The Twins placed RHP Shaun Anderson on the 10-day injured list due to blisters.
Anderson has struggled badly this season and isn't on the fantasy radar. It's unknown how long he'll be sidelined for.
Shaun Anderson was acquired by the Twins for LaMonte Wade Jr., according to beat writer Dan Hayes.
Anderson put up a 3.52 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 18:12 K/BB ratio over 15 1/3 innings in the Giants bullpen in 2020. He'll likely serve as a reliever for the Twins in 2021 as well.
Shaun Anderson was optioned to the alternate training site by the Giants on Wednesday.
Anderson has a 5.23 ERA with 11 walks issued in 10 1/3 innings pitched for the Giants this season. He can be left on the waiver wire in standard 12-team redraft leagues.
Shaun Anderson is stretching out as a starter in spring training.
Anderson finished 2019 coming out of the bullpen, but he is positioned to return to the starting rotation for the 2020 season. Anderson sported a 5.44 ERA, 1.55 WHIP, and 70:38 K:BB in 28 appearances last year. With Anderson out of the bullpen, Tony Watson seems to be the best bet to serve as the Giants' closer, but no decisions have been made yet.
Shaun Anderson earned another save on Friday versus the Marlins, throwing a scoreless ninth to secure the 1-0 win.
Anderson also got a save earlier in the week as he continues to fill in for Will Smith (back inflammation). Smith is expected back this weekend, but fantasy players who desperately need saves can add Anderson to see how this all plays out.
