We knew this was coming today. Brett Anderson has been officially called up by the Jays and Leonel Campos gets optioned, after being called up yesterday.
Anderson was a pretty good pitcher, until injuries derailed his career. In 133 games, 121 starts, he has a 3.99 ERA. In 707.2 innings, he’s allowed 755 hits, 195 walks, with 523 strikeouts.
He made two starts in Buffalo, and had a 0.93 ERA. In 9.2 innings, he allowed 4 hits, 2 walks and had 3 strikeouts.
We really could use someone that can pitch us deep into a game, but I don’t think anyone like that is going to pop up suddenly.
Campos has been up and down more times than I can count, but Minor League tells me he’s been optioned 7 times (which doesn’t say much for my counting skills). ML also says that Ryan Tepera was optioned 7 times last year and Mike McCoy was optioned 7 times in 2011. If it isn’t a club record it should be.
