Chase Anderson surrendered one run on two hits over 6 1/3 innings in Saturday's win over the Mets.
Anderson kept the Mets off the scoreboard altogether until Yoenis Cespedes broke the spell with an RBI single in the sixth inning. That would finish as the lone run the Mets managed in the 5-1 defeat. He's now tossed at least six innings in three of four starts, allowing two or fewer runs in each of those longer outings. He'll look to keep it going when he brings his 2.82 ERA and 0.99 WHIP into a home start against the Marlins in his next scheduled outing. Apr 14 - 10:41 PM

Chase Anderson allowed two runs over six innings in a loss to the Cubs on Sunday.

Anderson gave up four hits, including a solo homer to Ben Zobrist, while walking two while striking out two in the outing. He's sandwiched two quality starts around a poor start against the Cardinals, but he's now 0-1 with a 3.38 ERA to show for it. Anderson will keep looking for that first win next weekend against the Mets.
Apr 8 - 5:51 PM

Chase Anderson was hit hard in Tuesday's start against the Cardinals, surrendering four runs on eight hits in his four innings of work.

The right-hander struck out five and didn't walk a batter in the contest. The Cardinals jumped on him right out of the gate, as Dexter Fowler and Tommy Pham cranked back-to-back home runs. The most troubling aspect of his start was that Anderson's fastball topped out at just 92 mph, which is a bit of a drop from his 93.1 mph average velocity in 2017. He'll look to get back on track when he does battle against the Cubs on Sunday.
Apr 3 - 11:18 PM

Chase Anderson threw six scoreless innings in a no-decision, and the Brewers outlasted the Padres 2-1 in 12 innings Thursday.

Non-believers thought Anderson's 2.74 ERA last season was an aberration, and it likely was to an extent, but he shoved in his first opportunity of 2018, scattering a lone hit and three walks while striking out six over his six innings. Unfortunately the bullpen wasn't able to get him his first win of the year as well, but it was still a largely positive day for the 30-year-old. Anderson will get his shot at that first win Wednesday against the Cardinals.
Mar 29 - 11:07 PM

Chase Anderson struck out six while allowing three runs over six innings in a Cactus League win over the Dodgers on Sunday.

Anderson allowed five hits, including a solo homer, and didn't walk a batter in the sharp outing. It was a welcome turn after he'd put up a 6.52 ERA over his first four spring appearances. After a terrific 2017 season in which he posted a 2.74 ERA in 25 starts, Anderson is firmly in the mix as a middle-round starting pitcher pick in upcoming drafts.
Mar 18 - 6:50 PM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell has named Chase Anderson as his Opening Day starter.

He'll square off against the Padres in San Diego. Jhoulys Chacin will also pitch in the series against his former team, but the availability of Zach Davies (oblique) remains unclear for the opening series. More should be known soon.
Mar 12 - 12:54 PM

Chase Anderson struggled against the Diamondbacks on Thursday, giving up four runs in under four innings pitched.

Anderson didn't walk anyone and did strike out two, but he gave up five hits and allowed homers to Jake Lamb and Steven Souza. He's coming off a career-best year for Milwaukee; but while today was just an exhibition game, it was a reminder that when Anderson doesn't have his best stuff, he's very hittable. There's risk in his fantasy profile in 2018.
Mar 8 - 4:44 PM

Chase Anderson blanked the Reds over two innings on Tuesday, giving up one hit and striking out one.

It was the second appearance of the spring for Anderson, who also pitched on Saturday. The 31-year-old right-hander was one of the many bright spots for the Brewers in 2017, and while he won't miss a ton of bats, his ability to command the strike zone and limit hard contact combine to make him a decent -- if not spectacular -- fantasy option for 2018.
Feb 27 - 4:38 PM

Chase Anderson yielded two runs on two hits over one inning in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Angels.

Anderson walked one and struck out none in his spring debut. Martin Maldonado drove in both runs on his line via a two-run single in the first inning. Anderson was signed to a two-year, $11.75 million extension near the end of October after posting a respectable 2.74 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 133/41 K/BB ratio across 141 1/3 innings covering 25 starts in 2017. Prior to that campaign, he had not logged an ERA lower than 4.00 in a season. Don't expect fantasy pyrotechnics from the 30-year-old right-hander during the coming campaign, but he's plenty capable of solid work.
Feb 24 - 6:50 PM

Brewers signed RHP Chase Anderson to a two-year, $11.75 million contract extension with an $8.5 million club option for 2020 and a $9.5 million club option for 2021.

The new deal covers his remaining arbitration years and one year of free agency, at some fairly team-friendly rates. Anderson posted an impressive 12-4 record, 2.74 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 133/41 K/BB ratio in 141 1/3 innings (25 starts) this past season for Milwaukee, showing improved mastery of his four-pitch arsenal and an uptick in velocity on his fastball. He turns 30 years old in November.

Chase Anderson limited the Cardinals to one run in seven innings to win Friday.

Unfortunately, there was no ground to be made up on the Rockies, as the Brewers remained two back with two to play. Anderson finishes a delightful season 12-4 with a 2.74 ERA and a 133/41 K/BB ratio in 141 1/3 innings. That's pretty great for a guy the Brewers weren't planning to have in their rotation at the beginning of the season.

Chase Anderson surrendered three earned runs over 6 1/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Cubs.

Anderson struck out eight batters and issued only one walk, but the Cubs tagged him for seven hits -- including a Kris Bryant RBI double in the top of the fourth and a Ben Zobrist two-run homer in the top of the seventh. Anderson will carry an 11-4 record and 2.81 ERA into his final regular-season start next weekend at St. Louis.

Chase Anderson struck out eight in six innings and combined with Anthony Swarzak and Corey Knebel on a 1-0 shutout of the Pirates on Tuesday.

Anderson was all set to be left out of the Brewers' rotation to open the season, except Matt Garza landed on the DL to open up a spot. He's now 11-3 with a 2.74 ERA in his 23 starts. He's allowed one or no earned runs in 12 of those.
Tue, Sep 19, 2017 10:53:00 PM

Chase Anderson earned an 8-2 win over the Pirates by allowing two runs -- one earned -- in 5 1/3 innings on Wednesday.

He served up a solo tater to Andrew McCutchen in the first inning and then shut the Pirates out from there until allowing an unearned run in the sixth. Altogether he surrendered seven knocks and one walk while recording only two strikeouts. He might have been left in for another inning or two if he hadn't been pitching on just three days' rest. Anderson has been one of the biggest pitching surprises in the majors this year with a 10-3 record and 2.88 ERA in 22 starts after barely squeaking his way into the Brewers' starting rotation at the end of spring training. He will draw the Pirates again on Monday in the first of a two-start week during the fantasy playoffs.
Thu, Sep 14, 2017 12:56:00 AM

Chase Anderson will make his next start in Wednesday's series finale against the Pirates.

Anderson threw only 67 pitches in the Brewers' blowout win over the Cubs on Saturday, so manager Craig Counsell will trot him out on short rest Wednesday versus Pittsburgh. The 29-year-old right-hander stands 9-3 with a 2.93 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 110/38 K/BB ratio in 116 2/3 innings (21 starts) this season.
