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.

Brett Anderson allows seven runs Monday versus Philadelphia

Brett Anderson only lasted 1 1/3 innings allowing seven runs on a combined eight hits and walks and a single strikeout.

Fantasy Impact

There will be bad outings as he is not a dominant type of pitcher. He should still have some value as long as he stays a starter for the Cubs.

Brett Anderson with a scoreless outing Thursday versus Los Angeles

Brett Anderson went five scoreless innings where he allowed seven base runners while striking out two.

Fantasy Impact

He is normally a ground ball pitcher but today he struggled with four walks and allowed six flyballs. Great defense and timely pitches allowed him to emerge unscathed. He is still not a great pitcher despite the ERA under 1 but solid with a great team behind him is still deep fantasy worthy.
