Free-agent pitcher Tyler Anderson is signing with the Los Angeles Angels, according to an MLB source. Here’s what you need to know:
- Anderson signed a one-year, $8 million contract prior to the 2022 season with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
- Anderson was 15-5 with a 2.57 ERA and 1.002 WHIP in 2022.
- Anderson was an All-Star in 2022.
Anderson posted his best performance this year at age 32, the first time he was worth even 2 rWAR since 2018, after which he had surgery on his left knee that effectively ended his time with the team that drafted him, the Rockies. He did so by employing just one simple trick that you won’t believe: He stopped giving up hard contact! More pitchers should try this.
