    News: Anderson (1-0) was tagged for six runs on eight hits while striking out five over 3.2 innings but escaped with a no-decision in Tuesday's 9-7 win over the Brewers.
    Impact: He threw 42 of 60 pitches for strikes, but too many of the left-hander's pitches got more of the plate than he wanted, as six of the Brewers' eight hits against him went for extra bases. Anderson's next start will come Monday on the road in Pittsburgh.
    Rotowire: Apr 13 / 4:16p ET
    News: Anderson (1-0) pitched five shutout innings with two strikeouts during Thursday's 4-0 win over Los Angeles.
    Impact: Anderson likely got a bit lucky Thursday, as he escaped some danger and allowed seven baserunners (three hits and four walks). The veteran has never been a strong source of strikeouts, but with a 0.84 ERA and potent lineup supporting him, he's in position to take a run at double-digit wins. Additionally, Anderson entered Thursday's outing with a career 58.1 groundball percentage, so Chicago's talented infield will also help his case.

    News: Anderson beat his former team with five solid innings as the Chicago Cubs blanked the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-0. Anderson (1-0) won in his Wrigley Field debut for the Cubs, allowing three hits but walking four.
    Impact: The lefty lowered his ERA to 0.84 through two starts with his new club.
    Rotowire: Apr 8 / 9:33a ET
    News: Anderson pitched 5.2 innings and gave up just five hits and one earned run in Friday's a no-decision against the Brewers. He struck out four.
    Impact: The Cubs ultimately lost in 11 innings. It was a good team debut for the lefty, who battled Mike Montgomery for the No. 5 spot in the rotation during spring training. The talent has always been there for Anderson, but staying healthy has been a challenge. He's scheduled to face the Dodgers on Wednesday in his next start.
    StatsLLC: Apr 8 / 12:00a ET
    News: Anderson had a strong Cubs debut in a no-decision Friday, giving up one run, five hits and a walk in 5 2/3 innings while striking out four against Milwaukee.
    Impact: Anderson was limited to four appearances with the Dodgers last year mostly because of a back problem, but he won the No. 5 spot in Chicago's rotation in spring training and could soon be fantasy relevant. After all, Cubs coaches helped make Jake Arrieta and Kyle Hendricks into studs.
