Brett Anderson allowed three hits without giving up a run in 5.0 innings as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the New York Yankees 2-1 on Sunday. Anderson struck out three, ending the game with a 6.34 ERA and 1.70 WHIP on the season.
Anderson found a landing spot in Toronto, but that might not be where his future is.
Anderson fanned three and threw five scoreless innings against the Yankees on Sunday, but he did not factor in the decision.
The 29-year-old left-hander will hit the open market this offseason, after spending time with the Cubs and Blue Jays in 2017. With 66.2 innings in the big leagues over the past two seasons following a 180.1-inning performance with the Dodgers in 2015, Anderson will likely latch on with another club on a low-risk deal with the hope of competing for a rotation spot during spring training.
Anderson (blister) has been cleared to start Sunday against the Yankees.
The blister problem plagued Anderson in his last two starts. It's a bad idea to use him on the final day of the regular season, however, considering he is 0-5 with a 7.92 ERA in six career starts versus the Yankees.
Anderson (finger) will get the nod Sunday against the Yankees, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Anderson was dealing with blistering in his last start, and has dealt with injuries all season -- he will start only his 13th game of the year Sunday. He will look to end 2017 on a high note after a disappointing season in which he accrued a 6.97 ERA and 1.81 WHIP across 50.1 innings. The 29-year-old will enter free agency again this winter.
Anderson left Monday's game after aggravating the "hot spot" on his left index finger, TV broadcaster Hazel Mae reports.
The lefty went deep enough to pick up the win, but with the finger issue returning, Anderson's status for his final turn is up in the air. Before this problem surfaced, Anderson once again missed time with a back injury, continuing a trend of poor health that has unfortunately defined his career. The 29-year-old will be a free agent again this winter.
