Dodgers' Brett Anderson pleased with minor-league start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Dodgers pitcher Brett Anderson pitched into the sixth inning in a minor-league game Tuesday and came away pleased with his performance, MLB.com reports.

"It was good," Anderson said. "You never know what to expect in a 'B' game. I got my work in with an asterisk. I was only going five, but my pitch count was efficient and I'd rather get fatigued on the mound in a game than throw more in the bullpen. My stuff was better, crisper."

Anderson, who is locked into a rotation spot this season, has surrendered three earned runs in 6 2/3 innings in Cactus League play.


Dodgers P Brett Anderson not bothered by rough outing


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2015) Despite a rough outing against the Angels, Dodgers pitcher Brett Anderson seems undeterred by Thursday's outcome, per MLB.com.

After warming up, Anderson heard news that the Angels' bus would be late to the game. He tried to not use that fact as an excuse.

"For the most part, pitchers are pretty particular about what they do," Anderson said. "To have that kind of interrupted, I'm not using it as an excuse, but it's just one of those circumstances that you didn't expect to deal with going into it."

The Angels pounced on Anderson as they delivered three runs on seven hits against the pitcher in 1 2/3 innings pitched, according to MLB.com. 

"It wasn't like I was walking a bunch of people, I was just missing," Anderson said. "My stuff wasn't very crisp. ... It was terrible by all standards, but better to get it out of the way now."

Anderson was seeing live action for only the third time since undergoing back surgery in August. In five innings pitched up until Thursday, he held opposing teams scoreless.

"I was able to go out there twice and throw a bunch of pitches and come out of it fine physically; that's a win in itself," he said. "But up to the standards of pitching that I hold myself too, it wasn't positive by any means."
