Indians rookie SP Cody Anderson great again, but falls to Pirates
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6:31 pm ET) Indians right-hander Cody Anderson was saddled with his first career defeat Saturday in Pittsburgh. But aside from the decision, it was another triumph.
Anderson earned his first complete game by pitching eight innings and allowing just one run on six hits. He walked none, fanned four and tossed a mere 92 pitches.
The impressive rookie, whose only hiccup was an RBI single to Neil Walker in the sixth, has given up just two runs in 23 2/3 innings over three starts. He actually raised his ERA to 0.76 in taking the loss. Walker came away impressed.
"He pounded the strike zone," he told the Northeast Ohio Media Group. "He pounded the strike zone with fastballs, sliders and changeups. We found early on that he was going to nibble in the zone. He was going to make us beat him."
Indians SP Cody Anderson receives win Monday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(6/29/15) Indians pitcher Cody Anderson was almost perfect during his start Monday, which the Indians won 7-1.
Anderson only allowed two hits which led to one run over eight innings of work. The one run was scored on a solo home run by Grady Sizemore in the seventh inning, which broke up Anderson's perfect game. He also struck out two and did not walk a batter.
Monday was just Anderson's second major league start. He received the first win of his career Monday and has only surrendered one run over 15 2/3 innings to open his career.

Indians SP Cody Anderson dynamite in debut
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/21/15) Indians rookie right-hander Cody Anderson hoped for a strong major league debut Sunday against Tampa Bay. What he got was history.
Anderson became the first Cleveland pitcher to toss 7 2/3 scoreless innings at home in his first-ever start, per baseballreference.com. He yielded six hits with one walk and four strikeouts. A typically meager Indians offense resulted in Anderson having to accept a no-decision.
"I'm just honored to be here and help them win," Anderson said, per MLB.com. "It was definitely very special."
He allowed no more than one baserunner in any inning until the seventh, when he escaped a jam by inducing a lineout and groundout. He was removed with two out in the eighth after surrendering a double to Kevin Kiermaier.
"A small sample -- like a game -- I don't think defines somebody's career," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "But, besides the fact that he really pitched well, everything -- from his poise to the way he competed, holding runners when he had to, fielding his position, covering first -- he really [did well]."
Anderson will try to take his momentum and run with it in Baltimore next Saturday.
Indians adding Cody Anderson to rotation, makes debut Sunday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/19/15) Indians starting pitcher prospect Cody Anderson will be promoted from Triple-A Columbus to make his MLB debut Sunday against the Rays, the team confirmed Friday. He takes the rotation spot of Shaun Marcum, who was designated for assignment Thursday, manager Terry Francona said.
The right-hander is 4-3 with a 1.87 ERA in 12 starts between Double-A and Triple-A this season. He has 53 strikeouts and 14 walks in 67 1/3 innings.
"He worked so hard over the winter," Francona said of Anderson. "He's a big, strong kid. He didn't have a lot of flexibility. And, because of that, it was kind of hard for him to drive the ball down in the zone. He worked so hard at it at the strength and conditioning camp that, now all of a sudden, he's throwing the ball downhill. He's got a little two-seamer to go with it. So now, with all that strength and velocity, he's working down and he's having a lot of success."
