted six innings against the Tigers on Tuesday, scattering five hits while striking out five and walking three.

The damage came on a first inning Miguel Cabrera RBI single and a third inning wild pitch that allowed Austin Jackson to score. Otherwise, Anderson was effective. While the game ended up being decided by the bullpen, this marks back-to-back quality starts for Anderson, whose ERA sits at a solid 3.58. He'll try to keep it going against the Reds in his next outing.
