Anderson more than lived up to the hype during the regular season in 2020, locking down six saves while putting up a silly 0.55 ERA, 0.49 WHIP, and a 44.8% strikeout rate. But he fell apart during the playoffs, pitching to a 5.52 ERA with a meager 14.2% strikeout rate, and allowing at least one run in each of his last seven appearances. Instead, Pete Fairbanks, who had nary a save in the regular season, saved three games in the postseason. Anderson spoke openly of his fatigue, both mental and physical, after the playoffs, and it seems that there's little reason to pay his poor performance much mind. Draft him for his strong ratios and his handful of saves, though don't expect him to operate like a traditional closer given how Tampa Bay generally operates.

Nick Anderson picks up the loss Game 6

Nick Anderson allowed one run on one hit over the 1/3 of an inning during Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Dodgers in Game 6 of the World Series.

Fantasy Impact

Anderson picked up the loss after surrendering two runs in the sixth inning. Austin Barnes scored on a wild pitch while Mookie Betts plated a run on a fielder's choice. Anderson entered the game despite Rays' starter Blake Snell dominating the Dodgers through most of it. The 30-year-old reliever struggled in the 2020 postseason, owning a 5.52 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and nine strikeouts over 14 2/3 innings.
