Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson allowed one unearned run on six hits and a walk over five innings to record his second win of the season Friday, May 8. With the game being called due to severe weather in the fifth inning, Anderson was credited with a complete game.
Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) only struck out one hitter, but that has never been a huge part of his mound game, as he has a career 6.9 K/9. So far this season, he has a 4.7 mark, so perhaps an uptick in punchouts is coming. Still, through six starts, his 3.52 ERA and 1.37 WHIP hold value in deep mixed and NL-only formats. Plus, pitching for the first-place Dodgers should help Anderson pad the win column. He is a nice low-priced starter for FantasyScore players, too.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson (back) is having his workload managed as he returns from lower back surgery. Every Los Angeles pitcher who threw a bullpen session Friday, Feb. 20, threw again Sunday, Feb. 22, except for Anderson. He played extra catch instead expects to throw a bullpen session Monday, Feb. 23.
Fantasy Tip: Anderson is expected to be the team's fifth starter. In many places that wouldn't mean much for fantasy owners, but the Dodgers will be contenders and he could face some favorable pitching matchups if he can revert back to form and stay healthy.

Los Angeles Dodgers general manager Farhan Zaidi said the team's signings of Brett Anderson and Brandon McCarthy have taken them out of the running for any big-name starting pitchers that remain in free agency. "We don't comment on specific free agents or specific economic classes of free agents, but like I said, our focus on the starting pitching side is going to be depth options either at Triple-A or guys who could potentially serve as a long man in the bullpen," Zaidi said.
