Anderson struck out three, ending the game with a 6.34 ERA and 1.70 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Anderson found a landing spot in Toronto, but that might not be where his future is.
Sep. 29 8:53 AM PT9:53 AM MT10:53 AM CT11:53 AM ET11:53 ET15:53 GMT23:53 8:53 AM MST10:53 AM EST11:23 AM VEN19:53 UAE10:53 AM CT-Anderson (blister) has been cleared to start Sunday against the Yankees.
Analysis: The blister problem plagued Anderson in his last two starts. It's a bad idea to use him on the final day of the regular season, however, considering he is 0-5 with a 7.92 ERA in six career starts versus the Yankees.
Sep. 26 11:15 PM PT12:15 AM MT1:15 AM CT2:15 AM ET2:15 ET6:15 GMT14:15 11:15 PM MST1:15 AM EST1:45 AM VEN10:15 UAE1:15 AM CT-Brett Anderson improved to 4-4, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks in 5.0 innings, as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Boston Red Sox 6-4 on Monday. Anderson struck out three, ending the game with a 6.97 ERA and 1.81 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Anderson wasn't great, though this was a major improvement over the eight runs in 1 1/3 innings he allowed to the Royals in his previous start. The oft-injured lefty was pulled after 80 pitches after developing a blister, so it's likely this will be his final outing of the season.

Anderson struck out one, ending the game with a 7.15 ERA and 1.81 WHIP on the season.

Anderson struck out four, ending the game with a 5.73 ERA and 1.66 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Anderson said a blister on his index finger started bothering him later in the game, leading to his early exit. It's unclear if he will miss his next scheduled start.

Anderson (1-0) won in his Wrigley Field debut for the Cubs, allowing three hits but walking four.
Analysis: The lefty lowered his ERA to 0.84 through two starts with his new club.
Apr. 8 10:17 AM PT11:17 AM MT12:17 PM CT1:17 PM ET13:17 ET17:17 GMT1:17 10:17 AM MST12:17 PM EST12:47 PM VEN21:17 UAE12:17 PM CT-Anderson had a strong Cubs debut in a no-decision Friday, giving up one run, five hits and a walk in 5 2/3 innings while striking out four against Milwaukee.
Analysis: Anderson was limited to four appearances with the Dodgers last year mostly because of a back problem, but he won the No. 5 spot in Chicago's rotation in spring training and could soon be fantasy relevant. After all, Cubs coaches helped make Jake Arrieta and Kyle Hendricks into studs.
