Brett Anderson Leaves Early

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Brett Anderson left Sunday’s game early with a blister on his pitching hand. He does not believe he will need to miss a start and he should be good to go in four days.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

You can expect Brett Anderson to be a good bench player who will start in certain weeks the rest of the season. His 3.17 projected fantasy points puts him at #84 behind Rick Porcello and ahead of Johnny Cueto. He has averaged -0.45 fantasy points in his past 44 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 0.83 fantasy points.
