Player Outlook
No hitter misses the 2019 super happy fun ball more than Brian Anderson. The 20 homers he hit that season was a career best than he has not come close to matching since and his peak power years of ages 28-30 have looked like carbon copies of below average production for both Miami and Milwaukee. The strong-armed third baseman/right fielder can likely find a platoon job with some team, but he is an odd fit because he is a righty who hits righties better (108 wRC+) than he does lefties (89 wRC+) over the course of his career. If there is a club willing to give him 300 or so plate appearances against righties and just bench him against lefties, mono league fantasy managers may be able to squeeze out a bit of value using a reserve pick on this dual-position player. That dual position eligibility is his saving grace as things stand now.

  • Braves' Brian Anderson: Returns from injured list

    Atlanta reinstated Anderson (illness) from the 10-day injured list Wednesday. The 31-year-old landed on the shelf in late June with a bacterial infection and will rejoin the active roster after a three-game rehab stint with Triple-A Gwinnett. Anderson signed a big-league contract with Atlanta in early June but saw action in just three games prior to landing on the injured list.

  • Braves' Brian Anderson: Begins rehab assignment

    Anderson (illness) was sent to Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday to begin a rehab assignment. Anderson has been out since late June with a bacterial infection but is feeling well enough to play in games again. He shouldn't require many rehab at-bats before being activated.

  • Braves' Brian Anderson: Dealing with bacterial infection

    Anderson is not with the team due to a lower-body bacterial infection, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Anderson hasn't been with Atlanta on the team's current road trip, and it sounds as though he'll remain out for at least a few more days. "So, he hasn't been with us the whole way, but we're just hoping that at some point, we get him back," said manager Brian Snitker. Anderson remains on the active roster, which means Atlanta is playing down a man.

  • Braves' Brian Anderson: Joins Atlanta on MLB deal

    Anderson agreed to a major-league contract with Atlanta and will be on the active roster for Tuesday's game in Boston. The 31-year-old opted out of his minor-league deal with Seattle over the weekend and will now receive his first look in the big leagues during 2024. Anderson spent last season with the Brewers and posted a .226/.310/.368 slash line in 96 contests. He should serve as a bench bat and provides some corner outfield depth with Ronald Acuna (knee) out for the season.

  • Mariners' Brian Anderson: Rejoins Seattle

    Anderson signed a minor-league contract with the Mariners on Thursday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Anderson was released by Seattle on Sunday, but he'll end up rejoining the organization and will head to Triple-A Tacoma. He could get an opportunity in the majors if Josh Rojas or Luis Urias struggles early on during the season.

  • Brian Anderson: Cut by M's

    The Mariners released Anderson on Sunday. Anderson put together a solid spring, slashing .250/.344/.536 with two homers and six RBI across 32 plate appearances, but he ultimately ended up not making the Mariners' Opening Day roster. The 30-year-old utility man will now attempt to latch on with another club and should have little trouble securing at least a minor-league deal.

  • Mariners' Brian Anderson: Belts homer in Cactus League loss

    Anderson went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in the Mariners' Cactus League loss to the White Sox on Thursday. Anderson's shot into right center in the second inning with Cade Marlowe aboard snapped a 1-1 tie. Anderson was a somewhat under-the-radar signing by the Mariners at the start of spring camp, and Thursday marked his Cactus League debut. With Luis Urias (shoulder) still rounding back into shape and limited to designated hitter duties for the time being, Anderson should have a solid amount of opportunity to make his case as a non-roster invitee in coming exhibitions.

  • Mariners' Brian Anderson: Joins Mariners as NRI

    Anderson signed a minor-league contract with the Mariners on Friday that includes an invite to big-league camp, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. The 30-year-old struggled to a .678 OPS in 96 games with Milwaukee last season and was released by the club in early October. Anderson would provide depth at third base and right field if he makes the roster, though his most likely position would be the hot corner since Luis Urias likely doesn't have a firm grip on the starting role.

  • Brian Anderson: Released by Milwaukee

    Anderson was released by the Brewers on Monday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Anderson was removed from the Brewers' 40-man roster last week and is now officially a free agent after clearing waivers. The 30-year-old got off to a solid start for the Brewers this season with a .790 OPS in April, but he posted a .629 OPS thereafter and saw scarce playing time upon returning from the injured list Aug. 3.

