RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

The Rockies took a major risk in acquiring the polished, yet injury-prone Anderson from the Athletics last winter, but the gambit looked like it would pay off by midseason, as the lefty emerged as a veritable staff ace with a 2.84 ERA and 60 percent groundball rate over four July outings. Unfortunately, it was a fractured pinkie and eventual season-ending back surgery in August that added yet another chapter to Andersonís extensive injury history, preventing him from topping the 100-inning mark for the fourth consecutive season. Despite their annual need for pitching help and the flashes of frontline potential Anderson demonstrated last season, the Rockies were unwilling to pick up his $12 million option due to his continued inability to stay healthy. The Dodgers signed him to an incentive-laden one-year deal in December, where he will get an opportunity to get his career back on track.

2014

Anderson added to his injury-prone reputation by throwing just 44.2 innings in 2013 after suffering an ankle injury early in the season and never fully recovering. The difference in his 2013 campaign was that when he did actually pitch, he wasn't even remotely effective. Anderson compiled a 6.04 ERA in 2013 while making five starts and 11 relief appearances. The A's hoped he would provide a presence in the back end of the bullpen while also saving his arm, but his ERA was 4.71 as a reliever. Anderson does have a ton of potential and upside (he still struck out more than a batter per inning in 2013), but the likelihood of him ever cashing in on it lessens each season. The Rockies acquired Anderson in December, with the hope that he'll be able to overcome the injury bug and having to pitch half of his games at Coors Field.

2013

Anderson made a very successful return from Tommy John surgery and immediately slotted in as the A's ace down the stretch, making six regular season starts while compiling an ERA under 3.00 and a WHIP around 1.00. He did suffer a strained oblique in September, but looked fully recovered from that with a very effective outing in the ALDS. The main concern with Anderson is that his strikeout rate has never been as high as it was a rookie. The hope is the that the strikeouts pop back up with full health, and a healthy Anderson has a chance to move into the elite level of arms in the American League.

2012

Anderson underwent Tommy John surgery in July, which is expected to keep him sidelined until at least the All-Star break. He was humming right along with a tidy 2.77 ERA through his first seven starts, allowing 47 hits and a 35:8 K:BB over 48.2 innings, and tossing in a solid eight-inning start against the Angels in late May before leaving a start a week later and never returning. Anderson's arsenal featured a nasty slider prior to the injury, so it will be interesting to see how well and how often he's able to throw it upon his return. It's unlikely that he'll offer much more than 90 innings or so in 2012, but those in keeper leagues where Anderson is available won't want to forget about him.

2011

Anderson battled elbow problems for most of the first half of the season, limiting him to six starts before the All-Star break and just 19 overall. His strikeout rate dipped upon his return, perhaps a concession that his nasty slider was putting too much strain on his arm, as he fanned just 53 batters over his final 81.2 innings after returning from his second stint on the DL. His excellent control and home ballpark, combined with the A's offseason focus on getting more offense, should place him among the AL's elite if he can stay healthy, even if he doesn't approach 200 strikeouts in a full season.

2010

Anderson earned a spot in the A's rotation with a strong spring despite just six starts above Single-A entering the season. He was the A's ace by mid-season, posting a 3.48 ERA, 1.193 WHIP and a superb 86:20 K:BB rate over his final 14 starts covering 88 innings. He carved up righties, holding them to a .247 BAA and fanning 114 in 130.1 innings. He seems destined to be the next A's ace and should build upon a nice rookie season.

2009

Anderson continued to rocket through the minors, starting six games at Double-A Midland as a 20-year old. His composite season totals (105 innings, 95 hits, 27 walks, 118 Ks) and projectable frame (6'4 and left-handed) gives the A's a legit No. 1 starter prospect. A mid-season promotion to Triple-A Sacramento is all but a given, lining him up for a 2010 major-league debut.

2008

A 2006 second-round pick, Anderson has an excellent strikeout rate and command which drew a mid-season promotion to High-A Visalia and put him on the keeper league radar. The 6-4 southpaw finished his first season as a pro with a 125:21 K:BB ratio in 120.1 combined innings between Low- and High-A, which is even more impressive when you consider that Anderson was just 19 years old. His command and mound presence are well above average for his level of experience, a byproduct of his background as the son of highly-regarded college pitching coach - and current Oklahoma State manager - Frank Anderson. Anderson wasn't as lights out after his promotion to High-A, but he's got the potential to move fast through Oakland's system after coming over from Arizona in the Dan Haren trade.
