Shaun Anderson had a rough encore performance after allowing just one run in five innings in his 2019 debut.

On April 11, against Las Vegas, Anderson struggled to find any sort of rhythm and only lasting three innings while giving up six hits and four earned runs.

While it was by no means an outing to remember, there were still some positive takeaways. He allowed just one walk while striking out six, and on the year, he now has an 11-to-2 strikeout-to-walk ratio over eight innings.

That’s a good indication that he’s in command of his pitches, even if the early results have not been as good as he might have hoped.

If he can maintain that strikeout-to-walk ratio throughout the season, he’ll solidify his place as the top pitching prospect in the San Francisco system.

While Andrew Suarez is the next man up for a spot in the rotation, Anderson might not be far behind if he can match last year’s success this year at the Triple-A level.
