Ian Anderson to start Game 2 of NLCS on Sunday

Braves starting pitcher Ian Anderson will start Game 2 of NLCS against the Dodgers on Sunday night.

Fantasy Impact

Anderson has risen to the occasion for the Braves when called on in the postseason the last two seasons. Anderson has a 1.01 WHIP, 0.76 ERA, .165 opponents batting average while also recording 30 strikeouts in five career postseason starts. In one start against the Dodgers in the 2021 regular season, Anderson struggled, lasting just 4.1 innings, allowing four runs, and recording six strikeouts in a June 4th loss to the Dodgers at Truist Park.

Ian Anderson gets nod on Monday

Braves pitcher Ian Anderson will start Game 3 of the NLDS against the Brewers on Monday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact

Anderson looked good in the regular season, going 9-5 with a 3.58 ERA, 124 strikeouts, and 53 walks. However, he has an even better resume in the postseason. During playoff action last year, the right-hander went 2-0 with just two earned runs over 18.2 innings of work.

Ian Anderson solid over six-plus innings Thursday

Ian Anderson pitched six-plus innings against the Phillies Thursday, allowing three hits, two runs (both earned), and three walks while striking out two. The Braves bullpen did their jobs, and Anderson's record improved to 9-5 on the year. He also earned a quality start. He threw 91 pitches, 56 for strikes, and carries a 3.58 ERA.

Fantasy Impact

Anderson has a solid future ahead of him, and he has progressed this year, while there were some bumps along the route, he has shown some good things that tell most that more good things are in store for him. Tonight, it was important that he pitched well and got a boost of confidence heading into the playoffs, and he did just that.

Ian Anderson superb across seven Wednesday

Ian Anderson pitched seven innings against the Diamondbacks Wednesday, allowing two hits, one run (earned), and one walk while striking eight batters out. The Braves offense provided good run support, and Anderson's record improved to 8-5, and he also earned a quality start. He threw 97 pitches, 59 for strikes, and carries a 3.60 ERA.

Fantasy Impact

In the preseason, some were extolling the virtues of Anderson with even a mention of a possible run for NL ROY. While the ROY didn't happen, he has shown us that he does possess the tremendous talent that people were talking about and tonight was a glimpse of what is to come from him when he takes the mound in the future.

Ian Anderson goes 5 2/3 Friday

Ian Anderson pitched 5 2/3 innings against the Giants Friday, allowing five hits, four runs (all earned), and two walks while striking out seven batters. He was not a factor in the decision. He threw 99 pitches, 60 for strikes, and carries a 3.75 ERA.

Fantasy Impact

The Braves are obviously weakest at starting pitching (and relief, too) simply because most of the rotation is pitching in their rookie years. Anderson is set for a good career but his effort tonight will not help the Braves defend their NL East title.