  • Brewers' Brian Anderson: Designated for assignment

    Anderson was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Thursday. This move clears out a 40-man roster spot for Garrett Mitchell (shoulder) as he returns from the 60-day injured list. Anderson played regularly for the Brewers in the first half of the 2023 campaign, but he'd logged only 27 plate appearances since the beginning of August while slashing .192/.222/.308 with one walk and nine strikeouts.

  • Brewers' Brian Anderson: Back from injured list

    Anderson (back) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Thursday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Anderson has been on the shelf nearly three weeks with a back strain, but he'll rejoin Milwaukee's active roster Thursday after completing a two-game rehab assignment at Triple-A Nashville. The 30-year-old had a strong start to the campaign but has struggled to a .568 OPS since the beginning of June.

  • Brewers' Brian Anderson: Cleared for rehab assignment

    Anderson (back) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Nashville this week, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Anderson landed on the 10-day injured list July 16 due to a back strain and will likely need a few games in the minors to regain his timing at the plate before the Brewers are comfortable activating him. Once he's reinstated from IL, Anderson could settle into an everyday role at either third base or designated hitter. Andruw Monasterio has performed capably at the hot corner in Anderson's stead, but the Brewers could make room for both players in the regular lineup by installing Monasterio at second base as a replacement for Brice Turang, who has largely underwhelmed with the bat since being called up from Triple-A in late June.

  • Brewers' Brian Anderson: On track for August return

    Anderson (back) isn't expected to return from the injured list until early-to-mid August, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Anderson resumed hitting in the cage earlier this week, but he still has some hurdles to clear as he recovers from the lingering back issue that sent him to the IL on July 16. When healthy this season, the 30-year-old third baseman has slashed .229/.317/.373 with nine homers and 38 RBI in 85 games for the Brewers.

  • Brewers' Brian Anderson: Fields grounders Friday

    Anderson (back) took grounders Friday and is nearing being able to swing a bat, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Anderson was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a back strain, but he's started to slowly ramp up his activities. Manager Craig Counsell said Friday that he doesn't expect Anderson to return before the team's next road trip, which starts July 28 in Atlanta.

  • Brewers' Brian Anderson: Lands on injured list

    The Brewers placed Anderson (back) on the 10-day injured list Sunday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Anderson has been dealing with back discomfort, and it's now come to light that he has a strain in his lower back, so he will be sidelined indefinitely. Jahmai Jones was recalled in a corresponding move while Andruw Monasterio will get the start at third base in Sunday's series finale in Cincinnati.

  • Brewers' Brian Anderson: Remains out Saturday

    Anderson (back) isn't in the Brewers' lineup Saturday against the Reds. Anderson was scratched ahead of Friday's game with lower-back discomfort, and it appears it will keep him out for another game Saturday. Andruw Monasterio will start at third base and bat seventh, and Tyrone Taylor will start in right field while batting fifth.

  • Brewers' Brian Anderson: Scratched with back discomfort

    Anderson was scratched Friday with lower-back discomfort, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. It sounds like a day-to-day issue for Anderson. Andruw Monasterio is starting at third base and hitting sixth against the Reds.

  • Brewers' Brian Anderson: Scratched from Friday's lineup

    Anderson was scratched from Friday's lineup against the Reds. This is tough timing, as the scratch was announced less than two hours before first pitch and Anderson was a solid streaming option this weekend in Cincinnati. It's unclear what the nature of his injury is. Andruw Monasterio will start at third base.

  • Brewers' Brian Anderson: Back from paternity leave

    Milwaukee activated Anderson (personal) from the paternity leave list Wednesday. Anderson was away from the Brewers for a couple of days as he welcomed a new addition to his growing family. The 30-year-old returns Wednesday to a .227/.318/.374 batting line with nine home runs and 37 RBI through 80 games.

  • Brewers' Brian Anderson: Goes on paternity leave

    Anderson was placed on the paternity leave list Monday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Anderson will be away for the next 1-3 games as he welcomes a little one into the world. Andruw Monasterio is at third base Monday and Owen Miller could also see time there while Anderson is away.
