  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Aiming for midsummer return

    Anderson (elbow) told reporters Tuesday that he's hoping to be ready to return by the middle of the summer, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    It's a vague timetable, which is not unexpected with Anderson about 10 months removed from Tommy John surgery. The right-hander also revealed that he's altered his delivery a bit since resuming a throwing program, dropping his arm angle so he's not as over-the-top as he used to be. Anderson showed initial promise but struggled in 2022 before missing nearly all of 2023, so Atlanta won't necessarily be counting on him to contribute in 2024.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Undergoes Tommy John surgery

    Anderson underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow Thursday.

    It was announced Tuesday that Anderson would require the reconstructive elbow procedure for a tear of his right ulnar collateral ligament. The 24-year-old will be sidelined will miss the rest of the season and is likely to be out until at least next summer.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Will undergo Tommy John surgery

    Anderson (elbow) will require Tommy John surgery, Jeff Passan and Kiley McDaniel of report.

    Anderson was placed on the injured list at Triple-A Gwinnett last Tuesday after struggling in his first start there, and he has since been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. The 24-year-old will be sidelined until sometime in 2024. He was excellent for Atlanta between 2020-2021 before stumbling to a 5.00 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 97:54 K:BB in 111.2 major-league innings (22 starts) last season.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Nursing sore elbow at Triple-A

    Triple-A Gwinnett placed Anderson on its 7-day injured list Tuesday with a sore right elbow, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    The injury likely explains why Anderson was hit hard while struggling with both his command and control in his season debut at Triple-A last Sunday. The severity of Anderson's elbow injury isn't known at this time, but he's presumably not going to be a rotation option for the big club anytime soon.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Brutal start to Triple-A season

    Anderson lasted only two-thirds of an inning for Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday, surrendering six runs (four earned) on four hits and two walks with one strikeout.

    While his defense did him no favors, three of the nine hitters who faced Anderson also launched home runs off the right-hander. After a tough 2022 and a shaky spring, this was not the way the 24-year-old wanted to kick off the new campaign, but it seems as though he's a long way from being ready for a promotion. Expect Bryce Elder to get the nod to join Atlanta's rotation when Max Fried (hamstring) is placed on the IL.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Dispatched to Triple-A

    Atlanta optioned Anderson to Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.

    The way the regular-season schedule lines up, Atlanta is going to need a fifth starter out of the gate. Bryce Elder was also optioned to Triple-A on Tuesday, so maybe that assignment will go to Jared Shuster or Dylan Dodd. Anderson, 24, posted a rough 5.00 ERA over 22 major-league starts in 2022 and was struggling to find the strike zone this spring in Grapefruit League play.
