San Francisco Giants Player News: Pitchers

News: Anderson allows a run on a hit and two walks in two-thirds of an inning in Saturday's 10-5 win over the Athletics.
Impact: The Giants held a six-run lead when Anderson entered in the eighth inning, and he was tagged for an RBI double by Josh Phegley during the appearance. It was his first appearance since Aug. 7 after missing time with a finger injury. Anderson is expected to feature out of the bullpen going forward. He owns a 5.40 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 17 outings, the previous 16 coming as a starter.
News: Bumgarner allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out five over five innings in a no-decision versus the Athletics on Saturday.
Impact: It wasn't the most efficient outing for the southpaw, who needed 97 pitches to complete the five frames. Bumgarner allowed a solo shot to Mark Canha and an RBI double to Matt Chapman as the only runs against him. He now has a 3.71 ERA and 1.10 WHIP over 169.2 innings this season. Bumgarner is expected to face the Padres on Friday in his next start.
News: Manger Bruce Bochy said Anderson will move to the bullpen and work as a long reliever, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Impact: Anderson was activated off the 10-day injured list Saturday and was expected to rejoin the starting rotation, but he'll instead shift to a bullpen role. The 24-year-old has a 5.33 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 55:31 K:BB in 16 starts (82.2 innings), and he figures to be one of the top options for any potential spot starts.
News: Anderson (finger) was activated from the injured list Saturday.
Impact: Anderson was placed on the injured list on Aug. 8 due to a blister. However, he completed a rehab start and is now ready to rejoin the big-league rotation. It's unclear when he will make his first start, though Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle speculated that he'll start either Monday or Tuesday.
