Brett Anderson leaves game with shoulder strain

Brett Anderson left Friday's game after one inning due to a left shoulder strain, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Fantasy Impact

It sounds like Anderson could be making a trip to the disabled list but nothing has been reported yet. Fantasy owners do not need to hold onto the 30-year-old lefty who has a 7.63 ERA and 2.02 WHIP over four starts.

Brett Anderson struggles again in loss

Brett Anderson allowed four runs on eight hits across five innings in Oakland's 6-2 loss to New York.

Fantasy Impact

The Yanks got to Anderson early, putting up a three spot in the bottom of the first on four hits. He settled down after that, scattering four hits and giving up only a monster bomb to Giancarlo Stanton in the fifth. That said, Anderson hasn't been good now for a second straight start and now has an unsightly 8.16 ERA and a 2.02 WHIP, getting tattooed by opposing hitters to the tune of .371. Don't expect much better moving forward, neither; guys have been batting at least .300 and an average of .366 against him over the past four years. Aside from getting lucky on a DFS dart throw, he holds nearly no value.

Brett Anderson gets hammered in loss to the Astros

Brett Anderson (0-1) was hammered for nine runs (seven earned) on 10 hits and three walks over three innings to take the loss Monday against Houston.

Fantasy Impact

Anderson was coming off a solid outing in his first start on May 2. But things unraveled for the 30-year-old pitcher in a tough matchup against the Astros. Anderson's next turn in the rotation is scheduled for Sunday against the Yankees, another tough test.

Brett Anderson called up, gets no-decision in win

Brett Anderson allowed two earned runs on five hits across 6 1/3 innings with a walk and four strikeouts in a no-decision as the A's beat the Mariners 3-2.

Fantasy Impact

Anderson was called up from Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday to replace Kendall Graveman and delivered an impressive start in his return to the A's after five years bouncing around the league. He certainly pitched well enough for the win but sadly didn't receive any run support. It's hard to trust him as anything more than a streaming option at the moment but he's sitting on a 2.84 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP thanks to his strong performance. He gets the Astros next.

Brett Anderson bombed by the Yankees, may be headed to the DL

Brett Anderson only lasted one out Saturday before leaving with lower-back tightness. He had given up five runs but the bigger concern is the back issue. He said he felt something while fielding a bunt. He has a history of back problems that have lead to surgeries and now Joe Maddon has said that he likely will be headed to the DL.

Fantasy Impact

This is a blow to his fantasy owners. Hopefully you can find worthy options on your waiver wires but for those wondering, it is likely to be either Mike Montgomery or Eddie Butler who would take over the spot in the rotation.
