by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) After experiencing a back issue during Monday's start, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said pitcher Brett Anderson had no issues with his back Tuesday, reports MLB.com.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Dodgers pitcher Brett Anderson allowed two runs on seven hits in seven innings of work in Los Angeles' 6-3 win over the Braves on Monday, but did not factor into a decision. 

Anderson cruised through the first three innings of the game before having issues in the fourth. After a single by Johnny Gomes, he advanced to second on a groundout. Gomes then scored an a Pedro Ciriaco single to center. Then in the fifth, Anderson allowed another run on an RBI single by Freddie Freeman.

Anderson was checked out by team doctors in the fifth inning because of back tightness, but he managed to stay in the game and finish the inning. Anderson noted it did throw off his mechanics, according to TrueBlueLA.com, but will take precaution as a back injury forced him to miss time in 2014.

Anderson, who remains 2-2, moved his ERA to 3.47 in 49 1/3 innings of work. He will look to get back on track Sunday against the Cardinals.

"We haven't really talked about the doubleheader yet," manager Don Mattingly said to MLB.com. "We don't plan on moving anyone up [before the doubleheader]. We're going to keep everyone in place. If there are extra days in place, we'll give everyone an extra day."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Anderson was charged with four runs on nine hits and no walks while striking out one over four innings of a 6-2 defeat.

"The only real legitimate run was the [Buster] Posey single," Anderson said, per MLB.com. "I still feel confident in my abilities. The defense couldn't have done any more than they did today, it was just some well-placed hits that you have to deal with and go on to next one."

Anderson has allowed three earned runs in two of his first three starts. He owns a 4.20 ERA, a 1.47 WHIP and an 8:2 K:BB ratio over 15 innings. He will face Brandon Morrow and the Padres in San Diego on Sunday. He has not faced the Padres since 2009.

"Physically I feel fine and that's all you can ask for," said Anderson, who is coming off back surgery. "It's crazy I gave up only two runs, but that's because of defense and I made some pitches.

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."

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."
