Farm Fresh: 40th-rounder solid in Double-A debut
The last player taken by the Dodgers in the 2015 draft has again made a good first impression.
After being called up from Single-A Rancho Cucamonga, Isaac Anderson surrendered one run and seven baserunners in five innings, while striking out six, in his debut Sunday for Double-A Tulsa.
Anderson started the season in Single-A Great Lakes with a 4.22 ERA in 81 innings (16 starts) to earn a July 17 promotion to Rancho Cucamonga. During his brief stint with the Quakes, the 22-year old right-hander went 2-0 with a 1.13 ERA in 16 innings, limiting opponents to a .155 batting average in his three appearances (two starts).
After playing two seasons at the College of Southern Idaho, Anderson was selected by the Cincinnati Reds in the 19th round of the 2014 draft but instead opted to transfer to Wichita State for his junior season. After going 5-7 with a 3.94 ERA in 77 2/3 innings, Anderson was selected by the Dodgers in the 40th round of last year’s draft.
Anderson finished 2015 with a 1.90 ERA and held opposing lineups to a .236 average in 17 games (10 starts), splitting time between Rookie League ball and Single-A.
