Anderson scattered just two hits and a walk over his six frames, unfortunately his offense was unable to deliver any support for him and he was unable to secure his first win of the season. He'll head into Friday's start against the Padres with a 3.38 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 27/7 K/BB ratio through 29 1/3 innings on the season. May 3 - 8:14 PM

Date:

Chase Anderson struggled early in a loss against the Rockies, giving up five runs in 5 1/3 innings on Monday.

Justin Morneau slugged a three-run home run in the first inning to put Anderson behind the eight-ball early. Overall, Anderson surrendered eight hits with two walks while striking out four. It was Anderson's worst start of the four he's made to this point. He'll bring a 4.24 ERA and a 20/6 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings into a road start against the Dodgers next.
Apr 28 - 1:31 AM

Chase Anderson got a no-decision, giving up one run over seven innings to the Rangers, but the Diamondbacks lost 7-1 on Tuesday.

Anderson was terrific, limiting the Rangers to three hits while walking none and striking out five. His offense didn't give him much support and the bullpen started a grease fire once Anderson was out of the game. The 27-year-old right-hander has been solid over his first three outings, sporting a 3.00 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP, and a 16/4 K/BB ratio in 18 innings. Anderson will compete for his first win of the season when he faces the Rockies at home next.
Apr 22 - 12:56 AM

Chase Anderson yielded two runs across six innings and struck out five Wednesday against the Padres.

He walked one and gave up eight hits in the no-decision. Two starts into the new campaign, Anderson has pitched precisely as he did in 2014 (4.09 ERA in '15; 4.07 ERA last year). His bugaboos are walks and homers, but neither were issues tonight (one and zero, respectively). The 27-year-old can be deployed in NL-only formats when the matchup is advantageous. He hosts the Rangers next week.
Apr 15 - 11:56 PM

Chase Anderson yielded three runs in five innings and struck out six Friday against the Dodgers.

Anderson ended his outing by stranding the bases loaded in the fifth, striking out Yasiel Puig and then getting Howie Kendrick to line out after an intentional walk to Adrian Gonzalez. Anderson isn't particularly exciting for fantasy purposes, but he should prove to be a reliable starter for the Diamondbacks in his first full big-league season.
Apr 11 - 12:54 AM

Chase Anderson was hammered in Tuesday's Cactus League start against the Rangers, allowing six runs on 11 hits in just four innings of work.

Anderson walked one and struck out a pair on the day. It wasn't exactly the way the right-hander wanted to celebrate securing a spot in the Opening Day rotation. The 27-year-old now sports a 4.34 ERA and 12/5 K/BB ratio over 18 2/3 innings on the spring. He should be considered a fringe option in NL-only leagues heading into the regular season.
Mar 31 - 11:07 PM

Chase Anderson has secured a spot in the Diamondbacks' starting rotation.

Trevor Cahill got the other spot while Daniel Hudson will move to the bullpen. Anderson earned the opportunity after posting a 1.84 ERA and 10/4 K/BB ratio in 14 2/3 innings of work during Cactus League action. He's no sure thing to keep a spot and is a fringe option in mixed fantasy leagues.
Mar 30 - 5:36 PM

Chase Anderson pitched well in Thursday's start versus the Diamondbacks, allowing one run over six innings.

The right-hander yielded six hits and walked two while striking out four, lowering his Cactus League ERA to 1.84 in the process. With how well he has pitched this spring, it's difficult to envision a scenario in which Anderson hasn't already earned a spot in the Diamondbacks' rotation, but nothing has been made official yet. Trevor Cahill and Daniel Hudson are Anderson's remaining competitors, according to MLB.com's Steve Gilbert.
Mar 26 - 7:37 PM

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.
Mar 15 - 12:30 AM

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.
Feb 27 - 9:18 AM

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.
Sat, Sep 20, 2014 12:03:00 AM

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.
Tue, Sep 16, 2014 07:21:00 PM

Chase Anderson gave up two earned runs in six innings Saturday in a no-decision versus the Dodgers.

Anderson pitched really well, allowing just four hits while striking out six Los Angeles hitters in the eventual loss for Arizona. He did not walk a batter. The 26-year-old has done some positive things in his rookie season, boasting a 3.71 ERA and 95/35 K/BB ratio through 104 1/3 innings. He'll try to keep it up next week against the Padres.
Sun, Sep 7, 2014 12:18:00 AM

Chase Anderson allowed one run over six innings, striking out eight, in Sunday's win over the Rockies.

Aside from a Charlie Blackmon home run, Anderson was terrific, allowing four singles without walking a batter. It was the form that Anderson exhibited in going 7-4 with a 3.16 through his first 15 starts. After Sunday's win, Anderson is 8-6 with a 3.75 ERA. He'll take on the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Friday.
