Brett Anderson (SP, LAD) - Waiver Wire Pickups


BALLER MOVE: Stream in Most Leagues, Add in NL-Only and Deep Mixed Leagues

ANALYSIS: Brett Anderson has won three straight starts, has tossed eight quality starts in his last nine quality outings and has a 69/26 K/BB rate. So why in the heck is he owned in less than a quarter of Yahoo leagues? I understand the injury risk, as the 96 innings he has pitched this year are his most since 2010, but that does not mean the 27-year-old isn’t worth picking up. His 3.00 ERA on the year is more than enough to stream him at least for this week.

Anderson has two solid match-ups this week, both of which are at home. The Phillies have an 80 wRC+ on the season, the worst in the NL, and they have the second worst ISO in the league at .115. So, while Anderson has a scary HR/FB rate of 13%, the Phillies should not be able to exploit that, especially with only 50 home runs on the year. For the weekend, Anderson faces the Brewers. Against lefties on the year, they rank 28th best in both wRC+ and OPS at 71 and .640, respectively.
