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.
Shaun Anderson was removed from Wednesday's start against the Nationals with a blister.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy said afterwards that it's possible Anderson could miss his next start. He allowed four runs over three innings before departing.
Shaun Anderson (3-3) allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out seven in five innings in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Padres. He took his third loss of the season.
Anderson has now failed to win a game or last more than five innings in any of his last five starts, going 0-1 with a 7.71 ERA, 1.80 WHIP and 24:10 K:BB through 23 1/3 innings over that stretch. Depending on what the Giants do, his next start tentatively scheduled Thursday, away against the Phillies.
Shaun Anderson received a no-decision on Monday versus the Cubs, allowing three runs on three hits over five innings pitched.
Anderson struck out five, walked two, and allowed two homers in the outing. The right-hander doesn't pitch deep into games and therefore isn't ever a recommended streaming option. He'll carry a 4.91 ERA into his next start versus the Padres.
