Ian Anderson will undergo Tommy John surgery

Atlanta Braves right-hander Ian Anderson will undergo Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Impact

Anderson opened up the season in Triple-A where he struggled before being diagnosed with a torn UCL. He is expected to make a full recovery for next season. In the meantime, Bryce Elder has been strong in the Braves rotation so far this season. Michael Soroka is also working his way back from injury.

Ian Anderson might need Tommy John surgery

Braves beat reporter Mark Bowman said Tuesday that Braves pitcher Ian Anderson could possibly need Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Impact

Anderson opened up the season on the injured list due to a right elbow injury. He struggled in his first rehab start earlier in April. There hadn't been much other news on his status. This is all speculative right now, but it sounds like Anderson remains without a timetable to return. Michael Soroka pitched in a rehab start Tuesday and he looked good.

Ian Anderson: Coaching staff encouraged after early spring work

The Atlanta Braves’ coaching staff is reportedly encouraged with Ian Anderson’s early spring work, which includes him featuring a slider he added in the off-season.

Fantasy Impact

Anderson is in need of a bounce back season after posting the worst numbers of his young career in 2022. Despite winning 10 games, the 24-year-old posted a 5.00 ERA and a .264 batting average against in 22 games. Fantasy managers will want to monitor his progress in Spring Training to see if Anderson can return to his 2021 form.

Ian Anderson optioned to Triple-A on Sunday

The Braves optioned Ian Anderson to Triple-A on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Anderson has had a terrible season, with his 5.11 ERA being fourth-worst among starters. With the Braves' acquisition of Jake Odorizzi, they now have five starters they can start with relative confidence, and Anderson simply wasn't needed anymore. He'll try to get right in the minors but, to the extent you were still relying on him for some reason, feel free to move on.

Ian Anderson struggles in win Friday

Ian Anderson pitched 4 2/3 innings, allowing seven hits, four walks, and four earned runs Friday. He struck out three Mets and earned a no-decision.

Fantasy Impact

Anderson has had a rough season and could potentially be in danger of losing his spot in the rotation if he cannot right the ship. In 21 starts he has posted a 5.11 ERA, .266 OBA, and a career high 4.51 K/9 ratio. The 24-year-old was very effective in 2020 and 2021, so it remains to be seen if the Braves will let him work out his troubles in the rotation or the bullpen.
