RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Matt Anderson.

2006

Anderson is the proud owner of a triple-digit fastball and a 5.19 ERA over 256.2 career innings. He pitched 10 innings with the Rockies last year and walked 11 batters before being demoted to Triple-A. If he can show some consistency at the major league level in 2006 he will be used primarily as a late-inning reliever, possibly even earning a vulture save here or there. But that's a big if.

2005

After posting a 13.97 ERA during spring training, Anderson was sent to Triple-A Toledo, where he spent the entire 2004 season. He could make it back to the majors sometime this year, but it won't be with the Tigers, who released him over the offseason.

2004

Anderson started the season as the team's closer and got hit very hard, eventually losing the closer's spot and being sent to the minor leagues. He never managed to show consistency upon being called back, after having to try to re-invent himself at Triple-A Toledo. He'll be in the closer mix for the Tigers, but he's probably behind Danny Patterson, Al Levine, and Fernando Rodney in the pecking order, although manager Alan Trammell managed to change closers a number of times last year.

2003

A torn muscle in his right shoulder cost Anderson four months (surgery wasn't needed), but Anderson at least had the dedication to take his rehab seriously and make a courtesy appearance at the end of the year. A lot of people will concede the closer job to Franklyn German, but he still has to beat out Anderson. One caveat -- the Tigers would love to deal Anderson, if possible, as he's already worth a fair amount of money for a 26-year-old reliever. He's in the second year of a $9.7 million contract.
