Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Anderson allowed one run on six hits while striking out six over 6 1/3 innings in his major league debut in a no-decision against the San Diego Padres Sunday, June 12.
Fantasy Tip: If Anderson earns another turn in the rotation, he could be a cheap alternative in DFS formats.

Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Anderson will make his MLB debut versus the San Diego Padres Sunday, June 12, in place of SP Eddie Butler.
Fantasy Tip: Anderson is a 26-year-old left-hander who went 2-2 with a 2.35 ERA over six starts for three different minor-league affiliates this year, with 13 walks and 30 strikeouts over 30 2/3 innings. He should be viewed as nothing more than an inexpensive flier option in DFS.

Colorado Rockies RP Jake McGee (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday, June 11, with left knee inflammation. RP Tyler Anderson was activated off the disabled list in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: McGee was tagged for four runs in two-thirds on an inning en route to suffering his third blown save, then underwent an MRI on Saturday, and the exam yielded less-than-favorable results. Manager Walt Weiss has yet to announce who will close in McGee's absence, but Jason Motte and Carlos Estevez are the two most likely candidates. Motte has closing experience, but Estevez has pitched the eighth inning more often for the Rockies and probably should be considered the slight favorite to pick up saves in the short term. He's worth a speculative short-term add in most leagues.

Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Anderson (oblique) said Tuesday, March 22, that he is getting close to feeling healthy enough to throw. He has been sidelined due to a strained right oblique.
Fantasy Tip: Anderson has had a history of injuries, so look for the team to be very, very careful and not push him too hard. He could be a solid fantasy option at some point if he can stay healthy for a stretch.
