Ian Anderson made his first appearance since the All-Star break, taking the mound for the Stripers last night. He’s been out with a shoulder injury, but thankfully, it doesn’t appear to be too severe of an issue. He’s progressed ever since being placed on the IL, and last night, he completed 2.1 innings for Gwinnett in a rehab start. It was far from a flawless outing; he surrendered two runs on three walks and a couple of hits, but the most important thing is that he didn’t suffer any setbacks.
From a health perspective, everything went smoothly. However, I still wouldn’t expect to see Anderson in Atlanta for a couple of more weeks. He was limited to just 47 pitches last night and will need a couple of more starts to ramp up his workload. All we can hope for is that things continue to trend in the right direction until then because the Braves desperately need his arm in the rotation if they want to win the division and make some noise in the playoffs.
