Braves option RHPs Ian Anderson, Bryce Elder to Triple-A

NORTH PORT, Fla. (AP) — The Atlanta Braves opted for Ian Anderson in their Triple-A affiliate, the latest setback for a right-hander whose promising start included five hitless innings in Game 3 of the 2021 World Series .

The Braves announced Tuesday that they have offered both Anderson and right-hander Bryce Elder to Triple-A Gwinnett. Both players were competing for fifth place in the Braves’ starting rotation.

Anderson, 24, went 3-2 with a 1.95 ERA in the pandemic-shortened 2020 season and followed that up by going 9-5 with a 3.58 ERA while making 24 starts in 2021. He was 4-0 with a 1.26 ERA in eight starts in the 2020-21 playoffs.

He was the winning pitcher of the Braves win 2-0 over Houston Astros in Game 3 of 2021 World Series and had a no-hitter when he was retired after five innings.

But he hasn’t been the same since.

Anderson went 10-6 with a 5.00 ERA in 22 starts last season and was sent to minors early August. He went 0-1 with a 6.14 ERA in three preseason appearances this spring. ___
