Brian Anderson Outrighted To Triple-A

The Atlanta Braves outrighted infielder Brian Anderson to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday. Anderson was activated from the 10-day injured list last Wednesday but now is off the 40-man roster after playing in just one game for the Braves last week. The 31-year-old veteran third baseman has appeared in just three games for Atlanta in 2024 and is hitless in five at-bats with two strikeouts. He'll report to Gwinnett for the second half of the season and will hope to rejoin the Braves' big-league roster at some point as infield depth. In his eight years in the big leagues (six with the Miami Marlins) since debuting in 2017, Anderson has a .251/.336/.403 slash line with 66 homers, 273 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 630 games played. Anderson isn't anywhere on the fantasy radar this year.

Mariners Release Brian Anderson

The Seattle Mariners released third baseman Brian Anderson on Tuesday. The 30-year-old signed a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training this off-season in hopes that he could win a platoon/backup role. While he did slash .250/.344/.536 in 28 Cactus League at-bats, it wasn't enough to earn a spot. Injuries have hindered Anderson's career, and he hasn't hit above .250 since 2020. At this point, he may try to find another team to join where he could have a clearer path to a role.

Brian Anderson, Trevor Kelley Sign Minors Deals With Mariners

The Seattle Mariners signed free-agent infielder Brian Anderson and right-hander Trevor Kelley to minor-league deals on Friday, according to sources. Both players will receive invites to major-league spring training. The 30-year-old Anderson really struggled in 96 games for the Milwaukee Brewers last year, slashing .226/.310/.368 with nine home runs, 40 RBI and 38 runs scored in 361 trips to the plate before being released after the season. If he makes Seattle's roster, he'll probably serve in a backup or platoon role at third base, at best, with Luis Urias. Kelley, 31, will be looking to serve as relief depth for the Mariners, but he's unlikely to make the big-league roster out of camp. Kelley has a career 6.75 ERA and 1.56 WHIP with 45 strikeouts in 50 2/3 innings in four major-league seasons.

Garrett Mitchell Reinstated, Brian Anderson DFA'd

The Milwaukee Brewers reinstated outfielder Garrett Mitchell (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list on Thursday and designated infielder/outfielder Brian Anderson for assignment in a corresponding move. Mitchell is starting in center field and batting ninth on Thursday against St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Dakota Hudson. Mitchell has been out since April 18 due to a shoulder injury that he had surgery on, so fantasy managers can't really expect much through the end of the regular season on Sunday. But the 25-year-old gives Milwaukee another outfield option as they get ready for the playoffs. Anderson had seen his playing time dip dramatically recently and was hitting only .226/.310/.368 on the season with nine home runs and 40 RBI in 318 at-bats.

Brian Anderson Back From Injured List

The Milwaukee Brewers activated third baseman Brian Anderson (back) from the 10-day injured list on Thursday. In corresponding moves, right-hander Trevor Megill and infielder Abraham Toro were optioned to Triple-A Nashville. Anderson will return to Milwaukee after almost three weeks on the shelf with a back strain, but he won't be in the starting lineup on Thursday against the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates. The 30-year-old had cooled off in June before getting hurt, and he's returning to a .229/.317/.373 slash line with nine home runs, 38 RBI and 35 runs scored for the Brew Crew in 292 at-bats. Anderson is only a corner-infield option in deep-mixed and NL-only leagues in a part-time role at the hot corner for the Brewers.

Brian Anderson Expected To Return In August

Milwaukee Brewers' third baseman/outfielder Brian Anderson (back) isn't expected to return from the injured list until early-to-mid August. He has been sidelined since July 16 after suffering a lower-back strain. The 30-year-old took grounders and hit in the cage earlier in the week. Anderson is slashing .229/.317/.373 with nine homers and 38 RBI over 383 plate appearances in 2023. The Brewers recently acquired first baseman Carlos Santana from the Pittsburgh Pirates, potentially taking at-bats away from Anderson once he returns. Andruw Monasterio will continue to handle the hot corner while Anderson is sidelined.

Brian Anderson Gets Infield Work On Friday

Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Brian Anderson (back) took grounders ahead of Friday's game versus the Atlanta Braves. The 30-year-old was forced to the injured list on July 16 after suffering a lower-back strain while handling grounders two days earlier. Anderson isn't slated to start swinging again until early next week. The big-armed Anderson signified a valuable early-season fantasy addition while riding a white-hot start, but he came down to earth in a big way thereafter. He was hitting just .211 with a .570 OPS in his most recent 114 at-bats prior to this setback. Even with Anderson potentially back as early as next weekend, fantasy managers might be able find a stronger IL stash on waiver wires outside of NL-only leagues.

Brian Anderson Lands On 10-Day Injured List

The Milwaukee Brewers placed infielder/outfielder Brian Anderson (back) on the 10-day injured list (retroactive to July 13) on Sunday with a lower-back strain and recalled infielder Jahmai Jones from Triple-A Nashville in a corresponding move. It remains to be seen if Anderson will be able to return when his 10 days on the injured list are up. With the 30-year-old on the shelf, Andruw Monasterio will make his third straight start at the hot corner on Sunday and will hit seventh against Cincinnati Reds right-hander Ben Lively. Anderson isn't a must-stash in deep-mixed fantasy leagues, especially if he misses extended time, as he's hitting just .229 (67-for-292) on the year with nine home runs, 11 doubles, two triples, 38 RBI and 35 runs scored in 334 trips to the plate over 85 games played.

Brian Anderson Remains Out On Saturday

Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Brian Anderson (back) remains out of the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Cincinnati Reds. The 30-year-old was a late scratch on Friday due to back discomfort. It appears Anderson is still dealing with the issue, so he'll sit out at least one more game. Andruw Monasterio will cover third base and bat seventh versus left-hander Andrew Abbott on Saturday.

Brian Anderson Scratched On Friday

Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Brian Anderson (back) has been scratched from the starting lineup ahead of Friday's game against the Cincinnati Reds. The right-handed slugger has been pulled from the lineup due to lower back discomfort. Andruw Monasterio will cover third base and bat sixth versus right-hander Graham Ashcraft. The assumption is that this is a minor injury and Anderson should be back in a few days. Fantasy managers should adjust their lineups with Anderson out on Friday.
