Starting Pitchers:

Chase Anderson, Diamondbacks-Anderson's big league debut Sunday against the White Sox was a success as he allowed just a solo homer to Moises Sierra over 5.1 innings, striking out six against two hits and a walk. After getting cuffed around in Triple-A Reno last year, the Diamondbacks made the tough decision to send him back down to Double-A Mobile to begin 2014, where he thrived with a 0.69 ERA and 38:6 K:BB over 39 innings. Don't be surprised if more teams start avoiding the PCL with their pitching prospects, particularly those in high-octane environments like Reno. Anderson is no spring chicken - age 26 - nor does he have the pedigree of organization teammates Archie Bradley and Braden Shipley. Anderson is not a hard thrower, so there's some concern that he'll go back to nibbling as he did in Reno last year once he experiences Chase Field. Bid cautiously. Mixed: $1; NL: $4.
