  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Shut down with strained oblique

    Anderson suffered a strained left oblique during his most recent start at Triple-A Gwinnett on Sept. 8 and is expected to be sidelined for at least one month, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Anderson lost his spot in the big-league rotation shortly after Atlanta acquired Jake Odorizzi from Houston ahead of the trade deadline, and the 24-year-old right-hander hadn't made a compelling case for returning to the majors following his demotion to Triple-A on Aug. 13. In his subsequent four outings with Gwinnett, Anderson turned in a 5.40 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 23:10 K:BB in 21.2 innings before straining his oblique. The injury will almost certainly end Anderson's season, as Atlanta likely won't consider adding him to the postseason roster even if he's back to full strength by the middle of October.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Returned to minors

    Anderson was returned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday.

    Anderson started the second game of Atlanta's doubleheader against the Marlins and earned his 10th win of the season. He allowed two earned runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four across six innings. Anderson has allowed two or fewer earned runs five times in his last seven starts but has served up seven and four earned runs in the other two starts. He's likely to be back in Atlanta's rotation at some point prior to the close of the regular season.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Called up as 27th man

    Anderson was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett to serve as the 27th man during Saturday's doubleheader against the Marlins.

    Anderson will start the second game of Saturday's twin bill, but his designation as the 27th man signals that he'll likely head back to the minors following the start. Over 21 major-league starts this year, he's posted a 5.11 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in 105.2 innings.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Set to rejoin rotation next weekend

    Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said Anderson will be recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett to start one game of Saturday's doubleheader in Miami, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Even though Anderson was optioned to Triple-A on Sunday, he won't actually report to the affiliate and will be part of Atlanta's taxi squad as the club shifts its road trip from New York to Boston during the upcoming week. Since he'll be designated as the 27th man for the upcoming twin bill, Atlanta will be able to add Anderson back to the active roster in fewer than 15 days, but the expectation remains that he'll report to Gwinnett immediately following his spot start against the Marlins. Anderson has seemingly lost his spot in the rotation to Jake Odorizzi after allowing four earned runs on seven hits and four walks over 4.2 innings in a no-decision versus the Mets on Friday.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Demoted to Triple-A

    Anderson was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.

    The right-hander surrendered four runs over 4.2 innings Friday and has a 6.62 ERA across his past eight starts, leading Atlanta to remove him from the rotation and send him to the minors. Anderson could receive another look in the majors down the stretch, but for now he'll look to straighten things out at Triple-A. Huascar Ynoa was recalled from Gwinnett in a corresponding move, though he isn't guaranteed to step into the rotation since Atlanta was employing a six-man rotation following the addition of Jake Odorizzi at the trade deadline.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Coughs up four runs

    Anderson yielded four runs on seven hits and four walks over 4.2 innings in Friday's win over the Mets. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.

    Through four frames, Anderson allowed just one run on a Brandon Nimmo second-inning single. He ran into trouble in the fifth and was charged with three more runs, including a pair after Dylan Lee took over. Anderson's ERA climbed to 5.11 with a 93:53 K:BB through 105.2 frames this season. The 24-year-old righty has now allowed at least four runs in nine of his 21 starts. For now, Anderson is projected to start in Miami next week.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Rotation spot secure for now

    Anderson will remain in the rotation despite Atlanta's addition of Jake Odorizzi at the trade deadline, Maria Torres and David O'Brien of The Athletic report.

    Anderson has struggled this season, posting a 4.99 ERA and 1.50 WHIP through 20 starts and 101 innings, but for now Odorizzi is viewed as a sixth starter and a swing man, not a replacement for the 24-year-old right-hander. Anderson has also been a little more consistent of late, allowing two runs or fewer runs in four of his last five outings, although the fifth start featured a seven-run implosion against the Angels. Should he regress again down the stretch, manager Brian Snitker could well swap roles between the two, but for now Anderson will stay on turn.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Dominant in Saturday's win

    Anderson (9-6) earned the win Saturday over the Diamondbacks. He allowed a hit and a walk while striking out nine over six scoreless innings.

    Anderson gave up both baserunners in the fifth inning, but he was able to strand runners on the corners. Atlanta's offense gave him enough support to weather a shaky ninth inning from A.J. Minter, resulting in Anderson's third win in five July starts. The right-hander allowed 11 runs in 24.2 innings for the month, though it's worse than it looks -- the Angels tagged him for seven runs last Sunday. For the season, he owns a 4.99 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 90:49 K:BB across 101 innings in 20 starts. He's projected for a tough road start versus the Mets next week.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Struggles against Angels

    Anderson (8-6) allowed seven runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out two in three innings to take the loss during Sunday's game against the Angels.

    Anderson had held his opponents to two or fewer runs in each of his last three starts, and he picked up two wins during that time. However, he struggled during his first start after the All-Star break and gave up at least four runs in an outing for the eighth time this year. Over his last seven starts, the right-hander has posted a 6.32 ERA and 1.82 WHIP in 31.1 innings. He tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Cruises to eighth win

    Anderson (8-5) picked up the win in Friday's 8-4 victory over the Nationals, allowing one run on five hits and three walks over 5.1 innings. He struck out five.

    The right-hander wasn't particularly efficient, tossing 60 of 101 pitches for strikes, but Atlanta handed Anderson a 3-0 lead before he set foot on the mound and he never let Washington get close. He's failed to last six innings in five straight starts, but he hasn't given up more than two runs in any of his last three. Anderson will carry a 4.79 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 79:45 K:BB through 92 innings into the All-Star break.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Settles for no-decision

    Anderson allowed two runs on two hits and four walks while striking out five in 5.1 innings during Sunday's extra-innings win over the Nationals. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Anderson picked up the win during his last outing but was forced to settle for the no-decision in Sunday's matchup that lasted 12 innings. The right-hander hasn't gone six innings in any of his last four starts, but he's given up just three runs in 10.1 innings over his last two appearances. The 24-year-old has been inconsistent over his last seven starts, posting a 5.45 ERA and 1.70 WHIP in 33 innings. He tentatively lines up for a rematch against the Nationals on the road Friday.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Gets back in win column

    Anderson (7-5) earned the win during Tuesday's 7-1 victory over St. Louis, allowing one run on eight hits and one walk with three strikeouts in five innings.

    Anderson permitted three consecutive two-out hits in the first inning en route to surrendering his lone run. However, Atlanta quickly rallied for five runs in the bottom of the inning. It was a nice rebound from a poor June that featured a 6.91 ERA in six starts, though it was only the 24-year-old's second start in his last nine allowing one run or fewer. Anderson tentatively lines up for another start this weekend against Washington.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Another rough outing

    Anderson (6-5) allowed seven earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out one across two innings to take the loss Thursday against the Phillies.

    Anderson had a disastrous second inning, as he allowed the first five batters he faced to reach base -- accounting for four earned runs. After finally getting an out, Anderson served up a three-run homer to Nick Castellanos to cap off the seven-run inning. Anderson has allowed at least four earned runs in six of his last eight outings, which has inflated his ERA to 5.31 on the campaign.
