Colorado Rockies: Mid-season ranking of the 2018 starters
5 of 6
2. Tyler Anderson
Tyler Anderson had the best outing of the season Friday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He went eight innings while giving up four hits, no earned runs and striking out eight.
This season, he is 5-3 with a 4.23 ERA. He is the first pitcher in this ranking with an adjusted ERA above league average. His ERA+ is 112.
Anderson started slowly this season but has really come on in the month of June. His ERA this month is 3.52.
What is interesting is the fact that despite Anderson being a lefty, he struggles against lefty batters and pitches well against righties. Lefties are hitting .329 while righties are hitting only .232.
