SP - PIT
Tyler Anderson (1-2) allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out two over 5.1 innings, earning the win over the Padres on Wednesday.
Anderson looked sharp in this bounceback performance after struggling in his first two starts of the season. He lowered his ERA to 4.02 and has put up a solid 14:4 K:BB over 15.2 innings. He could be a decent streaming option next week as he lines up to face the Tigers on Tuesday.
Tyler Anderson (0-2) was saddled with his second loss of the season against the Cubs on Thursday. He allowed three runs on 10 hits and no walks in 5.1 innings. He struck out five.
Anderson was not at his sharpest on Thursday, allowing 10 hits over 5.1 innings, including two homers. There was some speculation that Anderson would be an interesting sleeper this season after leaving Colorado, and his strikeout number do bear watching. Otherwise, wins will be few and far between for the left-hander. He has a 5.23 ERA and 1.65 WHIP across 10.1 innings this season. He lines up to take on the Padres next week.

The Pirates signed LHP Tyler Anderson to a major-league contract.
It's a one-year, $2.5 million deal for Anderson. The southpaw was non-tendered by the Giants this offseason but will enter the 2021 campaign with a spot in the Pirates' rotation. He doesn't have any fantasy value right now, however.
Starting pitcher Tyler Anderson was non-tendered by the Giants on Wednesday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
In 2020, Anderson pitched to a 4.37 ERA with 41 strikeouts over 59 2/3 innings. His appeal in fantasy will depend on his landing spot in free agency, but he's unlikely to be rostered outside of deeper formats.
