Rangers' Grant Anderson: Throws four relief innings
Anderson allowed three hits and struck out three over four scoreless relief innings in Saturday's 8-3 loss to the Nationals.
Anderson entered after a 77-minute rain delay prior to the fourth inning and gave the Rangers what they needed. Texas was down 8-0 at the time, as starter Andrew Heaney left the team in a hole before the rain fell. Anderson, who threw a season-high four innings and the most since his college days, gave the Rangers a chance to claw their way back. Anderson has a 3.86 ERA over 23.1 innings (16 appearances) this season but had entered the contest with an 8.59 ERA over his previous 7.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Grant Anderson: Unable to preserve lead
Anderson allowed two runs on three hits and a walk over one inning in Monday's 4-3 win over St. Louis.
Anderson, making his third career MLB appearance, entered the eighth inning with Texas ahead, 3-1, but was unable to hold the lead. It was the second consecutive outing in which the rookie reliever was called on to protect an eighth-inning lead. While the Rangers are a juggernaut these days, the team's Achilles' heel has been the bullpen's ability to hold leads in the seventh and eighth innings. Texas manager Bruce Bochy believes Anderson can fill the role, and it's likely he'll be given high-leverage chances going forward. Anderson has allowed five hits and one walk while striking out eight over 4.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Grant Anderson: Used in eighth inning
Anderson allowed one hit and struck out one over a scoreless eighth inning to earn a hold in Friday's 2-0 win over Seattle.
Anderson got the call in the eighth inning to protect a 1-0 lead ahead of closer Will Smith pitching the ninth. The 25-year-old right-hander made his second appearance since being called up and threw strikes on 10 of 14 offerings. He's struck out eight of the 12 batters he's faced so far. "The first time you meet this kid, you see he's loaded with confidence," Texas manager Bruce Bochy told Shawn McFarland of the Dallas Morning News. "He has no fear, that's why he was out there [in the eighth inning]." Anderson could be the answer for the Rangers' most glaring need: the setup and high-leverage crew in the bullpen. The bullpen has the league's eighth-worst ERA at 4.44; in high-leverage situations it balloons to 11.39, per Fangraphs.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Grant Anderson: Dazzles in MLB debut
Anderson (1-0) earned the win Tuesday against the Tigers. He allowed a hit while striking out seven over 2.2 scoreless innings.
Anderson was dominant out of the bullpen Tuesday, striking out all but two of the batters he faced to earn a win in his major-league debut. The 25-year-old right-hander pitched to a 3.54 ERA across 28 innings between Double-A and Triple-A this season, logging 47 strikeouts in that span. While it's easy to overreact to a performance like Tuesday's, Anderson has the stuff to eventually carve out a high-leverage role in Texas' bullpen.... See More ... See Less
