Flopping and Slurring and Gambling, Oh My! , worst of the week
The injured list move was retroactive to Thursday.
Senzatella, 28, left Wednesday’s start after allowing a two-run homer to Andrew McCutchen against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He threw 51 pitches before being escorted off the field with a trainer.
Cenzatella’s latest injury came last August after tearing his left anterior cruciate ligament during a game against the St. Louis Cardinals and he had season-ending surgery.
Colorado’s pitching staff has been ravaged by injuries, with German Marquez scheduled to undergo Tommy John surgery and likely miss the remainder of the season. Right-hander Noah Davis (elbow) is on 15 days IL.
Anderson, 35, did not allow a run in two games with the Tampa Bay Rays this season before he was designated to make room on the Tampa Bay roster for left-hander Jake Diekman.
Anderson has pitched with six teams since making his major league debut: Arizona (2014–15), Milwaukee (2016–19), Toronto (2020), Philadelphia (2021), Cincinnati (2022) and Tampa Bay (2020). 2023).
He has a career record of 58–50 in 201 career games (183 starts), with a 4.23 ERA over 967 2/3 innings.
