Chase Anderson (oblique) won't be clear to throw off a mound until the Brewers' next homestand which begins July 28.
That would be exactly a month after he suffered a strained left oblique. Anderson was given a 4-6 week timetable at the time, so it would appear he's more likely to make it back toward the end of that. The righty has been excellent for the Brewers this season with a 2.89 ERA and 85/27 K/BB ratio over 90 1/3 innings. Jul 17 - 5:56 PM

Chase Anderson (oblique) is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

Anderson underwent an MRI on Friday and met with team doctors to determine a potential timetable for his return. Fantasy owners realistically shouldn't expect to have him back until the middle of August.
Jul 1 - 1:30 PM

Brewers placed RHP Chase Anderson on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

Anderson suffered the injury while batting in the second inning Wednesday night against the Reds. He'll likely miss more than a month. Jorge Lopez has been promoted from Double-A Biloxi in a corresponding roster move to work out of the Brewers' bullpen.

Chase Anderson (oblique) will be placed on the 10-day disabled list.

Anderson suffered a left oblique strain while batting in the second inning of Wednesday's game against the Reds. There is no current timetable for his return, but this is expected to be a somewhat lengthy stay on the disabled list. Oblique injuries can be some of the trickiest to heal fully from.
Jun 28 - 10:38 PM

Chase Anderson left Wednesday's game against the Reds due to a left oblique strain.

Anderson appeared to suffer the injury while striking out swinging in the second inning. Obliques are notoriously difficult injuries to gauge when it comes to a timetable for a return. A stint on the disabled list will probably be needed, here.
Jun 28 - 8:08 PM

Chase Anderson left Wednesday's game against the Reds due to an apparent injury.

Anderson was lifted after striking out at the plate in the second inning. Paolo Espino then took over for him on the mound. The Brewers should offer up an update as to the exact nature of Anderson's injury as Wednesday's game progresses.
Jun 28 - 7:44 PM

Chase Anderson held the Pirates to two runs and two hits over six innings in a win Thursday.

Anderson has a 1.33 ERA while turning in six straight quality starts. He's had a heck of a season for a guy the Brewers were probably going to leave out of the Opening Day rotation if not for an injury to Matt Garza.
Jun 22 - 5:42 PM

Chase Anderson gave up three runs in seven innings and was denied a decision against the Padres on Saturday.

He struck out six batters without walking anybody. He surrendered just five hits but two of them left the yard. Anderson gave up a solo homer to Yangervis Solarte in the second inning, an RBI double to Hunter Renfroe in the fourth and a Wil Myers solo shot in the sixth. Anderson barely squeaked into the rotation on Opening Day but has been sensational ever since. He is 5-2 with a 2.92 ERA and 1.15 WHIP through 14 starts. He had a 4.39 ERA in 30 starts as a rookie last year. His 77 strikeouts against 25 walks in 83 1/3 innings show his good fortune is not a fluke. He has allowed only seven home runs despite pitching in a homer-friendly ballpark.
Jun 17 - 8:53 PM

Chase Anderson allowed one earned run, four hits and a walk with eight strikeouts over six innings in a loss at Arizona on Sunday.

Anderson threw 68 of his 108 pitches for strikes in the quality start while lowering his ERA to 2.83, but he received very little run support. It was his fourth consecutive quality start, allowing just one run and 14 hits over his past 27 2/3 innings while recording 30 strikeouts.
Jun 11 - 9:38 PM

Chase Anderson shut out the Giants for 7 2/3 innings Tuesday to improve to 5-1 this season.

Anderson hasn't allowed a run over 21 2/3 innings in his last three starts. He fanned just four tonight after totaling 18 in his previous two outings, but against the Giants, allowing the team to put the ball in play isn't a bad strategy these days. Anderson still doesn't seem like a great long-term bet in mixed leagues, but after a mediocre matchup in Arizona this weekend, he's due to get the Padres and Pirates. That's not a bad slate.
Jun 6 - 10:38 PM

Chase Anderson blanked the Mets for seven innings and struck out seven in a victory Thursday.

Anderson was probably going to be the odd-man out of the Brewers rotation at the end of the spring if not for Matt Garza's injury, but after 11 starts, he's 4-1 with a 3.30 ERA. He's throwing harder than ever, and he's struck out 59 in 62 2/3 innings. We still don't think there's enough upside here to justify a pickup in mixed leagues, but he's one of the big reasons the Brewers are very much in contention.
Jun 1 - 4:30 PM

Chase Anderson was masterful Saturday, allowing a lone hit while striking out 11 Diamondbacks over seven innings in a 6-1 win.

Anderson was nearly flawless in this one, carrying a no-hitter into the eighth inning before a leadoff single ended his no-hit bid and his afternoon. Even without history, it was still a dominant performance from the 29-year-old, whose 11 strikeouts were a season high, while also walking three. The win improved him to 3-1 with a 3.72 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 10 starts. Anderson will try to replicate his success Thursday against the Mets.
May 27 - 8:31 PM

Chase Anderson surrendered six runs on seven hits over four-plus innings in Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

Anderson started off on the wrong foot by allowing three runs in the first inning. He would proceed to yield solitary runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings before being relieved of duty. Three of the six runs on his line scored via the home run, with Ben Zobrist burning him for a solo shot and Kris Bryant burning him for a pair. This was the third consecutive outing in which Anderson has failed to toss at least five innings. He will carry a 4.25 ERA and 1.46 WHIP into a home start against the Diamondbacks next time he takes to the mound.
May 21 - 5:55 PM

Chase Anderson was lifted after allowing two runs in 4 2/3 innings Wednesday against the Red Sox.

If Anderson had gotten one more out, it would have resulted in a win; he left a 2-2 game in the fifth and then watched the Brewers score four times in the bottom of the inning. It's the second straight start in which Anderson has just missed completing five innings. He still has the nice 2.97 ERA, but he's not a mixed league kind of guy.
May 11 - 1:30 AM

Chase Anderson was removed after allowing seven hits and four runs over 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision Thursday against the Cardinals.

It was the first time in six starts that Anderson failed to go at least five innings, and he's now allowed four runs in each of his past two starts after allowing just three earned runs over his first four outings combined. It was expected he'd come back to earth, and even with Thursday's abbreviated start the 29-year-old still owns a 2.86 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in six starts. Anderson has a difficult task ahead, facing off with the Red Sox in an interleague tilt Wednesday.
