PITTSBURGH — Rockies left-handed starter Tyler Anderson will undergo surgery on his left knee, manager Bud Black confirmed Tuesday.
The exact date of the surgery has yet to be determined, and whether Anderson will be able to pitch once once again this season remains in question. Black aforementioned the outcome of the procedure will determine the severity of the injury, as well as the timetable for Anderson’s rehabilitation.
Anderson, 29, has inclined poorly this season, going 0-3 with a 10.76 ERA and a 2.13 WHIP in five starts.
Because of galore off years on their schedule, Colorado has been able to get by with a four-man rotation over the last two weeks, but Anderson’s injury will force the team to find a fifth starter. It could be right-hander Jeff Hoffman, who is presently pitching at Triple-A Albuquerque.
