Ian Anderson will miss 4-6 weeks with tilted strain

Ian Anderson will miss 4-6 weeks with tilted strain

The beginning of the brave Ian Anderson He suffered a left slant strain while playing Triple-A Gwinnett, Athletic’s David O’Brien reports (Twitter link). O’Brien notes that he will be missing for at least a month, while Justin Toscano of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution notes Tweets He is expected to miss four to six weeks.

Even if Anderson returns in a month, he will not play again in the regular season. Exactly three weeks left on the schedule, with the season ending on October 5. Anderson could theoretically be available at some point during the playoffs, but it’s hard to imagine Braves carrying him on the series roster at this point. Even if Atlanta advances deep enough in the post-season that Anderson is healthy enough to come back, he won’t have much chance of rebuilding into game form. High-A Rome is the only full season affiliate of Braves that will run the playoffs, and they’re already playing post-season matches. Their season will end well before Anderson has a chance to return to Tal.

The 24-year-old isn’t supposed to get a playoff even if he’s healthy. Anderson spent the last month at Triple-A after being left out of the major league rotation. It came on the heels of up to 5.00 ERA with a career-worst strike rate of 19.7% and a walking rate high of 11% during 22 MLB starts. It sure wasn’t part of a playoff match, and the players love it Jake OdoreseAnd the Mike SorokaAnd the Bryce Elder and maybe Freddy Trannock They are all multiple candidates for relief behind the four supposed best appetizers: Spencer StriderAnd the Max FriedAnd the Charlie Morton And the Kyle Wright.

In all likelihood, this injury closes the books on a tough season for Anderson. The previous third overall pick seemed to solidify himself as Atlanta’s middle-spinning arm during the league’s first two major campaigns. The change specialist carried a 3.25 ERA career into the 2022 season, and only allowed three rounds in 15 rounds across four starts during last year’s World Series. The downturn this year came as a surprise, but Anderson still averages around 94 mph on his Fastball and has actually caused swing hits this season at a 12.3% rate which is the best of his career. This offers some hope that he can settle things in 2023 and beyond.

Anderson will continue to count on Atlanta’s 40-player roster while he is on the injury list in the minor league. He won’t be making a big league salary or earning MLB service during that time, even though he already crossed the two-year service threshold in 2022. He’s on track to reach refereeing for the first time after next season and can be controlled until 2026.
