Indians SP Cody Anderson clobbered Monday by Royals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) It takes some poor pitching to raise an ERA from 0.89 to 3.26 in two starts. But Indians right-hander Cody Anderson has been up - or down - to the task.

Anderson, who performed brilliantly in his first four outings, was miserable for a second straight Monday night against visiting Kansas City. He allowed seven earned runs on eight hits in 5 2/3 innings with two walks and two strikeouts.

The game got away quickly as Eric Hosmer belted a three-run homer in the first inning. An Omar Infante blast made it 4-0 in the second, then Anderson was battered by an RBI single by Hosmer and two-run double by Kendrys Morales in the fifth. He survived that, but was taken out in the sixth.

Anderson has surrendered 11 runs in his last 8 1/3 innings pitched.


Indians' Cody Anderson can't get out of the third inning Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/22/2015) Indians right-hander Cody Anderson lasted just 2 2/3 innings in his start against the Brewers on Wednesday. The rookie starter allowed four runs on 10 hits, but was able to escape with a no-decision in the 7-5 victory. The young hurler was forced to throw 66 pitches and was able to record just eight outs on the afternoon.

This was by far the worst start of Anderson's young career, as he had gone at least six innings and allowed no more than one run in each of his first four outings. 

Anderson got off to a bad start on Wednesday, as he allowed three runs in the first inning, including a two-run home run by Adam Lind. But the Indians were able to rally back and take the lead after Anderson had left the game.

The rough outing inflated Anderson's ERA from 0.89 to 1.91. 


Indians announce rotation schedule following the All-Star break


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/11/2015) The Indians have set their rotation to begin the second half of the season. Trevor Bauer will get the ball in the first game after the All-Star break, with Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco to wrap-up the road series with the Reds. Danny Salazar will take the mound in the series-opener against the Brewers on July 21, with Cody Anderson going on Wednesday, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group. 

Indians SP Cody Anderson excels again in win over Astros


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/9/2015) Indians rookie starting pitcher Cody Anderson was dominant during his start on Thursday against the Astros.

Anderson threw 6 2/3 innings, allowed three hits and one earned run. He became the first pitcher in league history to throw at least 6 2/3 innings in his first four career starts and allow one run or fewer in each, per MLB.com. Anderson's lon mistake came on a Hank Conger solo home run in the third inning.

Anderson improved to 2-1 with the win, and has a 0.89 ERA through his four starts this season.


Indians rookie SP Cody Anderson great again, but falls to Pirates


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) 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
(6/29/2015) 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.


Orioles, Indians rained out Saturday, split DH Sunday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2015) The Indians' Saturday game at the Orioles was rained out. It will be rescheduled as part of a day-night doubleheader on Sunday. 

Chris Tillman, Saturday's scheduled starter, will start the second game, and Sunday's originally scheduled starter Ubaldo Jimenez will stay on schedule for the Orioles, starting the afternoon game.

Indians SP Cody Anderson dynamite in debut


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2015) 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
(6/19/2015) 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."

Michael Brantley and Cody Anderson scratched from Indians game


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2015) The Indians continue to battle a stomach bug that's spreading through the locker room.

Meanwhile, Brandon Moss, who missed the last two games with illness, returned to the Indians lineup on Sunday. Moss was fourth in the Indians' lineup, playing right field.

Cody Anderson turning into minor-league success story


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Indians prospect Cody Anderson has made a pretty smooth transition from a relief to starting pitcher role, and now the 2011 14th-round pick has blossomed into one of the team's top prospects.

Baseball America ranks the right-handed pitcher as the Indians' fifth-best prospect.

"There aren’t a lot a lot of stories of guys converting from relief to being a starter," vice president of player development Ross Atkins told MLB.com. "There are different reasons: It’s hard to be a starter. You have to be effective, durable and throw multiple pitches to throw for strikes. Scouts identified potential in him as a bullpen pitcher in college, then identified the person that would have the mental components to make the change. He’s arguably our best pitching prospect, with (Trevor) Bauer. He’s made himself into certainly someone who has all the attributes to make himself into a MLB starter."
