Proper-hander Chase Anderson has been launched by the Phillies, per a crew announcement.
It’s been a tough couple of years for Anderson, after a stable four-season run with Milwaukee. From 2016 via 2019, he made 116 appearances, 112 begins, throwing 590 innings with an ERA of three.83. Within the midst of all that, the Brewers signed him to an extension, inking a two-year deal in October of 2017, which included choices for 2020 and 2021.
Nonetheless, within the two seasons since, all the pieces has gone to pot for the righty. After being traded to the Blue Jays in November 2019, Anderson had a tough marketing campaign for Toronto/Buffalo. In 33 2/3 innings, he had an ERA of seven.22 after which had his possibility declined, turning into a free agent.
The Phillies took a flier on him, signing him to a one-year, $4MM deal in February this 12 months, hoping for a bounceback. Sadly, that didn’t come to fruition, as Anderson’s 2021 ERA is 6.75 in 48 innings for the Phils. He’ll now seek for one other crew that’s keen to look previous his latest struggles and hope for a return to his earlier kind.
