  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Goes on Triple-A IL

    Triple-A Gwinnett placed Anderson on its 60-day injured list March 28.

    Anderson remains on Atlanta's 40-man roster, but because he was optioned to Triple-A in March, he'll begin the season on Gwinnet's 60-day IL rather than the big club's. The right-hander isn't expected to be ready to pitch in games until the second half of the season while he completes his recovery from April 2023 Tommy John surgery.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Optioned to Triple-A

    Anderson (elbow) was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett by Atlanta on Monday.

    Anderson will be sidelined until around midseason while working his way back from Tommy John surgery. Unfortunately for him, he was injured while in the minors, which means he can be optioned rather than placed on the 60-day injured list and earn a major-league paycheck.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: On course in recovery

    Anderson is throwing long toss from 120 feet, and he's on schedule in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    The 25-year-old right-hander underwent surgery in April 2023 and is targeting a midseason return to the mound. Atlanta may not have room for him in its big-league rotation once he's ready for game action however, especially if Anderson can't regain the form that saw him produce a 3.58 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 124:53 K:BB through 128.1 innings in 2021, before a rough 2022 may have provided an early signal that his elbow wasn't 100 percent. Anderson still has a minor-league option remaining, so it wouldn't be surprising if he spent the second half of 2024 at Triple-A Gwinnett.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Aiming for midsummer return

    Anderson (elbow) told reporters Tuesday that he's hoping to be ready to return by the middle of the summer, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    It's a vague timetable, which is not unexpected with Anderson about 10 months removed from Tommy John surgery. The right-hander also revealed that he's altered his delivery a bit since resuming a throwing program, dropping his arm angle so he's not as over-the-top as he used to be. Anderson showed initial promise but struggled in 2022 before missing nearly all of 2023, so Atlanta won't necessarily be counting on him to contribute in 2024.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Undergoes Tommy John surgery

    Anderson underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow Thursday.

    It was announced Tuesday that Anderson would require the reconstructive elbow procedure for a tear of his right ulnar collateral ligament. The 24-year-old will be sidelined will miss the rest of the season and is likely to be out until at least next summer.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Will undergo Tommy John surgery

    Anderson (elbow) will require Tommy John surgery, Jeff Passan and Kiley McDaniel of ESPN.com report.

    Anderson was placed on the injured list at Triple-A Gwinnett last Tuesday after struggling in his first start there, and he has since been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. The 24-year-old will be sidelined until sometime in 2024. He was excellent for Atlanta between 2020-2021 before stumbling to a 5.00 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 97:54 K:BB in 111.2 major-league innings (22 starts) last season.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Nursing sore elbow at Triple-A

    Triple-A Gwinnett placed Anderson on its 7-day injured list Tuesday with a sore right elbow, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    The injury likely explains why Anderson was hit hard while struggling with both his command and control in his season debut at Triple-A last Sunday. The severity of Anderson's elbow injury isn't known at this time, but he's presumably not going to be a rotation option for the big club anytime soon.

  • Braves' Ian Anderson: Brutal start to Triple-A season

    Anderson lasted only two-thirds of an inning for Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday, surrendering six runs (four earned) on four hits and two walks with one strikeout.

    While his defense did him no favors, three of the nine hitters who faced Anderson also launched home runs off the right-hander. After a tough 2022 and a shaky spring, this was not the way the 24-year-old wanted to kick off the new campaign, but it seems as though he's a long way from being ready for a promotion. Expect Bryce Elder to get the nod to join Atlanta's rotation when Max Fried (hamstring) is placed on the IL.
