Anderson fanned three and threw five scoreless innings against the Yankees on Sunday, but he did not factor in the decision.

EDGE Analysis

The 29-year-old left-hander will hit the open market this offseason, after spending time with the Cubs and Jays in 2017. With 66.2 innings in the big leagues over the past two seasons following a 180.1-inning performance with the Dodgers in 2015, Anderson will likely latch on with another club on a low-risk deal with the hope of competing for a rotation spot during spring training.

Anderson (finger) will get the nod Sunday against the Yankees, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson was dealing with blistering in his last start, and has dealt with injuries all season -- he will start only his 13th game of the year Sunday. He will look to end 2017 on a high note, after a disappointing year in which he accrued a 6.97 ERA and a 1.81 WHIP across 50.1 innings. The 29-year-old will enter free agency this winter.

Anderson left Monday's game after aggravating the "hot spot" on his left index finger, TV broadcaster Hazel Mae reports.

EDGE Analysis

The lefty went deep enough to pick up the win, but with the finger issue returning, Anderson's status for his final turn is up in the air. Before this problem surfaced, Anderson once again missed time with a back injury, continuing a trend of poor health that has unfortunately defined his career. The 29-year-old will be a free agent again this winter.

Anderson (4-4) allowed three runs on six hits and three walks across five innings to earn the win Monday against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson put two men in scoring position with no outs in the first, allowing both to score before escaping the frame. He allowed another run in the fifth after three solid innings, but he was staked to a lead at the time and came away with his fourth victory. Anderson had allowed 10 earned runs in 5.2 innings over his previous two starts, so even this mediocre outing was an improvement. He's scheduled to make his final start of the season Sunday against the Yankees.

Anderson (3-4) was rocked to the tune of eight runs on seven hits and two walks over just 1.1 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Yikes. Anderson's first four starts with the Jays had gone surprisingly well, but he started showing cracks in the foundation in his last start (just 4.1 innings with four walks and a wild pitch), and it didn't take long for everything to come crumbling down in this one. With an unappealing road tilt in Boston next on his agenda, most fantasy owners should be looking elsewhere for pitching help.

Anderson (finger) is set to make his scheduled start Wednesday against the Royals, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson's status for Wednesday's start was in question due to a blister that popped up in his previous outing last Thursday, but barring any late setbacks he will be able to take the ball for his next start as scheduled.

Anderson is dealing with a blister that may force him to miss Wednesday's start against the Royals, Laura Armstrong of The Toronto Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson played catch Saturday and said he was monitoring the hot spot, which remains a day-to-day issue. He developed the injury in Thursday's start vs. Minnesota, forcing him from the game after just 4.1 innings. With a 40-man roster at his disposal, manager John Gibbons has a slew of options available if Anderson become unavailable. As of now, the skipper hasn't expressed any concern with the southpaw's Wednesday availability.

Anderson allowed two runs on five hits and four walks while striking out four batters through 4.1 innings during Thursday's loss to Minnesota. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson has provided respectable results for the Blue Jays through four starts with just eight runs allowed over 22 innings. However, fantasy owners will probably want to aim higher down the stretch in the majority of settings. After all, the lefty's 6.3 K/9 isn't moving the fantasy needle. Anderson projects to face the Royals at the Rogers Centre in his next start.

Anderson (1-1) allowed two runs on five hits while striking out five across six innings to earn the victory Saturday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson gave up a two-run homer to Miguel Cabrera in the first inning before silencing the Tigers bats the rest of the way. In his three starts since being acquired from the Cubs, he's posted a 3.06 ERA, and is looking like a player who will help fantasy managers down the stretch. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Twins.

Anderson allowed three runs on seven hits while striking out three batters through six innings during Sunday's loss to Baltimore. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson held the Red Sox to a single run through 5.2 innings in his first start for the Jays, so this was a solid follow-up. The veteran lefty has been a serviceable fantasy asset in the past, and he should remain in the Toronto rotation as long as he's pitching well. As a result, Anderson's value is on the rise, and he could provide a boost over the final weeks of the year. He projects to face the Tigers at the Rogers Centre in his next outing.
