Tyler Anderson News
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Tyler Anderson (knee) has been placed on the 15-day injured list on Saturday. The left-hander originally had his start pushed back and was supposed to start on Sunday. That won't happen as Anderson will be shut down for the rest of the season. He'll finish the season with a 5.43 ERA, 1.49 WHIP through 141 innings with the Angels. It's uncertain who the Angels will pitch on Sunday with Anderson out for the rest of 2023.
Los Angeles Angels left-hander Tyler Anderson (knee) is having his start pushed back to Sunday against the Minnesota Twins on the road because of some knee discomfort. Davis Daniels will be recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake to pitch for the Angels on Friday, and they may use an opener in front of him. Left-hander Kenny Rosenberg will take the mound in Minnesota on Saturday. It's not a serious injury for Anderson, but it's something that will make him even more risky as a deep-league streamer for fantasy purposes. The 33-year-old southpaw was good for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2022, but he hasn't been nearly as good with the Halos this year, posting a 5.43 ERA in his 27 outings (25 starts).
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Tyler Anderson climbs the hill for Sunday's start against the Oakland Athletics. The 34-year-old's 2022 All-Star campaign with the crosstown-rival Los Angeles Dodgers appears to have been a mirage at this point, limping to a dismal 5.58 ERA and 1.55 WHIP with 103 strikeouts in 122 2/3 innings in Anaheim this year. Anderson has a shot to improve on those shaky figures in a prime spot versus Oakland, who he displays a splendid 0.79 ERA with 17 punchouts in 22 2/3 career frames against dating back to 2020. The crafty lefty doesn't miss a ton of bats, but season-long fantasy managers could probably find worse than Anderson in as good a matchup he'll see this season.
Starting pitcher Tyler Anderson had a career year with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2022 before signing as a free agent with the Los Angeles Angels. Over 28 starts, the right-hander posted a 2.57 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 19.5% strikeout rate with 15 victories. It was a surprising performance after Anderson pitched to a 4.62 ERA and 1.31 WHIP across his first six big league seasons. He did an excellent job limiting hard contact, with 98th-percentile average exit velocity and 91st-percentile barrel rate, but he's typically been good in that area. Anderson's also not a ground ball pitcher (41.1% career ground ball rate), had a .256 BABIP, and his HR/9 was 1.46 just a year ago before managing a career-low 0.71 mark in 2022. The 33-year-old works with a four-pitch mix; four-seamer, changeup, cutter, and sinker. Anderson upped the usage of his best pitch, his changeup, by 7% from the year before, as batters put up just a .223 xwOBA and a 37% whiff percentage this season. However, his fastball was his favorite offering but had batters whiffing just 18.6% and owned a .341 xwOBA. Anderson gets opponents to chase (33.4% and 35.3% chase rate in 2021 and 2022, respectively), but they don't miss much when they do, making contact 60.5% of the time this year. The Angels aren't the juggernaut like the Dodgers, so he won't win 15 games, especially if his ERA balloons. Fantasy managers are buying in on the late-career renaissance, but drafting Anderson at his ADP of 273 is too early for little strikeouts and increased ratios.
