Indians Option Starting Pitcher Cody Anderson to AAA Columbus

The Indians Saturday optioned pitcher Cody Anderson to Triple-A Columbus, a move that will give him a chance to keep throwing on a regular schedule as a starter.

Anderson got a start back on March 13th for the Indians, and lasted just one plus innings allowing six runs, two of which were earned, on four hits with three walks and a strikeout.

He made three spring appearances for the Tribe. Anderson in 2015 and went 7-3 with a 3.05 ERA in 15 starts.

He started to have elbow issues in 2016, which led to him having the Tommy John surgery in 2017.

The Indians Major League Spring Training camp roster is at 44 players.
