Dodgers P Brett Anderson strikes out 7 in fifth win of season


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2015) Dodgers pitcher Brett Anderson struck out seven batters in Wednesday night's 4-3 win over the Diamondbacks. 

Anderson only allowed one run and improved to 5-4 for the season. Anderson has been on a roll of late, allowing just two runs or less in seven of his past eight starts. Anderson now has a 3.00 ERA this season. 


Dodgers SP Brett Anderson dominant against Marlins on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/26/2015) Dodgers left-hander Brett Anderson was virtually untouchable against the Marlins on Friday. Anderson allowed just one run on five hits over seven innings in the 7-1 victory. Anderson walked one and matched a career-high with 10 strikeouts.

Anderson (4-4, 3.13 ERA) gave up an early run in the first inning, but cruised through the rest of the way. He struck out the side in order for his final inning of work on Friday.

"My stuff was probably the best overall that it's been with the sinker, and I got some strikeouts with the slider, which hasn't really quite been there," he said, per MLB.com. "I keep telling people that I think I'm a good pitcher and I know I'm a good pitcher. If I can just go out there and stay healthy ... it's kind of proven me right to this point."

Anderson even helped himself at the plate, driving in a run with a single in the fourth inning.

"Brett had a huge outing for us after the last couple of games in Chicago, where we taxed the 'pen pretty good," manager Don Mattingly said. "He pitches down and has a breaking ball that has bite. He can move the ball to both sides of the plate with the fastball, and it's always moving down."


Dodgers SP Brett Anderson shuts down Giants' offense on Sunday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/21/2015) Dodgers starter Brett Anderson was solid in his outing on Sunday against the Giants. Anderson, who was given 10 runs of support by his offense, finished six innings and gave up just one run on five hits. He walked two and struck out just one, but he was pretty much dominant from the get-go in this one.

The lone run scored on Anderson came in the third inning on an RBI single by Angel Pagan. Otherwise, the left-hander stymied the Giants' offense, as he picked up his third win of the season.

Anderson (3-4) will take a strong 3.29 ERA into his next start, which is scheduled for Friday against the Marlins in Miami.


Dodgers SP Brett Anderson receives no-decision in Tuesday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2015) Despite producing a solid outing Tuesday, Dodgers pitcher Brett Anderson received a no-decision during the 3-2 loss to the Rangers.

Anderson scattered eight hits which led to two runs over eight innings of work. He also struck out four and walked three during the outing. His ERA now stands at 3.43.

Despite producing a quality start in five of his last six starts, Anderson is winless in his last seven starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Sunday against the Giants.


Dodgers SP Brett Anderson hoping for no innings restrictions


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2015) An injury history could have the Dodgers concerned about left-hander Brett Anderson racking up big innings this season. But the loss of fellow starters Brandon McCarthy and Hyun-Jin Ryu for the year could require them to throw caution to the wind.

Anderson has pitched 167 innings over the last three seasons combined. He has tossed 68 already in 2015. The team has not given any indication they will put the reins on him at any point. He certainly hopes that remains the case.

"I feel good right now," he told the Los Angeles Times. Hopefully - knock on wood - I will continue to feel this way."

The Dodgers certainly need Anderson. They are about to embark on a schedule in which they play on 20 consecutive days. But pitching coach Rick Honeycutt has stated that the team would keep an eye on Anderson, who has been solid with a 3.57 ERA despite a 2-4 record.


Dodgers SP Brett Anderson tosses five innings in no-decision


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/11/2015) Dodgers starting pitcher Brett Anderson went five innings and earned a no-decision in a 7-6 win against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Anderson allowed four earned runs on eight hits, while striking out three batters and walking another.

Anderson (2-4) has a 3.57 ERA with 47 strikeouts in 68 innings this season.


Dodgers SP Brett Anderson endures tough-luck loss on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/6/2015) Dodgers starter Brett Anderson was solid in his outing on Friday against the Cardinals, but took a tough-luck loss. Anderson was out-dueled by Carlos Martinez, as the Dodgers fell 2-1. Anderson went 7 2/3 innings, allowing two runs on four hits. He struck out five and walked three, as he lowered his ERA to 3.29.

Anderson (2-4) took a shutout into the eighth inning, but he allowed an RBI single to Kolten Wong and a sacrifice fly to Matt Carpenter. That was the only damage against the left-hander, who has now posted quality starts in each of his last four outings.

He'll look to get back in the win column for the first time in a month during his next start, scheduled for Wednesday at home against the Diamondbacks.


Dodgers P Brett Anderson gets loss despite solid pitching day


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2015) Dodgers pitcher Brett Anderson struck out five batters in Sunday afternoon's 3-1 loss to the Cardinals. 

Anderson surrendered two earned runs on five hits. He walked three and allowed a home run. He now has an ERA of 3.42 for the year. Anderson's ERA has slowly started coming down from since late Aprl. 

On April 27, Anderson's ERA was 5.49. Since then, he's only allowed nine earned runs. Anderson now has a 2-3 record for the season. 

"Maybe the worst stuff I've ever had in a big-league game," he said to The Orange County Register. "There certainly aren't any moral victories here. But to make a quality start only giving up two runs against this team in this park with D-plus stuff, I kind of take solace in that."

His next start is projected for Friday when the Cardinals and Dodgers take each other on again. 


Back issue checks out for Dodgers SP Brett Anderson


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.

Anderson was checked by team trainers during Monday's contest because of back tightness. He was able to remain in the game and pitch seven innings. He remains on track to start Sunday against the Cardinals.


Dodgers pitcher Brett Anderson allows two runs in no-decision


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.


Mattingly: Starters will remain in line for weekend series


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The result is that Mike Bolsinger, Carlos Frias and Brett Anderson will be the starters in the weekend series against St. Louis, per the Orange County Register.

"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 R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Anderson surrendered a solo home run in the second inning, and he watched his second charged run score more than 80 minutes after he threw his last pitch, as a rain delay ended his night with just 88 pitches thrown.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"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.

Anderson, who is scheduled to be the fourth starter in Los Angeles' rotation, was not happy with his pitches in the game, reports MLB.com.

"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. My stuff was terrible, borderline embarrassing. My breaking ball was terrible, command was not very good. It happens."

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."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
