Brewers' Brett Anderson: Missing from NLDS roster
Anderson wasn't included on Milwaukee's roster for the NLDS, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.
It's not exactly a major surprise, as Milwaukee rolled with a six-man rotation for most of the season, and Anderson was the weakest link of that unit. Still, it was a solid season for the veteran left-hander, who had a 4.22 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 58:28 K:BB over 96 innings (24 starts). Anderson is unlikely to join the roster for any further playoff rounds unless the Brewers suffer some pitching injuries.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Brett Anderson: Opens Sunday's loss
Anderson started Sunday's 10-3 loss to the Dodgers, allowing one hit in a scoreless first inning to receive a no-decision.
With the NL Central already clinched, manager Craig Counsell opted to go with the veteran Anderson for one inning to begin Sunday's game after the 33-year-old tossed 61 pitches Thursday. Anderson concludes the 2021 season with a 4-9 record in 24 starts with a 4.22 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 58:28 K:BB across 96 innings.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Brett Anderson: Starting on two days' rest
Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Anderson will start Sunday against the Dodgers in what amounts to a bullpen day for Milwaukee, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Anderson will be returning to the mound on just two days' rest after he threw 61 pitches and covered five innings Thursday in St. Louis. The southpaw will likely be in store for an even lighter workload in the regular-season finale, rendering him an unappealing streaming option for fantasy managers hoping that he might be able to scoop up a win....

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Takes no-decision
Anderson allowed two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out two across five innings during Thursday's loss to the Cardinals. He did not factor into the decision.
Making his second start since his return from the injured list with a left shoulder contusion, Anderson did his duty to keep the Brewers in the game, but his offense failed to provide enough run support. It was a decent bounce-back performance for the 33-year-old, who finishes the regular season 4-9 with a 4.26 ERA and 1.36 WHIP across 23 outings. His postseason status remains unclear at this point.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Brett Anderson: Struggles in return
Anderson (4-9) allowed two earned runs on six hits and one walk through 1.2 innings, taking the loss in Wednesday's 10-2 defeat to the Cardinals. He did not record a strikeout.
In his first start since suffering a left shoulder contusion on Sept. 1 against the Giants, it was Anderson's ego that was bruised Wednesday night. Although the left-hander only had two earned runs charged to his name, six Cardinals crossed home under his watch. The big blow came from Tyler O'Neill, who smacked a two-run shot off Anderson in the first. While the 33-year-old has been a serviceable pitcher for the Brewers this season, the lack of strikeouts in his game (four or fewer in 21 of 22 starts) render him a tough play in most fantasy formats....

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Officially activated
Anderson (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's start against the Cardinals.
Anderson was on the injured list since Sept. 1 due to a left shoulder contusion, but he'll rejoin the Brewers' rotation Wednesday without a rehab assignment. The southpaw has made eight appearances since the All-Star break and has recorded a 3.96 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 36.1 innings during that time.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Brett Anderson: Confirmed as Wednesday's starter
Anderson (shoulder) will be activated from the 10-day injured list to start Wednesday against the Cardinals, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
It was reported earlier in the week that Anderson was trending toward being activated for Wednesday's start, and now the club has confirmed that will indeed be the case. Anderson hasn't pitched since suffering a left shoulder contusion during his Sept. 1 outing against San Francisco, but he's slated to return to a big-league mound without going on a rehab assignment. The veteran southpaw will be resuming his campaign with a 4.18 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 56:26 K:BB through 88.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Brett Anderson: Expected back Wednesday
Anderson (shoulder) is expected to return from the 10-day injured list Wednesday to start the third game of the Brewers' home series with the Cardinals, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.
Milwaukee has yet to confirm that Anderson will take the hill that day to make his first start since Sept. 1, but the southpaw looks to be tracking toward a return after completing a bullpen session earlier in the weekend. Because he hasn't completed a simulated game or minor-league rehab outing, Anderson could be in store for a lighter workload than usual if he rejoins the rotation Wednesday. Before landing on the shelf with a bruised left shoulder, Anderson compiled a 4-8 record, 4.18 ERA and 1.34 WHIP across 21 starts.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Brett Anderson: Throws bullpen Friday
Anderson (shoulder) simulated multiple innings in a bullpen session on Friday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Manager Craig Counsell said the club is still pondering whether to put the southpaw back in the starting rotation or have him throw another bullpen first. If they decide on the first option, Anderson would likely take the ball at some point during the upcoming series against the Cardinals. The Brewers should clarify their pitching plans in the coming days.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Brett Anderson: Placed on 10-day IL
Anderson was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left shoulder contusion Thursday.
Anderson left Wednesday's game against the Giants early after he was struck by a line drive on the left shoulder, and the injury will force him to miss at least one turn through the rotation. The southpaw also dealt with hip and calf issues in August, but it's not yet clear how much time he'll be forced to miss due to his shoulder contusion. Alec Bettinger was recalled by the Brewers on Thursday, but the team hasn't announced who will take Anderson's place in the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Brett Anderson: Struck by liner, exits early
Anderson was struck by a line drive in the left shoulder and exited Wednesday's start against the Giants after two innings, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Anderson was struck by a 103-mph liner off the bat of Brandon Crawford during the second inning, and the left-hander was removed after closing out the frame. The 33-year-old exited from his last start with a hip injury and was also pulled from an outing early in August with a calf issue. Anderson won't factor in the decision Wednesday after giving up three hits with two strikeouts and a walk over two scoreless frames, and he should be considered day-to-day after being diagnosed with a shoulder contusion....

