Top Nick Anderson News

  • Braves' Nick Anderson: Inks deal with Atlanta

    Anderson signed a one-year, $875,000 deal with the Braves on Friday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Anderson last played in the majors for Tampa Bay in 2021, recording a 4.50 ERA and 1.00 WHIP over just six innings of work. He spent all of last season in Triple-A Durham with a 5.63 ERA and 1.44 WHIP through 16 innings. He will likely have to fight for a spot in the Braves' bullpen or be sent down to Triple-A again, at which point the value of his contract drops to $180,000.

  • Nick Anderson: Hits free agency

    Anderson cleared outright waivers and became a free agent Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Anderson has made only six big-league appearances over the past two seasons while dealing with injuries, leading Tampa Bay to remove him from the 40-man roster. The right-hander had a 2.77 ERA across 81.1 innings between 2019 and 2020, so he should receive an opportunity somewhere for next season, though he may have to settle for a minor-league deal.

  • Rays' Nick Anderson: Dropped from 40-man roster

    The Rays reinstated Anderson (foot) from the 60-day injured list Wednesday and designated him for assignment, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Tampa Bay didn't plan on tendering Anderson a contract for 2023 after injuries cost him most of the past two seasons, so he'll lose his spot on the 40-man roster and will now be available to MLB's other 29 teams via waivers. Anderson is arbitration-eligible for the next three years and likely won't be in store for a major salary increase after earning $845,000 in 2022, potentially making him an appealing flier for a team with less bullpen depth than the Rays. Anderson is just two years removed from collecting six saves and six holds while pitching to an 0.55 ERA and 0.49 WHIP over 16.1 innings in relief during the pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign.

  • Rays' Nick Anderson: Placed on 60-day IL

    The Rays recalled Anderson (foot) from Triple-A Durham and placed him on the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

    Anderson was sent down to Durham in late August but was recently shut down for the remainder of the season due to plantar fasciitis in his right foot. His placement on the injured list will help to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Dusten Knight, whose contract was selected Wednesday. Anderson's foot issue isn't considered significant, so it seems likely that he'll have a relatively normal offseason program.

  • Rays' Nick Anderson: Shut down for season

    Anderson, who was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Aug. 22, won't pitch again this season after recently dealing with plantar fasciitis in his right foot, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    After performing as arguably one of the Rays' top relievers during the team's 2019 and 2020 postseason runs, Anderson has struggled to stay healthy over the subsequent two seasons. He spent the first four and half months of the current season on the injured list while recovering from the elbow surgery he underwent last October, and he had struggled to regain top form since returning to action for Durham. He logged a 5.63 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 12:3 K:BB in 16 innings for Durham before making his 17th and final appearance for the affiliate Sept. 10. The foot issue isn't considered a major concern, but he'll get a head start on his offseason nonetheless. The Rays may face a tough decision on whether to tender Anderson a contract heading into the 2023 season.

  • Rays' Nick Anderson: Activated and optioned

    The Rays reinstated Anderson (elbow) from the 60-day injured list Monday and optioned him to Triple-A Durham, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Anderson is healthy again after making a full recovery from the right elbow surgery he underwent last October, but the Rays presumably want him to sharpen his command at Triple-A before bringing him back in the big-league bullpen. Over his eight rehab appearances for Durham prior to being reinstated from the IL, Anderson compiled a 0.88 WHIP and 7:2 K:BB across eight innings but allowed three home runs.

  • Rays' Nick Anderson: Rehab moving to Triple-A

    Anderson (elbow) will report to Triple-A Durham on Saturday to continue his rehab assignment, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Anderson began his rehab assignment last week in the rookie-level Florida Complex League, and he'll move up to the Triple-A level after making two appearances in the FCL. The veteran right-hander was limited to six innings last year due to elbow issues and underwent surgery in October, so he'll likely require a couple weeks in the upper minors before being cleared to rejoin the Rays.

  • Rays' Nick Anderson: Making progress

    Anderson (elbow) is on track to throw in a Florida Complex League game later this month, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    It has taken awhile for Anderson to recover from the elbow procedure he underwent last October, but he has seemingly made good progress of late. He's scheduled to face live hitters Tuesday, and if all goes well in the next two weeks, the Rays are hoping he will pitch in a FCL game July 26.

  • Rays' Nick Anderson: Elbow troubles continue

    Anderson will meet with a doctor on Tuesday about his continuing elbow discomfort, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Elbow troubles limited Anderson to just six innings last season, and he's yet to pitch this year while recovering from October surgery. While he was able to throw in some capacity this spring, the issue apparently remains troublesome. He hasn't had a clear return date at any point, but the risk of him missing the entirety of the season seems very real. A clearer picture should emerge after his doctor visit.

  • Rays' Nick Anderson: Completes side session

    Anderson (elbow) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The side session marked Anderson's first time throwing off a mound since he underwent right elbow surgery in late October. Anderson is without a definitive timeline for his rehab and recovery from the procedure, but he was placed on the 60-day injured list coming out of spring training and likely won't be ready to rejoin the Rays until after the All-Star break.

  • Rays' Nick Anderson: Opens season on 60-day IL

    The Rays placed Anderson (elbow) on the 60-day injured list March 25.

    The transaction is merely a formality, as Anderson is expected to be sidelined for the majority of the 2022 season while he recovers from the right elbow surgery he underwent last October. According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, Anderson had been throwing off flat ground from 60 feet as of late February, but it's unclear if he's advanced to mound work yet or when he might be able to do so.

  • Rays' Nick Anderson: Reaches one-year deal

    Anderson (elbow) and the Rays agreed to terms on a one-year, $845,000 deal Tuesday, avoiding arbitration, Kiley McDaniel of ESPN.com reports.

    Anderson will miss an extended portion of the upcoming season after undergoing elbow surgery in October.

  • Rays' Nick Anderson: Undergoes elbow surgery

    Anderson (back) underwent right elbow surgery Wednesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Anderson dealt with a back injury late in the 2021 campaign and didn't return to the mound during the postseason. He's expected to be shut down for 3-4 months following Wednesday's procedure, and his injury will likely keep him out of game action for the first half of the 2022 campaign.

  • Rays' Nick Anderson: Expects to be back for playoffs

    Anderson (back) said Tuesday that he's "absolutely" confident that he'll be ready to return from the 10-day injured list when the Rays begin postseason play Oct. 7, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Anderson landed on the IL on Monday with a lower-back strain, an injury he said he potentially developed due to a mechanical change in his delivery during a relief appearance a day earlier. Though he won't throw for at least a few more days, Anderson believes that the time to rest will be enough to resolve the back injury while also helping him get more consistency with his velocity and command. Anderson had been sidelined all season with a torn elbow ligament before coming off the 60-day IL on Sept. 12. He proceeded to give up three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out only one hitter in six innings before returning to the shelf.

  • Rays' Nick Anderson: Out with back strain

    Anderson was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday due to a strained back, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Anderson allowed a solo homer while picking up his first save of the season Sunday against the Marlins, but he'll head to the injured list after giving up a run in each of his past three outings. The right-hander will miss the rest of the regular season but will be eligible to return for Game 1 of the ALDS on Oct. 7, though it's unclear if he's expected to be healthy by that juncture.

  • Rays' Nick Anderson: Notches first save

    Anderson allowed a solo homer in one inning Sunday but still earned the save over Miami.

    Anderson served up a solo shot to Lewin Diaz but retired the next three Marlins and secured the 3-2 victory. He's now given up a run in each of his last three outings after recording three straight scoreless frames to begin his 2021 season. Anderson is now sporting a 4.50 ERA with a 1:2 K:BB through six innings.
