    Anderson (back) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Tennessee on Sunday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Impact

    Anderson continues to slowly work his way back from a back injury that has kept him on the shelf since early May. Seeing as he's been sidelined for such an extended period of time, he'll likely need to make multiple rehab starts before being ready to rejoin the big club.

    News

    Anderson (back) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Thursday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

    Impact

    The move to the 60-day disabled list opens a spot on the 40-man roster for Seth Frankoff, whose contract was selected in a corresponding move. Fortunately, there is no reported setback accompanying Anderson's move over to the 60-day DL, so his timetable for a return isn't greatly affected. Anderson has been on the shelf since early-May, so a return shortly before the All-Star break remains a possibility.

    Anderson (back) will throw a three-inning simulated game at extended spring training Monday, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Impact

    Anderson has been out since early May, but it seems like he's making steady progress in his rehab program. If all goes well Monday night, the next step would seemingly be to ramp up his inning count prior to embarking on a full-fledged rehab assignment.

    News

    Anderson (back) is headed to extended spring training to continue his rehab, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

    Impact

    Apparently all went well with Anderson's bullpen session Tuesday, so he'll head to Arizona as he continues to progress in his recovery. The 29-year-old is expected to face live hitters there for the first time since landing on the disabled list. A return date should start to become clearer if he is able to get through the live BP without a hitch.

    Anderson (back) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

    Impact

    This is the first reported progress Anderson has made since landing on the disabled list on May 7. It's unclear how close the southpaw is to returning to the rotation, but more details should emerge once he takes the next step in his recovery process.