Brewers' Brett Anderson: On track to start Wednesday
Anderson (hip) is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Giants, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.
Anderson won't have to miss a turn through the rotation after he was pulled after four innings in his most recent start Aug. 26 against the Reds due to right hip tightness. The southpaw will presumably throw a bullpen session Monday before the Brewers formally clear him to make the start, but fantasy managers in NL-only leagues or deeper mixed leagues planning on deploying Anderson this week can probably feel comfortable about his status for Wednesday's contest....

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Doesn't consider injury serious
Anderson (hip) said after Thursday's game he doesn't think his injury is serious, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Anderson was diagnosed with right hip tightness after he exited Thursday's start against the Reds, but early reports have been encouraging. The southpaw will likely be evaluated in the coming days to make sure his injury isn't major, and he should be considered day-to-day for now. If Anderson is able to make his next turn through the rotation, he tentatively lines up to start on the road against San Francisco on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Brett Anderson: Leaves start with hip injury
Anderson exited Thursday's start against the Reds in the fifth inning with right hip tightness, Sophia Minnaert of Bally Sports Wisconsin reports. He was charged with three earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three over four frames.
Anderson had previously been slowed by hamstring and knee injuries earlier this season, but the hip issue looks to be a new concern for the southpaw. He'll presumably undergo further testing later Thursday or early Friday as the Brewers aim to identify the extent of the injury.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Brett Anderson: Stuck with loss Friday
Anderson (4-7) allowed three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out three over 5.1 innings in a loss to the Nationals on Friday.
Anderson kept the Nationals off the board for the first three innings but was punished by a two-run triple off the bat of Lane Thomas in the fourth and then a run-scoring single by Riley Adams in the sixth. The 33-year-old southpaw has only managed to last six innings twice this season and hasn't won a game since the beginning of the month. Anderson owns a 4.15 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 51:23 K:BB over 82.1 innings and is set up for a divisional showdown against the Reds next week.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Brett Anderson: Bounced by Bucs
Anderson (4-6) took the loss in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Pirates, surrendering six runs on eight hits and a walk over 3.1 innings. He struck out four.
The veteran southpaw made it through two innings unscathed before the wheels started coming off in the third. Anderson came into the weekend with a 1.40 ERA and 0.82 WHIP over his last five starts and 25.2 innings, so perhaps he was overdue for a dud. On the season, the 33-year-old carries a 4.09 ERA and 48:20 K:BB through 77 innings.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Brett Anderson: Friday's contest postponed
Anderson and the Brewers won't play Friday against the Pirates after the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Anderson was removed from his last start due to cramping in his left calf, and he'll get another day to recover before he returns to the mound. Friday's game will be made up as part of a split doubleheader Saturday. Anderson will start the matinee, while Aaron Ashby will take the mound to begin the second game, Rosiak reports....
