Updating a previous report, an X-ray confirmed Colorado Rockies SP Brett Anderson (finger) has a broken left finger, and he is expected to be sidelined four to six weeks depending on how quickly the bone heals to allow him to grip a ball.
Fantasy Tip: Franklin Morales appears to be a short-term replacement option for Anderson. However, Jhoulys Chacin will make a minor-league rehab outing this week, and might be back as soon as April 28.

The Colorado Rockies acquired SP Brett Anderson and cash considerations from the Oakland Athletics Tuesday, Dec. 10, in exchange for Ps Drew Pomeranz and Chris Jensen.
Fantasy Tip: Anderson's value has tanked the last few years because he hasn't been able to stay healthy. With that still clouding his future, the move to Coors Field should turn what little hope any of us had left for him down the drain. Pomeranz must show better control to become relevant in the majority of fantasy leagues, but the move to Oakland may put him on many a sleeper list for 2014.
