Anderson quietly posted a 3.02 ERA after the All-Star break in 2016, and he did not slow down last year, finishing the season with easily the best ERA and WHIP of his career. An injury he suffered while hitting cost him two months right in the middle of his campaign, but he was a model of consistency over his final 16 starts, giving up more than two earned runs just four times over that span and never giving up more than three runs when he did. Two keys to success for Anderson last year were an improved fastball (93.1 mph) and the best home-run prevention numbers of his career. His strikeouts will not wow fantasy owners, but the Brewers showed their belief in him by inking him to a four-year extension over the offseason. If Anderson can maintain his increased velocity and keep the ball in the park, both the team and fantasy owners will be happy with their investment in 2018.

  2. Chase Anderson 2017 Preseason Outlook
    For the second straight year, Anderson threw just over 150 below-average innings. Anderson was touched up for 28 home runs in 30 starts and has still yet to finish a season with a HR/9 below 1.0. Until he can fix that, it will be hard to believe in Anderson's ability, especially considering he also is the owner of a mediocre 2.5 K/BB. But if there is any reason to believe, it can be seen in his post-All-Star performance. In his final 13 starts of the season, Anderson managed a 3.02 ERA with 53 strikeouts over 65.2 innings. However, even during Anderson's best stretch of the year, hitters still managed 10 home runs and a .460 slugging percentage against him. He'll reliably eat some innings, but Anderson has proven too hittable over the course of his career to believe he'll turn into anything more than a back-end starter at this point.
  3. Chase Anderson 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Anderson was second on the Arizona staff last year with 152.7 innings pitched, though the results were average at best. He went 6-6, while compiling a 4.30 ERA and 1.30 WHIP. His 4.14 FIP and 4.17 xFIP suggest he could be slightly better than he was last season, although he is still not a very exciting fantasy pitcher. His strikeout rate also regressed in his second major league season, falling from 8.3 K/9 in 2014 to 6.5 in 2015. The Brewers saw something they liked, however, and acquired him as part of the haul for Jean Segura. The move increases Anderson's fantasy floor, as he is assured a rotation spot to start the season in Milwaukee, whereas he would have been a bullpen arm in Arizona. However, now that he is with the rebuilding Brewers, wins will be difficult to come by, and he is unlikely to make up for that with ratios and strikeouts.
  4. Chase Anderson 2015 Preseason Outlook
    Anderson spent the bulk of his rookie year with an ERA in the 3.00s, but a pair of six-run outings in his final six starts helped push his final mark up to 4.01. Like so many other Arizona arms, Anderson struggled with home runs, so the low-3.00s ERA he carried through 15 starts felt a bit unstable, though, interestingly, he didn’t give up a single homer in either of those six-run meltdowns late in the season. Already 27, he is a bit of a late bloomer, which makes it tough to add any real projection to what we saw in 2014. He missed enough bats to contribute in the category, but there was too much traffic on the basepaths -- a factor that makes the home run troubles even more concerning. The former ninth-round pick is penciled in for a rotation spot, but if the team adds outside options or a prospect proves ready sooner than expected, Anderson will be among the first to lose his spot.
  5. Chase Anderson 2014 Preseason Outlook
    Anderson spent the 2013 campaign at the Triple-A level in Reno in the tough Pacific Coast League. It was a year of regression for the 26-year-old, who walked more batters (33) in fewer innings (88) than he did in 2012 (25 walks in 104 innings). Control has been his strong suit in his career so far, but he has a lot of other young pitchers within the organization to compete with to make the big league roster out of spring training.
  6. Chase Anderson 2013 Preseason Outlook
    Anderson went to the Arizona Fall League to build up his workload following a Double-A season that was cut to 104 innings because of an elbow injury. Although he turned 25 in November, Anderson's age is less of a concern than it might be otherwise as he pitched in college and has been slowed by injuries throughout his professional career. If his 97:25 K:BB with Double-A Mobile is any indication, there's a big league future here, although he's often left out of conversations about the organization's supply of young pitching talent. Anderson does not throw hard, but he boasts a four-pitch arsenal that he controls well. As a result, he may become an option for the back of the Arizona rotation.
