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. Aug 19 - 10:34 PM

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.
Aug 14 - 11:10 PM

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.
Aug 9 - 1:11 AM

Chase Anderson held the Reds to one run and three hits over seven innings in Monday's extra-inning win.

Anderson wasn't involved in the decision, but he was effective once again, recording a third straight quality start. He's looking like a keeper for the Diamondbacks.
Jul 29 - 12:11 AM

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.
Jul 23 - 1:06 AM

Chase Anderson got back in the win column Monday, allowing one run on seven hits over six innings against the Marlins.

Anderson has experienced a rollercoaster indoctrination into pro baseball: He won each of his first five starts, and then lost his next four before coming out on top this evening. The right-hander walked two and struck out eight. Anderson (6-4, 3.64 ERA) travels to San Francisco over the weekend.
Jul 8 - 12:42 AM

Chase Anderson fell to 5-4, allowing three runs over 3 2/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Pirates.

The Pirates were all over Anderson, who threw 88 pitches and was unable to get through four innings. The right-hander allowed eight hits -- including a two-run Gregory Polanco home run -- while walking three and striking out five. Anderson still maintains a respectable 3.91 ERA with a 1.39 WHIP, and a 39/17 K/BB ratio. He'll go up against the Marlins at home in his next start.
Jul 2 - 10:29 PM

Chase Anderson surrendered four runs on seven hits over five innings of Wednesday's loss to the Indians.

Anderson struck out four and walked three in getting slapped with his third straight loss. Things could have been worse, but both homers Anderson allowed were of the solo variety. This was just the second time in eight starts that Anderson has surrendered more than two earned runs. After falling to 5-3 with a 3.63 ERA, Anderson gets the Pirates next week.
Jun 26 - 12:45 AM

Chase Anderson took a second straight loss Thursday after giving up three runs -- two earned -- in six innings against the Brewers.

Anderson improbably started out 5-0 for a mediocre Diamondbacks team, but he's taken back-to-back defeats now, even though he's doing the same thing he did when he was winning. He's allowed one or two earned runs in six of his seven big-league starts and has a 3.18 ERA overall.
Jun 19 - 7:06 PM

Chase Anderson took his first loss as a major leaguer after allowing two runs in five innings Friday against the Dodgers.

Anderson was 5-0 before getting matched up against Clayton Kershaw for a second time tonight. As far as losses go, this obviously wasn't a bad one. He was far better than when he beat Kershaw in the 18-7 game against the Dodgers back on May 17. Given the Diamondbacks had scored a total of 45 runs in his previous five starts, he was about due to come out on the wrong end of a 4-3 game.
Jun 14 - 1:53 AM

Chase Anderson allowed two runs over seven innings, striking out eight, in a win over the Braves on Sunday.

Anderson can't seem to lose. After limiting the Braves to five hits and a walk, the young right-hander is 5-0 with a 3.14 ERA in his five major league starts. What's more, he's getting better as time wears on. He'll get a chance to show just how good he can be Friday at the Dodgers.
Jun 8 - 10:14 PM

Chase Anderson earned his third win in as many tries on Wednesday, allowing four runs -- one earned -- on eight hits over five innings in a 12-6 victory against the Padres.

Incredibly, Anderson has received 35 runs of support over three starts. Arizona isn't necessarily thrilled with his performance, but he's pitching well enough to stick in the rotation for now. "We try to encourage him to throw the ball the way he's thrown it in the minor leagues," manager Kirk Gibson told before the game. Anderson was 4-2 with an 0.69 ERA in six starts for Double-A Mobile earlier this year, while he's posted a 4.02 ERA and 1.34 WHIP so far in the pros. Anderson better hope his offensive friends turn out again in Colorado next week. His ERA isn't safe.
May 29 - 1:13 AM

Chase Anderson moved to 2-0 as a big leaguer after giving up five runs in 5 1/3 innings Saturday against the Dodgers.

If Anderson had dreamed of outdueling Clayton Kershaw, this probably wasn't exactly how it went. The Diamondbacks racked up seven runs in the second inning of this one, leading to a long wait for Anderson and a two-run top of the third. Anderson bounced back after that until the Dodgers rallied for five runs in the sixth, three of which scored off Anderson on Carl Crawford's homer. As odd as the circumstances were, we won't hold the runs against Anderson. He's a worthy play in NL-only leagues right now.
May 18 - 12:29 AM

Chase Anderson earned the win in his first major league start on Sunday, allowing one run over 5 1/3 innings against the White Sox.

Anderson gave up just two hits, one of which Moises Sierra swatted for a home run. He was otherwise stellar, striking out six while walking just one. He had a 0.69 ERA and 38/6 K/BB ratio in 39 innings at Double-A this year, and Sunday's start affirmed he'll get another start with the club. That start will likely come Saturday against the Dodgers.
May 11 - 5:31 PM

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Wednesday that the team is leaning towards starting Chase Anderson on Sunday against the White Sox.

He's replacing Mike Bolsinger, who was optioned to Triple-A Tuesday. Anderson has battled injury issues since being taken in the ninth round of the 2009 draft, but the 26-year-old has stayed healthy this season at Double-A, posting a 0.69 ERA and 38/6 K/BB ratio in 39 innings. He could be worth a look in NL-only formats.
