Cincinnati Reds Sign Veteran Right-Handed Pitcher

Bringing him back.

On Saturday, the Cincinnati Reds re-signed 35-year-old right-hander Chase Anderson to a minor-league contract with an invite to spring training.
Anderson made seven starts and two relief appearances for the Reds last season, finishing with a 6.38 ERA, which was a slight improvement from his previous two seasons where he posted a 7.22 and 6.75 mark, so that's not saying much.

Despite a poor Reds roster, Anderson might not even break camp with a rotation spot at this point in his career.

That being said, Anderson could become an option for the Reds as emergency pitching depth, especially given that the competition for the last two rotation jobs consists of Luis Cessa, Justin Dunn, Connor Overton, and Luke Weaver.

Anderson is entering his 10th major league season.

For his career, he holds a 4.25 ERA and has averaged 7.6 K/9 over 183 starts and 962.2 innings of work. Photo Credit: David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports
