Updating a previous report, Colorado Rockies SP Brett Anderson (back) is likely headed for the 15-day disabled list after leaving his start Tuesday, Aug. 5, against the Chicago Cubs due to a back injury. Manager Walt Weiss said Anderson's injury "does not look good right now."
Fantasy Tip: Franklin Morales was demoted to the bullpen earlier in the day in favor of Yohan Flande, but now both might have a place in the rotation if Anderson is sidelined.

Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the rest of the year, according to a major league source. He'll likely have the procedure sometime next week, and he'll likely miss most, if not all, of next year. Chatwood went 1-0 with a 4.34 ERA in four starts this season. It'll be Chatwood's second Tommy John surgery.
Fantasy Tip: The Rockies' rotation really takes a hit with this news. It's good news for Brett Anderson and Jair Jurrjens, though, as Jhoulys Chacin is also likely out for the year, and Jordan Lyles remains on the DL. Anderson and Jurrjens should be owned in NL leagues if you're in need of starting pitching.
