How acquired: Trade with Diamondbacks (January 30, 2016)

Profile: Acquired from Arizona along with Isan Diaz and Aaron Hill in a 2016 trade that sent Jean Segura and Tyler Wagner to the Diamondbacks. Drafted by the Diamondbacks in 2009 in the ninth round out of Oklahoma, Anderson debuted with Missoula after signing, then split 2010 between Low-A South Bend and High-A Visalia. He returned to Visalia in 2011 and moved up to Double-A Mobile in 2012. After pitching at Triple-A Reno in 2013, Anderson made six starts at Reno to start 2014, then earned a call-up to Arizona in May and made his MLB debut on May 9th, 2014. He spent 2015 in Arizona’s starting rotation before being traded to Milwaukee in January of 2016, then made 31 appearances for the Brewers in 2016, starting 30 games. Working from a high 3/4 armslot, Anderson’s best pitch is his changeup, which he’ll throw in any count, and helps to keep hitters off of his other pitches which include a low-90’s fastball, curveball and slider.

2009: After signing with the Diamondbacks for a reported $85,000, Anderson was sent to Missoula of the Pioneer League to begin his professional career. He saw action in 18 games for the Osprey, starting four, and went 3-1 with a 2.38 earned run average, striking out 48 batters in 45.1 innings of work.

2010: Anderson opened up the 2010 season with Low-A South Bend, starting seven games and posting a 2.82 ERA before receiving a bump to High-A Visalia. He appeared in 19 California League games, starting four, and went 5-3 with a 3.60 ERA. He struck out 83 over 70 innings and held opposing hitters to a .227 batting average.

2011: The Diamondbacks sent Anderson back to Visalia to begin the 2011 season, but after just three starts for the Oaks, he was shut down with a forearm injury that would wind up costing him the remainder of the year.

2012: Healthy again in 2012, Arizona promoted Anderson to Double-A Mobile to open up the year. He went on to make 21 starts for the BayBears and went 5-4 with a 2.86 ERA, earning a spot on the Southern League All-Star team.

2013: Anderson moved up to Triple-A Reno in 2013, but struggled in 26 Pacific Coast League outings. He started 13 games and posted a record of 4-7 with a 5.73 earned run average. He struck out 80 over 88 innings of work, but opposing hitters posted a .301 batting average against him.

2014: Following his struggles in Reno in 2013, Arizona decided to send Anderson back to Double-A Mobile to start the 2014 season. He was dominant in six starts, allowing just three earned runs over 39 innings of work and when the Diamondbacks found themselves in need of a starter, they called up Anderson. He made his big league debut against the White Sox on May 11th, giving up just one run while striking out six over 5.1 innings. He went on to start 21 games for Arizona, going 9-7 with a 4.01 ERA.

2015: After landing a spot with the DBacks in 2014, Anderson was again a fixture in Arizona’s rotation in 2015, starting 21 games. He went 9-7 with a 4.01 ERA, striking out 105 in 114.1 innings of work.

2016: Traded to Milwaukee prior to the start of the 2016 season, Anderson landed a spot in the Brewers starting rotation, making 30 starts. He posted a record of 9-11 with a 4.39 ERA and a WHIP of 1.37.

2017: Anderson made a few adjustments during the offseason and turned himself into one of the top arms in Milwaukee’s rotation.  In 25 starts with the Brewers, Anderson went 12-4 with a 2.74 earned run average, recording 133 strikeouts in 141.1 innings of work.
