Brett Anderson Newsbeat

Dodgers’ Brett Anderson exits with injury | MLB.com

He has interesting injuries. I will give him that.

odgers starter Brett Anderson is no stranger to injuries. He’s had three surgeries throughout his Major League career and can list problems to his back, fingers, ankle, forearm and knee among his ailments.

But in the Dodgers’ 4-3 loss to the Braves on Tuesday night, the 27-year-old lefty felt discomfort in an area he’s never injured before: his left Achilles.
Anderson had to leave the game in the third inning after tweaking the tendon and feeling further discomfort as he came off the mound to field his position. He initially felt it on a chopper from Andrelton Simmons in the first inning, but the breaking point came in the third, when he went to field a swinging bunt from Jonny Gomes.
...
Even with Anderson’s injury history, there’s optimism that a DL stint won’t be necessary. Anderson said a doctor examined him after the game and found the tendon to be “intact” with no tear.
“There wasn’t a pop or anything like that,” Anderson said after the game, boot on his left foot. “It’s kind of a sketchy area, but hopefully I caught it soon enough where it’s not going to be a big issue. We’ll know more [Wednesday], but the level [of concern]—at least right now—is not too concerned.”

Brett Anderson Pitches Dodgers Past Slumping Marlins 7-1 - The New York Times

Brett Anderson has made 15 starts without exploding!

Brett Anderson tied a career high with 10 strikeouts and allowed only one fly ball in seven innings Friday night to help the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 7-1 victory over the Miami Marlins, who lost their fifth straight game.

Giancarlo Stanton may be hurt, though.

Stanton winced as he swung and missed for strike three in the ninth. He said he hurt his hand earlier in the game, and the injury progressively became more painful.
